WASHINGTON D.C. (AFP) — The U.S. Justice Department filed a formal complaint Tuesday against Lance Armstrong, saying the doping-disgraced cyclist and team owners defrauded the U.S. Postal Service of sponsorship money.
Elliot Peters, Armstrong’s attorney, disputed whether the USPS suffered any damage as a result of its 1998-2004 sponsorship of the team.
“The DOJ’s complaint against Lance Armstrong is opportunistic and insincere,” Peters said in a statement sent to AFP. “The U.S. Postal Service benefited tremendously from its sponsorship of the cycling team. Its own studies repeatedly and conclusively prove this. The USPS was never the victim of fraud.
Poor poor USPS was defrauded by Lance. Why, they had NO IDEA that top bike racers used performance enhancing drugs when they signed up for this thing. Total blindside.
