    So this guy lied about his trips and his staff doctored emails to try and cover it up and still gets to keep his job. Only has to pay back the expenses.
    VA chief of staff doctored email to cover up travel expenses, inspector general finds

    Also why is the Secretary of Veterans Affairs going to meetings and summits in Europe?

    Isn't the VA a wholly US based job?

    What record needing to be set straight? The article clearly states he also worked in the previous administration. Yet he committed his transgressions and fraud while working in the current administration. Along with 3-5 others in the current administration that have misused funds for personal travel.

    No doubt he was an honorable and dutiful public servant UNTIL Trump became POTUS and then was immediately and completely rendered a dirtbag, solely by the existence of the Trumpster. :rolleyes:

    If they started handing out jail time for all this fraud, waste, and abuse, all these globetrotters might think twice.

    I said no such thing, honestly I have never heard of the guy until I read the article. But if you have information on any previous misdeeds by this guy please share.

    My post was not about taking a shot a you.

    The points are:
    1. If this guy was stealing from his employer it likely is not the first time
    2. If he did it before but now it’s being publicized because he’s part of the Trump administration shame on media.
    3. If Team Trump has such lax controls that those souls who would be tempted to do wrong if they could get away with it and now are emboldened to do so; then, shame on those self-proclaimed “Swamp drainers” as they are doing the country no favors.
    4. Anyone caught stealing more than a pencil at a higher level should be fired, his pension taken away and be tried n a court of law and if convicted sentenced accordingly. I have no tolerance for law-breakers whether it’s the 19-year old with a gun at the register or a 50 year old with some Excel wizardry. Fact is, the older you are the more you should know how to behave.

    They should be criminal offenses. Fraud, more specifically.

    Tell us when Trump sends his wife and kid on separate planes to go on vacations. And tell us when he books up the ENTIRE Taj mahal at a few million dollars in the process. Feigned indignation or pure hypocrisy... I wonder which one it is for the Leftists here, and in Pravda West, a.k.a. the mainstream media.

    It's theft of the American people. He should be charged accordingly.

    My guess is that his transgressions were caught now but have been ongoing. The VA is a cesspool of entitled people who are supposed to be helping our veterans.

    Actually they have already done that. Melania was flying around for her weekend trips to Mar A Lago for 6 months from NY while Trump was in the WH. Just recently while Trump was in Davos she flew down to Mar A Lago for a day trip just to get away.
    Honestly you call yourself a conservative(you're not, there was a time that your posts were more reflective of your conservatism) but you bury your head when it comes to fiscal matters of the govt now. Everything is some leftist plot when it is a matter of fiscal responsibility. You are truly brainwashed.

    This guy was an Obama Admin holdover.

    In case you are confused, that means it should be ok for you to criticize his fraud, rather than go into some bizarre "but Obama did this" defense on behalf or your Orange god.
