Seems like every week a corrupt Democrat is arrested and charged for breaking the law.
And the streak continued this week after a Democrat lawmaker and her daughter were accused of stealing campaign money and using it for personal use.
Former Maryland state lawmaker Tawanna Gaines and her daughter, Anitra Edmond, who served as the campaign treasurer for her mother, have both been charged with federal wire fraud.
If convicted, both could face up to 3 years in federal prison for their despicable crimes of stealing campaign donations from taxpayers to live lavish lifestyles.
Gaines, 67, resigned from the House of Delegates earlier this month after she was accused of misusing campaign funds. She had served in the House of Delegates since 2001.
The former lawmaker admitted to spending $22,000 in campaign donations on personal expenses, including an Amazon Fire TV Stick, a cover for her swimming pool, hair appointments, and dental work.
Edmond, 43, was the treasurer of “Friends of Tawanna P. Gaines,” the Prince George’s County Democrat’s campaign committee, since 2005, according to a court filing.
The court documents do not detail how Edmond allegedly spent the funds she is accused of taking for her personal use.
The government plans to require her to forfeit at least $35,000 if she is convicted.
Gaines faces eight to 33 months in prison as part of her plea deal and is required to pay $22,500 in restitution.
Seems like corrupt Democrats have been charged and arrested a lot lately.
