By Javier ManjarresUnfortunately, some of my friends have jumped the shark in their efforts to protect Representative Will Weatherford, who is also the Redistricting Chairman in the Florida Legislature, and happens to have been singled out as the sole villain regarding the ‘Screw Allen West’ campaign.
Fellow Florida blogger Sarah Rumpf unfortunately jumped blindly into this chess game, but she was not privy to the specific information as to the real dealings behind the scandal in Tallahassee regarding redistricting and its changes to Allen West’s congressional district. I pointed out to Sarah that she was out of the loop and her league with regards to this issue, and in her efforts to defend Weatherford, she only made him look worse.

Weatherford has been peppered with criticism about his specific involvement in the scandal, as Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin have both seriously chastised his involvement. While I defended Weatherford from those who tried to pin all of the blame in this matter on him, he was nonetheless a member of the redistricting committee that collectively are deserving of blame.

West will not corroborate any assertion written in a newspaper, blog or other source without him knowing first hand or having sufficient corroborating facts to form an opinion or for him to believe what is either being said or written.
In a television interview on CBS, West questioned the possible motives of the existing term-limited state legislators.
