FMR. RADM ROBERT GILBEAUWhoever said "crime doesn't pay?"  Former Navy Rear Admiral Robert Gilbeau is yet another example of that old axiom in the U.S. military: "different spanks for different ranks."  The 1983 Naval Academy graduate and ring-knocker got a mere "slap-on-the-wrist" after admitting he was one of the crooked senior officers who took bribes from a corrupt Asian contractor in the "Fat Leonard" kickback scandal. 

The Fremont, Calif. native cut a deal with the Feds last October, whereby he agreed to accept a one-grade bust to Navy captain (0-6) in exchange for keeping his military retirement pension.  We say he should have been court-martialed and reduced to seaman third-class swabbing the deck.

While the Navy public relations people will crow a flag officer is "going to jail," we hear that infamous swindler Bernie Madoff is pretty comfortable at the "country-club" lock-up he's housed at in North Carolina. Gilbeau likely will be out in a few months on "good behavior."  Then he can draw his three-quarters retirement pay for a four-striper captain.

LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK

The last laugh is on us. Any CPO or Lieutenant j,g, in the fleet who did what Gilbeau did, would have been shipped off to Leavenworth for a much longer sentence. And any pension they might have earned, would have been forfeited..  "Crime" paid off pretty well for this 56 year-old brass hat.

At sentencing this week in San Diego, Asst. U.S. Attorney Alana Robinson took a bow in the direction of the news cameras when she said, "When tempted by parties and prostitutes (Gilbeau) chose karaoke over character and cover-up over confession.  Does she write her own stuff?  OMG!

Gilbeau is said to be the first active-duty Navy admiral in many years convicted of a federal crime.  Despite his sweetheart deal in 2016 where he keeps his slightly-reduced pension, the shameless ex-admiral tried to gain sympathy for himself, claiming he had PTSD from an incident in Iraq back in 2007.

At least current law cuts any VA "disability" payment to 10 per cent for convicted felons.
