Mommy's guilty, but Heather walks. Darleen Druyun, who left the Air Force to help Boeing conspire against Airbus (and US taxpayers) has a daughter named
Heather McKee:
The job discussions were initiated by Druyun's daughter, Heather McKee, herself a Boeing employee for whom the company had created a position two years earlier after her mother contacted a senior Boeing executive. McKee sent a series of encrypted e-mails negotiating her mother's potential employment to a senior executive of Boeing, court documents said. The senior executive met Druyun at a private conference room in the Orlando airport and offered her a job a month before she recused herself from decisions involving the Air Force and Boeing.

When the meeting ended, court documents said, the executive told Druyun: "This meeting really didn't take place.''

The senior executive was not named, but Druyun named [former Boeing chief financial officer Michael M.] Sears when asked by the Judge with whom she was negotiating her potential employment at Boeing. Sears has not been charged and has denied any wrongdoing. Druyun and the Boeing senior executive conspired to cover up their discussions before Druyun eventually admitted them to an investigator for Boeing, court documents said.
More from FindLaw: 'Druyun and her daughter declined to comment after the hearing, but Druyun's brother, Edward Lofton, a Catholic priest in South Carolina, said the deal on her daughter was critical for Druyun. "It's been very painful for her," he said.'

So Heather the encrypted matchmaker walks away uncharged (and still works at Boeing!), but also off the prosecutorial hook is Michael Sears, the now-discredited author of a book on management and business ethics that was to have been published in February 2004.

Can't get enough of that military procurement corruption? More about the Druyun saga here, here, and here. Perhaps we can get Edward Lofton, Druyun's priest brother, to lead us in prayer for the safe return of all the money that has vanished from the US Treasury thanks to his sister's lack of a conscience.
