Rep. Allen West Fires Intern For Re-Tweeting Pro-Gay Tweet

Same-sex marriage foe Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has fired the intern who re-tweeted a message responding to Tracy Morgan’s homophobic rant sent out by the openly-gay band the Scissor Sisters. “Dear Tracy Morgan’s son: if you are gay, you can TOTALLY come live with me. We’ll read James Baldwin & watch Paris is Burning. xxANA,” the group wrote. Moments after West’s intern forwarded the message, the congressman’s staff deleted the tweet and apologized for the “unauthorized” use of the account. “Very sorry about the unauthorized RT. We were not hacked, an intern made an error. Apologies to all.”
