Neely's claims must have truth to them

When I saw Major Cindy Neely's campaign commercial talking about sexual discrimination under John Walsh's administration, I expected to see a speedy reply from his campaign offering Walsh's condolences and pledging to help the major find a resolution. Instead, what I saw was Walsh immediately attack her as lying and dismissing her claims.

I can only see one reason for such an uncalled for reaction from Walsh's campaign: Neely's claims must have truth to them. Why would Walsh pick on her if he wasn't trying to hide something that would be detrimental to his campaign? Walsh needs to come clean and explain in depth what his role was in the alleged discrimination, and why he feels it's necessary to call a female veteran a liar.

Frankly, I am disgusted with politicians who always seem to be pointing the finger at someone else for what they are responsible to look into and fix. I'm sick of Democrats acting like all women care about is birth control. We care about our partners, children, education, finance and the economy. We definitely care about a sitting Sen. Walsh accusing Neely of lying and having nothing to back it up. I for one will remember this in November when I vote for Steve Daines.
