It’s no secret that President Barack Obama’s Veterans Affairs (VA) agency has not treated our veterans well.
Long lines and secret waiting lists have resulted in the deaths of countless veterans. The same men and women who risk their lives and survived war have been mistreated and allowed to die by greedy Obama VA bureaucrats.
Now, there is some justice… The former head of of the VA in Cleveland will be sentenced to prison for years!
It’s about time Obama officials started seeing jail time for corruption:
William Montague, the former head of the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, is scheduled to be sentenced to prison Friday, more than two years after he pleaded guilty to 64 corruption-related charges.
Montague, 64, will be the final defendant as part of a wide-ranging FBI investigation into Cuyahoga County’s pay-to-play political system. More than 60 government officials, employees and contractors were charged as part of the case.
He pleaded guilty in 2014 to defrauding the VA through bribery and kickback schemes where he accepted tens of thousands of dollars from contractors in exchange for inside information.
U.S. District Judge Sara Lioi in Akron will sentence the Brecksville resident Friday afternoon.
In a sentencing memorandum filed last week, Montague’s attorneys asked for a prison sentence of four years, three months in prison. He has also agreed to pay nearly $400,000 in forfeitures, restitution and fees.
Montague ran the Cleveland VA between 1995 and 2010, and also ran the Dayton VA. At that time, he handed confidential information to a New York firm and a contractor to assist them with bidding construction projects, in exchange for massive bribes.
This wasted millions of dollars of taxpayer money, while veterans were left without the care they needed. Montague deserves far more than the 4 years in prison his attorneys are asking for.
Now, when will we see Hillary Clinton go to prison for her corruption, too?
