HHS Responds to Daines' Demand to Revoke Government Pension of Convicted Pedophile

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines received a letter from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in response to the Senator’s call for action to take away convicted pedophile Stanley Patrick Weber’s government pension.

“I’m glad to see HHS respond to my demand and take action in finding a way to prevent this convicted pedophile from receiving a dime of his government pension,” Daines said. “This disgusting situation should never have happened in the first place – that’s why I’ve introduced and am fighting for legislation that would prevent future convicted pedophiles from receiving a government pension.”

Background:

On May 1st, 2019, Daines introduced a bill to prevent convicted pedophiles from receiving a federal government pension. 

In early May, IHS responded to Daines’ February letter by outlining the steps being taken to demand accountability for Weber.

On March 28, Daines sent a letter to HHS urging Weber be stripped of his federal pension.

In March, a report showed that Weber could receive nearly $2 million while serving in prison.

On February 21, Daines sent a letter to IHS demanding answers on Weber, a former IHS pediatrician recently convicted of sexually molesting children while working on the Blackfeet Reservation.
