Well, well, it seems that smell has been traced to a rat. I didn’t read the original Washington Post article, but Misleader.org reports
“Rear Admiral William L. Schachte Jr., the man who claims Kerry was not under fire when he received his first Purple Heart, is a top lobbyist for a defense contractor that recently won a $40 million grant from the Bush administration. According to a March 18 legal filing by Schachte’s firm, Blank Rome, Schachte was one of the lobbyists working for FastShip’s effort to secure federal contracts.2 On Feb. 2, FastShip announced the Bush administration had awarded it $40 million.”
It’s just great that a man of integrity is in the White House.
