Kirk still shucking and jiving about reg violations

A couple people have written me about how weird Mark Kirk is now being in regard to his military record. From now on, he says, he won't release any more of his record nor will he even really talk about his service and the fitness reports he's already released.

I'm not surprised. Kirk has studiously avoided admitting he violated regulations against politicking on active duty, instead choosing to admit only that he was counseled for those violations. It's like admitting you were arrested for a crime while not admitting to the crime itself.

As I've said before, if Kirk would release his Annual Retirement Points Record, it would prove that he violated regulations, so he's chosen to just pretend he's answered everyone's questions and refuse to release more documents. Odd that he would make that decision just as I pointed out to people--including Chicago-based reporters--that he's holding back a document which could set the record straight.

It's a weasel move.

The Navy's core values are honor, courage and commitment. It's sad to see a Naval officer who seems to only understand commitment and, even then, it seems he's only committed to his own political advancement.

The press says he's released all his fitness reports, but haven't posted what they were give to my knowledge. I've only seen the 6 pages from 1998 - 2000 linked from his own website. Have you seen all the fitness reports and are you skeptical about them anyway. Carl says fitness reports are usually inflated to make the person look good.
