By the way, evidently people still aren’t letting “Rubber Bullets” Reilly off the hook. #CanAnyoneConfirm? Rubber bullets, ear plugs; same diff! Help confused Huffpo journo ‘confirm’ more [photos]

Wait! Those weren't really rubber bullets the GSA was buying? @ryanjreilly @instapundit

Neely faces up to five years in prison if convicted according to the DOJ press release:

The indictment includes three false claims counts, under 18 U.S.C. § 287, and two counts of making false statements and using false documents, under 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Neely is scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court in San Francisco on October 20, 2014, before the Honorable Elizabeth D. Laporte, United States Magistrate Court Judge.

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment, and a fine of $250,000 for each violation. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.
