A Cybercast News Service investigation also reveals that one of Murtha's former Democratic congressional colleagues and a fellow decorated Vietnam veteran, Don Bailey of Pennsylvania, alleges that Murtha admitted during an emotional conversation on the floor of the U.S. House in the early 1980s that he did not deserve his Purple Hearts.

..from the article, do take note, it was a fellow DEMOCRAT that exposed his kerry like medal awards in question. Another one of these "no military records indicate" stories. And of course Murtha won't release his military records

Unlike Kerry...which we know that the Navy gave him a dishonorable discharge to start (for his Paris trip to visit the North Vietnam representatives)...and Jimmy Carter gave him a cleaned up discharge, which states that its cleaned up...Murtha appears to have some kinda baggage in the midst of these records...either disciplinary action or a lost stripe. Even if Murtha released the medal paperwork...it'd probably make him look ok in this situation. There is something bigger in those records which he really doesn't want the public to see. Normally, I wouldn't care....he's a loser from Penn and not worth talking about. But he has stepped out of the shadows and pretends that he is representing us veterans at the table...and the spotlight ought to shine completely on the man (and his past). He isn't as clean as he pretends...and he ought not stand in front of the national media as some kinda hero.
