It may be a mid-October surprise. It may not be.
The New York Sun's Thomas Lipscomb reports today about the circumstances of Lt. (JG) John F "Lurch" Kerry's discharge from the United States Navy in 1972.
The possibility exists that Lurch may have been dishonorably discharged from the Navy, only to have that fact covered up by subsequent presidential executive orders. These details could be cleared up rather simply if Lurch would allow his entire military record to be released for public inspection.
The problem is, Lurch has yet to sign Standard Form 180 which waves his right to privacy regarding the aforementioned letters.
Looks like Lipscomb has done some fairly good research on this article. Will anything become of it? Perhaps that might just be some smoke on the election horizon.
