A Democrat committing campaign fraud this isn’t too surprising.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren who has been in the spotlight since BLM groups took over the city of Rochester has been indicted on two felony campaign finance charges according to Sandra Doorly the Monroe County District Attorney.
She has been charged with ‘scheme to defraud’ in the 1st degree and violation of election law.
This just adds fuel to the fire after the city was attacked by Antifa and BLM rioters after 41-year-old Daniel Prude died from asphyxiation under police custody.

USA Today covered the emerging tory and added these details:
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren has been indicted on two felony campaign finance charges, Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley announced Friday.
The first charge is for first-degree scheme to defraud; the second is an election law offense for illegally coordinating activities and expenditures.
The grand jury indictment is connected to Warren’s 2017 mayoral re-election campaign. Warren has adamantly refused any wrongdoing in the matter.
Warren will be arraigned at 4 p.m. Oct. 5 in front of Cayuga County Judge Thomas Leone. She did not provide immediate comment Friday.
If convicted of the felony charges, Warren would be removed from office under state law. The maximum sentence would be 16 months to four years in prison. While Warren would be unlikely to be incarcerated, her pension could be forfeited if the matter is determined to be a crime related to public office, and she also could lose her law license.

The New York Times stayed busy and had this to report:
Lovely Warren, the Rochester, N.Y., mayor whose leadership has come under attack after her administration mishandled the death of a Black man who had been placed in a hood by the police, was indicted on Friday on two unrelated felony campaign finance charges.
The two-page indictment charges Ms. Warren, a Democrat, and two associates with two campaign finance violations related to when she was running for a second term in 2017.
Sandra Doorley, the Monroe County district attorney, said Ms. Warren participated in “a scheme to defraud” related to her official campaign fund and a political action committee working to help her get re-elected.
The indictment accused Ms. Warren, as well as her campaign treasurer and Rochester’s finance director, of “knowingly and willfully” working to evade contribution limits as well as engaging in “a systemic and ongoing course of conduct with the intent to defraud more than one person.”
Under the Mayor’s watch, violent riots erupted in the city in September and May.

Lovely Warren should just resign and save the people of Rochester tax dollars with a long drawn out court case
