Liar, liar, leather chaps on fire!

Daily Kos :: Quantico Search Reveals NO Guckert USMC Records

James Dale Guckert, aka "Jeff Gannon," never served in the United States Marine Corps, according to the Personnel Management Support Branch located at Marine Corps Base Quantico (MCBQ).

ePluribus Media volunteer researcher RenaRF visited the Virginia base March 30, 2005, and requested a hand search of all records, as recommended by Marine Corps lead archive technician Armando Nunez after he failed to find files on Guckert in response to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted last month and documented in a previous diary.
...
The searches at Quantico were conducted by Social Security number, as well as by birth date and last name, with no hits on any combination of the criteria in either the computerized or microfiche records.

At the completion of the search, Smith stated that Guckert had never served in the United States Marine Corps.


As reported at dKos a month ago, and duly noted here, JimmyJeff's questionable story is being, um, questioned.

But let's put things in perspective. It isn't like he lied about which side of an invisibile dotted line in the river between Viet Nam and Cambodia he was piloting a swift boat on, right? And he isn't lying about sex.... oh. Never mind.

Guckert/Gannon wasn't a marine and he plagiarizes. We know from his internet advertising his charge for his prostitution services. If we can find who, in the White House, used/paid him, we'll know how he got into the press room. It was a 'this for that' situation.
