    The Foghorn (Del Mar College) ^ | March 23, 2010 | Paul Lyman
    Del Mar College proved to be an unlikely starting and ending point for an investigation by a citizen investigator and activist that resulted in the downfall of one of the most influential members of the US Congress. In the early 1980s, Congressman John Murtha and fellow house members were accused of participating in a scam, known as the infamous Abscam affair, a sting operation conducted by the FBI in which two FBI agents posed as advisors to a mysterious sheik named “Abdul” who was supposedly seeking asylum in the US. The agents said the sheik was willing to pay large...

    Iraq vet challenges Murtha in 12th District By Linda M. Ritzer Staff writer lritzer@obserer-reporter.com When Congressman John Murtha called for the immediate pullout of U.S. troops from Iraq in November 2005, it set off a national debate about the war, which continues to stretch the military's capabilities and the country's finances. Murtha's statement also galvanized U.S. Army Lt. Col. William Russell to consider a challenge to the powerful Democratic incumbent. Russell, then a U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who served in Iraq, said his decision was sealed when wounded Iraq veterans came to the Pentagon in March 2007. "That was where...

    Sunday JULY 20, 2008 Murtha outraised in most recent quarter By MICHELLE GANASSI Daily American Staff Writer In April, William Russell's name didn't even appear on the ballot because of a challenge to signatures on his nominating petition. Three months later, Russell has outraised Rep. John Murtha, D-Johnstown, by $511,000 in the most recent fundraising quarter. The quarter ended on June 30. While the veteran congressmen still has more than $1.6 million in the bank compared to $918,000 for the Army lieutenant colonel, the money is a much needed boost for the political newcomer's campaign. “The average American is saying...

    MURTHA WON?  GUESS AGAIN! Dec. 21, 2006... While the world watched (and Murtha partisans gloated), John Murtha won his 17th election back in November.  Many of us were disheartened that we didn’t beat him, but we knew that we had won a moral victory in greatly lowering his usual margin of victory. There was a morale up-tick last month when, on a national news program, Murtha blamed a bunch of “outsiders” for his difficulties in being elected House Majority Leader by his fellow Democrats.  He said they came to his district and “swiftboated” him!  Yessiree—that was our group of...

    PA-12: Murtha Challenger Diana Irey: 'This Battle's Worth the Fight' by Ivy J. Sellers — 10-10-2006 @ 05:23 PM The spunky Diana Irey, who is challenging Rep. John Murtha (D.-Pa.) for the House seat he's occupied for over three decades, spoke with conservative bloggers today during our weekly lunch meeting near Capitol Hill. Irey, a petite brunette who's "pushing five feet," stands out in stark physical contrast to the robust, white-haired Murtha -- but the differences between the two don't end there. A staunch conservative, Irey entered the race in March because she wanted to ensure her three teenagers could...

    Lieutenant Colonel Craig Minnick is a co-organizer of the Boot Murtha campaign to unseat Congressman John Murtha for his egregious statements regarding our soldiers fighting in Iraq. Craig appeared with me this morning on my radio show, Two-Way Radio with Jason High on NewsTalk 1240 WRTA in Altoona, PA. Craig was articulate and passionate as he explained the reasons that Iraq war vets are opposing Congressman Murtha. It's not about Iraq war policy, it's about a career politician making offensive and irresponsible comments regarding our soldiers. Craig, for the first time, called on Congressman Murtha to debate him publicly regarding...

    WASHINGTON – For more than a decade, Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania has operated a political trading post in a back corner of the House of Representatives. A gang of about two dozen Democrats mill around his seat. A procession of others walk back to request pet spending projects, known as earmarks. And Republicans come by, asking him to enlist some of those Democrats to join them on close votes. “Whether they get what they want in the bill or they get the votes they are looking for, nobody ever leaves completely disappointed,” said Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., who often...

CBS News correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi reports from deep in the heart of Pennsylvania steel country that Rep. Murtha is engaged in a new battle – this one in his own backyard.

