    In Issa's 1998 campaign Ad he claimed he had been a soldier who was part of an elite bomb detecting unit that guarded President Nixon at the 1971 World series. But, when a reporter looked into it a spokesman for the Nixon Presidential Library said Nixon never attended any of the World series games that year.

    Issa also boasted about his stellar military service record in his campaign ad but according to military records he had been given a bad conduct rating on several occasions. He had also had a military "Article 15" and had been demoted. He was also accused by fellow soldiers of stealing another serviceman's vehicle.

    And lets not forget the mysterious arson fire at the car alarm factory 'Steal Stopper which Issa owned in 1982. Joey Adkins, the former owner of Steal Stopper, provided the main evidence against Issa. On the afternoon of September 20, 1982, in a lengthy recorded interview with an insurance investigator, he described a series of suspicious actions by Issa just hours before the fire. Adkins, who still worked for Steal Stopper, said that Issa removed the company's Apple II computer from the building, including "all hardware, all software, all instruction books," and also "the discs for accounts payable, accounts receivable, and customers list, everything." According to Adkins, Issa also transferred a copy of every designed used by Steal Stopper from a filing cabinet to a fireproof box. He also said that Issa put in the box some silk screens used in the production of circuit boards. Insurance officials noted that, less than three weeks before the fire, Issa had increased his insurance on the building and contents four times the value. "Quite frankly," Adkins told the investigator, "I feel without a doubt in my mind that the man set that fire."

    This is the guy that's holding himself out as a crusader for what is Right and Just? That slug is a paragon of virtue.
