MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee state senator has been charged with stealing more than $600,000 in federal funds received by a health care company she directed and using the money to pay for her wedding and other personal expenses, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
From 2015 through 2019, Robinson stole more than $600,000 and used it to pay for her wedding and honeymoon, a 2016 Jeep Renegade for her daughter, travel and entertainment for her family, and an event for her state Senate campaign, prosecutors said.

She also used the money to pay for legal fees for her divorce, home improvements and a snow cone business operated by her children, prosecutors said.

The FBI searched the school and her home in February. FBI agents visited her home again on Tuesday, FBI spokesman Joel Siscovic said.

If convicted, Robinson faces a possible sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison. Robinson would be up for re-election in 2022.

I really hate to admit this but seeing the headline on this I knew the "persuasion" of this person before I even scrolled down to her picture. Sad! I suspect nothing will happen because the law can't be made to look as though they go after such people.

Bronco and scuba,

It was a pretty sure bet what she looked like. And then, based on what she did and what she looks like, a pretty safe bet on her party affiliation.

These dumbasses are too stupid to take bribes and shady investments in a way to not be caught, like all the other politicians.
They just ham fistedly steal shit.
But they can’t help themselves.

Prosecuting her is Racist. That's the reason so many black folk and Dems go to prison.

The difference between Katrina and the rest of the DC turds is that she was sloppy enough to get caught.

Graft and theft is a way of living in DC. Only the dumb ones get caught.
