So there’s this guy in Wakulla County, Florida running for commissioner named Steven “Steve” Cushman and this is what he’s saying about his Air Force career;
So, Scotty gets his records and it turns out that he did some time in the Air Force Reserves and got out as an E-3 after a year or so. I’m pretty sure that if he had gone to ROTC, he would have been a commissioned officer and he might have been a pilot, but that’s not the case here.
If he’d spent any time on active duty, there’d be a FOIA from the NPRC, instead the NPRC referred the request to the Reserves. So he probably didn’t even go to basic training.
Yeah, after many of the guys who we’ve seen on these pages, this seems rather pedestrian, but, obviously he was a dirtbag who couldn’t make it in the Reserves. Now he’s trading on the reputation of people better than him in order to win an election. If he’s as qualified as he seems to be, he didn’t need to even mention his stunted Air Force Reserve career. Yet there it is and he’s making excuses about “voluntary disenrollment offered during the Clinton Administration”. He was a reservist for a year. And Clinton wasn’t President in August 1990 when he left the service according to the Air Reserve Personnel Center.
So he’s trading on the reputations of real veterans to deceive the voters. I wonder what else he’s lying about.
