The Best and the Brightest?

This is rich
A federal employee who took bribes to boost test scores for Arizona National Guard applicants is believed to have helped dozens of soldiers enlist under fraudulent circumstances.

Christine P. Thomas, formerly of Sierra Vista, is set to be sentenced in federal court in Tucson later this month under a plea deal she struck with prosecutors.

Thomas took bribes to boost test scores for Army Guard applicants between 2000 and 2002, court records show. About 70 test scores for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery were rigged in a conspiracy that involved local Guard recruiters and Thomas. The test scores help determine what job a recruit may be assigned.

And for your daily dose of irony.
The National Guard applicants involved in cheating will not face any consequences.
