"Jean Schmidt: Walter Reed scandal ‘overblown.’"

A statement from Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH), who infamously called decorated Marine Corps veteran Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) a “coward“:

While I believe that this building is beneath the standard of what is acceptable, I think it is wrong to suggest that mold found behind an air conditioner somehow is an excuse to say that all of our veterans are receiving substandard medical care. […]

I found the situation at Walter Reed to be overblown by both politicians and the media.

As Josh Marshall noted, the Cincinnati Inquirer has a story HERE.
