Ohio Republican congressional candidate J.R. Majewski is reportedly a liar in one of the worst ways possible.
It is a rather unique case of stolen valor.
Majewski did serve, just not in the fashion he is pretending.
This is arguably one of the stupidest and most disgusting stories I have read today.
Majewski is an Air Force veteran, but he never saw any time in Afghanistan as he claimed.
He claims he deployed to Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks and lived under horrific conditions.
According to Majewski, he spent 40 days without running water and could not shower.
AP investigated his service records, which told quite a different story.
The House hopeful was actually in Japan and did six months in Qatar loading planes.
He also claimed he earned campaign medals for fighting in Afghanistan and a Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, but the AP report found no records of that either.
Now people are starting to doubt his professional record which includes executive positions at FirstEnergy and Holtec International.
Majewski was already under the microscope as a diehard Trump supporter, a MAGA candidate, and having been at the Capitol during the riot on January 6.
He had a shot to take out an incumbent Democrat, but I don’t see anyone voting for him after these fraudulent claims.
