Maryland Couple Accused Of Taking Bribes For Army Contracts

BEL AIR, Md. (WJZ) — A Bel Air husband and wife have been indicted by a federal grand jury on conspiracy and bribery charges related to contracting at the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

A superseding indictment filed Jan. 15 says 42-year-old John Kays and 41-year-old Danielle Kays steered $21 million in subcontracts to MJ-6, LLC, an Ohio-based company formed by 42-year-old Matthew Barrow and his wife. In return, authorities say Barrow paid the Kays about $800,000.

Money the couple allegedly used to buy two new cars, a power boat, jewelry, to throw a pool party at their country club and to pay credit cards.

“If the decision maker is compromised because they are worried about how much money they are going to get in their own pocket, then they are less worried about whether the tax payers are getting their money’s worth,” said Rod Rosenstein, United States Attorney for the District of Maryland.

They steered $21 million and got only $800k?
No wonder they got caught.

Bel Air is part of the swamp that needs draining

And they thought that they wouldn't get caught. Duh.

They probably would have done it again once they squandered the loot from the first go 'round.
