A South Carolina councilwoman indicted on public corruption charges allegedly used taxpayer money to “stalk” NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, the Columbia Post and Courier reported.
Richland County Council Vice Chairwoman Dahli Myers allegedly used government money to fund personal trips and spending sprees. The 24-count indictment was issued late Thursday and Myers was released without bond after a short hearing on Friday.
Myers allegedly went on spending sprees at big box stores and bought premium chocolates, repairs to her personal phone and car, gifts for friends and even a strategy book to play Fortnite, a popular online game.
The 24 counts include those for misconduct in office, using her government position for personal gain, embezzlement, writing a fraudulent check and misusing her campaign money for personal expenses.
