Senior Pentagon Public Affairs Official on Leave for Stealing License Plates

by | Jun 3, 2016

Bryan Whitman, the senior Pentagon public affairs official charged with stealing a Capitol Hill nanny’s license plates, was placed on paid administrative leave Thursday and had his top-level security clearance revoked, reports The Washington Post.

The Post report, in part, added:

“It remains unclear whether Whitman, the highest-ranking career civilian in the Defense Department’s public affairs office, had informed his superiors of the alleged crimes — which he was required to do.

“The Pentagon’s top public affairs officials were stunned by the news Wednesday that he had been charged nearly a month ago.

“Whitman did not immediately respond to a call Thursday morning, and his attorney declined to comment.

“A source close to Whitman said the 58-year-old former Army Special Forces officer had informed “appropriate personnel” at the Pentagon after he was charged in May with three counts of misdemeanor theft.
