"….(Vice Chair of state party) led effort to ‘remove the party’s account from Gab, an alternative social media site popular with neo-Nazis and other extremists’ West opposed deleting the account, and after the SREC (State Republican Executive Committee) sided with (the Vice chair) West created his own personal account on Gab"

On Twitter, former House Speaker Dennis Bonnen, called West’s email (to the Vice Chair calling her, a cancer survivor, a ‘cancer’) “nothing but a tirade of misogyny and disrespect by a man pitifully floundering to be right when he is so blatantly wrong.”
