House Passes New Version
By Harold Hutchison
The House of Representatives passed a new version of the Stolen Valor Act, responding to the Supreme Court’s 2012 decision striking it down, by a vote of 390-3.
According to a report by Military.com, the new law now limits bans against false claims of receiving awards to those people who with falsely claim to have been awarded a medal with “intent to obtain money, property, or other tangible benefit.”
The three “nays” on this legislation came from Representatives Paul Broun (R-GA), Justin Amash (R-MI), and Thomas Massie (R-KY). Call them at (202)224-3121 to express your thoughts on their refusal to confront the phonies who steal the valor of our troops!
