Rep. Allen West is making waves again, this time by endorsing the infamous ‘Joe the Plumber’ (a.k.a. Sam Wurzelbacher) for Congress this fall. Wurzelbacher became a household name when John McCain made him a centerpiece of his campaign for the presidency. The Huffington Post reports:

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, more commonly known as “Joe The Plumber” for his role in the 2008 presidential campaign, won the endorsement of Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) in his bid for Congress in Ohio.

In a campaign video posted Thursday by Wurzelbacher, West says, “One of the great things about Joe is that he represents the genuineness of the American people. Someone who has served in the military, and now is trying to answer the call to serve at a greater level.”

He adds, “I look forward to Joe being a colleague of mine in Washington, D.C.”
