Foley’s Forgery Folly – The Official DD-214

| February 10, 2020

Yesterday Leroy Foley was sticking to his claims of a Silver Star, Two Purple Hearts and other awards of valor.   Today we have his Official Military DD-214 directly from the National Personnel Records Center.  It seems the Army has no record of his Valor awards.

This is Foley’s Forging Folly:

It appears that Foley may have filed a forged copy of his official military record with many different agencies.   This seems to be a textbook case of Stolen Valor.

    Well, who’d of guessed? Foley, you just went from turd burglar to queef.

  2. OAE CPO USN Ret says:

    Now let’s hope that they smack him hard with the Stolen Valor law book.

    Also, any bets on how big the line will be for defense attorneys that are going to jump on the pile with “Hey, this guy is a lying sack of shit. My client was busted by him and we’re raising the bullshit flag.”

  3. Combat Historian says:

    Would be interested in seeing Official DD214 for his previous 4-year enlistment as well; any chance of obtaining that document?

    • Martinjmpr says:

      I was going to ask the same thing. NDSM tells me he had service during the 1st gulf war period but no overseas ribbons or other campaign decorations make it likely that he never left CONUS.

      • sbalm says:

        Wouldn’t those and all awards be listed on the second i.e. last DD-214?

        • Combat Historian says:

          That is the way it should work, but discrepancies have occurred between different 214s from separate enlistments and mobilized tours, so I thought it was worth a look-see…

          • sbalm says:

            I have been advised that in order to get the one posted, a rabbit had to be pulled out of a hat. Now, the full-court press is for Jowers’ records. Although it is agreed it is worth a look-see, we may be out of silver bullets.

  4. Andy11M says:

    His real MOS was 11M? Damn it! I will not stand for this!

  5. Grunt says:

    And, it’s on the KTXS 5 o’clock news!

    Leroy Foley resigned from Clyde PD this afternoon.

    Great action footage of Foley refusing to answer reporters questions as he packed up his desk at PD.

    Military Phonies got a shoutout as well during the broadcast.

    More to follow!

  6. Frankie Cee says:

    It is confirmed. Both Foley and Jowers went to the same “Iwannabearanger” course, in their minds. And they have been playing “my bullshit story is better than your bullshit story”.
    I am alerting my truck driving friends that have to cross Callahan County on I-20 to be extra vigilant and to document every interaction. What a shitstory.

  7. Skippy says:

    So what happens if both have to drop out of the race ?????

    • Combat Historian says:

      Foley and Jowers are opposing each other in the Republican primary in March. If they both drop out, presumably the democrat sheriff candidate will run unopposed in the general election. Not an optimum result, but it may end up that way…

    • The Stranger says:

      Apparently, from the other thread, they are running in the Republican primary. So, if the party can’t field a candidate, the Democrat nominee would run unopposed. They have a little bit of time, but I don’t know if there are filing deadlines for these types of races. I’m of the opinion that the local Republican Party chair might want to step down after this clusterfuck.

      • Grunt says:

        There are. I was prompted to look in the other thread. With my NDSM, GCM, and clear CIF record, I’d be a crowd favorite.

        Alas, the filing deadline passed in December.

  8. ninja says:

    I think that DD214 is his SECOND (2ND) DD214.

    He had another one (Total PRIOR Active Service was 4 Years).

    He also had almost 4 Years of INACTIVE Service.

    Am thinking that His Prior Active Service was 1990-1994 for his FIRST DD214, then he got out and was Inactive from 1994 to 1998 (almost 4 years) , then Re-Joined in May 1998 and last until 2000 for about 2 years.

    No Overseas Duty credited. He had claimed 7 years.If he WAS in Bosnia, then most likely, he probably was in the TDY status with his Unit and one DOES NOT GET AN OVERSEAS CREDIT FOR THAT nor would it show up on a DD214.

    • Martinjmpr says:

      If he was in Bosnia he would have rated, at minimum, an AFEM, and the AFSM (Armed Forces Service Medal), an award that was created specifically for the Bosnia operation and AFAIK has not been awarded for any other. He would also have qualified for the NATO medal.

      However, the Bosnia operation did not start until late 1995. So if Foley was out by 1994 he would have been out for Bosnia.

