Rep. Allen West was supposed to speak at a local chapter of the NAACP in Florida. That was until he was uninvited from the same event because he was criticizing Democrats in the U.S. House. Apparently they don't like being called communists.
Gore was referring, of course, to West's remarks at an April 10 campaign event in Jensen Beach.
"I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party," West said that night at the Jensen Beach Community Center. After a long pause, he added, "It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."
