Bob Dole joins Swift Veterans for (Mis)Truth
Cranky Bob Dole needs to hire a fact-checker.
Speaking to Wolf Blitzer on CNN, Dole said, "John Kerry's a hero. But what I will always quarrel about are the Purple Hearts. I mean, the first one, whether he ought to have a Purple Heart - he got two in one day, I think. And he was out of there in less than four months, because three Purple Hearts and you're out."
One problem with Dole's assertions? Kerry did not receive any Purple Hearts on the same day. He received them for events on Dec. 2, 1968, Feb. 20, 1969, and March 13, 1969.
