Feds: Navy Secrets Purchased With Hookers and Gaga Tix

Unusual accusations are unfolding in a federal court case in San Diego -accusations that involve a gregarious Malaysian businessman, Leonard Francis (aka Fat Leonard), military secrets, prostitutes and Lady Gaga tickets. Prosecutors in court papers say Francis, who is well known among U.S. Navy commanders in the Pacific for having serviced warships for 25 years, obtained military secrets by bribing a U.S. commander with prostitutes and Lady Gaga tickets.  The scandal is reverberating throughout the Navy as it signals serious national security breaches and corruption.
