Every day you can read another story about a charming "Christian" who has duped someone into believing that faith made them virtuous. Few examples, however, are as daring or as lucrative as the one published in yesterday's Washington Post. Below is a description of a hotel event planner who, from an office in her small two bedroom apartment, managed to land a no-bid sub-contract for nine months of homeland security work. She billed the government for $24 million dollars and managed to pocket $5.4 million dollars for herself.
Former Eclipse associates interviewed by The Post in recent weeks described Sims as bright, charming and capable. Her friends dismissed the possibility of impropriety, saying she and Sullivan are both devout Christians who would never take advantage of the government for personal gain.
