Remember the idiots at VFW supporting politicians who crap on the troops?

Like Ma'am Boxer?
It is now evident to most of the VFW leadership, both National and especially the
departments, that the VFW has been subjected to extreme negative publicity throughout
the nation, and the recent endorsement decisions have, in fact, harmed the VFW’ s
reputation and future ability to fulfill our mission.

I cannot let this erosion of public support for our great organization continue. The
apparent lack of the committee to address these concerns will lead to a proposal by me,
as Commander-in-Chief, to amend the by-laws at the 112th National Convention for
the purpose of dissolving the PAC. Meanwhile, under the authority granted to me as
Commander-in-Chief in section 619 of the VFW National By-Laws and under section
620 of the Manual of Procedure, I am withdrawing all PAC appointments effective
October 15, 2010.

Accordingly, I’ m asking the council for a vote of “ no confidence” in the VFW PAC as
indicated on the enclosed ballot
A good start. Now the question is "How and why the hell did you people sit around while the PAC did this and say NOTHING until people screamed and took money away from you?

Probably they didn't even notice what VFW PAC was doing until people screamed about it.

VFW and VFW PAC don't look to be closely coupled
Which, I believe, is how things like that are supposed to be done, in fact - that's the reason there are PACs are separate entities in the first place.

Most likely VFW didn't think they had to monitor the PAC that closely to keep them from being idiots.
