As a follow up to this post, Here We Go: Ranking Democrat on the Powerful House Judiciary Committee: Unwanted Sexual Advances, and this one HOT Reporter Calls for Paul Ryan to Release All Congressional Harassment Settlement Records, Second Amendment lawyer and author of Progressivism: A Primer on the Idea Destroying America, comments:
The code Ostrowski links to reads:
Whoever embezzles, steals, purloins, or knowingly converts to his use or the use of another, or without authority, sells, conveys or disposes of any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof, or any property made or being made under contract for the United States or any department or agency thereof; or
Whoever receives, conceals, or retains the same with intent to convert it to his use or gain, knowing it to have been embezzled, stolen, purloined or converted—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; but if the value of such property in the aggregate, combining amounts from all the counts for which the defendant is convicted in a single case, does not exceed the sum of $1,000, he shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
The word “value” means face, par, or market value, or cost price, either wholesale or retail, whichever is greater.
