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.

Comes from Jimmy Fallon: Have you heard about this guy, Richard Blumenthal, a Democratic candidate for Senate in Connecticut? It turns out he actually lied about serving in Vietnam. Not good.
