Ted Nugent has been accused by Dee Snider of being a "draft dodger" who avoided signing up to the army.
"Ted's always been a gun-toting conservative. But what gets me is that he was actually a draft dodger," Snider told Noisecreep, "to the point where he didn't bathe for a week, and vomited on himself to deliberately avoid the draft," which presumably means the army.
"I totally understand why he did that, but all of these Republicans who love Ted don't seem to know or remember that too well. It's crazy that he's become one of the voices of Conservative America even though he was a draft dodger," added Snider.
Nugent was quick to respond via Twitter:
Shame on @deesnider for falling for the big lie I challenge u to man up to the truth We xpected btr

Whatever the truth is, Snider still thinks most Republican rockers are hypocrites:
"It's mind-numbing how many conservative rock musicians there are now. That's so convenient when you have a lot of money. 'Now I have money, so I'm a Republican.' But when they were broke, struggling musicians, they were liberal and all for sharing the wealth. It's so convenient."
