The root problem of Liberalism summed up in a single headline.
Liberals wrap themselves in a mantle of being ‘champions of the little guy’. But they insist on being judged by their promises and intentions, never their actual results.
For so many, the mantle they wrap themselves in is nothing more than the platitudes you need to mouth en route to a life of power and privilege.
This Dem seems to be no exception to that trend.
Innocent until proven guilty being acknowledged, the allegations against her are pretty horrific.
A Pennsylvania lawmaker accused of bilking a charity she founded out of more than $500,000 announced Thursday she was resigning.
Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, D-Philadelphia, told House Speaker Mike Turzai in a letter that her resignation will take effect on Dec. 13, adding that she disputes many of the allegations against her.
She said she is resigning in part to focus on her criminal defense, adding that she takes responsibility for “some missteps” she made before she was elected.
…Johnson-Harrell is alleged to have taken money from the charity, Motivations Education & Consultation Associates, diverting Medicaid and Social Security disability funds for her own use. The charity is designed to help people with mental illness, intellectual disabilities, substance abuse problems and other challenges.
Prosecutors claim she spent the charity’s money on designer clothing, multiple fox coats, payments on a Porsche, tuition for a relative and travel to Mexico and Florida.
She is charged with theft, perjury, records tampering and other offenses. She was arraigned Wednesday and released on $50,000 unsecured bail, with a preliminary hearing set for Dec. 18.
Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, said Wednesday Johnson-Harrell engaged in systematic corruption and lied for years to cover it up.
Ok, so let’s get this clear.
She admits to ‘some missteps’ — whatever that might mean.
The accusations are that she fleeced a charity out of government funds that were SUPPOSED to support people with disabilities and substance abuse issues… and she used that money for a luxury lifestyle?
The Democrats love to trot out those verses in Matthew 25 when it suits them the ones where Jesus says I was hungry and you fed me, naked and you clothed me… whenever you did it for the least of these you did it unto me.
Where are these same Democrats denouncing one of their own when a charity set up expressly for ‘the least of these’ is being used (allegedly) as a private slush fund for a Porshe, fur coats, and all the rest?
