The Awesome POW NETWORK Identifies the PHONY Standing Next To LIAR Blumenthal

A former Marine who was previously identified by the POW NETWORK, a patriotic organization that exposes Posers and liars who steal valor from veterans, has been identified as one of the men standing behind Connecticut State Atty General

Blumenthal’s military buddy on stage is William Joseph Trumpower, aka Elliott Storm, a POW HALL OF SHAME

I copied this from the POW Hall of Shame link above.

WILLIAM JOSEPH TRUMPOWER aka Elliott Storm CLAIMING BRONZE STAR w/VALOR device. Claims 2nd Lt, Claims Wears 3 Purple Hearts, 2 Bronze Stars w/V. The jacket in EARLIER pictures boasted 8 ribbons. This NEW pic has more and includes V device on Bronze Star and 2nd Lt bars. Claims he worked with Ollie North. Reported to have an officer's ID card for 100% disability. Noted as a Disabled American Veteran, commissioned officer 01, Marine Corps.

The New Haven Independent

Blumenthal called supporter Storm who helped him out today.

Elliott Storm is a Blumenthal supporter. The campaign called him and asked him to show up; he called up his friends in the “Vet Pack” to join him, friends who, like him, travel around the country talking about ex-soldiers who contend with post traumatic stress syndrome.

He didn’t apologize. But as he scrambled to resuscitate his battered U.S. Senate campaign Tuesday, Democrat Richard Blumenthal said he “regrets” “misspeaking.”

Then he swung back.

“I will not,” he declared, “allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.”

Blumenthal made the remarks at a 2 p.m. press event at a West Hartford VFW Hall, as he scrambled to contain the damage from a New York Times expose charging that he has falsely claimed to have served in the military in Vietnam, rather than at home in the marine reserves.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Blumenthal lied about his service and then Blumenthal goes before the press and put up some former service men... and now one of them is also found to have lied about there service.

This is a cover your ass response to an obvious LIE. First, he's Harvard educated, Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Cappa and recieved his JD from Yale. also got scholarships to Cambridge. The average student doesn't even see these awards much less ever get them.

Second, a Harvard educated Yale Lawyer Misspeak? Lawyers never Mis-speak, it just don't happen. Lawyers only ask the questions they already know the answers to. They study the language, learn all the nuances of the language, there is no way he misspoke it was by design it was on purpose.

Everything he has done, has been choreographed by design.

In 1969-70 the Marine Corps was cutting its forces back not increasing them. And calling up the Marine Reserve was almost impossible at that time. After your enlistment you went into the Inactive-Reserves for two years, and unless there was a complete breakdown the chances of being called even for Mess Duty were not even a consideration.

As our Drill Instructors use to say, "I'd rather have a sister work in a whorehouse than join the reserves." I guess his sister was busy.

Interesting how posers of this type manage to find each other.

The Attorney General of Connecticut is a low life that should be thrown in jail, or at the very least removed from office.

His offense is just unforgivable. He's not worthy of holding any public office.

Hey, citizens of Connecticut, how about raising the bar a little ?

I do believe the VFW needs to receive some e-mails from us. Well at least me.

This is why I don't associate with Delaware's AmeriCON Legions nor VFWs because many don't even know what a DD FORM 214 is... A few disgrace the many, no doubt! Besides, in our house, every day is Flag Day and Memorial Day!!

Frauds of this type have been around for years. About 14 years ago, the Air Force had one

CMSgt Spenser Dukes claimed to be Battan Death March survivor and former POW during WWII. Chief Dukes was a featured speaker at enlisted Professional Military Education banquets and Enlisted Dining-In’s all over the United States. He spoke at Malamstrom AFB while I was there and his story would literally bring tears to your eyes. Stories had been written about him in the Air Force Sergeants magazine and the First Sergeant of the Year award was about to be named after him. Chief Dukes also had a very powerful supporter, Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force David Campanlae, who ridiculed other Death March survivors who tried to expose Chief Dukes.

Chief Dukes was eventually exposed for the fraud he was. This man had the senior Air Force leadership fooled. Nobody at that level bothered to look into his records; they just took him at his word. If this man, who was wined and dined at Air Force expense all over the United States could fool the Senior Leadership, just think what someone could possibly get out of a civilian or local veterans organization.

Won't allow anyone to impugn his service? He can do that for himself!

Thank you everyone so much. This kind of thing
is so upsetting, and then he gets away with it. Both of these men need to be shamed and punished somehow for what they are doing and have done.
