IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The FBI says an Air Force captain who oversaw a company's contracts to supply boots for Afghan soldiers switched sides after leaving government, taking money to represent the vendor in front of his former colleagues.
A complaint alleges Adam J. Pudenz of Carroll, Iowa, repeatedly sought U.S. government contract payments in 2011 for Kabul Milli Trading Company, which hired him as a $40,000-per-month consultant.
The complaint says that months earlier, Pudenz was in charge of managing those same contracts for the Air Force and took actions that benefited the company. He's charged with violating laws on lobbying and conflicts of interest.
Pudenz did not enter a plea when he appeared in federal court in Sioux City on Wednesday and was released. His attorney didn't immediately return a message left Thursday.