      If he was in the RC during Bosnia and mobilized and deployed, he would have rated the three campaign decorations I noted above PLUS the Armed Forces Reserve Medal with M device.

      So based solely on the awards that appear on the last DD-214 (awards listed are supposed to be cumulative of ALL periods of active duty), there is no credible evidence that Foley ever served outside CONUS.

      • ninja says:

        Don’t know if he was in Bosnia…just read two comments from Folks who said that they served with him and that he was in Bosnia with them.

        He was with 1st CAV on his Second Enlistment. He was Active Duty and not RC.

        If one goes TDY, that is, is in the Box for less than 180 days, then one does not get credit for an Overseas Tour. Which means NADA on the DD214 and NADA for an Overseas Service Ribbon.

        Also, Bosnia DOES NOT rate a SSI/Combat Patch.

        • Kelley Wright says:

          That is true. We did not get a patch for Bosnia

        • Martinjmpr says:

          No on the combat patch, nor does it rate an overseas bar, but as I said above it DOES rate the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Armed Forces Service Medal and the NATO medal. If he spent at least 30 days in Bosnia he’d have rated all 3.

          I’d have to google it to be sure, but I do think the AFEM has a 30 day requirement. Not sure about the AFSM and the NATO medal.

          Bottom line, there is no indication on any genuine document that Foley ever stepped foot outside CONUS while he was in the Army.

          • Anonymous says:

            Armed Forces Service Medal (the individual deployer’s AFEM)… which they wanted to replace the AFEM with. You get one or the other (but not both for the same deployment). Having both for ’90s deployments, I know.

      • SFC D says:

        I don’t think the AFEM was authorized for Operation Joint Endeavor. IIRC, we got the AFSM and NATO medals. AFEM would not be applicable because of the creation of the AFSM.

        • Kelley Wright says:

          That went back and forth, back then it came out in messages. Veteran’s groups and Congress got involved. At the boards I had to have all of these twixs some contradicting the others. In the end, it was a one time exception to policy and you got the AFSM and the AFEM and you could wear them both. At least that was the last change I got. Not everyone got, or kept those messages.At least this was the case for the first rotation of guys with IFOR.

      • Mason says:

        There are a handful of operations that rate the AFSM. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_Forces_Service_Medal#Designated_U.S._military_operations

        AFEM was also authorized for Bosnia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_Forces_Expeditionary_Medal

        I don’t think a person can rate both for the same operation though. The distinction seems to be that the AFEM is for combat or combat support while the AFSM is for non-hostile campaign participation.

  9. Luke says:

    Guess I better tighten up my 214 to reflect my 2 weeks in BUD/S amd my 13 MOH’s. They’ll never find out…..

  10. Mustang Major says:

    I know everyone reads it plenty of times on this website, but I will type it out again: Leroy Foley appears to have a fine service record, and one that many would be proud of.

    The little bit of benefit he thinks he may have received from the bogus DD-214 have been buried 1,000 time over by the negative consequences.

    The house always wins in the stolen valor casino.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Rogo MM. This dumbass had what appeared to be perfectly honorable service on the face of this DD214. He could have just run on this and become the next High Sheriff. Any good he has ever done or will ever do has been totally negated by his lies. This will follow him in Google fame forever.

      BZ Military Phony and the ninjas of Valor Guardians. Another BZ to all of the commentators that played pile on and ran the Google Hits number up.

      And to the lying embellishing Foleys and Jowers of the world? Suck it…Bitches!

  11. ninja says:

    And look what Foley’s opponent for Sheriff, Rick Jowers, a Deputy Sheriff for Callahan County,Texas said to KTXS:

    Jower’s Full Statement

    “I have something that I would like to say to the citizens of Callahan County, I deeply and wholeheartedly apologize for misleading you about my military service. I do have discrepancies on my DD 214 from 30 years ago and I’m currently working on correcting those. The problem was this, I had a couple of tragic accidents that happened in my family that caused me to be released from the military a year early. I received an “Other Than Honorable Conditions”. I feel that that is no one‘s business but mine and my family’s. I’m not a Navy SEAL, a Green Beret, or an Airborne Ranger.”

