    Yet another Vet against America has turned out to be a fraud — but at least "Rick Duncan" has the excuse of being officially insane:

    The leader of a statewide veterans group who fought for homeless veterans in Colorado Springs was in the Denver County jail on Wednesday, unmasked as a former psychiatric patient who posed as a wounded Marine officer and 9/11 survivor.
    Federal authorities are looking into whether Rick Duncan, whose real name is Richard Glen Strandlof, could have pilfered money he raised in the name of Colorado veterans, said Daniel Warvi of the Colorado Veterans Alliance (CVA), the group that Duncan founded. …
    Strandlof, 31, who invented the name Duncan and claimed he was a former Marine captain and 1997 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, never served in the military and falsely claimed that he was in the Pentagon during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the group said. …
    The group said it found that Strandlof had been a patient in a mental hospital in Washoe County, Nev., at the time of the roadside bombing in Fallujah, Iraq, that he claimed left him severely wounded.
    Strandlof apparently made off with $25,000 he raised during a charity event. Like other fake vets, he's quick to denounce the military in which he never served:

    Strandlof often spoke of his mistreatment by Defense Department officials, saying they dragged their feet on giving him a disability retirement.
    Strandlof is a member of the phony moonbat cults VoteVet and Iraq Veterans Against the War. An all purpose progressive, he takes part in other do-gooder crusades, with typical thuggish righteousness:

    Last year, Strandlof drew headlines in Colorado Springs … by threatening to sue the city unless it suspended city-sponsored cleanups of homeless camps that Strandlof claimed were victimizing veterans.
    He also appeared in TV ads for Democrat congressional candidate Hal Bidlack, who ran as a retired Air Force officer.

    But don't call him a phony soldier. That could get you denounced by Senate Democrats.
