What goes round comes round. That dreadful woman who called Michelle Obama an “ape in heels” is going to the house of many doors.
A former West Virginia official who gained notoriety after making a racist remark about former first lady Michelle Obama was sentenced to prison this week after pleading guilty to embezzling federal disaster funds.
Pamela Taylor, who served as the Clay County development director, was sentenced to 10 months in federal prison and two months of house arrest, the local U.S. attorney's office announced Thursday. She was also fined $10,000.
Taylor pleaded guilty in February to taking more than $18,000 in relief benefits meant to help people whose homes were damaged in flooding in 2016. She registered for the benefits, saying that her home was damaged. Prosecutors later said it was discovered that her home was not damaged.
“There’s no such thing as a little bit of FEMA fraud. Taylor’s fraudulent scheme took FEMA dollars away from those who needed it the most,” U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart said in a statement, referring to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Interesting how Trump supporters are not only racists and bigots, but they’re crooks as well. Birds of a feather.
