No, Movita Johnson-Harrell is not a jihadi. And corrupt officials of all creeds can be found more easily than anything else in this world. The reason why this story is worthy of posting at Jihad Watch is because it is another indication of the dangers of identity politics. Movita Johnson-Harrell became a state representative because she is a Muslim. She was a symbol of the Democratic Party’s commitment to “diversity.” No one knew or cared whether she would be an honest or competent state representative. In that, her story is similar to that of Mohamed Noor, who was only on the Minneapolis police force because he was a Muslim, despite numerous indications of his incompetence. A woman is dead in that case. In this one, Medicaid and Social Security disability funds were diverted into Movita Johnson-Harrell’s coffers. Why don’t we go back to supporting candidates based on their merits, not on their religion, ethnicity, race, or gender? Ohm that would be “racist”?

“Pennsylvania lawmaker charged with stealing over $500K from nonprofit she founded,” by Mark Scolforo, Associated Press, December 5, 2019:

“HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Prosecutors charged a state representative from Philadelphia on Wednesday with enriching herself by stealing money from a nonprofit organization she founded to serve the mentally ill and poor who were fighting addiction.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s office accused Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell of perjury, tampering with public records, theft and other charges. Shapiro said a plea deal was expected to be worked out.

Court papers said the theft went on for years as Johnson-Harrell converted the charity’s funds into investment properties, vacations and luxury clothing. Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell personally spent more than $500,000 from Motivations Education & Consultation Associates, diverting Medicaid and Social Security disability funds.

The 53-year-old Democrat won a special election in March in a west Philadelphia district.

Johnson-Harrell, the first female Muslim member of the House, came to office with the intensely personal story of having endured the shooting deaths of her father, brother, cousin and 18-year-old son. She campaigned on a platform of ending gun violence, and is active in an anti-gun violence foundation named for her son Charles, who was shot to death in 2011.
