Steve Gardner, the ONE crew member that actually served on the same boat with Kerry who is a member of the Smear Boat Vets for Lies appeared on "Hannity & Colmes" last night. He claimed that he was fired from his job because he spoke out against John Kerry. It came out in the course of his interview that two other people had been laid off on the same day and that he had just finished a project for the company that he worked for (Hmm...a high tech company laying off folks after a big project? Unheard of!).
While on the program, Colmes grew some cojones and asked Gardner outright if he was claiming that the other nine crew members were liars and he got Gardner to say, "Yes, all the other people on the boat are lying." Sheesh!
- Gardner whining that he's been, "ridiculed, smeared and called a liar." Gee Steve, how does it feel to be on the receiving end? Not too good, huh?
- Gardner also claimed that he was threatened by fellow vet John Hurley (who denies the allegations). He said Hurley told him, "If you're not with us; you're against us." Hmm...that has a familiar ring to it...
SIDE NOTE: Gardner was a call-in guest on Pittsburgh's own "Honsberger Live" show this morning. I was able to call in and challenge him on some of the above stuff before I was cut off.
