Right Wing Journalist Accuses Allen West of Adultery, Sexual Harassment

Charles C. Johnson, a controversial right-wing muckraking blogger, is publicly accusing one-term Congressman Allen West of being a well-known and multiple adulterer and of sexual harassing at least two female employees of Pajamas Media, the conservative blogging network that used to actually matter.

West, who was fired from Pajamas Media, grabbed the breast of then 24-year-old, Michelle Fields in front of an elevator while the two of them were colleagues. Fields declined to be interviewed on record but three different sources at PJ Media confirmed this story. (Update: Fields repeatedly and emphatically refused comment on the record and asked that I change her earlier confirmation which I have now done.)

According to sources at PJ Media and some who have since left–the organization is apparently shutting down–West also undressed himself in front of communications professional Sarah Culvahouse Mills. Mills actually drafted the press release that led to West’s departure. Mills, who is married and the daughter of McCain lawyer A.B. Culvahouse Jr, reportedly sought therapy for the incident.

West, who is also married, has a string of women that Gotnews.com’s editor-in-chief Charles C. Johnson has tracked down over the past two years. His marital infidelity is an open secret in conservative circles but a taboo subject among conservative activists who point to his military record and (less vocally) his race as an asset to the conservative movement.

I’m gonna have to stock up on popcorn for this one.

    Not surprised but disgusted and definitely believe the victims. Who will have a lot more to worry about now than their popcorn supplies I fear.

    Also, respect to Charles C. Johnson for this in terms of actually publishing and doing the “story” here.

    Given the well-known family values of wingnuts, who could possibly believe this?

    STOP LAUGHING!

    Completely off-topic:

    “West, who was fired from Pajamas Media, grabbed the breast of then 24-year-old, Michelle Fields in front of an elevator while the two of them were colleagues. ”

    What terrible writing! Is this guy a professional?

    Look, these things happen. I can’t count the number of times I’ve stripped down in front of a communications professional. Neither can I count the number of times I’ve been fired. Probably the same number, actually.

    MO – count your lucky stars it wasn’t a ‘communications amateur’ – now that would be embarrassing…

    I see no sign of this on the site.

    I won’t be surprised if the allegations are true and feel sorry for the woman who will now suffer the wraith of MRAs and West’s supporters. No doubt this will be painted as some kind of liberal plot to discredit West, who has done no wrong or at least was forgiven by Jesus … on Easter.

    It could be worse…he might have been caught wanking in his car…

    But seems his family values shtick remains pristine, after all what are these slutty wimmins’ for if not to serve as a reminder of the dangers relating to being waylaid by Jezebels at the elevator, god forgave him anyway and told him to move on and instructed him to run for the GOP presidential nomination…sometime…he is praying hard on that one, all is good and he is a better man for it.

    He couldn’t have done that. He wasn’t even there. The guy he was holding down an mock executing can back his alibi.

    Gotta love the high moral standards of conservatism. “We’ll look the other way on the infidelity and sexual harassment as long as we get a token negro who committed war crimes.”
