An 82nd Airborne commander's comments about Ellmers draw reprimand

A front-page Washington Post story Jan. 26 on misconduct by military leaders says Martin Schweitzer, a commander with the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division who met Rep. Renee Ellmers at Fort Bragg in 2011 later sent emails to a general and a colonel describing her as "smoking hot" and jokingly referred to explicit sexual acts. Ellmers, in a statement, said she was pleased with the corrective actions taken.
