Did Congressman Walz's exaggerated service record cause the evacuation of a Capitol office building today? From a story in the Strib this evening-
A package addressed to Congressman Tim Walz’s office forced the evacuation of a Capitol office building Wednesday afternoon after police determined it to be suspicious. The package contained a metal box and an unidentified medal, said FBI Washington Field Office spokeswoman Katherine Schweit.
A commenter at the Strib wonders if this was a shot at the Congressman for his misleading website and public claim of being an Afghanistan Vet-
I would wager this was a shot at Walz who has continuously said he is a Afghanistan War vet when he is not. A solid newspaper that would report the facts would look into this fraud and expose him for it. Must be too busy writing large stories on former (8yrs ago) republican consultants that no one has ever heard of, trying to get a hand job at a massage parlor. Go out of business already, your reporting ethics have been gone for years.posted by rodshober on Jul 30, 09 at 5:05 pm
I don't think it's accurate to say that "has continuously said he is a Afghanistan War vet", rather he has publicly said it once (and probably desperately wants to forget it) and is misleading people with his website biography. But the point is interesting. I wonder if we will ever learn what medal was in the package?
