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.

Go get 'em Race!
Hey - I know that guy!!!!!
Go get him Jim!!!!
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.
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.
Yea!I forgot.They didn’t have GPS back in 1969.
Wonderful job! Hope Blumenthal gets what you wish for.
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.
loran and a sextant and loran didn’t work worth cha.
She got my good side!
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.”
Has anyone seen a Photo of Blumenthal in uniform? Just wondering if he is sporting a Vietnam Service or Campaign Ribbon.
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
Can we go after John F. Kerry with this too? IMO Kerry has stolen more valor than this idiot Blumenthal.
