Maryland Democrat Stole Money to Pay for Wedding Expenses

Well, I suppose the upside here is she wasn't redistributing taxpayers money. She just helped herself to it.
A state lawmaker who was a central figure this year in the drama over whether Maryland would approve same-sex marriage was charged Friday with stealing campaign funds to pay for her wedding.

Charges brought by the Office of the Maryland State Prosecutor allege that Del. Tiffany T. Alston (D-Prince George’s) spent thousands of dollars of campaign contributions to pay for wedding expenses and for the salary of an employee in her law firm.

In several instances, Alston wrote herself checks from the account of “Friends of Tiffany Alston” and then cashed the checks for personal use, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Alston is charged with one count of felony theft, one count of misdemeanor theft, one count of fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary and two election law violations.

The felony theft charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum 18-month sentence and fine of $500.
Ironically she has a degree in criminal justice.

Since she is a Dumbocrap, not only will she NOT do a day in jail, but she will be promoted to CZAR on Obama's advisory board to teach "How  To Steal The Taxpayers Money And Spend It On Yourself"   Eric Holder will ask her to be his chief prosecutor on cases of whites who were arrested for stealing food..
