NRCC yanks Majewski’s ad support over lies

Following the discovery that J.R. Majewski’s statements about having served in Afghanistan after 9/11 were lies, the National Republican Congressional Committee has pulled $1 million worth of ad support for the Ohio GOP House candidate.

The Associated Press broke the news of Majewski’s apparent dishonesty, citing bombshell military records that refute the candidate’s claims on the campaign trail that he served in Afghanistan while in the Air Force.

In just weeks before the midterm elections, the NRCC decided to cancel its intention to air a scheduled TV ad in support of Majewski in the wake of the investigation.

The military records reveal that Majewski, who describes himself as a combat veteran, spent six months at an air base in Qatar, an ally of the United States, assisting with plane loading but did not participate in any actual fighting.

He claimed he served in Afghanistan and even went 40 days without taking a shower since there wasn’t any running water. He also frequently uses his military service in his congressional campaign.

Actual combat veterans criticize Majewski for making false claims

Don Christensen, a retired colonel and former chief prosecutor for the Air Force, said: “Veterans have done so much for this country, and when you claim to have done what your brothers and sisters in arms truly did to build up your reputation, it is a disservice.”

Majewski remained silent regarding questions concerning his claims of military duty in Afghanistan. Instead, he went around congratulating himself and criticizing Marcy Kaptur, a fellow opponent.

“My accomplishments and record are under attack. Meanwhile, career politician Marcy Kaptur has a forty-year track record of failure for my Toledo community, which is why I’m running for Congress,” he said.

Marcy Kaptur, a representative for the Toledo region since 1983, blasted Majewski for his false claims regarding his military service in Afghanistan.

“Every man and woman who has proudly worn the uniform of our great country has been offended by the notion that anyone, much less a candidate for the United States Congress, would deceive voters about their service in combat. J.R. Majewski owes each of these heroes a thorough justification for his lie,” Kaptur said in a statement.

Majewski is a strident Trump supporter

He is one of a number of Republican candidates, many of whom are seeking office for the first time, whose unvarnished personal stories and hard-right views may reduce the likelihood of a Republican “red wave” on election day in November. He is a striking example of a new breed of politicians that ignore facts in an effort to be like Trump.

According to AP, Majewski was also present at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, when the uprising broke out.
