I know someone who has NEVER been in any branch of our military. Yet he advertises military service on his resume and a web page for work! This makes me so angry because there are so many wonderful men and women who have and are serving our country.
Is this even legal? Is there someone I can call to report this?
The Stolen Valor Act was declared unconstitutional.
In a 2-to-1 ruling, the appellate court said that if the law were held constitutional, many everyday lies could become criminal acts. “There would be no constitutional bar to criminalizing lying about one’s height, weight, age, or financial status on Match.com or Facebook, or falsely representing to one’s mother that one does not smoke, drink alcoholic beverages, is a virgin, or has not exceeded the speed limit while driving on the freeway,” Judge Milan D. Smith, Jr., wrote for the majority. “The sad fact is, most people lie about some aspects of their lives from time to time.”
