Forget the horrible grammar and ask why on earth do they have to trash this hero by mentioning his grandfather, who hasn’t been noteworthy for 25 years?
Navy SEAL killed in Iraq went to school in Arizona and was to close to disgraced grandfather Charles H. Keating Jr. https://t.co/1ejmzsW1Du

Odd how they don’t point out most of the people Charles Keating gave money to were Democrats.
The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators – Alan Cranston (Democrat of California), Dennis DeConcini (Democrat of Arizona), John Glenn (Democrat of Ohio), John McCain (Republican of Arizona), and Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (Democrat of Michigan) – were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB). The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln.
Whatever the case, this is a disgrace.
@AP Are you kidding me? Can't tuck your partisan petticoat out of sight for a hot minute? Not even to honor a fallen SEAL?

@AP Why do you have to speak of his grandfather? This man gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country. You are diminishing his sacrifice.
