Mike McCalister's Latest Military FUBAR
It is amazing to watch Mike McCalister implode. The Republican Senate candidate committed a serious no no by wearing Army ceremonial uniform to a political fundraiser. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that this is against Army policy.
"The retiree is not authorized to wear his uniform to political events," said U.S. Army spokesman Troy Rolan. He cited regulations that say current and former service members should only wear the
uniform to ceremonial events, such as Memorial Day, and should not wear the outfit to political functions.
McCalister, a retired Army Reserves Colonel, was forced to pull the nonexistent the job title of "special operations colonel" off his campaign web site. McCalister also said he testified to Congress as an active colonel. McCalister later claimed he never made that statement in a hysterical camcorder chase involving Marc Caputo, Sarah Rumpf, and Javier Manjarres.
Candidates are done when they become a punchline. The Republican nomination is between Adam Hasner and George Lemieux. MCalister's fundraising will soon dry up.
