I stayed out of the Kerry medal scandal and intend to stay out of this one.
Marc Morano on right talk about this article now!
Murtha's "Kerry" Medals*Showdown in Iran*Backstage Alito Hearings* Wed 1-18 only on RIGHTALK.com!
Back in June'05 his ties to the lobbying firm of KSA Consulting (his brother Kit is a senior partner, along with Carmen V. Scialabba, who worked 27 years for Rep. Murtha) prompted criticism from Keith Ashdown of Taxpayers for Common Sense.
An article titled "Lobbyist's Brother Guilded House Bill" was printed in the LA Times. It stated that KSA received $20.8 million from the bill that Murtha pushed thru the House.
Funny how Rep. Murtha just happened to start bashing Bush and the war, about the same time.
Maybe he wanted to divert attention away from his curious action with the lobbyist group........he can now say that any investigation is payback.
I say lets clean house.....get rid of all the crooks.
Stolen Valor Act of 2005
For the love of God NO REPUBLICANS SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN THIS! It doesn't matter if they are telling the truth. They will be slimed by the self-righteous lefties as troop bashers. Let his fellow Democrat congressman prove it and argue for it.
Murtha sees the Iraq war as an impediment to his ability to take pork projects to his district. As long as a the US military is activly engaged he can't compete with BS justifications for military pork for his district.
If he was a real military "hero" he would have down played his service as "hero" grade. His leaning on his military service has Kerry-esque credibility problems.
