West: Wasserman-Shultz "most vile, unprofessional & despicable member"

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFLX) - A War of words erupts between two high profile South Florida members of Congress.

Tea Party favorite Allen West sent a harsh bombshell of an email to his colleague Debbie Wasserman-Shultz. This after Wasserman-Shultz, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, blasted the GOP's budget plan and singled out West in her criticism.

Wasserman-Shultz gave her remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives. "The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a member from South Florida," said Wasserman-Shultz.

West fired back in an e-mail calling the Congresswoman from Broward County the "... most vile, unprofessional and despicable member".

West forwarded his complaints to the House Majority Leader John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
