APNewsBreak: Marine critical of Obama on Facebook says Corps moving to kick him out

SAN DIEGO (AP) ' An outspoken Marine critical of President Barack Obama says the Marine Corps is moving to kick him out.

Sgt. Gary Stein says he was notified Wednesday that the Marine Corps has charged him with using contemptuous words against the commander in chief and violating the Defense Department's guidelines barring troops from engaging in political activities.



Stein says the notification stated that the Corps was beginning the process to have him discharged.

Stein says he was told he was in violation for running the Facebook page called Armed Forces Tea Party and stating on the page that he would not follow unlawful orders from Obama. Stein says he launched the page to encourage service members to exercise their free speech rights.

He says he has done nothing wrong.
