Blumenthal Flanked by Another Phony During Non-Apology?

Head on over to Doug Ross’s site and read about one of Richard Blumenthal’s supporters at yesterday’s non-apology.

Amazingly enough, it appears that Blumenthal addressed his “few misplaced words” about claiming to have served in Vietnam while flanked by veterans who supposedly still support him — and one of those men was William Joseph Trumpower (AKA Eliot Storm), who is listed on the POW Network’s Phony Vet Database.

Storm was even interviewed at the non-apology:

Elliott Storm is a Blumenthal supporter. The campaign called him and asked him to show up; he called up his friends in the “Vet Pack” to join him, friends who, like him, travel around the country talking about ex-soldiers who contend with post traumatic stress syndrome.

Storm, who lives in Milford, wrote a book on the subject, called These Scars Are Sacred.

“If a man wore a uniform during those turbulent times, they were rejected and called ‘babykiller,’” Storm said at Tuesday’s event “People are still attacking veterans who served in Vietnam.” The Times story about Blumenthal’s service is a yet another example of that, he claimed.

He was asked to show up? Wow, that’s like Mark Souder calling a press conference to discuss getting caught cheating on his wife and asking Bill Clinton to stand behind him in full support to lend the moment some sincere credibility.

Ah yes, full integrity restored to the Blumenthal campaign!

Update: Somebody from the Blumenthal campaign sent me these two photographs that are said to provide solid evidence that Blumenthal did indeed serve in Vietnam, so if they’re authentic, I owe him a full apology:
