John Murtha is a scumbag, but we still had a measure of respect for him, until now. Still pissed about the 2008 electoral challenge from an Iraqi war veteran, Lt. Colonel Bill Russell, Murtha unleashed his attack dog, chief of staff, John Hugya, to make Russell pay, by any means necessary.
Eager to do the bidding of John "Scumbag" Murtha, Hugya accepted the challenge and came up with a scheme that made his rat bastard boss’s day. They decided to use Russell’s military service against him, by threatening to call him back to active duty, then have him court martialed for campaigning while in the military. It is, Murtha and his henchman know, a violation of the military code to campaign while on active duty.
The accusation seemed to have legs, since, from April to July (2008), Lt. Colonel Russell was on active duty. Guilty? Nope, because Bill Russell suspended his campaign during that period, to avoid violating the military code. Did that seal the deal with Murtha and his attack dog? Hardly. Full of themselves, and ‘it’, after coasting to a 16-point victory last November, Murtha’s bully boy confronted Bill Russell in March, 2009, at which point he aired out his threat.‘...Hugya broached the topic of Russell's active-duty stint at an NRA dinner in March. Russell, who described the encounter as hostile, said he was working the tables at the event when Hugya threatened him, saying: "What are you gonna do when we have the new secretary of the Army seated and have your ass recalled to active duty for that s--- you pulled last summer?"...’For not being man enough to fight his own battles...for deploying his lap dog to do his dirty work....for impugning the service of one of our warriors...for being a loathsome, belly-crawling, jello spined son of a bitch who is too gutless to face his political opponents like a MAN, John Murtha is the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girlieman of the Week.
‘...While Hugya did not explicitly threaten to bring Russell up on charges during the March conversation, he apparently did in a conversation in January with Ret. Col. Gregory Ritch, who served as Russell's commanding officer. Ritch said he was talking on the phone with Hugya about an unrelated topic when Murtha's chief of staff suddenly switched topics to Russell, whom he referred to as the "carpetbagger."
According to Ritch, Hugya said: "He's gonna get a big surprise here shortly when the new secretary of Army calls his ass back for active duty."...’ (Fox News)
