These are just a few samples; there are many others. All told, next to nobody that matters is paying attention to the Defense Department’s absurd social media campaign. An FVAP insider told me that FVAP has devoted significant taxpayer resources to this internet folly. Meanwhile, FVAP scrambles to spin a story of success at odds with the data.
The DOJ isn’t the only place where any incoming Romney administration needs to clean house. FVAP is currently run by an interim director. That makes it easy for the next secretary of Defense to install new leadership that has both experience running elections as well as experience wearing the uniform. If that doesn’t happen, this bi-annual catastrophe will taint 2014 midterm elections as well as any 2016 presidential reelection.
