Democrats think Allen West has a biker problem



Democrats on Saturday were feverishly circulating this news report about a motorcycle gang and Allen West, the tea party Republican challenging U.S. Rep. Ron Klein of Boca Raton. West says it's bull -- and Democrats would have you think he's Sonny Barger -- but he backed out of an appearance today before a group of motorcyclists. West, by the way, rides a Honda cruiser. In an interview with the St. Petersburg Times last month, he said if he wins, he'll ride to Washington.
