Ex-assemblywoman pleads guilty to FEMA fraud, - cover up

Posted: Oct 7th, 2018 - 1:15 pm

A former Brooklyn Assemblywoman pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges ​that she stole Superstorm Sandy funds ​and then told family members to lie to the FBI to cover up her misdeeds.​

Crooked ex-pol Pamela Harris admitted Tuesday that between 2012 and 2014 she defrauded FEMA out of almost $25,000 by claiming the devastating storm had made her home uninhabitable.

Harris submitted fake lease agreements to the disaster agency in order to line her pockets, prosecutors said. She then spe​​nt the money on lavish digs, ritzy vacations and lingerie.

Between 2015 and 2017, as she was serving in the Assembly, she stole not-for-profit money she’d been tasked with spending on rental spaces.

“I didn’t return the funds as required,” she confessed Tuesday to Judge Robert Levy, choking up as she admitted her guilt.

The disgraced Democrat also admitted she’d told family members to lie to FBI agents investigating her dirty dealings. Harris faces up to 30 years behind bars when sentenced.

“Elected by the people of her district to serve with honesty and integrity, Pamela Harris defrauded government programs out of tens of thousands of dollars, using the money for her personal benefit,” United States Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement.

“Harris stole grant money allocated for underprivileged children and young adults and lied to obtain funds set aside for those displaced by Hurricane Sandy, committing these crimes both before and after she was elected to serve in the New York State Assembly,” Donoghue concluded.

She’s due back in court Sept. 26.
