Yet another high-ranking naval officer has been accused of selling classified information for sex. This time it is a Navy commander who was arrested for allegedly providing secret ship movements to Singapore-based contractor Glenn Defense Marine Asia, which used the information to overcharge the Navy for its port services throughout the Asia-Pacific region. According to this article, he received in return $100,000 in cash, ritzy international travel accommodations, and the company of several prostitutes.
