Ohio House Candidate Lies About Military Service
Used to be a disqualifier when the GOP pretended to be the party of the military, now it's a feature apparently to gain the endorsement of dear leader.

Quote:WASHINGTON (AP) — Campaigning for a northwestern Ohio congressional seat, Republican J.R. Majewski presents himself as an Air Force combat veteran who deployed to Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, once describing “tough” conditions including a lack of running water that forced him to go more than 40 days without a shower.

Military documents obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request tell a different story.

They indicate Majewski never deployed to Afghanistan but instead completed a six-month stint helping to load planes at an air base in Qatar, a longtime U.S. ally that is a safe distance from the fighting.

Majewski’s account of his time in the military is just one aspect of his biography that is suspect. His post-military career has been defined by exaggerations, conspiracy theories, talk of violent action against the U.S. government and occasional financial duress.

Still, thanks to an unflinching allegiance to former President donald trump — Majewski once painted a massive trump mural on his lawn — he also stands a chance of defeating longtime Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur in a district recently redrawn to favor Republicans.

RE: Ohio House Candidate Lies About Military Service
If only the AP would investigate BOTH PARTIES equally... we would have a much better government IMHO. Legacy media is the biggest root of all evil in the U.S. today for the mess we have. You expect politicians to lie, steal, cheat and misrepresent themselves and their positions. It's what they do in order to get an edge for themselves and their party. It's up to our "Fourth Branch of Government" to keep BOTH SIDES honest. In case you were confused, the guy is a douche bag for misrepresenting himself.

Perhaps nothing about Trump's political successes has ever surprised me more than the fact that his candidacy for the GOP nomination was not swiftly ended by his comments about Senator McCain. Whether you liked his politics or not, McCain was a bona fide war hero. Shows just how fast and hard the GOP has fallen from the party of Reagan over the past 25 years. The GOP that was enraged by Clinton's avoidance of service in the 1990s would never have nominated anyone who made similar comments about a war hero like Bob Dole, for instance.

If NW Ohio chooses JR Majewski over Rep. Marcy Kaptur then the Buckeye State is truly lost to MAGA. I think she'll be fine though, she's the longest currently serving woman in Congress and has never received less than 55% of the vote (that was back in 1984).

RE: Ohio House Candidate Lies About Military Service
If you prefer to vote for a politician who doesn't lie, you have very few choices.

HOWEVER, a candidate who thinks he can tell a whopper like this and get away with it says to me that this is one fool with really poor decision making skills. We've already got enough of those in D.C.

Hopefully, this guy just destroyed his own political career. Should have taken lessons from democrats. 03-nutkick

I'd like to say that this is just an attack article from the AP but if they looked into his military records, that doesn't hold water. It would really be something to see the AP investigate dem candidates as well. A guy can dream, right?

How about calling half of the country's law abiding citizens fascists and a threat to democracy?

Doesn't shock you at all?

You act like everybody in the GOP, both politicians and voters loved McCain. Not so fast. McCain was no war hero, except to those who don't pay attention to those who served with him. The fact that he got shot down is not something that makes one a hero. His politics were not something that GOP voters were fond of. But go ahead and label him a hero. He really was loathed by many even in his own party.

Thanks. I assumed you both were talking about Swalwell. 03-wink

So to answer the other question, this is actually worse. There's nothing I see to indicate that Feinstein knew the guy was a spy or that she lied about it.

Lying about military service is one of the worst things one can do, next to lying about having cancer...or at least it used to be.

You're entitled to believe what you want. But ignorance is no excuse for being a conduit to our enemies.

RE: Ohio House Candidate Lies About Military Service
Whether John McCain was a war hero in the conventional sense can be debated.

But — and correct me if I'm wrong — McCain was tortured some during 5.5 years as a prisoner of war. Yet he still declined to accept the offer to be released from his captors, in part, out of respect for his fellow American soldiers. I will always honor the memory of John McCain for that alone.

We've got folks living in the greatest nation ever — on both the political left and right — who would never even volunteer to serve in the military (my soft self included), much less decline an invite to be released from hellish prisoner-of-war captivity.

Props to those who serve(d) — and particularly those who gave all.

I'm right there with you Bill, and I think that those of us who did not serve like you, me and all of our Presidents since HW Bush owe those who did a great measure of respect. Thanks to their sacrifices we have the opportunity to achieve a comfortable life in this country, and the freedom to bicker about sports and politics on boards like this!

If this story is true, then the guy is a bum and should be thrown out on his ear.

And there's the difference. Most Repubs will call this guy out and he will lose support.

When a Dem does this (and worse), you simply deflect and defend.

One side is intellectually honest and one is not.
