Greg Hinz gets it
The story is a department memo, first revealed by the blog Nitpicker, that Mr. Kirk engaged in "partisan political activities while on his last two tours of duty." It's not clear whether it involved tweeting or some other activity, but Mr. Kirk's campaign does not deny the authenticity of the memo.As I said
But, even if the Dems are wrong on the facts, someone in the Pentagon — reportedly a deputy undersecretary of defense — felt he did break the rules. And that is a problem.
, Kirk can make all the gratuitous accusations of conspiracy he wants to make, but it doesn't change the fact the document is real and someone in the DoD thought he acted wrongly--a career Defense employee appointed
to Under Secretary by the Bush administration, no less.
