The Senate campaign of Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL) is acknowledging an earlier Richard Blumenthal-eque embellishment by Kirk of his military record. As we noted yesterday, Kirk’s House website at one point touted him as having served “in” Operation Iraqi Freedom, when in fact he served during that time, but not in Iraq. The campaign tells Greg Sargent, “Unfortunately, the official Web site listed the word “in” instead of “during” but was corrected in 2005.”
