U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman

By now, Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman has seen just about every slander imaginable thrown his way by his Democrat opponents and their angry surrogates, but this weekend they have stooped to a new low, accusing the state’s only veteran in Congress of cowardice.

Tyler Law, a prolific Twitter activist and employee of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, has thrown a lot of insults Coffman’s way, but we believe that this is the first time he has called the former Marine “scared.”

For the record, Coffman is the only Member of Congress who has served in both Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom.  As a teenager, Coffman volunteered to join the military, and at age 50, the man raised his hand to come out of military retirement and deploy to Iraq when the Marines were understaffed.

While we’re sure that Tyler Law is a big hero in someone’s eyes, calling Coffman “scared” is a pathetic joke that marginalizes anything else that drips off Law’s keyboard.

We’d like to know what Jason Crow, running against Coffman even though he lives outside of the Sixth Congressional District, thinks of this latest slander as a fellow veteran and DCCC candidate of choice.
