Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) during a speech at the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial on Saturday was in no mood to deal with his Democrat “tracker,” a woman assigned to follow and record his every move, and publicly shamed her for following him to the event.
“There’s a person here that has been tracking me around,” Rep. West said. “She is here for political purposes. And young lady, I ask that you leave. Because you are disrespectful to the men and women who have given themselves to this great nation. We do not need, we do not care for what you are presenting here.”
“So if you have any amount of respect within you, I ask that you leave right now, turn off that camera, and stop using this for political purposes,” he added.
According to Buzzfeed, if you listen closely at the end of the video, it sounds like Rep. West made his tracker a little emotional.
