No, he's not a degenerate. Or a drug addict. Or a fugitive from justice. Or a rapist. Or a freeloader. Or a thief. Or a professional beggar. At least as far as we know. Which sets him apart from all the other members of the "occupy" movement.
But he does appear to be a pathological liar:
Army records at odds with Occupy veteran's claims
He served honorably in the military. Why couldn't he have left it at that?
Some kind of war hero? Did he think no one would check?
The juicy part? He's "a dedicated member of the Occupy Buffalo movement."
And they can have him.
