ARMY HONORED RETIRED GENERAL WITH TOP
© 2015 MilitaryCorruption.com
It looks like David Petraeus isn't the only retired Army general to get away with adultery.
Brigadier GEN Anthony "Tony" Tata, up until recently North Carolina's Dept. of Transportation secretary, not only escaped punishment for his misconduct, but the Pentagon gave this West Point "ring knocker" (Class of 1981) the Distinguished Service Medal when he packed it in after 28 years in Army Green.
Reminds us of the old adage DIFFERENT SPANKS FOR DIFFERENT RANKS. An enlisted member or junior officer would have been hammered for what the general got away with.
Jeffrey Sinclair was an exception (see related stores box below), but he was "politically incorrect" and an asshole to boot, unpopular with his fellow generals, so he was reduced to lieutenant colonel. He escaped conviction for "rape" (his accuser was caught lying time and again on the witness stand) and got to keep at least part of his pension.
ANOTHER DOUBLE-STANDARD OF JUSTICE
Tata had lots of pals in high places and they protected him. According to documents obtained by the Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, Tata's first documented instance of adultery was back when he was a captain in 1985.
By 1993, the high-ranking officer had fathered a child with a woman not his wife.
Do you think the general might have to face the same rules that lower ranks do in such a situation? Yeah, right.
Army regulations read that one can only retire in the same grade they last "satisfactorily" served in. Which means Tony T. could' conceivably have been busted all the way back to first lieutenant. But "not to worry" for the plugged-in brass hat.
His nearly $8000 a month retirement check is safe. The Army's double-standard of justice when it comes to flag officers and adultery continues on. Like one of the "perks" of the job.