    “I sincerely and completely apologize for saying that at the forums. I was upset and angry at a certain person, and let my emotions get the best of me. If I have offended any military or citizen I do apologize. I love my country, I love my military, and I love Callahan County.”

    “I am not and have not attempted to use my military service to sway citizens to vote for me. My military service is NOT a part of my platform as I have said many time.”

    “I feel that this is an extremely ugly race and I know that people are tired of seeing ugly things on Facebook. I pray that this will soon be over and we can all get back to our normal lives. I am not perfect and I have made many mistakes and I’ve learned from all of them. Thank you and God bless.”

      UH-OH….

      Ricky Wayne Jowers stated “I received an “Other Than Honorable Conditions”.

      According to this Site and on page 3, he was NEVER ELIGIBLE to become a LEO!

      He was a Jailer before he became a Deputy Sheriff!

      This is NOT Good!

    • Frankie Cee says:

      Yep, he is sincerely sorry that he found out that he would be caught up in the Leroy Foley exposure. If Leroy Foley hadn’t been exposed, Jowers would have just kept on trucking on, claiming SEAL, Special Forces, Ranger. He is trying desperately to unfuck himself, and anything he says now will only be to save his ass.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        ‘Tis “The best Little Stolen Valor Whorehouse of a Sheriff’s Office Race in Texas”, ain’t it?

    • Martinjmpr says:

      So the supreme irony here is that had both Jowers and Foley been truthful about their service, Foley’s career would have stood head and shoulders above Jowers’.

    • Ret_25X says:

      Sooo….he went AWOL and got caught leading to an OTH? Priceless!

      This story just keeps getting better.

  12. The Stranger says:

    This has got to be a Stolen Valor FIRST! (see what I did there?). Phony vs phony in a political campaign. Damn. I can’t fully process this. Maybe some single malt Scotch will help?

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      We take our FIRSTs where and when we can Pappy. I’m very proud of you. Don’t mix the malted beverage with the fermented beverage, don’t get stabby, put on some pants, and STAY OFF MY LAWN!

      • The Stranger says:

        Um, both the Yuengling and the Macallan are 100% malt grain bills and all alcoholic beverages are fermented. You may mean don’t mix the carbonated beverage 🍺 with the distilled beverage 🥃!

        • 5th/77th FA says:

          Yeah, that….AND the lawn thing.

          Some of the kids never could get that it was the mixers that caused the problem, not the alcohol. Watering down good whiskey is just a waste of good whiskey.

          • The Stranger says:

            If you can’t drink it neat, you need to drink something else. The only exception is Seagrams 7; that 7 and 7 is mighty tasty and I’ve never had a hangover from it.

      • The Stranger says:

        Also, I typically don’t get stabby, but I’m not averse to clocking someone across the head with my E-tool or giving a well-placed “butt stroke to the head series, move!”

    • Skippy says:

      My head is still spinning
      in fact I feel like AOC now

      BHWHAHAHAHAHA !!!!!!!

  13. Claw says:

    Okay, Forgin’ Foley is toast. Am now waiting for Rick Jowers to come clean and explain how it is “he took a bullet for his country” in Somalia (1993) four years after he received a General (Under Honorable Conditions) Discharge from the Army (1989) after serving only 1 year, 6 months and 19 days.

    I don’t think that can be fixed as a “discrepancy” on a 30 year old DD214./s

  14. Martinjmpr says:

    I’ll echo what NHSparky said in the other thread: Nobody here is really “celebrating” the self-destruction of someone’s career. No matter the circumstances, this is going to affect people other than just the guilty party (Family members, friends, etc.)

    But it’s important to note two things:

    First of all, Foley’s wounds are 100% self inflicted. Nobody MADE him create that bogus DD-214 (which likely took a number of HOURS to create.) Nobody MADE him submit it as “proof” of his military record. Nobody MADE him show a silver star and purple heart in his campaign ads. That was Foley’s doing, every bit of it.

    The second thing is, Foley was more than happy to accept the accolades and respect that his bogus credentials bought him. He was happy to bask in the glow of un-earned admiration based on lies he intentionally, and deliberately told – not once, but repeatedly. He was willing to accept the consequences of people believing his lies, so now he must be willing to accept the consequences of being found out. As the theme from “Baretta” said, “don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”

    And finally, lest someone think that Stolen Valor is a “victimless crime” and “‘cmon, who did he really hurt but making up some stories?” one might consider that Foley likely used his made-up fables of military derring-do to put himself at the top of the list when he applied for his law enforcement job. IOW, there is someone out there who submitted a truthful resume and who DIDN’T get hired because Foley’s lies made Foley look like the better candidate.

