MONONGAHELA, August 2) -- Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey -- responding to Jack Murtha's statement today that "I don't blame the staff sergeant for lashing out," in response to a law suit filed against Murtha by Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, claiming defamation -- today released the following statement:
"'I don't blame the staff sergeant for lashing out.'
"That's what Jack Murtha had to say today, responding to news that Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich has sued Murtha for defamation of character and libel.
"'Lashing out?' Filing a lawsuit for libel and defamation is not 'lashing out' -- it is using the legal system to protect one's good name.
"Leave it to Jack Murtha to libel a soldier and then call it 'lashing out' when the soldier responds in the appropriate manner.
"Jack Murtha was wrong when he said Frank Wuterich and the Marines under his command 'killed innocent civilians in cold blood' before the first Marine was charged, before the first court-martial was convened, before the first soldier was convicted.
"Jack Murtha wasn't there. Jack Murtha has no idea what happened there that day, other than what he has been told. But that didn't stop him from declaring as fact that American Marines had 'killed innocent civilians in cold blood' before the investigations were even complete.
"Shame on you, Jack Murtha. You should know better.
"Jack Murtha, of all people, should understand better than most the importance of letting the legal system work before rendering a judgment. If it hadn't been for the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven beyond a reasonable doubt, Jack Murtha's congressional career would have ended 26 years ago, when the FBI got him on tape first refusing a $50,000 bribe, and then saying, 'At this point, you know, we do business together for a while. Maybe I'll be interested and maybe I won't
Now, I won't say that some day, you know, I, if you made an offer, it may be I would change my mind some day.'
Thanks! That helps.
I haven't read it yet, but I just know this is going to hurt.
"I don't blame the staff sergeant for lashing out,"
Yup! I was right it hurts. Somebody on his staff really needs to tell him to stfu. He's his own worst enemy.
LOL! He does tend to have the effect on people doesn't he?
Irey doesn't have enough money to conduct a poll but Murtha sure does. Now gee, I wonder why he hasn't? I'm sure his constituents would be very interested in such poll results. It would be a huge wake-up call to those who are not political wonks and are going about their lives largely unaware of the growing scandal swirling around traitor Moutha. To conduct a poll one would have to address the challenger's issues, and addressing them raises public awareness. Moutha is counting on keeping his constituents in the dark as a strategy to win.
It's actually laughable how hard the Mouth is trying to ignore Diana Irey. And she's beotch-slapping him eight ways to Sunday without even breaking a sweat on her ladylike brow!
LOL! I bet he would curl right up on her lap. But judging by the responses, he might have to wait in line ;-)
LOL! I think a number of our heroes wanted her to curl up in their laps last week! ;*)
