Young California Democrat Is receiving some well-deserved criticism for her unpatriotic comment about service members.
Sara Jacobs had the opportunity be to the youngest congresswoman at age 28 but may have blown her chances with her unpatriotic comments about her opponent, R-Colonel Applegate. Jacobs cites that she did not mention Applegate’s name in the comment but that means little to nothing at this point.
This should not bode well for Sara Jacobs as the seat she is attempting to fill is California’s 49th district and contains the West Coast’s largest Marine base, doh. Clearly, Jacobs did not think this whole thing through.

Prejean left the military as a captain after six years in uniform and now works as a lawyer representing service members and veterans who were sexually assaulted while on duty.
Ashley Hayek, the president and CEO of a firm that raises money for Republicans, also attacked Jacobs for her comment.

Parke Skelton, a consultant for another Democratic candidate, attorney Mike Levin, tweeted that Jacobs’ comment “Seems like a devastating error in this district.”
