WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- You would think two weeks after Election Day the mud-slinging would be over among the Republican candidates for Congress, but that's not the case.

Ilario Pantano beat Will Breazeale and Randy Crow for the Republican nomination for the District 7 US House seat. Even if you combined Breazeale's and Crow's votes, they would not have beaten Pantano. Yet the two want Pantano to step down as the nominee so the party can appoint a new candidate.

Breazeale teamed up with Crow in hopes of getting some questions answered. The two former Republican candidates say Pantano has secrets the public needs to know for the sake of the Republican Party. In a press conference this morning, the two asked Pantano to release information about his personal life, including military records, tax returns and information about his career and family.

"There are a lot of unanswered questions that I tried, that Mr. Crow tried, to get answered in this primary and he wouldn't do it," Breazeale said. "And it truly concerns me that people are falling for it."

Pantano said he has kept no secrets and released a number of documents, including his military records.

"Mr. Crow and Mr. Breazeale have worked hard to try and represent the people of the 7th District, but in the end I think their message wasn't embraced by voters," Pantano said. "Clearly, this race turned personal. We won the race two weeks ago, and we are still talking about it speaks to someone's ability to move on."

Pantano says he has no intentions of stepping down. He says he's never quit in a fight and never will.

Pantano will challenge incumbent Democrat Mike McIntyre in November.

Like you say, comments keep the conversation going.They also provide additional insight to the readers and the bloggers. Comments offer a different perspective and put a "face" to the readership. In a press conference this morning, the two asked Pantano to release information about his personal life, including military records, tax returns and information about his career and family."There are a lot of unanswered questions that I tried, that Mr. Crow tried, to get answered in this primary and he wouldn't do it," Breazeale said.

Pantano a lost cause for seat

Obama was not properly vetted and we ended up with a Socialist.

Pantano has not been properly vetted and McIntyre will eat him alive. He's a murderer, and WHERE are his discharge papers? Does he still receive ALL MILITARY benefits? NO - WHY? He was RUN OUT - a COWARD!!! He is not fit - plan and simple.

A waste for republicans who now have NO CHANCE of taking this seat due to the imposter and murderer in the race.

Wait til the REAL money is thrown out there to expose the easily exposed.

That's just MEAN!!!

Your comments regarding Mr Pantano are totally unfounded, cruel and mean. It is obvious that you know absolutely nothing about this man OR what he went through. He was exonerated of the accusations by a full and formal military court.

And you speak the word "COWARD"? This is the word we apply to people like you that hide behind fake cyber names, puffing their big cyber chest to make totally unfounded and rediculous claims as you have. People like you will NEVER expose themselves due to lack of credibility, lack of a military background and lack of political experience. All hot air, nothing more!

You must be in union with the same group that wanted to hang the Navy Seals during their last trial (charges dismissed, thank you!) and you thought it a happy day when you saw that our servicemen were murdered, burned and hung from a bridge in Iraq.

You may have a beef with Mr. Pantano, you may have a beef with the Republican Party, but when you start slinging personal accusations such as, "imposter", "murderer" and "coward" toward a soldier with his credibility, you border along the character of treason and treachery to your country (and I only assume you are an American). Maybe it's time you move to another one. Iran and Venezuela are looking for new citizens these days, help yourself, COWARD!!!

Ok, go ahead and elect the

Ok, go ahead and elect the Democrat McIntyre. A vote for McIntyre is a vote for Pelosi and her installation of Charles Rangle - Ways and Means who writes tax law, and Henry Waxman and all the rest. Anything is better than a Democrat.

Moron

why did you not go to his press conference in Wilmington or at least watch the highlights on this channel?

His discharge papers were presented. As in honorable.

Is this another screen name psuedonym for Will the Whiner?

Or was this paid for by the McIntyre for Congress Committee?

I know the Congressman, he would not stoop so low or allow a member of his staff to do so.

Hey Will.....quit posting on

Hey Will.....quit posting on here! You're getting kind of nasty now with comments like this....you continue to shame yourself doing this.

He resigned his commission, he wasn't "run out."

Will, get some help. They have some wonderful anti-psychotics today. It's not all lithium and thorazine any more.

Was any body awake during Nam ? Was any body awake on September 11th 2001 ? How do you feel when you go into a Wal-Mart and you see these people walking past you ? Do you ever wonder, "what if they are a sucide bomber ?" Am I paranoid ? No. I am a realist. Just recently in New York, if that bomber hadn't been a dork and knew what he was doing, how many people would have been killed then ? Remember this,in Brunswick Co. we have an ammunition depot, Sunny Point, and just around the curve the nuclear power plant. Just a thought.

