Another Bannon Associate is Sentenced to 4 Years in Prison for "Build the Wall" Scam

An ex-associate of Steve Bannon was sentenced Wednesday to more than four years in prison for ripping off donors of a US-Mexico border wall fundraising campaign — and blowing the cash on lavish personal expenses.

Brian Kolfage, 41, embezzled more than $350,000 in donor funds to the “We Build the Wall” campaign that he spent on boat payments, cosmetic procedures and jewelry, federal prosecutors said.

Kolfage — an Air Force veteran who lost his legs and his right hand in a 2004 rocket attack in Iraq — previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud related to the border wall campaign.

A co-defendant, financier Andrew Badolato, 58, also a Bannon associate, was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to the same charge.

At his sentencing in Manhattan federal court Wednesday, Kolfage told the judge he was “remorseful, disgusted, humiliated.”
