America’s Got Talent: Tim Poe Tells His Side of the Story (Sort of)

America’s Got Talent lying liar, Tim Poe, defends himself via email to the New York Post:

“It may not have happened exactly like I said it did,” he told The Post.  “I really do not remember a lot of things since the accident.  “I remember a blast going off by my head and being in Afghanistan and telling one of the sergeants,” he said. “It is like a dream . . . I can’t remember things exactly how it happened.”

On why he said on AGT that  he had never sung before he was injured in Afghanistan, Poe said:

“I do not know how to explain why I answered about never singing before,” he says. “I was in a band. But it was before the accident and at the time of AGT.

When the judges asked, before I could even think about answering my words had already came out.”

Poe supplied The New York Post with documents that indicate he was injured in the line of duty in Afghanistan but do not say how or when.Via Poe’s official retirement orders, he suffers from an “injury or disease received in the line of duty as a direct result of armed conflict or caused by an instrumentality of war and incurred in the line of duty during a period of war.”

So much dissembling, so little time…

In other news, Poe’s fiance, Carrie Morrisinsists that photo he submitted to AGT producers that turned out to be of another soldier, Staff Sgt. Norman Bone, was all a misunderstanding. “But I know that it was a mistake on his part. It was an accident. It was a complete accident,” she said. I wonder how long the fiance will continue to stand by her man?

And, TMZ is of course, totally embracing the Poe story. Apparently his family members are getting threats: “Poe’s family tells us … several family members have been getting death threats. We’re told Poe’s sister-in-law went to the store Thursday with her kids and someone came up to them and said, ‘We’re going to kill you and the whole family.’” So far, no one has contacted the police about the threats.

As far as Poe is concerned,  “a family member says she fears he’s suicidal. He hasn’t left the house since the scandal broke, and he’s been crying incessantly. One family member says Poe is suffering from Post Tramautic Stress Syndrome.”
