As an Officer whose oath requires a duty to protect and defend the Constitution, LTC Terrence Lakin asked the same question Governor Neil Abercrombie did: where is the birth certificate? Lakin asked the question as part of his duty as an officer not to obey unlawful orders; Abercrombie asked it as a ‘favor to an old friend’, and with concern for the political ramifications for 2012 .
Lakin’s punishment was stripping him of his livelihood, benefits, and jailing him in Leavenworth. Abercrombie’s punishment for asking the same question is remaining Governor to continue obfuscating the truth, handing out benefits, and spying on public employees.
Shouldn’t Abercrombie be in jail? After all, in Obama’s world, anyone who asks him who he is gets punished.
