Kendall Myers

"We believe that in this case of Kendall Myers, the severe punishment was warranted by the nature of his crime. This was a serious breach of national security. And by committing acts of espionage, he grievously violated the confidence placed in him by the Department of State and the American people."
-Philip J. Crowley, Assistant Secretary, Department of State

Walter Kendall Myers, a.k.a. Kendall Myers, was arrested in June 2009 with his wife Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers after having spied for Cuba for almost thirty years. In November 2009, Kendall Myers pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit espionage. Gwendolyn Myers pleaded guilty to conspiracy to gather and transmit national defense information. In July 2010, they were sentenced to life without parole and 81 months respectively.

This poster cites Kendall Myers himself explaining one of the ways he obtained information to pass to Cuba, and shows the penalty he will pay for doing so.
