Navy Investigating 60 Admirals In Corruption Scandal Centering On Prostitutes And Luxury Gifts


The latest fallout from the Navy’s investigation into the “Fat Leonard” corruption scandal has left 440 active duty and retired personnel, including 60 admirals, under review for their conduct.

The “Fat Leonard” scandal involved Malaysian contractor Leonard Glenn Francis, who obtained classified information in order to get huge contracts for his Glenn Defense Marine Asia company (GDMA) by offering officers expensive parties, luxury gifts, and prostitutes in ports from Vladivostok, Russia to Brisbane, Australia, according to The Washington Post.

Of the 440 people under review, according to the Navy, 230 were not guilty of misconduct. But 28 people, including two admirals, have had criminal charges filed against them by the Justice Department. Although some of the people under review may not be prosecutable in civil court, they may have committed offenses prosecutable in the military justice system.
