The U.S. House of Representatives Thursday overwhelmingly passed a new version of the Stolen Valor Act, a bill aimed at people who lie about receiving military medals and then attempt to profit from the deception.The bill focuses not on people who lie about having medals they didn’t earn, but on any profits they make from lying about the medals, which is essentially criminal fraud.
