WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Newly elected Florida Rep. Allen West withdrew a job offer to a Jewish talk show host who called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "garbage" and said Jewish Democrats "don't embrace being Jewish."

West, who in the Nov. 2 elections ousted incumbent Ron Klein, a Democrat, from his Broward and Palm Beach counties area district, issued a statement Thursday expressing his "deep regret" that Joyce Kaufman would not work for him as his chief of staff.
