Eric Barton, Karma

Posted on Sun 11/11/2007 by


Eric Barton, Jack n Coke drinker, is getting a little taste of Karma. This would be the same jerkweed who, in Iraq, was so high and mighty that he actually believed that a letter of recommendation from him would actually matter to someone like me.

Looks like a letter of recommendation from Eric Barton wouldn’t be worth the paper it was written on.

(San Antonio) Billions of dollars are pouring into Iraq to fight the war and rebuild the country, and companies are vying for a piece of the action.

In some cases, contractors paid kickbacks to military contracting officers to gain the upper hand.

For Eric W. Barton of Tennessee, he may have had an edge in bed.

Barton is accused of having an affair with Air Force Capt. Sherrie L. Remington, a former contracting officer in charge of awarding some of the lucrative work.

The Army claims Barton used a six-month relationship with Remington to his advantage to win at least $2.5 million in contracts for his former employer, an American security and ordnance disposal company.

As a result, the Army has proposed that Barton and the company he worked for, EOD Technology Inc. of Lenoir City, Tenn., be blacklisted from getting any more government business, according to the Army’s report, which was obtained by the San Antonio Express-News.

The proposal is based on allegations that federal procurement and ethics rules were blatantly violated.

Nice to see another asshole get what’s coming to him.
