Daines Statement on Stanley Patrick Weber Losing Tax Payer Benefits

U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the below statement regarding the termination of pension and benefits for convicted predator and former Indian Health Service pediatrician Stanley Patrick Weber.

I’m glad to see the Indian Health Service deny Mr. Weber’s federal benefits and cut off his pension. It is outrageous that a convicted pedophile was receiving taxpayer funded pension checks while serving time in prison. I will be reintroducing my bill to fix this horribly flawed system and ensure no predator receives a dime of taxpayers’ money,” Daines said.

Background:

In 2019, Daines introduced legislation to prevent convicted pedophiles from receiving a federal government pension. The Senator has plans to reintroduce this legislation in the 117th Congress.

Daines also sent a letter to HHS urging the Secretary to stop pension payments while Stanley Patrick Weber served his prison sentence.
