Looks like Jack Murthafucker is getting closer to being buried in a flapping heap of our enraged feathery friends (thanks to Sir Christopher):

A federal judge has ordered Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.) to testify in a defamation case related to the deaths of Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha in 2005, according to the Associated Press.

Murtha, a former Marine. accused Marines of “cold-blooded murder and war crimes” during the Haditha incident. Frank Wuterich, a Marine sergeant involved in the incident, has sued Murtha for libel and invasion of privacy over his comments.

According to AP, U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer wants Murtha to explain why he made this statement and any documents he has related to the incident.

Gee, isn’t that fun, you buddy-fucking, grand-standing donkey’s arse? Looks like some judges still take the law seriously and won’t automatically give you DC dorkwads a pass just because you’re, well, DC dorkwads.

From the AP: ‘You’re writing a very wide road for members of Congress to go to their home districts and say anything they choose about private persons and be able to do so without any liability. Are you sure you want to do that?” Collyer said, adding later, ”How far can a congressman go and still be protected?”

Hopefully not as far as acting as judge, jury and executioner, libeling U.S. Marines before they’ve had the benefit of a trial, much less an actual investigation. Either way, it’ll be interesting listening to the unindicted ABSCAM co-conspirator (unindicted only because he didn’t want to take the bribe right away, mind you) trying to defend himself in court.

Of course, the mouthbreathing knuckledragger at Politico doesn’t agree with the ruling. To him, Congresscritters are a breed apart, above the law of the land and should most certainly be allowed to libel and slander to their widdle hearts’ content. After all, how can they possibly do their job if they’re not allowed to walk around calling anybody they want to rapists, murderers, cold-blooded killers or child molesters?

Frankly, I don’t understand this ruling at all, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is appealed by the Justice Dept. and/or House general counsel’s office on behalf of Murtha. Murtha, who can say some inappropriate things once in a while, was clearly acting in his capacity as a lawmaker when he made the comments and is thus protected by the Speech or Debate Clause from any type of prosecution for official acts.

It used to be that the one of the principles of a civilized nation was that there was one law for all people, but apparently the ignorant clown writing that article doesn’t agree. To him, some animals really are more equal than others and should be treated as such. Immune to prosecution no matter what they do, presumably because they’re so much better than we are, or because they can’t do their jobs if they have to be tied down by the same laws that the rest of us plebes have to follow.

Unless, of course, Mr. Bresnahan thinks that the law as a whole is unfair, in which case I suppose it would be alright for me to accuse him of being a cold-blooded killer, a child molester, a rapist, a bank robber or whatever else I could think of.

Murtha has a right to say what he did under the Speech or Debate Clause, even if he was wrong about what happened. When we start restricting what members and senators can say in the performance of their jobs, then we are really in trouble as a country.

Oh we are, are we? I suppose it would be The End Of The Republic As We Know It™ if a precedent against 535 anointed philosopher kings was established, barring them from committing libel and/or slander without legal consequences?

No, you drooling serf, we would be in trouble if we created a political upper class unbound by the laws that they themselves pass to control the rest of us. If I wanted to live in that kind of a society, I’d move to Tehran.

Maybe you should do that instead since, by your standards, it’s a much better place to be?

    So Bresnahan believes that, as long as they’re “representin’ da’ peeps“, the Whores on the Potomac™ can utter any and all forms of libel and slander against individual, named private citizens of the United States? (And even WORSE, individual, named members of the US military fighting in a war?)

    Let’s have one of the Congresscritters accuse Bresnahan of “cold-blooded murder, rape, child pornography & buggering of a barnyard animal” and see how long it takes HIM to find a lawyer and go after the utterer of the accusation.

    The sword cuts both ways, you fuckin’ moron.

    murtha…may he get everything he deserves, from each one of the Marines he villified.

    Our troops need our ongoing vigilant and loyal support; as is evident in another example of disrespect served up to them in Oakland recently.

    Going now to find an email addy for OAK airport.

    The closest I could find to contact OAK airport was Suggestions and Questions. I very “politely” made a suggestion regarding this policy.

    And you’re implying this is something new? Just about every law that has been passed, from handicapped access to racial hiring, to smoking in offices has a little rider on it somewhere that says they don’t have to abide by the new rules. :em72:

    I think of a dead Marine I called friend….and while he cannot stand in his own defense, I can stand for him. Murtha, in my mind you remain one of the lowest pieces of shit ever to grace our congress. Your past defiles the term Marine…..how quickly you forgot semper fi. No problem, many of us can help refresh your memory. Asshole !

    I say it again, I am still ashamed this piece of shit wore my uniform.

    I can’t wait to see this case unfold, even though I know what the result will be.

    Difference between prosecution and civil liability fucknozzle. Take the law book out of yer ass and look it up.

    “They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.”

    Hmm. A press conference, not in the House, and the subject matter was not being debated. No, the Speech and Debate clause does not appear to apply. Looks like Representative Murtha is on the hook for libel.

    BC

    That appears to be exactly what he believes. And we wonder why these megalomaniacs are drunk with power.

    Even if this, “speech or debate clause,” crap is true, and I highly doubt it, I fail to see that it’s, “clear,” that it is being exercised in this situation by Murtha. WTF does lying about a group of Marine’s actions in Iraq have to do with his capacity as a, “lawmaker?”

    The world’s only ex-marine has long slipped into the clutches of the Yellow Side.

    I sat n’ watched one of his minions get his yap smacked by a tatoo’d backhand (biker-bar, go figure) .
    From his back, the whiny one bleated “I have the right to say what I want!”
    ‘Came the reply; “I didn’t hit ya for sayin’ somethin”! I smacked ya for what ya said!”

    The ability to “get it” isn’t universal.
    When they avoid the content and promote the right to “say what they want”, it’s a distraction, deception, anything but reasonable scope of debate.

    I hope that Murtha will get what’s coming to him when he has to face that Marine. The fact that he comes from my home state makes me sick. :em38: I’m just hoping the Marine will make Murtha sick when the case is done. :em69:
