Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California Republican on the Armed Services Committee, sent letters to House committee chairmen and the Army secretary urging them to cut funding to the Human Terrain System and shut it down. The program, begun during the height of the counterinsurgency wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, had documented cases of fraud, racism and sexual harassment dating to 2010, a USA TODAY investigation found earlier this year.

Former and current team members told Army investigators and the paper, on condition of anonymity, that they regularly claimed hours they didn't work, taking home more than $200,000 a year and months of comp time for little or no work. The Army's investigation showed some members were paid salaries topping $280,000 and also given six months paid leave upon returning home.

This is nowhere near the first such scandal of its kind.
