    We're going to have to quit electing democrats. We can't afford the prison space.

    She and her friend(s) stole a lot more than $250,000.00...that was the amount they found receipts for!

    Either way 7 years for $250,000.00 that's $35,700.00 per year with full bennies, TAX FREE...

    Plus, I'll give her less than a year and she'll be back "in the fold" and running with the DEMOCRAT crowd that spawned her!
