Murtha Must Go!

In August of 2007, the U.S. Marines acquitted Lance Corporal Justin Sharratt of charges that he joined in the killing of innocent civilians while responding to a terrorist roadside bomb attack in Haditha, Iraq. Sharratt was one of eight Marines accused by Congressman Jack Murtha of committing "coldblooded murder" against innocent civilians.

To date, seven of the eight have been cleared of all charges. Despite mounting public pressure, Congressman Murtha has refused to apologize or retract statements made during a widely publicized media tour against the so-called "Haditha Marines."

Speaking for the Marines, Lt.General James Mattis told Justin, "With the dismissal of these charges, you may fairly conclude that you did your best to live up to the standards … In the face of life or death decisions made by you in a matter of seconds in combat."

Today, Justin's dad Darryl speaks out in this exclusive web video to defend his son's honor and the sacrifice of America's fighting men and women.

On August 1, Lt. Colonel Bill Russell returns to the campaign trail from active duty to provide Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District with a conservative alternative to John Murtha. Join our ranks - learn more, volunteer, donate, pray!

With gratitude,

Campaign Manager
Russell for Congress

P.S. Bill's campaign is about more than defeating John Murtha. Your contribution of $50, $25 or even $10 will mean an astounding victory for traditional values, lower taxes, smaller government and a strong military.
