Why isn't this woman in prison? She abetted in the deaths of 4 American's in Benghazi, she's been involved in more scandals than Slick Willie such as her cattle futures boondoggle, the WH Travel office charade, Whitewater land scandal, sniper fire landing lie in Bosnia, e-mail scandal, billing records scandal from Rose law firm and confidential FBI files taken to Clinton WH.

Yeah poor little dirtbag got passed over by a east coast rabid wacko liberal. Doesn't say much for dirtbag but Schumer is even more of a radical socialist than Dickie is.

If the partisan posters will brush up on their comprehension skills, it is a democrat that is sponsoring this bill. Unions support it. If you believe parents should have a say, you agree with the democrats and the teachers' union. Your rants make no sense at all.

Sen. Claire McCaskill calls it a "massive fraud"

The U S Senate subcommittee on contracting oversight began hearings Tuesday on what Sub-committee Chair Claire McCaskill of Missouri calls a massive fraud in National Guard Recruiting across the country. McCaskill said bonuses were being paid to people for bringing other people into the National Guard fraudulently. 

McCaskill said estimates presented to the sub-committee by the top law enforcement officials from the army, "are this fraud would probably reach around $50,000,000."  She said, "It's the largest criminal investigation in terms of scope that the army has ever done in its history because there are so many people that were fraudulently accessing this money." 

McCaskill said the committee spent a great deal of time  in Tuesday's hearing discussing "How this happened, why it happened and how to keep it from happening in the future." The committee also wants to make sure that those involved are held responsible, "especially those who are in leadership positions in the military," McCaskill said.

 

She said the hearing did a good job of laying out some of the "deficiencies that we continually find in Government in terms of contracting and contracting oversight."
