Further analysis of the criminal case against U.S. Army Major (Dr.) Davis

I've blogged recently (click here and here) about the case of U.S. Army Major (Dr.) Davis.  Major Davis recently pled guilty to violating 18 U.S.C. §209.  In my opinion this is a very serious matter.  The federal government and certainty the military cannot tolerate government employees being corrupted by for-profit companies. 

The Office of Government Ethics has published an excellent analysis (click here) of 18 U.S.C. §209, which is an important law enacted to keep the military free of corruption. 

It's good to see DoJ prosecuting corrupt military officers.  But one must still ask where the Army judge advocates where on the case.  Did they let Major Davis off the hook because he was an Army doctor, or was this a situation where DoJ wanted to prosecute Major Davis in federal court.
