Looks like somebody picked the wrong week to be a four-star general.
The Associated Press reports that former Africom head Gen. William “Kip” Ward is being demoted for spending misconduct and must repay $82,000 in unauthorized and excessive travel expenses.
Please tell us “unauthorized expenses” isn’t a euphemism.
Meanwhile, the lavish spending in D.C. continues unabated.
