The wheel keeps turning:
An investigation that found wide-ranging misuse of money at the U.S. Naval Academy was a factor in curtailing the tenure of its outgoing superintendent, the Navy’s chief spokesman said Monday.
The investigative report released Monday found that an improper, off-the-books slush fund was used to pay for tailgate parties, luncheons and other events for senior academy personnel.
Vice Adm. Jeffrey Fowler is leaving the academy this summer after serving as superintendent for 3 years, the minimum term required by statute for the post.
“The outcome of this investigation was a factor in him not serving longer,” said Navy Rear Adm. Denny Moynihan, the Navy’s top spokesman…
The Office of the Naval Inspector General’s 110-page report concluded that the slush fund used by the Naval Academy Business Services Division was “a sham” with little accountability.
There was a lot of that going around.
