Jean Schmidt Caught Lying About Marine Quote In Murtha Attack.
Jean Schmidt - Latest GOP Lying Sack of Shit
Things just keep turning to shit for the GOP. Right wing harridan Jean Schmidt has been caught engaging in the number one GOP pasttime - lying her gnarled ass off in her attack against John Murtha on the floor of the House of Representatives last week. Here's the Think Progress story by way of Atrios:
During Rep. Jean Schmidt’s (R-OH) shameful attack on Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA) on the House Floor she said she was communicating a message from Marine Colonel Danny Bubp: A few minutes ago I received a call from Colonel Danny Bubp, Ohio Representative from the 88th district in the House of Representatives. He asked me to send Congress a message: Stay the course. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message, that cowards cut and run, Marines never do. Danny and the rest of America and the world want the assurance from this body – that we will see this through.
Bubp denies he said that: Danny Bubp, a freshman state representative who is a colonel in the Marine Corps Reserve, told The Enquirer that he never mentioned Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., by name when talking with Schmidt…”There was no discussion of him personally being a coward or about any person being a coward,” Bubp said.
Schmidt needs to come clean.

As if that would ever happen. Being a member of the GOP means never having to admit you are a lying scumbag. It's just too bad the mainstream "liberal" media won't touch this story. Christ, those assholes are still claiming Murtha wants an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq. Is their nothing about which these people will not lie to advance their twisted view of the world?
