Pay to Play, Stray or Stay: Richard Anderson Contributors

Cadet Maleah Strawser and Brig Gen Rich AndersonCAP Cadet Intern Maleah Strawser with Brig Gen Rich Anderson in 2012

[Editor’s Note: One of our readers  was inspired to do some research into Civil Air Patrol members who donated money to Rich Anderson’s political campaign.    After they donated, members like Brian Campbell, Angelo Porco and others received forgiveness for straying from the corporate line and others received placements to more senior level positions.  The story sent to us via contact was better and more complete than the comment.  Thank you for your contribution and please keep sending us more information.]

Attention AuxBeakers:

The recent articles on Brian Campbell, Richard Anderson and the IG report from Allan Stein started me looking into Civil Air Patrol members who paid to play and hold positions in Civil Air Patrol.   AuxBeacon should add a story about Angelo Porco’s 2B  under Bowling and later reinstatement.  With Anderson exposed and removed from office, you and your readers can follow the filthy money without fear.

    This is useful, thank you. This may be off-topic, but you might want to add Rep. Scott Tipton to your watch list. He is with 3rd Congressional district Colorado. He’s had multiple ethics violations.

    He has received $39,000 in campaign contributions from Texas-based energy firm SG Interests over the course of his career. In 2016, he drafted a bill for drilling (oil and gas) in our Thompson Divide that included large sections taken “word for word” from one of their proposals.
