CAIR Auctioning Notorious Letter From Former Rep. Allen West On eBay
The price has more than doubled from the initial $1,000 since it went up for auction — the good news is that shipping is free:
A letter addressed to the Florida chapter of CAIR, printed on West’s stationery and signed by the former congressman, is currently listed on eBay for a starting bid of $1,000. It’s described as “possibly [the] shortest letter from Congress in US History.”
The note — which features the lone word, “NUTS!” — was reported on in 2011, when West gave the terse response to local CAIR leaders after being called upon by the group to denounce “anti-Muslim activists.” At the time, the Miami New Times called it perhaps “the dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery.”
