Arrest warrant issued for director of U.S. Navy Veterans Association
Investigation finds evidence of identity fraud
(Columbus) Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray and Hamilton County
Prosecutor Joseph Deters last week announced that a nationwide arrest
warrant for identity fraud has been issued for the man claiming to be
"Bobby Thompson," director of the U.S. Navy Veterans Association
(USNVA), a supposed charity based in Florida. "Thompson" disappeared in
June amid a growing number of state investigations into the
organization's fundraising and spending, including revelations that the
man who appears to have orchestrated this sham charity made hundreds of
thousands of dollars in political contributions to candidates throughout
the United States and in Ohio.
