WASHINGTON (AP) — Pentagon investigators have confirmed four instances of ethics and other rule violations by the chief of Pentagon security.
The accused official is Steven E. Calvery, director of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency. The Pentagon said that Calvery has disputed the conclusions reached by the Pentagon inspector general.
The IG, in a report made public Monday, said Calvery had misused his position by arranging for a non-employee to use his agency's firing range and misused his subordinates by having them order and pick up his lunch and retrieve coffee for him.
The IG also substantiated allegations that he improperly authorized time off for employees to attend a golf tournament and selected a subordinate for promotion based on their relationship rather than the subordinate's experience.
The Pentagon said Calvery declined further comment.
