Benetech deemed ineligible for federal set-aside program

The federal government has booted controversial contractor Benetech from a set-aside program aimed at steering contracts to disabled veterans after The Times-Picayune published stories showing that Aaron Bennett, rather than his father, a Vietnam veteran, actually ran the firm.


Last year, The Times-Picayune reported that although William Bennett holds Benetech's contractor's license, he has no control over the company's daily operations.

Yeah?  Well...there is this from two years ago:

It's all about the money ... that a father, whose status as a war veteran, would collude with, and enable his spoiled ass brat son to game the system is very sad indeed.

Shame on both of them.

The thread from two years ago reminded me of:
dubious election victories and deleted e-mails.

Other things you've got me thinking about again:
Infinity Surety, the airport, the crime cameras, the roof of One Shell.
