Former Congressman Allen West is leaving his job at Pajamas Media after an altercation with a female staffer in which he allegedly called her a "Jewish American princess," BuzzFeed learned on Thursday.

"In order to focus on political interests, Allen West will transition from his full-time role as director of programming for Next Generation.TV to a twice-a-month contributor of written commentary on PJMedia.com, effective October 1, 2013," PJ Media financier Aubrey Chernick wrote to staff in an email from September 16.
