Horace Christopher Daughtrey, 28, and George Searcy, 36, of St. Johns County had pleaded guilty to conspiring to defraud the Department of Defense after discovering it doesn't check backgrounds and accepts bids online for supply contracts worth less than $100,000, prosecutors said.
What the fuck? Wouldn't supplying troops with the necessary equipment during a war seem like a pretty important thing? I would think that you wouldn't just trust something that important to some guy from the internets. Or at least once they had problems, they might try to check these things a little more carefully, but no:
When military officials discovered a problem with one of their shipments, Daughtrey and Searcy simply changed company names and kept bidding
I'm also especially proud that these assholes live in my area. I'm sure they think doing this stuff is ok, as long as they also make sure to have a Support the Troops ribbon magnet on the Hummers they bought with their profits.
