Occasionally, they nail one or two - Democrat fraud

| No Comments

I guess if the fraud is so egregious and so public, they have to arrest the perp.
From Cincinnati, Ohio station WCPO:

Three local women, including ex-mayoral hopeful Kelli Prather, charged with PPP fraud
Three Cincinnati women, including former mayoral hopeful Kelli Prather, received hundreds of thousands of dollars from federal pandemic relief funds after lying in their applications, according to federal prosecutors.

Prather, 48; Toni Wright, 34; and Melissa McGhee, 37, each stand charged with bank fraud in connection to their loan applications and could be sentenced to over 30 years in prison.

Prather applied for six Paycheck Protection Program loans — one for each of the six businesses she claimed to own: Enhanced Healthcare Solutions, Life Skills Enhancement, Prather Property Management, Reliable Ambulette Services, Rich Glo Management Services and Tots R Us.

She asked for $600,000 but only received $19,800, according to prosecutors.

According to court documents, Prather spent more than $8,000 on non-business expenses, at places like Kroger, Staples, Krispy Kreme, AAA Car Wash, and Park Place restaurant in Forest Park.

An ex-boyfriend told special agents Prather gave him a check for $8,000 for payment on a Madisonville house she bought previously then put in his name. It needed serious work and was not conducive to housing a business, he told investigators. The Kenwood Road address was used on the loan application for some of Prather's businesses.

Prather stands charged with bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, making false statements, making false statements in connection to credit or loan applications and false representation of a social security number.

And of course, that old reliable standby:

WCPO reached out to Prather for comment on Tuesday but did not hear back.

I am surprised that they are talking about 30 years.  Of course, being a member of the old boy's club, she will get a slap on the wrist and drop out of public view for a few months but still...

The full complaint (16 pages) can be found here: United States of America v. Kelli Prather
