Democrat House Candidate William Hudson Connery III…Violates DoD Rules?

by Steve MacDonald

William Hudson Connery III - Violates the DOD rules for Candidates for political officeWhen he’s not promoting potential vote fraud by out of state college students, or telling us how he can’t stand people of faith, the New Hamphire House Candidate and Socialist Democrat from New Hampshire 17 Rockingham 17, might also be …violating Department of Defense directives.

To your right is a picture of Mr. Connery….in Iraq…in Uniform.  It’s a nice picture.  The status update says…“Just another day in Iraq.”  But it is posted on his Facebook NH House campaign page.

You see the nice little green thumbnail of his campaign sign in the upper left corner and the big blue words in Facebook Blue…William Hudson Connery III For State Representative.  Yeah.  I think that is a violation of DoD directive NUMBER 1344.10 Include or permit the inclusion of their current or former specific military duty, title, or position, or photographs in military uniform, when displayed with other non-military biographical details. Any such military information must be accompanied by a prominent and clearly displayed disclaimer that neither the military information nor photographs imply endorsement by the Department of Defense or their particular Military Department (or the Department of Homeland Security for members of the Coast Guard); e.g., “John Doe is a member of the Army National Guard. Use of his military rank, job titles, and photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement by the Department of the Army or the Department of Defense.”

4.3.2. Members included in subparagraph 4.3.1. may NOT, in campaign literature (including Web sites, videos, television, and conventional print advertisements): Use or allow the use of photographs, drawings, and other similar media formats of themselves in uniform as the primary graphic representation in any campaign media, such as a billboard, brochure, flyer, Web site, or television commercial. For the purposes of this policy, “photographs” include video images, drawings, and all other similar formats of representational media.
