Private DOCUMENTS Could Ruin GOP Candidate
(TheRedWire.com) -The winner of the US Senate election to replace retiring GOP Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) could decide if Democrats or Republicans are the majority next year in the upper chamber. While GOP Senatorial candidates Mehmet Oz and Dave McCormick pound each other with negative ads, Kathy Barnette has swept in and could win the primary election on Tuesday, May 17.

Barnette’s fast-paced rise is causing shock waves in state GOP circles, who are now looking closer at her candidacy and record. Recently, Barnette, a National Guard veteran, was asked if she would provide copies of her DD-214, which is the military’s official release document from duty. On her website, she claims she served in the National Guard for ten years. Yet, Barnett’s campaign recently hung up on the Washington Free Beacon when they asked her to release her military records. That prompted more questions than answers about why she was being secretive with her military records.
In a query to Breitbart News, a National Guard spokesman said Barnette served in the Alabama National Guard from September 1993 to March 1998. On Wednesday, May 11, the Senate candidate finally released her records to several reporters.

Her DD-214 showed Barnette enlisted in 1990 and that the military gave her an honorable discharge in 2000. So, it appears that her unwillingness to release her records sparked more questions than the documents themselves.
