Then I read he went in in 1977.

That was Bancroft that the article says went in in 1977. Unless you read it elsewhere, in which case, never mind.

The idea of prosecuting him for lying about being in ‘Nam is a bit beyond the pale. This is not perjury (he didn’t lie under oath). The harm this exposure does to his candidacy and his career is sufficient punishment for now.

Another turd like Murtha? I know I met Murtha when I was at Quantico in ‘70-’71. He had a pig face and was soft as dough even then.

I knew that turd from way back then, hated him before I found out that he was a congress critter thief and whore and traitor.

I live about 30 miles from Johnstown, Pa but don't live in that district.

Bluementhal should be prosecuted under the Stolen Valor Law.

He is currently receiving a very heavy ballswashing in WFSB live by a bunch of Marine Corps League. “There is a nicer, more responsible or better advocate for CT veterans.” Fools.

Veteran calls for prosecution of Blumenthal

That's the title. Both URLs have the same title as above. I don't change titles. At most, I may add original subtitles, or I may add my own subtitles within parentheses.

I just read another story, and it says:

“Blumenthal served in the Marine Reserves during Vietnam, but not in Vietnam”.

So, my bad, I misread the original. He is in fact a Vietnam era veteran.

Blumenthal is speaking?

I don't know how they do it. If I somehow lost my mind to claim I'd earned some military honor then I'd never again be able to show my face.

I haven’t been able to stand this guy for a very long time and was dreading him going to the senate.

I agree. That a thing is despicable shouldn't make it illegal.

How about prosecuting every falsely claimed college degree on employment applications? You may have lost a job or a promotion to such a phony.

“I don’t know how they do it. If I somehow lost my mind to claim I’d earned some military honor then I’d never again be able to show my face.”

Especially for a Marine!! I was at an event in December 2008 at which a Marine, severely injured in Iraq, was being honored. Blumenthal was the main “celebrity” speaker. It was an outdoor event and freezing cold, so I cannot remember a word of what he said, but now I look back on that and feel he dishonored that Marine and many others by claiming or inferring to have fought in Vietnam.

Thye just busted a guy at Harvard University for falsifying his academic records, stellar by the way, and for id theft, credit fraud and regular fraud for getting scholarship money on false pretenses. They only caught him after he applied for a Rhodes scholarship!

Don’t know much about this scumbag, but he’s an AG, and lied consistently and constantly for years.

An Attorney General! Can’t get scummier than that.

How many people has he nailed for fraud and perjury.....

Words fail.......IMO, but I’m not a lawyer, but disbarment should be meted out. He should not be allowed to practice law anywhere, but, then again, the Bar may not look upon it with the same anger that some would.

This liar seems like a good candidate for the Rat ticket. He can deny his lies all he wants, dance and spin like Slick Willy, but he ain't Slick Willy.

If he gets the Rat nomination the Republicans need to hammer him nonstop.

And he would actually be an improvement. Blumenthal did criticize the plan to have a civilian trial for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

I have spoken hundreds of times about my own service, which was just after the “VietNam Era”.

Not ONCE would ANYBODY have been left with any impression that I was in VN.

This is something you don’t “mis-speak” about or have a few “misplaced words”.

Those who were IN VietNam have just as much appreciation for my service and my defending them and their families in the years following VN. There is no reason for any military man to make claims about the service they did for our country - whether that service was voluntary or coerced by being drafted, if our service is honorable there is no need for justification or excuse. We all honor each other’s service.

Blumenthal’s LIES about what he did while attached to the military are intentional and atrocious.

I can’t believe that a single person who served finds this forgivable.

Blumenthal is a Demwit, of course, but it's not right in the headline. And his lying about serving in Vietnam would be equated -- by the very same media -- with a Republican having been issued a ticket for jaywalking. Thanks neverdem.
