It seems another institution that is supposed to serve all Americans has gone rogue and gone leftist under President Joe Biden.
The Hill reported on Wednesday that the U.S. Air Force took responsibility for an inappropriate leak of military records belonging to Jennifer-Ruth Green, an Air Force veteran and a black Republican running in Indiana’s 1st Congressional District.
Green, according to Townhall.com, threatens to flip a seat Democrats have held for almost 100 years. As The Free Press recently reported, she is significantly outpacing incumbent Democratic Rep. Frank Mrvan in fundraising.
Her conservative views have also unhinged the leftist Congressional Black Caucus, which is dissing Green and backing her white opponent.
The records at issue involve a sexual assault Green reported in 2009. Politico referred to the incident in a recent article about Green’s election bid. The story said that an Iraqi soldier grabbed Green’s breast and exposed himself to her.
Green, a former lieutenant colonel, said she reported the incident against the advice of senior commanders, and that by doing so, her career was “intentionally derailed.”
She also said that she asked Politico not to report the story, but the outlet did so anyway. Such records are kept confidential and Green had not authorized their release.

Kevin Hansberger, Green’s communications director, told The Hill that her records were leaked to a Democratic opposition research firm that works closely with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which raises money to elect Democrats to Congress, including Mrvan.
The Air Force’s inspector general’s office said it had confirmed the records were leaked to the Democratic operatives.
Indiana Republican Reps. Jim Banks and Larry Bucshon said in a statement that the Air Force “improperly affected a competitive House race and must provide transparency before election day.”
“We are calling on the Air Force to publicly take responsibility for mishandling Lt Col Green’s service records,” they added. “Additionally, before the midterm election, the Air Force should release any information it has regarding the financial relationship between the DCCC and the opposition research firm that sent confidential records to Politico’s Adam Wren to smear a servicemember who happens to be running for public office.”
Ann Stefanek, chief of media operations at the Air Force, said in a statement to The Hill that the preliminary findings of an investigation revealed that “information was released to a third party by a junior individual who didn’t follow proper procedures and obtain required consent.”
“The Department of the Air Force takes its responsibility to safeguard private information seriously and the matter remains under investigation.”
Green ripped Mrvan and the Democrats in her own statement to Politico: “I’m a survivor of sexual trauma in the military, and I am being forced to discuss it publicly for the first time because Congressman Mrvan or his supporters obtained — either illegally or by egregious error — military records describing my sexual assault as well as performance reviews, and peddled those records to the media with the intent smear me and my military career.”
This is the latest in a series of incidents where liberals in the federal government use their official government positions to go after political opponents.

In June 2021, the IRS leaked sensitive tax records for billionaires such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Michael Bloomberg and Warren Buffett to ProPublica to try to make the case that they don’t pay any taxes.
Earlier this year, Attorney General Merrick Garland worked with the National School Boards Association to draft a letter asserting that conservative parents at local school board meetings were “domestic terrorists,” which led Garland to sic the FBI on those parents.
Also this year, a U.S. Supreme Court staffer leaked a draft of the court’s opinion overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision on abortion in the hope of pressuring the court to change course.
