This is the latest in a series of stories about the ethics and values of people who hold security clearances. Far too many Americans are "cleared" and far too few of them meet the minimum level of ethical standards.
You can go back and find stories of people who routinely abuse their government credit card, frequent prostitutes, hit their spouse, steal government property, leak sensitive information, lose their homes to foreclosure, and travel overseas without approval and it still won't matter. The process of granting clearances to people is severely broken.
