Skip to comments.Fla. Dems reveal opponent's SSN (Col. Allen West)
Posted on 09/21/2010 4:07:58 PM PDT by pillut48
The Florida Democratic Party has offered to pay to protect Republican congressional candidate Allen West from identity theft because it sent out a mailer featuring his Social Security number.
West, a retired Army colonel and YouTube sensation running against Rep. Ron Klein, was hit with a tax lien since paid in 2005, and the state party attacked him for it and other financial problems in a mailer sent out to 22nd District voters over the weekend.
The piece featured a photo of an IRS document showing the tax lien and while Wests address was blacked out, his Social Security number and his wifes Employment Identification Number were clearly visible.

Silver lining: this can turn into free publicity for Col. West's campaign, and make his name known nationally! ALL of America needs to know about this great conservative!!
Maybe LifeLock could support this guy with lifetime free credit protection?
Oversight my ASS!!! If they will STOOP to this level, what ELSE are they willing to do to win!!!
Cheap Democrat fix....
So why is a paid off tax lien from 5 years ago an issue anyway?
Maybe he could file legal charges against scumbags.
Too bad some Republicans couldn’t accidentally reveal the SSNs of the staff at that Democrat office. Just by mistake of course.
The Obama Regime gives confidential IRS tax documents to Florida thugs.
Isn’t this a federal crime?
More interesting is Barak Obama’s inexplicable social security number.
You're thinking of the "other" U.S. where crimes were punished, wrongs were righted, and justice done. We are now living in Obamaville and those days of good winning over evil are gone.
Nothing like a nice, straightforward admission of guilt.
Allen West’s popularity just junmped another 10pts...
any polls on this race???
He uses a random number generator each time.
“Isn?t this a federal crime?”
He needs to lawyer up and get with the State Attorney. Meanwhile file a civil suit. Its going to take a long time to get new SSN’s and protect himself from identity theft.
There’s a lot more info to be gleaned from the comments section at the link. Local people,,, who know what’s goin’ on. And read the apology from the Klein camp! Disgusting! Not an apology, but an attack!
He also needs to use this against them politically.
“see, you can’t even trust the Democrats to keep you safe from identity theft, how can you trust any of their campaign promises?”
The one that’s the same as some dead guy born in 1895 or something?
Yeah, what a coinkydink *that* was...
< inching closer to birther territory... >
I hope Mr West has some legal recourse.
So why is a paid off tax lien from 5 years ago an issue anyway?
Why not...if they can get away with murder they would do it. All those voters out there put Obama in office so quite obviously we are stupid, uninformed and will believe anything the demon-crats tell us. Counting down the days
Anyone have a link to his youtube?
Democrats can’t help behaving like scum.
Isn?t this a federal crime?
Not when you are a dimoKKKRAT and Eric Holder is running the DOJ.
Demagogues prove yet again to be vicious nasty snakes! Klein’s non-apology is nothing but another lowlife attack. Crush these bastards — Col. West should be supported by a maximum NATIONAL campaign to emphasize the depravity of the socialist state which controls too much private info and can ruin the lives of private individuals who have no recourse.
He should sue the snot out of them or have them brought up on charges. Surely this must be a crime?
The second lien was placed on our home by the school district for non payment of property taxes. But, we had paid the taxes in an escrow account and the mortgage holder had failed to pay the taxes. It took a while to straighten this out, but they finally paid the taxes and late fees.
A few short years ago I remember going to a very large protest outside the Palm Beach County Comission headquaters off Jog Road.
They tried to steal a presidential election there remember?
This is chump change to them.
Crappola, two years ago Franken stole a demned election in Minnesota for goodness sake.
These butt head Dems would crucify Christ.
And yet, no one can gain access to zero’s important papers. I hate the RATS more and more each day.
Yep. What Klein did was an a-hole move and messed with the wrong person.
West, a retired Army colonel and YouTube sensation running against Rep. Ron Klein, was hit with a tax lien -- since paid -- in 2005, and the state party attacked him for it and other financial problems in a mailer sent out to 22nd District voters over the weekend. The piece featured a photo of an IRS document showing the tax lien -- and while West's address was blacked out, his Social Security number and his wife's Employment Identification Number were clearly visible.I think retaliation in kind is in order here. Thanks pillut48.
It’s funny that Demorats can get West’s tax lien papers and we cannot get Obama’s BC.
Let me guess he abused his power as a congressman to gain access to information with-which to slime him with. How typical.
Things will no doubt get dirtier than this dispicable act.
He is a good man, I am sending extra money to him. Take that you Dem beetch-ez!
If I was Col. West I’d demand an investigation of how the Democrats got hold of a private IRS document. Or does the IRS release these to the public?
“Democrats cant help behaving like scum.”
Or they are just that stupid. Another reason the Dim’s cannot be in control.
West needs to contact the IRS and/or the FBI to find out how the Dems got his SSN. Release of SSN to unauthorized individuals is a federal crime.
“Federal laws that require the use of an SSN generally limit its use to the statutory purposes described in each of the laws. For example, the Internal Revenue Code, which requires the use of SSNs for certain purposes, declares tax return information, including SSNs, to be
confidential and prescribes both civil and criminal penalties for unauthorized disclosure. Similarly, the Social Security Act, which requires the use of SSNs for a number of different purposes, declares that SSNs
obtained or maintained by authorized individuals on or after October 1, 1990, are confidential and prohibits their disclosure.”
That is the quote of the year!
Sure would make a great ad! Send that idea to Lifelock! Rush would like it too!
Guess we think alike! :)
I hope that Col. West hits Klein and his Democratic pricks so hard that they land in Cuba where they don’t need no stink’in Social Security Numbers, only Communist Party card numbers.
:-) Aw, shucks. < blushes >
Anyone wants to use it has my permission! Have to check with JimRob first, he owns all of our stuff, doesn’t he? But I don’t think he’d mind. ;-)
Isn’t this, oh, ILLEGAL?!
“So why is a paid off tax lien from 5 years ago an issue anyway?”
To the property owner, it is a non-issue.
To Democrapic voters, who are far less likely to own property than Republicans, it sounds like some sort of tax cheating. Doubly so for poor Democraps.
‘Sides, from a Democrapic perspective, revealing Wests’ SS number is a sure way to cause West to take time off from waxing your sorry a$$ and deal with damage control and security issues.
