New Erie Co. law cracks down on veteran impersonation
BUFFALO, N.Y. – New legislation in Erie County called the “Theft of Valor” law aims to crack down on and criminally prosecute people who impersonate veterans.
County Legislator Edward Rath proposed the Theft of Valor law and the proposal passed unanimously on Thursday. The legislature’s hope is that it will be signed by county executive Mark Poloncarz in time for Veterans Day, which is next Saturday, Nov. 11.
