Tim Poe, a veteran who claimed he sustained injuries in Afghanistan and auditioned for America’s Got Talent last night, is lying.
I just confirmed this statement from Minnesota National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Kevin Olson that said Tim Poe did not sustain any injuries while serving in Afghanistan in 2009.
AGT producers f____ up this time. A lot of people think that Tim is going to win this year because of his backstory. Turns out his story was too good to be true. I can’t believe he pretended to stutter for sympathy! What a con artist!
Update: He doesn’t remember a majority of the details of his “injury” (Audio)
Update: Tim Poe’s DD214 proves he is lying (Video)

Sgt. Timothy Michael Poe served in the Minnesota Army National Guard from Dec. 3, 2002 until May 26, 2011, and performed as a supply specialist.
His military records indicate that he served with the Minnesota National Guard in Kosovo from Oct. 10, 2007 until July 15, 2008, and was deployed to Afghanistan from July 28, 2009 to Aug. 30, 2009.
Sgt. Poe’s official military records do not indicate that he was injured by a grenade in combat while serving in Afghanistan in 2009, as he reports. The Minnesota National Guard can also confirm that he was not awarded the Purple Heart Medal for wounds sustained in combat.
