GOP Yanks Ad Buy For Ohio Candidate Who Lied About Military Service

A Republican nominee for Congress in northwest Ohio has seen his support disappear overnight after an investigation revealed he lied about his deployment to Afghanistan after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Sources familiar with the commission told Politico that they bought $960,000 worth of advertisements from the Toledo, Ohio market, believing that Majewski could win the district. They withdrew that purchase on Thursday.

And a biography published by the House Republicans’ campaign committee confirmed that Majewski’s “squadron was one of the first on the ground in Afghanistan after 9/11.”

But documents published Wednesday by the The Bharat Express News show that he was never in Afghanistan during his time in the Air Force.

Ohio’s 9th congressional district is currently represented by Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur. Despite her status as the longest-serving woman in U.S. House history, the district shifted to the right in realignment, jeopardizing her reelection.
