Classy: Democrats Accuse Iraq War Veteran/Congressional Candidate of Cowardice
Daniel Doherty | May 15, 2014
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is on a roll lately. First they endorsed a candidate in Florida’s 13th Congressional District who couldn’t lawfully run as a Democrat. (Who, by the way, later dropped out of the race when it was discovered there were gaping holes in his resume). Now they’re suggesting Republican congressional candidate Lee Zeldin -- an Iraq War veteran and New York State Senator -- is a “coward.”
Why, you ask? Because he hasn’t come out in favor -- or against -- the Paul Ryan budget plan yet. “Zeldin is either woefully uninformed, willfully ignorant or a coward,” the committee wrote on its website.
Nevertheless, they kicked their criticism up a notch yesterday when they tweeted out this:
Sent @leezeldin the same badge of courage today that the Wizard of Oz gave the Cowardly Lion http://t.co/rjNHDnidPc

The National Republican Congressional Committee wants an apology. We'll see if they get one.
