Former California National Guard Sergeant -Plea Agreement She Submitted Over $15 Million In False ClaimsSubmitted by HonorGod on Fri, 06/29/2012 - 11:58
Having held multiple positions in the California and Texas National Guard over 27 yrs, I can attest that most ARNG are so poorly managed at all levels that that management borders on incompetent corruption.
As a Readiness NCO (full time senior active duty manager) of 2 units while in CA, I actually had a few phone calls with the MSG in this case way before 2007. Although I do not thinkany of the contacts with the MSG had anything to do with illegal bonus claims, I would not be surprised.
The point of this post is to inform people.
For over 15 years, Jaffe, a resident of Citrus Heights, was the bonus and incentive manager for the California National Guard. As part of her plea agreement, Jaffe has admitted that beginning in at least the fall of 2007 and continuing to on or about October 6, 2009, she routinely submitted false and fictitious claims on behalf of her fellow California National Guard members. Jaffe admitted that she submitted claims to pay bonuses to members of the California National Guard whom she knew were not eligible to receive the bonuses and to pay off officers loans even though she knew the officers were ineligible for loan repayment. According to the plea agreement, Jaffe admits responsibility for $15.2 million in wrongfully paid bonuses and loan repayments. An audit of the full loss amount is ongoing.
