8. Former Congressman West

 

retires from the Army in 2004 after an Article 15 hearing to do with prisoner abuse. While he is permitted to retire with full benefits he is not promoted one grade in rank to full colonel.

He then gets a job teaching history for a couple of years at a public high school before he is hired by a mercenary contractor called Military Professional Resources Inc., (MPRI) where he works for 2 more years as the companies regional director to the Afghan Army in Kandahar and suddenly is in the money.

In 2008, he quits that job to run for Congress and is defeated, which usually would mean a ticket back to the classroom. Instead he runs again and wins after being bankrolled to the tune of about $5.4 million and being endorsed by the Republican Party pantheon. and is back in the money.

Now he can go back to MPRI. No one should allow him within a country mile of a public school.
