Senate passes revised Stolen Valor Act

The Senate moved Monday to make sure nobody profits from lying about being a military hero.

The Stolen Valor Act of 2012, sponsored by decorated Vietnam War veteran Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., passed the Senate as an amendment to the 2013 defense authorization bill.

Webb’s proposal makes it a federal crime to make a false claim about having served in the military or having received a military decoration if the object of the lie is personal gain.

Those caught lying for personal gain or for a tangible benefit would face a fine of up to $10,000 and up to six months imprisonment.

This could mean lying to get a job, either for the government or private sector, running for political office, trying to effect the outcome of a civil or criminal court case or getting an appointment to an executive position at a non-profit organization, under terms of Webb’s legislation.

Because people who serve in the military are held in great respect, lies about military service are especially harmful, the bill says. Employers often hire veterans ahead of others, the public often elects veterans, the government sets aside contracts for veterans and people who serve are held in great respect, especially for those who have received awards for valor, the bill says.

“False claims of military service or military heroism are an especially noxious means of obtaining something of value because they are particularly likely to cause a tangible harm to victims of fraud,” the amendment says in its findings.

The Senate-passed amendment, now part of S. 3254, is far from the final work on the bill.

The House of Representatives has its own Stolen Valor legislation, HR 1775, sponsored by Rep. Joe Heck, R-Va., that also would reinstate criminal penalties for lying about military service and military awards that were struck down by the Supreme Court on free speech grounds.

Hecks’ bill, passed by the House in September, covering only false claims related to specific awards. It covers the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Silver Star and Purple Heart. Also covered would be campaign badges, including the Combat Infantryman’s Badge, the Combat Action Badge, the Combat Medical Badge, Combat Action Ribbon and Combat Action Medal.

The penalty is tougher under the House bill, with up to one year in prison.

Like Webb’s measure, Heck’s bill makes it a crime if the false claim is done “with the intent to obtain money, property or other tangible benefit.” The Senate measure describes examples of a tangible benefit or personal gain. The House bill does not.

They got it right as long as "other tangible benefit" includes trying to up their reputation to score free beers or a date.

We will still need to police this on our own since the poser population is going to continue to explode exponentially and it won't end, there are still 'Nam "vets" getting outted.
