Mother of Slain SEAL Bashes Mitt

The mother of a Navy SEAL who was killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi slammed Mitt Romney on Wednesday for mentioning her son on the campaign trail. At a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday, Romney said that he once met Glen Doherty, the slain SEAL, at a Christmas party a few years ago and the news of Doherty’s death “broke my heart.” Doherty’s mother, Barbara Doherty, said she doesn’t “trust Romney." Later in the day, Romney aids confirmed the candidate will cease mentioning the slain SEAL in speeches.
