CREDO going after the Tea Party 10

WASHINGTON -- A liberal super PAC is launching what it is calling as a multimillion dollar campaign to "Take Down the Tea Party Ten."

CREDO which is associated with Act Blue will use the new big-spending super PAC model. It can accept unlimited donations, to back extensive local organizing and grassroots "education" aimed at defeating 10 members of Congress it sees as the Tea party bottom feeders

The first six lawmakers targeted by the group are Reps. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), Steve King (R-Iowa), Allen West (R-Fla), Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), and Chip Cravaack (R-Minn.). Four more will be chosen by CREDO's members.

Although super PACs can take unlimited donations, CREDO is a grassroots organization with 11,000 donors,

Sean Duffy complained that his $174,000 Congressional salary was too low which is certain to hurt him in the next election:

Rightardia has written about Rep. Allen West numerous times. According to Wikipedia: 

While serving in Taji, Iraq, LTC West received information from an intelligence specialist about a reported plot to ambush him and his men.The alleged plot reportedly involved Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi, a civilian Iraqi police officer. West, who was not responsible for conducting interrogations in Iraq and had never conducted nor witnessed one, had his men detain Hamoodi.

Hamoodi was beaten by four soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion on the head and body. West then fired his pistol near Hamoodi's head, after which Hamoodi provided West with names and information, which Hamoodi later described as "meaningless information induced by fear and pain."

West was charged with violating articles 128 (assault) and 134 (general article) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. During a hearing held as part of an Article 32 investigation in November 2003, West stated, "I know the method I used was not right, but I wanted to take care of my soldiers."

The charges were ultimately referred to an Article 15 proceeding, supposedly due to command influence, rather than court-martial. West was fined $5,000. LTC West accepted the judgment and retired with full benefits in the summer of 2004.
West recently came under for fire for saying this at at a Lincoln Day dinner in West Palm beach: 

We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain't on the table. Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.
Rightardia's plecostomus is named Allen West
We are not surprised CREDO is going after for Allen West. West is a Tea Party plecostomus.
