Albany - A South Georgia veteran, who says he's tired of the government's poor treatment of the military, is running for Congress. Lee Farrell, of Lee County, is part of the new Veterans Party of America which now has 1,200,000 members.

Farrell wants the government to stop sending money and aid overseas, and he hopes to give veterans and soldiers better care and benefits.

"Illegal immigrants can get medical treatment on demand. Veterans have to wait 8 months to a year to get a doctor's visit, and there is a two year waiting list on surgeries," said Farrell.

Farrell must get 13,900 signatures by July 28, 2004 to run in the November election. He wants to run for the 2nd Congressional District seat held by Sanford Bishop.
