A Beech Island woman employed with a private contractor used by the National Security Agency at Fort Gordon pleaded guilty Thursday to criminal charges in federal court.

Allison Michelle Waddell, 33, admitted in U.S. District Court that she claimed almost 750 more hours than she worked, defrauding the government of more than $60,000.

Waddell worked as an analytic reporter for an NSA subcontractor from August 2009 through October 2010 and again from October 2011 to September 2012. Waddell submitted numerous time sheets falsely stating the number of hours she had worked, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office.

As part of her plea agreement, Waddell has already paid $10,000 toward restitution. She faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

I wonder if the truth be

I wonder if the truth be known; just how much financial fraud and waste in government costs working people every year. From incidents like this, the fraudster at the wastewater plant, bus drivers loitering on the clock, medicare, medicaid, SS disability, overcharges for goods and services provided to the government by dishonest vendors and corps, on and on....

Yet libs wonder why conservatives desire limited government and more competitive private sector services.

And another thing

Bye-bye security clearance. Or at least I hope that the folks who grant them and take them away are awake enough to monitor this and take appropriate action.

High labor rate and falsified

High labor rate and falsified time card. Sounds like she should get a job with Heery and submit her time card through the Water Department.

I want to see a picture of this loser

She deserves to be outed so that everyone who see her can spit on her shadow for stealing from all us taxpayers.

I'd also like to know how she spend my hard-earned money.
