Mullins is a one-man anti-military band. Aside from dehumanizing innocent Iraqis, Mullins claims that military men spend their time raping military women. One time a woman was taking a shower late, and guys went and held the door closed so she couldnt get out, while one guy went in to rape her, Mullins told Salon.com. The original Salon.com story included a quote from Mullins reading, Rapes were happening every night ... Married men were doing it, everyone. Salon.com deleted the quote after Mullins stated that he had been misquoted -- really, Mullins clarified, married men were only committing adultery and sexual harassment, not rape, on a constant basis.
Why did the Obama campaign pay Mullins -- a professional anti-war protestor with a history of anti-military statements -- over $3,000 for unspecified services during July-August 2007? What was Mullins role with the campaign? Calls to the Obama campaign were not returned; neither were calls to IVAW.
All along, Barack Obama has pled ignorance with regard to the people with whom he associates. Former Weathermen Underground terrorist Bill Ayers is just a college professor, according to Obama; Reverend Jeremiah Wright is just a spiritual advisor without political input. These are absurd claims in their own right. But whether or not Obama should be held responsible for the statements of his friends, he should certainly be held responsible for the people he puts on his payroll.
