Washington (CNN) - A former office manager for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy was indicted Tuesday for allegedly pocketing more than $75,000 in excess pay. A federal grand jury indicted Ngozi Pole, 39, of Waldorf, Maryland, for submitting paperwork that prompted the Senate to pay him more than he was supposed to receive.
A six-count indictment says Pole transmitted information to the Senate Disbursing Office that caused overpayments to him from 2003 to 2007.
Each of five counts of wire fraud lodged against Pole carry up to 20 years in prison. The count of theft of government property carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
I'm glad Senator Kennedy is no longer with us so he doesn't have to witness this. This guy should be ashamed of himself, and I hope they throw the book at him.
So there was a mouse in the Lion of the Senate's den.
Gosh he worked for a democrat so it must be the presidents fault. Like the guy who commented that Obama made him loose his job. How long before the repos jump on this and want a full investigation . Can not believe the nut jobs comming out of the wood work to protest today in DC. Rightwing southern wingnuts.
Stealing from another thief is a crime?
I knew this guy, and he was a jerk. Jerk's don't deserve to go to prison, but if the allegations are true, then he sure deserves it.
Throw the book at him. Put him in that Prison in Illinois, and send Bush and Cheney there also.
Maybe Cheney can waterboard all of them and get the truth. (Maybe Cheney can get waterboarded – turn about being fair play).
A Democrat stealing taxpayer money. This is a shock and news?
Just another typical Lib, corrupt to the core.
New poll shows Michelle Obama's stock is on the rise . . .
Yup! Teeny-tiny cleavage in EVERY photo - and nothing more! What a nutcase she is!
I suppose he thought that since it was " government" money, it was alright to have some extra pay. Such behaviour seemed to match what he saw in Congress.
Nothing suprises me about the Kennedys are any of their helpers. After all this is one more corrupt family that the American people call their royalty. It doesn't take much to pacify a bunch of morons.
He learned well from the ol' master. :-)
What, corruption in the Kennedy camp? Say it ain't so....
its a Democrate, so he wont do any time. If you dont believe me look who runs the country, a bunch of tax cheats, a bunch of wanna be dictators in Congress and a lier in the white house, so we know he wont do time.
you voted for Ted and now his buddies are stealing your tax dollars.....love it.
Subject him to the full force of the legal system (OH, I'm a DEMOCRAT).
I hope that Pole enjoyed all that money over the last 5 years.
I also hope that he gets nailed to the wall so that he can serve as an example to all others. I think 20 years in prison sounds about right.
Pkm i hope he is another losser
