Blumenthal returns to Vietnam
Classic. When confronted with lying about serving in Vietnam, Connecticut AG Richard Blumenthal called Elliott Storm to rally a few Vietnam veterans to the senate candidate’s defense.
Elliott Storm is a Blumenthal supporter. The campaign called him and asked him to show up; he called up his friends in the “Vet Pack” to join him, friends who, like him, travel around the country talking about ex-soldiers who contend with post traumatic stress syndrome.
Storm, who lives in Milford, wrote a book on the subject, called These Scars Are Sacred.
Okey-dokey. But unfortunately for Blumenthal, “Elliott Storm” is a fraud, too. Oops.
Meanwhile, some piling on:
William Saletan suggests holding Blumenthal to the Blumenthal standard.
Jim Geraghty says he believes Richard Blumenthal. Really.
Blogger Doug Powers says wait a second, there’s some photographic evidence we might want to see.
