The lowest life forms always seem to find each other.
It is my hope that someday "Ration" overcomes "Greed". Foolish as it is to dream.
Rampant "Greed", and "Bid Rigging" crash down like ocean waves, but will keep chasing those who steal from taxpayers.
Anyway, check out today's story:
Contractor facing federal kickback charges
- Federal prosecutors have brought criminal charges against a Tennessee construction company executive whose company performed work at two Georgia Army base construction projects — one at Fort Benning in Columbus and the other at Fort Gordon in Augusta — with a combined value of approximately $37 million.
- The charges center around David Kennedy's relationship with a subcontractor, Southern Atlantic Construction LLC (SAC), and its owner, Gary Hamby, in 2015. Prosecutors said Kennedy gave work to SAC in return for cash payments, gifts and wire transfers and approved fake invoices submitted by SAC. The proceeds from the alleged criminal behavior were directed toward a shell company bank account opened by Hamby.
- Hamby pleaded guilty in 2017 to violating federal anti-kickback laws, according to TuscaloosaNews.com and has agreed to cooperate with investigators. Kennedy is out on bail awaiting trial.
