UPDATE: War Veteran On America’s Got Talent May Have Lied
Yesterday, I posted my thoughts about an awesome story I saw on ‘America’s Got Talent’ Monday Night. Today, reports are surfacing that may point to supposed war vet, Tim Poe as a fraud.
Yahoo is reporting that Poe’s records have been examined and that there is no record of his injury, nor has he received a Purple Heart for such an event. They also note that while Poe did serve in the Minnesota National Guard, it was only for 9 years and not the 14 he claimed on the show.
I sure hope this is just sour grapes and not the truth, but I guess these days, people will do anything to be a star. A great story like Poe’s used to make for a great show, but now in this reality TV world, if the real ain’t real…you get called on it. I guess he should have written a script instead.