Patano

Sore loosers just can't let go.Best man won get over it.Stop trying to turn up trash.I bet if it were known you haven't lead a pure and wonderful life.Grow up!

It IS a DEAD ISSUE!

I'm fed up with the innuendo and outright fabrication of facts that Will Breazeale and Randy Crow have tossed around. Fortunately, we in the 7th district have a stand-up Republican Congressional candidate in Ilario Pantano. ALL of the stupidity throw out by Breazeale and Crow was answered yesterday by the Pantano press conference:
Honorable Discharge- check. The campaign handed out photocopies of the certificate.
Military Records- check. The campaign had the full record on display for any and all to read.
Worked for Goldman Sachs- check. There was a 10,000 word article on display from a very prominate national magazine quoting former co-employees of Pantano's at GS.
How he earns his income- check. Pantano's wife was brave enough to let everyone know she works as a successful Executive Recruiter, which allows her husband to run for a Congressional seat.
Defend the Defenders- check. The head of the local VFW spoke, as well as Pantano's mother and founder. All questions answered there too.

And speaking of Breazeale and Crow...I'm guessing they shouldn't be attempting to toss around lies when their own personal histories are so checkered:
Breazeale's court records stack up almost 3 inches thick and include numerous, horrendous issues.

The point of this all is to say, "IT IS A DEAD ISSUE"...if I may be so bold as to quote Ilario Pantano.

Response to "Yeah, loser, say more"

You know, you're comment could have been a really good one, but you HAD to throw in a line like "lying Democrat!" REALLY?? That line completely took away any redeeming quality your post had. Stop calling names, grow up and have an adult discussion without maligning others! NO wonder this country is in the shape it is!

Not to mention, it's a redundancy

"Lying Democrat."

That's like saying, "hopping rabbit" or "singing soprano."

Agreed

A good point - Democrats should not have to accept Mr. Breazeale either.

Democrats who want a change to the way business is being conducted in Washington should support Mr. Pantano.

Here's all that needs to be said about Mr. Breazeale to guage his character: Around 1030 yesterday he stated on live video feed that Mr. Pantano had a GENERAL discharge and that it was less than HONORABLE because his service was less than honorable.

He stated this as a fact - and Mr. Breazealed straigt-up lied.

The reporter asked what proof Mr. Breazeale had to which Mr. Breazeale responded that he had none.

At around 1130 - Mr. Pantano handed copies of his HONORABLE Discharge to members of the press.

For a guy who was running on his Reserve Lieutenant Colonel comission in the Army it is ghastly that he would disparage a fellow veteran's service with NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER.

Character counts and Mr. Breazeale's is lacking in several areas.

If Breazeale or Crow Know Something

. . . SPIT IT OUT! Casting aspersions ain't gonna cut it this election year. If they truly know something we should know, SAY IT! Otherwise, bow out gracefully and support the winners of your own party!

Winning

If they can't beat a Republican how do they expect to beat a Democrat? Ilario is what is best for this party and Nation. We need strong leaders for a strong goverment. This isn't recess, there are no "do overs".

Headline says it all

I heard steel in Pantano's voice at his press conference. There was an unstated, but clearly evident cold determination that he was going to deal with the losers' petty silliness & lunacy ONE. MORE. [freakin'] TIME. And then he was DONE with it.

As he said firmly, "This is a DEAD ISSUE."

And you know what? I'm done with it too. I'm done withe the whining and the backstabbing and the unfounded innuendo and the out right LYING on the part of Breazeale and Crow.

What an embarrassment those two losers are, to their gender, to their party, to their state, and to their country.

Next Announcement

Brezeale & Crow form new political party -- Whiners & Sore Losers of America.

Let's move on to the big fight -- sending Mac & his mega checks back to Lumberton.

Guys, since you've all but embraced Mac, why not come out of the closet and rejoin the Dems.

How embarrasing is this going to get?

Will Breazeale has absolutely no class. I would say he is showing us all the very reason he was not chosen by the voters. His continuous whining is starting to irritate everyone. He lost plain and simple. Get over it Mr Breazeale. If you want somethig posted on here put your own tax returns on here for everyone to see. Put every detail of your life, every secret you have(and I bet you're gonna say you have none) on here. Maybe we all should dig a little deeper here to see why you are crying so much about not getting elected. Maybe there is more here than meets the eye. After all the job doesnt pay that much.

