Marine faces court martial over Facebook posts
A Marine faces court martial after criticizing the President on Facebook and creating an “Armed Forces Tea Party” page.
He claims his First Amendment rights are being inhibited. A department directive states that service members may “register, vote and express a personal opinion on political candidates and issues, but not as a representative of the Armed Forces.”
Former WQAD HD News 8 anchor and reporter Vanessa van Hyfte explains.
