Some of you will remember Paul Tillson – the shitstain from New Jersey who showed up on our Interwebz wearing enough military decorations to choke a woolly mammoth. The guys at This Ain’t Hell outed Tillson as an outright fraud, and he proceeded to threaten legal action against them, using written language so bad, that it made my cactus wilt!
I resent the fact you call me a fony soldier. Please check the latest regulation an where I purchases my clothing, by sending in a copy of my DD214′S WITH RIBBONS AUTHORIZED. I EXPECT A FULL APOLOGY THANKYOU
I can haz Valor?
Well, for those of you who claim Stolen Valor is a victimless crime, and we can’t prosecute someone for lying, because it’s a First Amendment issue…
Meet Paul Tillson.
No, this is not the same Paul Tillson from New Jersey, who appeared in wedding photos looking like a medal-hoarding freak.
This is a Paul Tillson from Oregon, who served honorably, got an education and opened his own IT company that does online computer repair, and is a disabled veteran.
The two Tillsons are staggeringly different, and yet, when people Google Paul Tillson, they’re inundated with photos of the freak, rather than the legitimate businessman.
Mr. Tillson’s business is undoubtedly affected by the lying freak’s claims, and there’s little he can do to control the damage.
Still think Stolen Valor is a victimless crime?
So if you ever run across a computer problem, you might want to contact the first Tillson, who served honorably, and who is running a legitimate business.
I doubt you want to get in touch with the second Tillson, unless it’s to ridicule his very existence.
Good luck, Mr. Tillson!