If I had to guess, I would say that there were around 1,000 people there, although pictures may not reflect this because it was held at the War Memorial, which is a pretty large venue (it's where President Bush came when he visited Johnstown during the 2004 campaign, if that tells you anything).First, let me say that I did not hear one person question Murtha's prior military service. In fact,...

    Stephanopoulos to Murtha:  "Democrats are worried about your leadership" Congressman John Murtha was questioned this morning by Sunday morning talk show host George Stephanopoulos regarding his announcement Friday that he is again campaigning for House Majority Leader. Stephanopoulos said Democrats are worried about his leadership. The reason? Murtha's questionable ethics. Stephanopoulos cited ABSCAM and tens of millions of Defense contract dollars going to the KSI lobbying firm of Murtha's brother as reason for Democrats' concern. Murtha responded that he was 'cleared of all charges" in the ABSCAM case; and his brother's millions were acquired ethically. "Everything we do in...

One, about John Kerry’s anti-war activities and the North Vietnamese, struck me because of how it applies today to opportunists like Jack Murtha, leftover Marxists, airhead celebrities, America haters, and virtually the entire Democratic congressional and party leadership. Here’s what Erika Holzer and I wrote two years ago:  "Fox News Channel has just reported that “in his 1985 memoir about the [Vietnam]war, communist Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap wrote that if it weren’t for organizations like Kerry’s Vietnam Veterans Against the...

John Murtha is ready to make war profiteering charges against Robert Irey – husband of Murtha's 2006 opponent, Diana Irey.

    Time-laifacts vs Time magazine fiction "Sweetness & Light, which has been all over the Haditha story, notes that Time Magazine has been discreetly backing off its Haditha coverage with a series of corrections. Time has an enormous amount of prestige invested in its Haditha "scoop." It turns out, though, that the magazine apparently misrepresented the source of the videotape that got the whole story rolling. And it has also developed that a photograph that Time described as "one of the most damning pieces of evidence investigators have in their possession" is only the subject of rumor, and may not...

    The Way It Isa letter from the President of Vets for the Truth Like so many veterans who have served their country honorably, I find it hard to accept the words and actions of many of my countrymen — politicians, professors, protestors from the 1960s — who miss no opportunity to condemn their country and those who fight to defend it. I am angry at them all, those scum of the earth who abuse the freedom that our veterans have bought at the price of their own lives and blood.  I especially despise the George Soros/Michael Moore/Howard Dean crowd...

    Murtha loyalist says "no more"      Congressman John (Jack) Murtha's radical about-face, left-wing march has left many of his constituents back home puzzled – and angry. Murtha's district is strongly pro-military. Below is a comment from one of Murtha's constituents posted on the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat's online Discussion board:      "I've long been a supporter of his, and if not for his vicious verbal attacks on our military heroes, I may still be among his most loyal supporters.      Play petty politics if you want, Jack - and criticize every Republican you can find any nit-picky details on to further...

    Murtha's Code Pink star grows brighter      You won't see these photos of Congressman John Murtha in the state or local Pennsylvania newspapers. And you sure won't see these photos of Murtha on his congressional website. Sadly, these photos are amongst the avalanche of disturbing Murtha activities that are never reported to PA district 12 constituents.      Stunned PA district 12 constituents are just now seeing for themselves how profoundly Murtha has abandoned their values. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words:        The photos on the left show a proud John Murtha accepting awards...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Bill Pascoe Wednesday, August 30, 2006 (724) 258-2300 In Case You Missed It: The American Spectator: The Full Murtha The Full Murtha Washington is a forgiving town, at least to Democrats. Generally, scandal-tainted Republicans are given little quarter. John McCain is the most outstanding exception, and campaign finance reform is his ongoing penance. In the absence of such surrender to the Democratic agenda or a retreat from Washington altogether, the disgraced politician does the smart thing: lies low. Congressman John P. "Jack" Murtha (D-PA) did precisely that for almost 25 years after his entanglement in "Abscam,"...
