Allen West Fights for His Facebook

The Facebook account may include the blue “verified” checkmark, but retired Lt. Col. Allen West currently isn’t in control of his Facebook page.

“I was sitting at home about two weeks ago and I was contacted, that someone that I never heard of, never knew was bringing a defamation lawsuit against me and some other people.”

“So come to find out what happened was the Words-n-Ideas LLC, which is Michele Hickford, that had the rights to the allenbwest.com domain, well, she published a story from another person on to that website and I did not know about it – and it ended up being about this individual.”

West says he has since terminated his contract with Words-n-Ideas but they have not turned over control of his Facebook page.

“I come to find out, while I’m up here at MRC (Thursday), is that she has rebranded the Facebook book page that was me, my public figure, but still used my name as the verification to do so – instead of surrendering those administrative rights.”

“We’ve contacted Facebook about that because another person cannot own your means of communications. Another person cannot own you. So, hopefully, Facebook will do the right thing.”
