Birther Soldier Makes Good
“I implore all Service-members and citizens to contact their Senators and Representatives,” wrote Easterling, “and demand that they require Mr. Obama prove his eligibility. Our Constitution and our great nation must not be allowed to be disgraced.”
Taitz was rapidly propelled to her current status as a kind of gonzo celebrity. But what happened to Easterling? Greg Skilling filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the answer, and found that Easterling had been slapped on the wrist, then … promoted.
1LT Easterling received an administrative reprimand for violation of theUCMJ.
1LT Easterling is currently assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3d Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) in the Support Operations Division.
*After this incident and subsequent investigation and action, 1LT
Easterling was not involved in any other incidents. As a result, his supervisors recommended him for promotion on his officer evaluation report.*
Other birther soldiers have been less lucky.