    That is a real, live victim of “stolen valor” right there.

  15. Daisy Cutter says:

    The question the media, the good folks of Callahan County, the investigators, the DA’s office and Foley’s wife should be asking is…

    WHY ARE THOSE TWO DD-214s SO DIFFERENT?

        They both claimed Ranger. A fitting punishment would be, in part, a trip to the swamps of Camp Rudder, and an OpOrder to do the Weaver. And then having them swim the Yellow River tonight would be fantastic as it is currently at flood stage and running fast as hell.

  18. ninja says:

    Shouldn’t the State of Texas and Callahan County be informed that in reality, Rick Jowers was DISQUALIFIED to be a LEO based on his confession of having an Other Than Honorable Discharge?

    Is it possible he might have submitted a Forged DD214 as well when applying to be a LEO in Texas?

    Which makes me now wonder if Foley received an OTHD as well when applying for LEO which explains his Forged DD214?

    Perhaps a hint can be dropped to the News Media that they need to investigate this as well?

    What in the fuck kinds of background checks are these agencies running down there? Every department I applied for didn’t ask for anything from me but an SF-180. No chance for me to give fraudulent documents if they just go to the source.

    With these two fuck wads on the job (well, one not any more and the other it’s only a matter of days), they really need to look into EVERYONE at these departments. One is a fluke, two is starting a pattern.

    • Steve 1371 says:

      Could the case be made Jowers was impersonating a Police officer since he did not meet the requirements?

      • Mason says:

        No, if he was licensed and employed at the time he’s not impersonating. He’s an actual cop. He doesn’t meet the qualifications to have a license though, so at a minimum TCOLE needs to yank his license. That’s administrative though.

        Presumably when he applied for his cop job(s), he didn’t disclose that he had the OTH. Vets almost always have to submit discharge paperwork when applying for government jobs. So he probably gave them a fraudulent DD-214. At a minimum, he checked a box on his job application, background packet, and/or Texas peace officer license application that said he was not a recipient of a military discharge other than honorable. That would definitely be a form of fraud.

        • Hondo says:

          Quite possibly perjury as well. Many public employee applications require the submitter to sign the form and certify, under penalty of perjury, that all information thereon is true and correct.

          Don’t know whether the doctored/forged DD214 (if submitted with his application or later) would run afoul of Texas forgery statues or not. However, it would violate 18 USC 498. So the man may have some significant legal issues ahead if local state and Federal prosecutors are vets and want to make an example of him.

          • Sparks says:

            This goes to his statement that (paraphrased) he did not use his DD-214 or military background for gain. I think he in fact did use it for gain in getting the job.

  27. ninja says:

    Folks:

    Check out Ole Ricky Wayne Jower’s EXCUSE as to why he claimed to have been an “Airborne RANGER:

    “Jowers also stated “I am not a Navy SEAL, a Green Beret, or an Airborne Ranger,” referring to an incident at a Jan. 27 forum where he said, while pointing at Foley, “We were both Airborne Rangers.”

    “Jowers says that statement was not intended to be taken seriously.”

    “(Foley) said that he was an Airborne Ranger, and I already knew he wasn’t,” Jowers said. “Basically I mocked him and said I was too. I was upset with him saying it.”

    • ninja says:

      And then Jowers said this!

      And check out what the current Sheriff said!

      “Jowers is continuing his run for sheriff.”

      “I haven’t done anything criminal,” he said.”

      “Sheriff Joy maintained his support for Jowers’ candidacy, saying the sheriff’s office was not conducting an investigation into the issue.”

      “Whatever has happened, he’s still my chief deputy, my right hand man,” Joy said. “I still have faith in him.”

      • ninja says:

        Jowers said he did not do anything CRIMINAL.

        Since he admitted he left the Army with an OTHER THAN DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE, then he was DISQUALIFIED to become a LEO in Texas.

        Since he was chosen, trained and worked as a Jailer and a Deputy Sheriff, it is obvious he did not sumbit his REAL DD214.

