Imperial, California - The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) PAC has announced its endorsement of Congressman Bob Filner over Republican Candidate Nick Popaditch for the 2010 General Election. The VFW-PAC becomes the most recent veterans group to endorse Congressman Filner.

“The VFW-PAC’s endorsement of Congressman Filner was based on his strong support for veterans, national security and defense, and military personnel issues,” said Salvatore J. Capirchio, Veterans of Foreign War-PAC Director. “My proudest service in Congress is being Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee. Veterans have made incredible sacrifices for our country and they should be able to depend on the health care and pensions promised by our Government!” said Congressman Filner.

I think their PAC has been infiltrated by the far left.

The VFW PAC has certainly gone rogue.

Appears the VFW PAC is well on it’s way to becoming insignificant.

Somebody should ask there VFWPAC RATS why service people serving overseas are being denied their voting rights. If RAT Filner is such a strong supporter of military people, why is this happening?

There was a discussion of this on the local radio yesterday. Apparently this pac is not affiliated with or controlled by the VFW, and the VFW has been trying to get it to drop “VFW” from its name. But a formal request for this has to be voted on at their annual convention, which isn’t until next August. So this pac continues to makes these kinds of endorsements on which the actual VFW has no input.

I have been donating to the VFW for years. I have sent my future VFW donations to Popaditch and LTC West.

I will never EVER donate to the vfw again.

I am pi**ed.

Filner is a red diaper baby. His father was a memeber of the American Communist Party. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

Another example of liberal/ commie infiltration into American Institutions.
A massive purge must take place to clean out the scum for our,

COURTS
UNIVERSITIES
STATE DEPARTMENT
POLITICAL OFFICES

While were at it, bulldoze the UN into the East River

PACs spend a lot of time and money grooming, wining and dining, lobbying, and ass-kissing whatever thug happens to be in office. They have a huge investment in them, and consequently tend to support incumbents. They'd hate to have to go through all that again with a new office-holder.

If you're interested in cleaning up Congress, most PACs are your enemy.

It’s not the VFW

It’s the VFW PAC.

So donate to the one not supported by the PAC..

They ain’t trying to hard. This problem was noticed by our Department in 2008 and the National has its thumbs up its lower regions and their fingers in their ears, Life Member.
