Democrat Politician Caught Funding Lavish Lifestyle With Taxpayer Dollars

A Democratic state senator in Tennessee has been charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funds in order to pay for a wedding and other personal expenses.

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday announced charges against Tennessee state Sen. Katrina Robinson, accusing her of stealing money from a company she directed over a period of four years.

WHBQ-TV in Memphis reported that from 2015 to 2019, according to a complaint, Robinson took in excess of $600,000 from the Healthcare Institute, which provides health care vocational training.

Robinson’s institute received $2.2 million in federal grants from the Health Resources and Services Administration during that time.

The Justice Department said Robinson stole nearly a quarter of it.

The state senator, according to federal authorities, used the stolen money for herself and her family.

In addition to paying for her wedding, Robinson allegedly also paid for her honeymoon and subsequent divorce with funds that were allegedly embezzled from the Healthcare Institute.

She is further accused of using the money to buy a snow-cone shack, pay off personal loans and fund improvements to her home.

The senator also allegedly paid for a campaign event with embezzled federal funds.

Robinson is charged with theft, embezzlement and wire fraud.

If convicted, she could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

I think Biden just found the candidate for his VP slit...

And, yes, I spelled it the way I meant it.

Re:  Democrat Politician Caught Funding Lavish Lifestyle With Taxpayer Dollars.

1.   "Robinson took in excess of $600,000 from the Healthcare Institute."

2.  "If convicted, she could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine."

3.   She stole over $600,000.00 but may wind up paying on $250,000.00?  Why?

4.   I would be demanding full restitution!!!  She stole the money from you and me, the American taxpayer!

5.   I am sick of these thieves stealing enormous amounts of money and not making full restitution!  The money they steal belongs to me and you, the American taxpayer!  I think if full restitution is required maybe some of these thieves won't steal the money!
