Dem Lawmaker Resigns In Disgrace After Stealing Half A Million From Non-Profit, Faces Jail Time

She’s a Democrat. She’s a Muslim. And now, she’s a disgraced liberal politician who will resign from office after less than one year on the job after being caught stealing. Not exactly the best look! Here’s what’s up, via Philadelphia Inquirer:

HARRISBURG — State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, a West Philadelphia Democrat, said Wednesday that she would resign after prosecutors charged her with stealing more than $500,000 from her own nonprofit and spending it on family vacations, designer clothing, furs, personal bills — and her bid for the legislature.

State Attorney General Josh Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell engaged in “brazen corruption” and systematically tried to cover up her crimes by falsifying records and financial statements.

Despite making clear that she would resign, the liberal said, “I am saddened and dismayed by the nature of the allegations brought against me today. I vigorously dispute many of these allegations, which generally pertain to before I took office, and I intend to accept responsibility for any actions that were inappropriate.

The force is not strong with Ilhan Omar. You could hold up four fingers right to her face and she’d still argue that there are only two or three. That’s because Democrats love to argue and cause division, above all else.

Take the Katie Hill sex scandal, for example. The 32-year-old freshman lawmaker resigned from office in disgrace after being caught having an affair with multiple staffers. Hill’s downfall was clearly because of Hill. Omar doesn’t see it that way.

According to the fellow freshman Democrat, Hill was the victim of a “smear campaign.” I mean…are ya thick!? What planet do these lefties live on because most times it’s not earth.

Best of luck on your new journey @KatieHill4CA, we got you ✊🏽

To all the women/girls out there, do not be deterred from pursuing your dreams. We must and will create a society where you cannot be defamed, smeared and kept from your career aspirations because of smear campaigns!

You condone her behavior? Not surprised….

Also to all the young girls. Be sure to grow up knowing that you are responsible and accountable for your actions. Don’t blame the world/others for your bad decisions.

It’s not a smear campaign if she disgraces herself. #truth

Smear campaign, or ethical misconduct?
