Here’s another item for your growing collection.
I was a cadet in Texas Wing in the 1990s when Oliver North backed Steve Stockman to represent our 9th Congressional District. After a few failures, he won election in 1994. In 1995, at a ceremony we attended at Jefferson County Airport (now Jack Brooks Regional), Civil Air Patrol inducted him into the Congressional Squadron.
He soon became known as The Fool on the Hill and lost his 1996 election. In 2012, he managed to get elected to represent Texas’ new 36th district.
Long story short, on April 12th 2018, Civil Air Patrol’s Steve Stockman was tried and found guilty of 23 felonies. Just this past November he was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $1,014,718.51 in restitution. The question is, when did Civil Air Patrol terminate his membership? ROTFLMAO.
Your team is dead-on-target in exposing Civil Air Patrol corruption of our elected government and the alphabits of aviation oversight. So here’s the proof for this story that I’m sure you will be looking for [links redacted].
