Doolittle, John Taylor, turned 18

Doolittle, John Taylor, turned 18 on 10-30-68, then completely avoided Vietnam with seven deferments. The Selective Service chronicles five deferments for Doolittle from July 25, 1969, through June 12, 1972.

Then he did a Mormon mission in Argentina, getting two more divinity deferments from July 25, 1972, through July 27, 1973.

Doolittle’s a seven-time draft dodger, a 20-year career politician, and special interest junkie.

Vote him into oblivion.
