Candidate for California's 50th Congressional district wore unearned SEAL Trident

Longshot congressional hopeful James Kimber apologetic for "horribly stupid' thing to do"

EAST COUNTY — Congressional candidate James Kimber wore a U.S. Navy SEAL Trident for more than a year despite never completing training for the elite force to earn the prestigious designation.

Kimber said Tuesday he is truly remorseful for the episode that stained his military career but did not end it.

“It was more than 20 years ago and it was a horribly embarrassing and stupid thing to do,” he told U-T San Diego, which has pictures of Kimber wearing the Trident. “Fortunately, I was able to finish my Navy career.”

Kimber, a Democrat, is running against three-term incumbent Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, in the predominantly Republican 50th Congressional District representing much of East County, Escondido and Temecula in southern Riverside County....

Unearned SEAL insignia, Democrat in the 50th, running against an incumbent. That's three strikes against Mr. Kimber. Frankly with his background, he doesn't stand a chance of getting elected to any post in Southern California irrespective of his otherwise impressive military career and all of his apologies. It's a deal-breaker around here, and there are some bars where he'd be at risk of getting a beating. Maybe he should relocate to another part of the state where the military doesn't have as much clout.
