Fla. Rep. Allen West likely violated federal statute by diving with a U.S. flag

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla) planted a U.S. flag in an artificial reef during a Sunday diving trip in Dearfield Beach, likely violating a federal statute that makes clear the stars and stripes can never touch water.

To make matters worse, the controversial representative posed for a photo-op, gesturing a military salute, that was then posted publicly. Talking Points Memo reported the congressman was celebrating Flag Day, which is today.

The rule in question is Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8, Subsection B of the United States Code.

West, a war veteran, has been the subject of several controversial statements since he took office earlier this year. In April he told listeners liberal women “have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient.”

He is now a 2012 election priority of Emily’s List, a politically active pro-choice group that among other things targets conservative legislators to vote them out. From TAI’s sister site The Florida Independent:

West made it to a list of five conservative freshman representatives who meet a “special criteria” for Emily’s List. One: They have been exceedingly anti-choice and anti-woman for such a short amount of time in office. And two: There is a Democratic woman angling to take the seat. Also on the list are Reps. Charlie Bass, R-N.H., Chip Cravaack, R-Minn., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., and Joe Heck, R-Nev. #
