Sen. Candidate Richard Blumenthal: I Didn’t Lie, I Misspoke About Distorted Statements of Military Role in Vietnam

Democratic Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal conceded he had ‘misspoken’ in claiming repeatedly that he served in Vietnam, dismissing the furor as a matter of ‘a few misplaced words.’

If this proves to be true, this will be negative factor in the race and I think it will hurt his chances.
