Apparently, believe it or not, there appears to be a standard at PJ Media after all:
Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) will not be working for a conservative online broadcaster but insists he was not fired from his position, Buzzfeed reported on Thursday.
Both West and PJ Media investor Aubrey Chernick released statements to staffers on Sept. 16 saying West would leave the company effective Oct. 1, each of them saying West’s departure was voluntary. West had been working for PJ Media as the director of programming for NextGeneration.TV while hosting his own show since January 2013.
“No I didn’t get fired,” West told Buzzfeed. “I’m leaving to pursue political aspirations. That’s it. There’ll be a statement that comes out and it’s effective in October.”
But when asked to comment on whether he told a female employee to “shut up” and called her a “Jewish American princess,” West told Buzzfeed, “There was an exchange, that’s all.”
In his memo to PJ Media staff, West said, “I will be giving up my position as director of programming at Next Generation.TV to get back on the front lines to expand the message of constitutional conservatism across our country.”
Everyone who comes into contact with West wants nothing to do with him- the military, his district, and now PJ Media. These tea party heroes sure are something, aren’t they?
