Former Executive Director of the South Carolina Republican Party Todd Kincannon attacked Iraq war veteran Michael Prysner on Twitter Sunday, in a series angry and profane tweets. “You are an Iraq veteran? Shame you didn’t come home in a body bag,” one tweet reads. He continued, “I wish the Iraqis had better aim with his ass,” and “I hope if that guy is ever in combat again, the enemy splatters his brains JFK-style. He deserves it.” Kincannon’s tweets against Prysner are packed with anti-gay slurs. Read the Raw Story article here.