Get over it Breazeale

Maybe I'm wrong, but this isn't a popularity contest, its about attitudes and views. Most voters tend to follow candidates with similar attitudes and views (conservative, republican) and vote accordingly. Now Breazeale wants us to vote for McIntyre instead of Pantano??? What a loser.
Not only would I not support you now, but to recommend jumping ship from ideals that I thought we as republicans and conservatives bear together makes me disrespect you. You're truly a "typical politician". Thank goodness you didn't make this vote because you'd be the same as every other politician we're tired of now.

"Will" you please go away.....

Will - I voted for you bro, but you are embarassing yourself here. You should be ashamed of your actions! You mention buyers remorse...do you realize how many people that voted for you, seeing what you've done now, wish they hadn't? It makes me sick to see you lower yourself to the gutter this way.....at least you've got Randy to pull you out.

the 2 losers might want to

the 2 losers might want to watch themselves. you know how this guy gets when he gets antsy...

Respect?

any respect that Breazeale had is all gone now. He sounds more like a democrat now.

critisizm of Breazealle

The truth is Will Breazealle had a right to call for Pantano's disclosure of records of importance. If there's nothing to hide, where's the harm. But the behavior of the Pantano supporters was truly disgusting to the face of a man still serving his country. The weakness in the Republican Primary race falls on us all. The Republican party has shown little or no leadership through this primary and the last Presidential election. While this audience today mocked Will Breazealle for questioning Pantano or any candidate, I will remind you that the 7th District has failed miserably by not questioning and vetting candidates since 1898. Need I say more.

Yeah, loser, say more.

You posted nothing but crap all over re: Mr. Pantano. Anytime you, slick willie and crazy crow could have attended one of Mr. Pantano's events and picked up a copy of his records for yourself.

An I'm still waiting to see any proof that slick Willie ever, ever, ever served in any battle whatsoever. His incomplete records are bulls**t.

Man up, you clowns! Go back to being the lying democrats you really are and leave the republicans alone.

In other words, suck it!

Sammy O'Banion said: "While this audience today mocked Will Breazealle for questioning Pantano or any candidate"

Actually, this is factually incorrect. The audience did not "mock Will" for questioning Pantano. They applauded him when he said he was never running for political office again.

This is why you are still a Breazeale supporter, Sammy. You don't know a fraud when you see one, you are a terrible judge of character, and you fail to comprehend the situations around you.

Your spin on things confuses and upsets only YOU. Everyone else knows what's going on.

LOSERS!!!!!!

These guys have NO SHAME! Please go away, you are disracing your families!!!!

Republican candidates beating up Ilario Pantano

Wow this is silly stuff from a sore loser. When Pantano was hired by Sheriff Sid Causey, Blue line host and Sheriff candidate Marc Benson blistered Ilario on his show, basically calling him a killer and that he was unfit to be a deputy Sheriff. Now Breazeale and Crow attacking his character.
Pantano is a class act and patriotic American. God bless his campaign. Onward to victory Ilario!

Pantano is a Patriot..Benson and Breazeale are whiners

Who cares what crazy Marc Benson or Breazeale think of Ilario Pantano. Both are losers who don't have a shot at ever holding office. The republican party has distanced itself from Benson and now will do the same to Breazeale. Both handled defeat in a poor way, blaming their losses on the republican party.
This November, I will gladly vote for Pantano. The other two mentioned men would never get my vote or any family members for that matter.
Words Matter.

Pantano is scary

Pantano as I understand it shot and killed two unarmed Iraqi citizens and pinned a note to their bloody bodies. He was arrested for murder and something like 3 days into the court testimony Congressman Walter Jones came in and stopped everything. (Jones serves on the Armed Services and Financial Services Committees.) Pantano was NEVER tried, the victims NEVER had their day in court so how is it that Pantano is fit for duty of any kind?

Im sorry but I will vote for Mike before I vote for this man and I will also vote for Benson before I vote for a turncoat Sid Causey puppet.

Actually

Walter Jones did not interfere in the military proceedings. He merely monitored what was going on.

And if you think the 2 who were shot were unarmed, guess again. But if you want to insist they were, how about walking through a couple of the housing projects at 2 AM with a fist full of dollars.
