Ex-Navy SEAL Glen Doherty's sister speaks out on politicizing his death

Tonight on OutFront, CNN’s Erin Burnett spoke toKate Quigley, the sister of former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty who was killed in this year's Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.  Burnett asked Quigley if she shared her mother’s anger towards Gov. Mitt Romney for speaking about having met Doherty in a campaign speech.  Quigley said:

“I don’t, and my mother is angry, and she’s grieving.  The fact of the matter is what Governor Mitt Romney said about my brother Glen is true, and he called him a hero and we’re honored by that.  And we’re honored by what Obama did for the homecoming.  The fact of the matter is being an American hero can be completely bipartisan and everybody wants to point fingers and play the blame game – let’s blame the terrorists.”
