She disgraced Democrat didn’t even last a whole year!
Philadelphia state lawmaker Movita Johnson-Harell was charged for stealing more than $500,00 to pay for lavish vacations, designer clothing, furs, personal bills, and fund her campaign for state legislature.
She stole the money from her own non-profit!
According to a news report by The Philadelphia Inquirer:
“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.
“Her theft knew no bounds,” Shapiro said as he announced that his office had charged the first-term lawmaker with theft, perjury, tampering with public records, and related crimes Wednesday morning.
Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell would plead guilty to charges and faces jail time. “There will be a guilty plea that will be worked out, and you will see the details of that soon,” he said.

The shamed lawmaker made a statement through her attorney saying,
“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 people of Philadelphia deserve better. Shame on you Movita Johnson-Harrell!
