    Navy officer charged with trading secrets for Lady Gaga tickets

    By Cheryl K. Chumley-The Washington Times Tuesday, October 22, 2013

    Cmdr. Michael Vannak Khem Misiewicz, a high-profile U.S. Navy commanding officer, was arrested on federal bribery charged, accused of trading classified information for Lady Gaga concert tickets and prostitutes.

    Also charged in a recent U.S. District Court hearing in San Diego was Leonard Glenn Francis, the CEO of Glenn Defense Marine Asia Ltd., and John Bertrand Beliveau II, a special agent for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, The Daily Mail reported.

    Cmdr. Misiewicz, 46, is charged with giving Mr. Francis sensitive and classified information — including the movement of ships — and with helping the CEO arrange for the Navy craft to visit ports where he has contracts, The Daily Mail said.

    The contracts were valued at around $200 million, and they enable Mr. Francis‘ company to provide tugboats, fuel and security for the Naval vessels, The Daily Mail reported.

    Mr. Francis is alleged to have given the commander, in return, travel, luxury hotel stays and prostitutes, as well as other entertainment — including five tickets to a Lady Gaga concert in Thailand in 2012, prosecutors said in the report.

    If I were to list all of the things in the world that might entice me to betray my country by giving away military secrets, Lady Gaga tickets would rank somewhere between "colonoscopy" and "testicular cancer."
    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

      uhh.. prostitutes was glossed over with the Lady Gaga stuff...

      Many a country has had it's secretes betrayed because of sex.
      Robert Francis O'Rourke, Democrat, White guy, spent ~78 million to defeat, Ted Cruz, Republican immigrant Dark guy …
      and lost …
      But the Republicans are racist.

              Installed by a now bitter former lover, no doubt.

                  I suppose they just cast lots to determine whose turn it is to manage decor in the House of Pain.
