Tea Party Marine Gets the Boot

SAN DIEGO (AP)-- The Marine Corps said Wednesday it has decided to discharge a sergeant for criticizing President Barack Obama on Facebook.

The Corps said Sgt. Gary Stein will be given an other-than-honorable discharge for violating Pentagon policy limiting speech of service members.

The San Diego-area Marine has served nearly 10 years in the Marine Corps. He has said he was exercising his free-speech rights.

The discharge will mean he loses all benefits.

A federal judge previously denied a request to block military discharge proceedings against Stein, who called Obama an enemy on Facebook.

U.S. District Judge Marilyn Huff ruled then that the military has the right to respond to Stein's online comments in a case that has called into question the Pentagon's policies regarding social media and the limits regarding the speech of active duty military personnel.

Sad he ruined his 10 year career ignoring his oath and the regulations spewing his teabagger hate mentality. They did the right thing. Maybe he could work security for the draftdodging has been rocker booted from Fort Knox. When will they learn. Watch what you say and where you say it. If you are in the military, let this be a lesson to you.
