John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Dem Candidate May Have Used Veteran Status To ‘Broker’ Set-Aside Federal Contracts For Non-Vets

 

Luke Rosiak on May 10, 2018

A Democrat running for governor on his military and small business bona fides may have used his disabled veteran status to obtain government contracts and then hand off the work to non-veteran owned entities, a government audit found.

 

James Smith, a candidate for South Carolina governor in the state’s June 12 primary election, is a representative in the state legislature, serves in the National Guard, and runs a law firm in Columbia. He also finds time to operate the Congaree Group, a small company that has received millions of dollars in federal contracts. The company operates out of the same office as his law firm.

 

The firm boasted the capability to do everything from distributing pharmaceuticals to parking hundreds of cars per day as part of valet services at massive hospitals — all with Smith telling Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) officials he was its only employee, a 2013 document from the VA’s Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE) shows, which TheDCNF obtained.

 

“He doesn’t just work 40 hours a week,” Smith’s campaign spokeswoman, Alyssa Miller, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“It appears that [Smith] uses his [disabled veteran] status to secure VA set-aside contracts and pass the performance of such contracts to various non-Veteran entities,” the audit said, according to the VA’s findings. “Such conduct is prohibited.”

 

Smith worked 35 hours for the Conagree Group and also found time to represent his constituents and practice law, the South Carolina candidate told the VA.

The VA revoked the company’s ability to obtain contracts reserved for veterans, but the agency reversed that decision after Smith appealed, spokeswoman Miller said.

 

“The complaint was appealed and it was overturned and they’ve been renewed two times since then,” Miller told TheDCNF. Indeed, in March 2018, the VA said it intended to award a new valet-parking contract at the Augusta, Ga., hospital to Congaree.

 

Miller would not say on what basis the VA reversed the audit’s initial finding that Smith’s company was improperly connecting major non-veteran companies with contracts reserved for veterans in exchange for a financial cut.

"Scrutiny over Smith’s use of his veteran status comes as he is part of a new wave of Democratic candidates, like Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania, who are touting moderate positions and a military background to win elections in Republican-held districts"
