But he isn't, he served stateside in the Naval Reserves

Mark Kirk campaign site falsely calls senator 'veteran' of Iraq war - CNNPolitics.com


The Republican, now battling for a second term in a tight race in Illinois, stayed in the United States during the Iraq War when he served in the Navy Reserves. But on a public webpage on his official campaign website touting his record on veterans' issues, Kirk was listed as a "veteran of the Iraq war."

While Kirk campaign officials said it was a staff error, the issue resembles the controversy that nearly caused his 2010 Senate campaign to implode. Moreover, Kirk is now running for reelection against Democratic Rep. Tammy Duckworth, a military veteran who lost both of her legs during combat in Iraq.

Kirk acknowledged it was an error made by one of his staff. It has been corrected. Now about that landing under enemy fire. That little girl sure looked menacing.

Don't tell me to move on because the one you support lies too. I am sorry that I won't lie down for you like you do for Hillary.
