Yet another so called “veteran’s advocate” group has bit the dust but this time they took with them our lieutenant governor and 57 others who are under indictment and an inquiry into the funding of political campaigns.
The quote above is from Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi talking about a scam that purported to raise donations for veterans. Only 2% of the almost $300 million raised ( by illegal gambling schemes) went to veterans; the rest was funneled to the members of “Allied Veteran’s of the World” and their so called “affiliates”.
Bondi also said, if effect, that using the word “veteran” is a guise for fraud.
No surprise here. Those of us who assist and advise Veteran’s regarding eligibility for benefits have seen other scams by companies who exploit the word “veteran”. And as an elder law attorney, we see the exploitation of senior citizens in the winter of their lives.
