The Clackamas County Prosecutor who appeared in an ad against John Kerry has been suspended from his job, but not for speaking out. Al French has been the target of local protests after his appearance in a political ad questioning the the Democratic candidate’s war record.
On Thursday he was placed on leave by the Clackamas County District Attorney’s office. It wasn’t for his statements against Kerry, but for lying about an extra-marital affair. Reports say French misled his former boss ten years ago to avoid getting fired.
Oliver determines that lying about an extra-marital affair shows a lack of integrity, and opines:
People are trusting this guy and his pals more than the US Navy? For shame.
They don’t just think Bush is stupid. They think we are all stupid.
A.) No one is trusting the Swift Vets over the “Navy.” They are questioning the Navy Records- records which, even today, Kerry refuses to release.
B.) Since when is infidelity a character flaw? Who was that guy- the leader of the Democrats, who screwed a trail from Little Rock to DC to Chappaqua? Oh yeah- it was the CLENIS, aka, the greatest man to ever live.
