Former Ted Kennedy Staffer Convicted Of Stealing Senate Funds
Sen. Edward Kennedy’s (D-Mass.) former office manager was convicted on Tuesday of stealing more than $75,000 from the Senate.
Ngozi Pole was found guilty on five counts of wire fraud and one count of theft of government property. For at least 4 years, Pole submitted fraudulent paperwork that caused the Senate to pay him larger bonus payments than either Kennedy or his chief of staff had approved, according to the Justice Department.
Pole tried to hide the paper trail of these unauthorized payments by “repeatedly transmitting information to the chief of staff that falsely showed that he received only those payments that had been authorized.”
Is anyone really shocked to find a dishonest man working for the Hero of Chappaquiddick?
