GOP Rep. West Urges Black Voters to Follow ‘Underground Railroad’ Away From Democrats


Republican Rep. Allen West, describing himself as a “modern-day Harriet  Tubman,” said Wednesday he wants to lead black voters on an underground railroad  away from the Democratic  Party.

The Florida congressman, who is black, was responding to a raucous town hall  meeting hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Tuesday in Detroit.  Participants vented to Democratic Rep. Maxine  Waters, who in turn voiced frustration with President  Obama and asked the crowd to “unleash” her and other black lawmakers on the White  House.
