Muslim PA state rep who was offended by Christian prayer is charged with stealing from children’s charity

A Muslim Pennsylvania state lawmaker has been charged for allegedly stealing half a million dollars from a charity she founded.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement Thursday that Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell (D) had been charged with numerous charges of theft, perjury, and tampering.

Johnson-Harrell had previously made headlines for being offended by a Christian prayer offered before a session of the Pennsylvania Legislature in March.

Shapiro said that she had stolen money from Motivations Education & Consultation Associates, or MECA, a charity meant to collect donations to help the homeless, seniors and children.

He alleged that she spent the money on “vacations, designer clothing, luxury car payments, real estate purchases, past-due mortgage payments, and other personal expenses.”

Shapiro said in the statement that she had turned herself in, had confessed to the crimes, and had agreed to leave the Pennsylvania Legislature.

“Her theft knew no bounds,” he said.

Later, in a statement released through her lawyers to the Associated Press, she said she disputed some the charges.

“I am saddened and dismayed by the nature of the allegations brought against me today,” Johnson-Harrell said.

“I vigorously dispute many of these allegations, which generally pertain to before I took office and I intend to accept responsibility for any actions that were inappropriate,” she added.

Johnson-Harrell had founded MECA in 2006.

She had been the first Muslim representative elected to the Pennsylvania Legislature.

  1. All Muslims in any office must be removed! They have no place in our government or society because their allegiance will never be to the United States. They are forbidden by their quran to do so. Their real intent is to take over the US under the foolish stupidity of the left wing by demanding more and more consessions to islam. They are in stage 2 and 3 now where they are to infiltrate the government to change polices and attitudes to grant them more power. They have infiltrated local governments and media to gain support. All this was exposed last year when a raid on a muslim enclave uncovered a 30 year plan to take over the country.

  2. How often are people chosen to represent their government because they are like and not “most qualified”, only to turn around and abuse their office. Americans have got to start choosing the “best qualified” candidate. I agree that Muslims will never place their allegiance to the United States before ALLAH.

  4. POS BITCH!!! Why is the scum still in office??? I read about her last year! Ignorant stupid people vote people in office doing no research or even caring to know even about their past or affiliations. Thus the problem we have now with a bunch of politicians with their allegiance to China, like Joe Biden!!!

  5. You put her in office! Live with it P.A.. This is your kind of people, show you are not a racist elect any street dog in office to make yourselves feel better. It is a shame P.A is in America they are a sorry joke of a people!
