Fox News has hired former Tea Party congressman Allen West to serve as a network contributor, according to a report in The Washington Post.
West served for just two years in Congress after a career in the military. Since losing his seat in Flordia’s 22nd (after being redistricted into Florida’s 18th), he has been hosting a show for “Next Generation TV,” which is owned by conservative website PJ Media.*
“Representative West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide a valuable point of view to the Fox News lineup,” Fox News Vice President Bill Shine said in a statement.
