I have heard at least one talking head say that they would still try to "protect the taxpayer." Let me tell ya folks. We taxpayers are responsible for putting this idiotic leadership in place. We taxpayers are paying for our sins.
Jennifer Wilson has just posted a comment on your blog post, Governments' broken promises, and you need to approve it:
It is slowly getting worked through, and today Ash Carter, our Secretary of Defense has directed the National Guard to stop trying to recoup the $$$.
I just read this update as well: "Director of the Army Lt. Gen. William Grisoli, told Stars & Stripes newspaper that investigators believe that 104 criminal cases of recruiter incentive fraud have been adjudicated, and 16 people have been imprisoned, including five National Guard recruiter assistants who each collected over $1 million in fraudulent bonuses.
The worst offender appears to be California National Guard’s incentives manager Army Master Sgt. Toni Jaffe. After admitting that, from the fall of 2007 through October 2009, she “routinely submitted false and fictitious claims on behalf of her fellow California National Guard members,” amounting to $15.2, she pled guilty to making “false claims against the United States.” Jaffe served to 30 months in a federal prison. Three California Guard officers also have pleaded guilty to criminal fraud and agreed to pay restitution."
I hope this sickening situation will be corrected TODAY. And what happens to all the soldiers who have already repaid the bonuses? Will they get their money back?
