Democrat Richard Blumenthal, running for Connecticut's US Senate seat, baldly asserted he had served in Viet Nam. It never happened. Blumenthal fessed up. Rather than being hooted out of the election, people at the news conference applauded Blumenthal for his lie.

Currently serving as Connecticut Attorney General, Blumenthal should have lost his current job for such stupidity and been totally disqualified from the Senate.
Time will tell.
