Lone Protestor Calls for Prosecution (of Conn. A.G. Blumenthal)
CT News Junkie ^ | Tuesday, May 18, 2010 | Christine Stuart

Posted on 05/18/2010 3:15:20 PM PDT by kristinn

A lone protester paced the state Capitol parking lot Tuesday holding a U.S. Marine Corps flag and sign that read, “Prosecute Blumenthal Stolen Valor Act.”

The protester, Jim Bancroft of Windsor Locks, says he served in as a U.S. Marine from 1977 to 1981 and claims that he has defended Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in the past against accusations regarding his military service because during conversations, the two had Blumenthal had always said he served state-side as a reservist.

While the two had nothing in common politically, “I thought he was a decent guy” until he watched the video, Bancroft said.

After watching the video posted along with the New York Times article, Bancroft is calling for Blumenthal to be prosecuted under the Stolen Valor Act of 2005.

Blumenthal should have the courage to resign his office for lieing his Butt off for the last 30 years.

I just hope the voters in Connecticut hold him accountable for his actions and throw his butt out of office come November by voting against him in the race for the Senate.

We are getting rid of One Liar all ready,Chris Dodd.We Damn sure don’t need to replace him with Blumenthal.

He just had a geography issue. he still was a Marine. Typical jarhead just did not know where.

The only good marine, is a submarine!

Sorry but I am an old pigboat sailor and need to give my fellow military a little jib.

The Stolen Valor Act of 2005 (the Act), signed into law by former President George W. Bush on Dec. 20, 2006,[1] is a U.S. law that broadens the provisions of previous U.S. law addressing the unauthorized wear, manufacture, sale or claim (either written or oral) of any military decorations and medals. It is a federal misdemeanor offense, which carries a punishment of imprisonment for no more than 1 year and/or a fine; the scope previously covered only the Medal of Honor.

As much as I'd like to see this SOB nailed, I think they excluded simply lying for John Kerry and Tom Harkin. I think it only covers lying about medals.

Anyone know if he did? I think lying about being in combat missions would infer that you have commendations that you would not. Maybe they can nail his sorry ass anyway.

If he said he “served” in Viet Nam then he’s saying he earned a medal and a ribbon.

But, with that said, no democrat politician gets prosecuted anymore unless he’s not only caught taking bribes but he also must admit it. If he’s only caught (murtha) he gets a pass. Or if he goes against the party (trafficant).

Republicans is a different story.

Bottom line is most of these people would have been shot if they’d served under Washington. Hell, maybe even under Truman.

I wonder what McCain thinks of this guy. Never mind.

The sub I was on, every time we came into port was guarded by Marines behind a gate and the Marines were always proud to tell us, “they never lost a gate.”

Oh, “he was just misunderstood”. He was told his plane was going to Vietnam and it landed in Japan. He thought he was in Vietnam and was astonished that he didn’t see any guns. /s

Stolen Valor Act?

Can we go after John F. Kerry with this too? IMO Kerry has stolen more valor than this idiot Blumenthal.

Some of you who live outside the Nutmeg State may be wondering where you heard Blumenthal's name before. On May 30, 2009, Blumenthal was on Glenn Beck where he was ripped for flauting the law when he went after AIG bonuses. Beck said: "You are an insult to George Washington, sir. Washington made it very clear that we are a respecter of laws, not of men. For your own political gain, you decided to go after the AIG people because it is a popular thing."

Howzaboutdat? A Senator wannabe who is a political opportunist with no regard for the law.........the "perfect successor" to Chris Dodd.

THE CROWN PRINCE - THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LIFE OF DICK BLUMENTHAL
Hartford Courant, Sunday, Oct 3, 2004
By Elizabeth Hamilton, investigative reporter

EXCERPT It requires a good bit of effort to find out how much the Blumenthal's paid for it or, for that matter, what it even looks like. Search the land records in Greenwich Town Hall and you won’t find the Blumenthal name anywhere. >{? The 5,608-square-foot house, with a market value of $2.5 million in 2001, was transferred for $1 and ``other considerations’’ to the ``John and Abigail Trust,’’ named by his wife, Blumenthal said, after the second president and his wife. ``[Cynthia] didn’t want it to be reported that the attorney general bought a house on such and such a street,’’ Blumenthal said, adding that they own their home.

Given Blumenthal’s financial disclosure statement, it would be implausible that they wouldn’t. The statement lists 13 trust funds held in either his wife’s or children’s names, and one blind trust held jointly by him and his wife.

Cynthia Blumenthal is the daughter of Peter Malkin, a Greenwich real estate mogul who heads the investor group that, according to a 2002 disclosure owns other Manhattan properties. Mrs Blumenthal and her children owned partnership interests in 30 real estate ventures, including the Empire State Building, ......that lit up red for Communist China.

I doubt you will find one. Especially after he got out. He's a flaming liberal that tried to stay out of service but only went into the reserves after 4 deferments. I bet he's scrubbed pics of him in any service photo.

He's a pure scumbag.

Well, there are definite security reasons for keeping opaque the home address of the state’s top cop. But the rest...Blind trusts! Trust funds! Moguls! Real Estate ventures! Are there any politicians out there who actually WORK, like normal people do?/s;)

That's OK. I make up for it every Thursday morning by jabbing a submariner buddy for acting like he's spent too much time under water...

It’s not the time under water. It’s the surfacing that causes the problems...
