Lawmaker used federal funds to pay for wedding, lavish lifestyle, feds say
Quote:A Tennessee state senator was charged with swindling $600,000 in federal funds to pay for her wedding and finance a lavish lifestyle, federal prosecutors announced Wednesday.

From 2015 to 2019, state Sen. Katrina Robinson is accused of stealing the money that was granted to The Healthcare Institute — a company she directed, according to prosecutors.

In addition to covering her wedding costs, Robinson, a Democrat from a Memphis district elected in 2018, is charged with using the funds to pay for her honeymoon and pay legal fees for her divorce, the feds charge.

With the stolen money the lawmaker also paid for her daughter’s 2016 Jeep Renegade, home improvements, a $500 Louis Vuitton handbag and invested in a snow cone business run by her children, prosecutors and the FBI said.

Robinson was charged with theft, embezzlement and wire fraud.

Despite the charges, she said she will continue to serve in the state legislature “with the same integrity, the same passion that I’ve demonstrated since you’ve elected me to this office.”

“It is believed that if I were not in the position that I’m in, that if I did not champion the voices, the views and the faces that I represent, that I would not be in this moment right now,” Robinson said.

Tennessee’s state Senate Democratic Caucus said in a statement Robinson’s legislative work “is not in question” and she “deserves the presumption of innocence and due process.”

Since its a Democrat, I'm not surprised.

"...with the same integrity, the same passion that I’ve demonstrated since you’ve elected me to this office".

So she'll steal another half mil and be rewarded for it is what she's saying.

These people are scum and the people who elected her don't care. They see it as another sister got over on the man, you go girl.

Conservatives go to jail, liberals get re-elected.
Michael Flynn? Roger Stone?
If a Republican had done what Hillary Clinton did they would be in jail for decades.

Corruption is not bipartisan. Corruption is part of the DNA of the Left.

I've yet to see a post on this forum defending something like this from a conservative. Perhaps you can direct us to one.

I love that she and the TN Dem Caucus are using the Hunter Biden “he’s a good boy” defense. Surprised she hasn’t blamed systemic racism yet. You know that one is coming.

The brass balls on these people. I guess when your voters don’t care or only vote on the basis of what the candidate looks like, you can get a little too comfortable with thinking that you may just get away with it.

I agree. If she is guilty put her away for a long long time.
