In a odd twist, Conservative WFTL radio talk show host Joyce Kaufman says she has decided not to work as chief of staff for Congressman elect Allen West on Thursday - the reason an apparent connection between the Wednesday lockdown of Broward County schools and an email and phone call threatening mass shootings.
The Pembroke Pines Police, received an e-mail addressed to Kaufman late Tuesday, threatening a mass shooting at government buildings in Broward Country. A subsequent phone call to WTFL triggered the Broward County schools lockdown.

Kaufman said she didn't want to tarnish West's reputation.``I will not be used in an electronic lynching by proxy,''
Joyce Kaufman is an out spoken conservative radio talk show host who has come under fire for her comments regarding "iillegal immigrants"and for statements like "...if ballots don't work, bullets will."
