Sen. Mark Kirk’s Military Service Once Again Called Into Question

You might remember the controversy over Mark Kirk’s military service when he first ran for the U.S. Senate six years ago… now, it may be starting up again.

CNN reports that Kirk’s campaign website described the GOP Senator as a “veteran of the Iraq War.” While Kirk was in the Naval Reserves during that time, he was stationed in the U.S. and did not serve in Iraq.

The Kirk campaign says it was language written by a third-party vendor that had not been approved by the campaign, and was accidentally posted to a public page on the website.
