Uncovered Dem Scandal Grows, Victims List Continues To Increase
The Air Force has admitted that seven Republican congressional candidates have had their military records improperly accessed in a move that many have called politically motivated.
In a letter to House Armed Services Committee Chair Mike Rogers, R–Ala., and Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R–Ky., the Air Force admitted that the records of J.R. Majewski and Robert “Eli“ Bremer, in addition to the five previously known to have been affected, had been accessed without proper authorization.
The records were accessed by the Democratic Party–aligned research firm Due Diligence Group, who had received more than $110,000 from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) from January 2021 to December 2022. The Air Force stated that there was “no evidence of political motivation or malicious intent on the part of any employee.”
The release of the records came to light after the military record of Republican Indiana House candidate Jennifer–Ruth Green was released and reported on by Politico in October 2022. The information included details of a sexual assault. This led Rogers and Comer to send a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin demanding information, including a list of the improperly released records of congressional candidates over the past two years and a list of punitive actions taken against those responsible for the leak.
The letter from the Air Force confirmed that the records of seven Republican congressional candidates had been illegally accessed and that the Air Force had initiated an audit of all third–party requests received from early 2021 to early 2023.
This breach of trust is a troubling reminder of the lengths the Democratic Party is willing to go to in order to gain an advantage in the 2022 election. Republicans should be rightly outraged at this violation of privacy and the potential for political exploitation of personal information. The Secretary of Defense should take action to ensure that all those responsible for this breach are held accountable.
The Air Force notified lawmakers that it improperly released military records of 7 GOP candidates to a Dem-aligned research firm in 2022.
Two of them hadn't been ID'd until now:
👉 House candidate J.R. Majewski
👉 Senate candidate Robert “Eli” Bremer https://t.co/vQJk6eHpg6
