NEW ORLEANS — State Fire Marshal Butch Browning retired Tuesday, but there a lot is more to Browning’s sudden departure than what was officially announced.

“There’s nothing more disgraceful than trying to present yourself as someone who served in the military when you didn’t it,” said Rep. Steve Scalise, R-New Orleans.

When we caught up with Scalise last week, he did not mince words about the Stolen Valor Act, a federal law that prohibits anyone from wearing military commendations they didn’t earn.
