West, who lost his bid for re-election to Democrat Patrick Murphy in November, transferred $250,000 in unspent money from his campaign account to the foundation. The same amount was also transferred to American Legacy Guardians.
In addition to the creation of a foundation bearing his name, West recently joined PJTV as their “Next Generation” director and has been said to be considering a run for a higher office in the 2014 election cycle.
A message left for foundation spokesperson, Michele Hickford, has not been returned. At the moment, neither organization has an online footprint through a website or social media presence.
