According to the indictment filed in federal court, Katrina Robinson, a 39-year-old state level Senator of the Democrat persuasion, skimmed around $600,000 from The Healthcare Institute, a company which listed her as a director on paper. She’s looking at a sentence of up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine.
The “institute” raked in a cool $2.2 million taxpayer dollars in federal grants. Most of that financed Robinson’s lavish lifestyle. Her family made out like bandits too, because “Robinson used a large portion of the money for personal purchases for herself and her family in violation of the term of the grant.” The Senator paid more than $2k for supplies so her kids could run a snow-cone stand.
