Connecticut Attorney General Blumenthal has stated several times in the past that he served in Vietnam.
He did not.
He obtained draft deferments for years before landing a cushy spot in the Marine Reserve, where he would have a virtual guarantee of not facing active duty.
The article covers a lot of ground concerning his misleading and lying to his constituents but doesn't mention his party until the 3rd paragraph.
Surprise! He's a Democrat!
No real shock, since he was planning to replace Chris (mortgage debacle) Dodd.
