One crooked TV Anchor down a dozen more to go!
Wayne Simmons, 62, has been a regular guest on Fox News and has served as an intelligence advisor in Afghanistan and in the U.S. Army. There’s only one problem; he got all those jobs as a result of a lie.
Paul M. Abbate, the Assistant Director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office, said that,
‘Mr. Simmons lied about his criminal history and CIA employment in order to fraudulently obtain government contracts, and separately, defrauded a victim through a phony real estate investment deal. With these criminal actions, Mr. Simmons abused the trust of others, both in and outside of government, for his own personal financial gain. I commend the work of the talented FBI personnel and prosecutors who vigorously pursued this case and brought about today’s guilty plea.’
