THREE MORE NAVY OFFICERS CAUGHT UP IN
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
The biggest Navy scandal in years just got worse.
Three more officers, including a retired four-striper, have been caught up in the "Fat Leonard" bribery case in which crooked slob, Leonard Glenn Francis of Singapore, ripped off American taxpayers to the tune of millions of dollars.
He had help from corrupt U.S. Naval officers - at least two captains - who accepted booze, cash, prostitutes and luxury hotel accommodations in exchange for tipping off GDMA (Glenn Defense Marine Asia) about ship movements to various foreign ports-of-call
UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OBTAINED
This undercut competing contractors, who supplied our warships with food, fuel, and other provisions. Sources tell MilitaryCorruption.com GDMA regularly over-billed costs and padded expenses knowing they were immune to scrutiny because of "friends" in high places.
For example, the federal indictment reveals now-retired CAPT Michael Brooks, while attached to the American Embassy in Manila as U.S. Naval Attaché, accepted money, the service of prostitutes and other considerations, in exchange for leaking classified information to Fat Leonard.
Incredibly, Brooks was so cozy with his corrupt contractor pal, he even allowed Francis to write up his own evaluations of services provided, then submitting it to the Navy under the captain's name.
PITTS AND DEBORD ALSO ACCUSED
CMDR Bobby Pitts, 47, between 2009 and 2011, was in charge of the Navy's Fleet Industrial Supply Command (FISC) meeting logistical needs of the U.S. Seventh Fleet. It was an ideal place for him to funnel information to Fat Leonard.
We have been told that Pitts also provided GDMA with a copy of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) report detailing the probe of the corrupt provider for contract fraud.
Investigators say LT CMDR Gentry Debord, logistics and supply officer of the USS Essex between 2008-2009, also ,was bought off with cash, hookers and all-expense-paid luxury hotel rooms.
MORE TO COME
Brooks and Debord have been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bribery. Pitt has been hit with one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.
These three crooks bring the number to 13, of active and retired Naval officers, plus one petty officer and an agent of the NCIS, who were involved in the bribery scheme. Nine have pleaded guilty, including CAPT Daniel Dusek, CMDR Michael Misiewicz, CMDR Joe Louis Sanchez, LT CMDR Todd Malaki, PO1 Dan Layug and NCIS Special Agent John Beliveau.