        Bet Ole Ricky Boy pulled the same thing as Ole Leroy, i.e. submitted an Altered DD214 to become a LEO.

        Isn’t that CRIMINAL?

      • Mason says:

        Looking at this statute, he might be able to still be elected Sheriff and not be a commissioned officer.

        https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/LG/htm/LG.85.htm

        I know some states allow the sheriff, since they are elected, to serve as managers/administrators of the agency without having the authority of a licensed cop. All my other Googling has led me to believe that Sheriffs are considered licensed, but that just might be because they always are cops first before being elected.

    Wow…..
    as I close out this evening
    It has dawned on me that I’m really F^€¥ing old. 49 to be exact I’ve almost been out of the army now 7 years, November of next year will be when the guard threw me out the window 6 years so far for them
    I honestly thought this crazy stupid shit would have ended by now. 8-9 years ago when I accidentally found
    This site I had no idea this stupid shit would still be going on let alone seeing someone I knew in my heart
    Was full of shit being on here for being a phony.
    But long story short when are people going to fucking learn
    This shit is a no-go in any lane ????
    Just when I think I’ll never see another one on here I’m wrong
    Good Night All
    Until tomorrow
    Praying for ex-ph hope all is well
    This comes from me and my family
    Out

    I was not a very good 42A, and it was a long long time ago, but even at first glance, that DD214 is so ate up. It is a wonder he did not use Comic Sans font. All these high level fakers out there, I could make a mint just cleaning up their fake DD214s, if I was a dishonest person. Now I don’t jump on the accusing stolen valor bandwagon right away. I seen a lot of people with weird careers (mine included) seen awards messed up, and also flaky stuff on DD214s. My last two DD214s have credit for Iraq, never set foot there, and I tried to tell the Army I did not cross over the border, but they are stuck there. So I know there are a lot of them out there that have real discrepancies, But this monstrosity…

    • rgr769 says:

      Yes, the fake DD214 was a world class soup sandwich. It also doesn’t say much for Foley’s detective powers of observation if he didn’t notice all the misspellings in words that are part of the blank form. Plus, how did he think he would never be challenged on any of the stuff he claimed.

        Well, he was an 11M at Fort Hood. One of my platoon leaders “back in the day” had an older brother who if I recall correctly was an Infantry Lieutenant at Fort Hood some years before Foley was there. He said some of his brother’s troops were so freaking dumb “intellectually challenged” that they were occasionally referred to as “rocks with lips”.

        Perhaps Foley was simply carrying on that tradition in the 1990s and continued with same after he left active duty. (smile)

        • rgr769 says:

          I commanded a couple of mech/airborne platoons in the 509th in Germany in ‘69-70. I would say my E5’s were not this clueless.
          Although, I had more than one PFC that was this level of stupid.

    • ninja says:

      As noted above, check out what Ole Ricky Boy said in the news article.

      Unbelievable. He is trying to deflect his False Claim of stating in Public that he was an “Airborne RANGER”. What a POOR excuse:

      “Jowers also stated “I am not a Navy SEAL, a Green Beret, or an Airborne Ranger,” referring to an incident at a Jan. 27 forum where he said, while pointing at Foley, “We were both Airborne Rangers.”

      “Jowers says that statement was not intended to be taken seriously.”

      “(Foley) said that he was an Airborne Ranger, and I already knew he wasn’t,” Jowers said. “Basically I mocked him and said I was too. I was upset with him saying it.”

      • ninja says:

        Despite being CAUGHT with his Embellishment, Ole Ricky Wayne Jowers said in the article that he will continue to run for Callahan County Texas Sheriff.

        From the article:

        “I haven’t done anything criminal,” he said.”

        Seriously? How can Ole Ricky Boy be a LEO in Texas if he received an OTHER THAN HONORABLE DISCHARGE?

        Having that Discharge is a DISQUALIFICATION to become a Texas LEO!

        • ninja says:

          Amazing.

          From the article, the current Sheriff of Callahan County Texas stated he is still supporting Ole Ricky Boy for Sheriff and that his Office was not conducting an investigation”

          “Sheriff Joy maintained his support for Jowers’ candidacy, saying the sheriff’s office was not conducting an investigation into the issue.”

