Eh, Collateral Damage

As long as we get Hanoi Dick!!!1!

Asks Aaron Blake, who is apparently "Dave Weigel" for today:

So Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) introduces an amendment making it a crime to lie about your military service, and just days later, a Republican senate candidate is caught misrepresenting his service.

The question is: Does the bill apply to Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) in the same way it applied to the original target -- Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D)? Would Kirk have committed a crime?

Anybody? Anybody?

The answer, according to Hatch’s office, is no.

Whoops, sorry. Should have warned you to sit down first.
