    Sadly but predictably this sort of fraud is all too common,and takes place in every area of our political debate. It also happens at "Tea Party" events and at Town Hall meetings.

    I did not intend to imply veteran identity fraud at town hall meetings, but other types of identy fraud, like pretending to be bona-fide protesters with reversed role identy for instance. And veteran identity fraud has happened before. This is just another more recent case of that.

    And, LS, thank you for allowing me the chance to correct and clarify.

    Well the majority of the left is anti war and has used these fake veterans as a means to attack the Iraq war.

    I realize this poser has fooled even some of the left leaning politicans along with a good deal of those on the left. So to answer your question. Yes and no.

    No offense to the OP, but this is kind of silly. If the guy was a mental patient, then how can we really hold him accountable for posing as a wounded war veteran if it's established that this may have been the result of some mental condition? This means that he didn't have the same type of inhibitors that would prevent a mentally stable person from doing the same thing. Or it could be that this was some sort of desperate grab for attention that a more sane person wouldn't resort to.

    Then there's the whole liberal vs. conservative nonsense. I would argue that, if anything, there's more of a tendency of posers leaning towards the right than the left because military service means more to the right than it does to the left when it comes to political gamemanship.

    Or, as a good friend of mine once put it: "2,000 qualified SEALs in the Navy, you come across about 5,000 of them online."

    Do you not think it a good practice to know who you are using as a spokesman at rallys and in tv ads?

    No matter what he committed a Federal crime. And to start this group and fool as many people as he did he has to be crazy but the funny thing is that so many were fooled and believed this man. Then you have to wonder why we make fun of the liberals for supporting Obama. The liberals are to easy to be fooled.
