Air Force Confirms That It Improperly Released Personnel Files of Republican Congressional Candidate to Democrat-Aligned Dirt-Digging Firm, As Well as 11 Other Individuals' Records

The Air Force claims the Democrat Dirt Farm "misrepresented itself" -- but one wonders if this isn't a case similar to the FBI's pretending not to know that a lawyer they were taking fake "tips" from was Hillary Clinton's campaign lawyer.

What I mean is, of course, that this firm and the likely-Democrat Air Force staffer who released these files where the Dirt Farm misrepresents itself as entitled to the personnel files (which cannot be released with the affected individual's express consent), and the staffer pretends to believe this misrepresentation.

And maybe a small Research Stipend of $1000 is given to the staffer.


In an unprecedented breach, the Air Force improperly released to a research firm tied to Democrats' congressional campaign arm the confidential personnel files of eleven members of the military, including one involving a retired lieutenant colonel running for office as a Republican that detailed how she had been sexually assaulted in the Air Force, Congress has been told.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mike Rogers and House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer are demanding that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin explain how he will prevent future breaches of military members' private information while pressing to know if there will be criminal prosecutions.

Let me clear that up for you: There will be no criminal prosecutions.

...

"The Office of the Secretary of the Air Force (OSAF) has informed the Committee that it released 11 individuals' records over a 14-month period from October 2021-December 2022 to a private research firm which allegedly misrepresented itself in order to obtain access to the personnel records without authorization or consent," Rogers and Comer wrote in a Feb. 13 letter to Austin.

The Air Force has already acknowledged having "inappropriately released" the official military personnel files (OMPF) "of former Republican Congressional candidate Jennifer-Ruth Green to the very same research firm, Due Diligence Group (DDG)," the lawmakers noted. "That disclosure served to revictimize a servicemember by releasing details about her sexual assault."

Congressmen Rogers and Comer's letter to SecDef Austin demands answers in addition to prosecutions.

They'll get neither and like it.

Prosecutions are for people "parading" in Congress.

The release of additional service members' personal information highlights "not only the inadequacy of procedures to secure military personnel files, but also raises concerning questions of possible illicit motive or political partisanship," Rogers and Comer wrote.

"This conduct by the Air Force is, at a minimum, unacceptable," they declared. "The conduct by the research firm is quite possibly criminal."
