First Muslim Woman Elected to Pennsylvania Legislature Resigns

“[B]razen corruption… her theft knew no bounds.”

(Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’)


Movita Johnson-Harrell has been charged (and plead guilty!) in a massive fraud scheme involving embezzlement from Medicare and Medicaid, charity fraud, and other assorted fraudulent schemes.

Although the story did get a fair amount of media coverage, I hadn’t heard about it until a reader, Judy, alerted me to a detailed article at American Thinker entitled:

CAIR Pennsylvania Poster Girl Resigns in Shame

Pals Movita Johnson-Harrell and Rep. Ilhan Omar gather in Washington DC at ‘Black women in defense of Ilhan’ rally.

Movita Johnson-Harrell seemed to take pride in her position as the first Muslim woman elected to the Pennsylvania State Legislature. Now that record will forever have an asterisk next to it as Johnson-Harrell has turned herself in to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s Office, pleading guilty on charges of perjury, record tampering, and embezzling over $500,000 in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds, as well as donations to Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she established to allegedly serve the mentally ill and drug addicted poor in her predominately African-American neighborhood.

In a press conference, Attorney General Shapiro described Johnson-Harrell’s actions as “brazen corruption… her theft knew no bounds.” Johnson-Harrell stole funds that personally belonged to the residents of her facilities and used it to purchase fox furs, trips to Mexico, to make payments on a Porsche, pay delinquent utility bills, cover her granddaughter’s private school tuition and even fund her political campaign. After the facility, where residents were living in squalor, was closed, Johnson-Harrell continued collecting their rent from MECA even though the facilities were no longer operating.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Johnson-Harrell’s dereliction of duty extended to her short time as a Pennsylvania state representative.

During her brief period in office, Johnson-Harrell seemed to spend the majority of her time celebrating herself as the first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature, and helping to fundraise and advocate for the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

This event happened only in October of this year. If you can stand it go here to watch her talk about herself.


Two months after being in office Johnson Harrell flew across the country to Washington State to stand with anti-Israel BDS supporter Congresswoman Ilhan Omar at a CAIR fundraiser with a separatist theme “Muslim Power for 2020 & Beyond.”

There is much more here (including many links).

Author Leonard Getz has done a lot of work on this piece, so please visit for more of the disgusting news.

I’m joking, but because I see so many stories,  I do wonder if there are Muslim training programs that teach their followers how to scam the infidels through Medicare and Medicaid fraud, Food Stamp fraud and the all-too-common Day Care Fraud.

With how far Left Pennsylvania is moving, I’m actually surprised the Attorney General would go after a Muslim ‘rising star.’

Gives us all hope!

Don’t forget to visit Refugee Resettlement Watch as the refugee program is again on front pages of newspapers across the country forcing me to spend more time there then here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’

LOL!  However, there is some crossover between my blogs!

Just as I was wrapping up I came across this (below)!  Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf was the first governor in the US to tell the President to send the state more impoverished refugees for the state’s taxpayers to take care of.

  1. Gov Wolf ought to be ashamed to have publicly praised her. Moving his state forward? Moving his state into spending taxpayers money to convict and imprison her for who knows how long? This story makes me sick to my stomach. I could not read it all. CAIR should be ashamed to have had her at their conference. But it is all about ‘Muslim Power’. How come regular citizens do not believe their eyes and ears? They do want Muslim Supremacy. It is not about their race it is about their Religion. It is ok to deceive infidels, ok to rob and steal from us. Read the Koran.

  2. Just as important to know is Movita’s party affiliation. She is a Democrat. She is also American, as far as I can ascertain.

  3. The legislator that Movita succeeded in office was also a crooked Democrat. “Vanessa Lowery Brown is a former Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, representing District 190 from 2009 to 2018. She resigned December 11, 2018.[1]

    On October 31, 2018, Lowery Brown was convicted of bribery, conflict of interest, and failing to properly file a financial disclosure form.[2]”


    “Conviction for bribery, conflict of interest
    Lowery Brown, former state Rep. Harold James (D), former state Rep. Ronald Waters (D), former state Rep. Louise Williams Bishop (D) and former state Rep. Michelle Brownlee (D) were charged with bribery and conflict of interest as part of a pay-to-play sting that the state Attorney General’s office launched in 2010.[3]

    On October 31, 2018, Lowery Brown was convicted of bribery, conflict of interest, and failing to properly file a financial disclosure form. The jury found Lowery Brown guilty of accepting $4,000 from an undercover informant.[2]

    Following her conviction, Lowery Brown refused to resign from the legislature. Neil Lesher, legislative and policy director for House Speaker Mike Turzai (R), however, said “her tenure in the General Assembly ended with her sentencing” on November 30.[4]

    Lowery Brown resigned December 11.[1]

  4. Does she get a slap on the wrist or some real jail time? Let’s hear the outcome!

  5. Movita? What a perfect name for an embezzler! Well, maybe Sorosita would be even a better one…

  6. I hope she does the full prison time rightfully associated with her crimes, with no ethnic or religious discount or accommodation.

  7. Cop’s conviction, Omar rise highlight Minnesota news in 2019
    By JEFF BAENEN Associated Press DECEMBER 23, 2019 — 12:05AM
    MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota saw it’s share of notable news events in 2019. Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor was convicted in the shooting death of a civilian — a rarity for a police officer. U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s rise to prominence continued as the new Minnesota congresswoman found herself a frequent target and foil of President Donald Trump. And a man inexplicably approached a 5-year-old boy and threw him from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America.

    Here’s a rundown of Minnesota’s top stories of the year:

  8. This lady was removed because she was too sloppy and brazen a criminal and therefore a threat to the other political fraudsters . She was giving the game away. It’s corruption damage control. You’re not suppose to openly wallow in furs and trips when there are millions to steal over time. Amateur.