          “Whatever has happened, he’s still my chief deputy, my right hand man,” Joy said. “I still have faith in him.”

          Perhaps ANOTHER Agency or even the News Media needs to conduct an investigation as to how Ricky Wayne Jowers became a Certified Texas LEO with an OTHER THAN HONORABLE DISCHARGE, a Disqualifer.

          • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

            Sounds like the Sheriff needs to resign due to his questionable judgement of character in the case of Ricky Jowers.

      • Mustang Major says:

        Looking at the Sheriff’s debate video, Jowers was not mocking Foley. In fact he initiated the conversation on military service and said that her was an airborne ranger. No mocking- just your basic lying.

        Wanna bet Ricky Jowers has been spreading BS about his military service for years? I am sure plenty of others, even in the sheriff’s department where he works, have heard his war stories for years.

        Disgusting to think that Ricky Jowers has no problem with lying, even after he is caught. Only a fool would vote for Ricky Jowers into office.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          The more I see and hear of Ricky Jowers, the more convinced I am that he’s all hat and no cattle!

    Foley resigned from the Clyde Police Dept but he can always get a job at Bass Pro Shops. Sounds like they will welcome him with open arms.

      “I received an “Other Than Honorable Conditions”. I feel that that is no one‘s business but mine and my family’s. I’m not a Navy SEAL, a Green Beret, or an Airborne Ranger.”
      No one else’s business while you’re in a LE Job? BITCH, PLEASE!!!

      “I am not and have not attempted to use my military service to sway citizens to vote for me. My military service is NOT a part of my platform as I have said many time.”
      I believe that less than I do a Used Car Salesman or politician.

      “I feel that this is an extremely ugly race and I know that people are tired of seeing ugly things on Facebook.”
      Ya reap what you sow, and in your case you sowed a lot of BULLSHIT, Pal, what are the details of your OTH Discharge? You know that Ex-LEOs get the real smooch-fest in the Greybar Hilton!

      • ninja says:

        API posted what Ricky Wayne Jowers said:

        “I received an “Other Than Honorable Conditions”. I feel that that is no one‘s business but mine and my family’s.”

        REALLY?

        IMHO, the State of Texas, Taylor and Callahan, Texas and the Callahan County Sheriff’s Office NEED to make this their Business since it looks as if Ole Ricky may have illegally obtained a Texas LEO License.

  34. Steve Balm says:

    FELLOW OFFICER TO FOLEY: I don’t mean to be insensitive, but has anyone spoken for your stapler?

    Foley gives hard blank stare.

    FELLOW OFFICER: Too soon. You’re right. Too soon.

    Gee Whiz.

    Does ANY Elected Official in Baird, Texas (Callahan County) care ANYTHING about Ricky Wayne Jowers running for Sheriff?

    • The Stranger says:

      Apparently not…

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Ricky Wayne Jowers must either know or be married into the right Family to be that deep in his local Good Ole Boy “Bubba Club”!
      I’m certain that a FOIA Records Request has already been done on Ricky Wayne Jowers, can’t wait to see what that unearths, all stocked up on Nachos and popcorn!!!

    • greenberet722 says:

      Well ninja, I’m in Taylor County and also a 30 years officer. I can certainly tell you that I along others close to here are concerned. I have been working on this, along with other veterans, from day one. We will see that justice is served in the end.

        I myself am glad to hear that, I wish a complete and total success to you and your Brethren working on this!!!

    For you guys situational awareness, I have contacted TCOLE (Texas Commission on Law Enforcement) personnel about Jowers’ peace officer license. As it was explained to me the OTH discharge must be accompanied by an intelligibility to reenlistment. Apparently you can receive an OTH for bad conduct or other factors. The bad conduct usually invokes a ban on reenlistment while other factors not related to bad conduct might allow later reenlistment once the factors have been remedied. This was recently changed in December I was told. In relation to Jowers’ case it would have to be determined by when he received his peace officers license and what rules were in place at that time. The first piece of the puzzle will be the disclosure of his entire DD 214. I hope that helps a little but I’m still working in the complete picture. From recollection I think a non-licensed sheriff can be elected but has to attain peace officer certification within two years of election. That’s from memory so don’t quote me!
