Here's a scandal that apparently came to light in 2010.

It's about a government contractor in Malaysia.

His name is Leonard Glenn Francis aka "Fat Leonard".

Apparently he has pleaded guilty along with many others to bribery and corruption including some U.S. Navy people.

This is a big swamp case and not all that much "press".

Good reminder of what's been happening over the years.


ONE-THIRD of all Navy brass caught in huge foreign bribery scandal

Hundreds of military officials – including some of the highest-ranking brass in the Navy – are accused of helping a shadowy Asian merchant fleece Uncle Sam for tens of millions of dollars… and you probably haven’t heard a peep about it.

It’s called the “Fat Leonard” scandal, and the investigation into bribes and corruption one of the biggest in U.S. military history. The Navy has investigated 440 people, including 60 admirals, for possibly taking bribes in exchange for phony government contracts and sweetheart deals.

That means the Navy suspects that up to one-third of all its admirals were on-the-take from a foreign agent.

“Fat Leonard” is Leonard Glenn Francis – a 6’3”, 360-pound Malaysian businessman who makes his money servicing naval vessels in the Pacific.
