Video: Rep. Allen West Refuses to Name Communists

| by Michael Allen

Last week, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) claimed that “there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party."

West has not backed down from his assertion that membership in the Congressional Progressive Caucus is akin to Marxism.

This morning, in an interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien (video below), West repeated the charges, but refused to identify which members he believed to be Communists.
