An organization supporting one of Rep. Allen West (R-FL)’s District 18 Democratic challengers, Patrick Murphy, launched a website earlier this week highlighting the outrageous and sometimes completely inaccurate statements West has made over the past couple of years. West is widely known for his controversial remarks on such topics as Social Security and Medicare.
The website, WhatWestSaid.com, features a bobble head-like figure of West standing behind a podium with a word cloud next to him. You can scroll through the different quotes, such as “If you support Medicare the way it is now you can kiss the United States of America goodbye,” and “Social Security Disability…is a form of modern, 21st-century slavery.”
The only thing on the page, other than the comments, is a spot to make donations to Murphy’s campaign.
Every quote on the site has been found to be completely false or inaccurate by Politifact.
