In 2011, the campaign's one-time treasurer, Andrew McCrosson, pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $450,000 from LoBiondo's campaign accounts. McCrosson was sentenced to 30 months in jail and ordered to pay $458,000 in restitution.
Ten years later, FEC records show that the 70-year-old McCrosson has repaid at least $193,000. Last quarter he made monthly payments of $800. McCrosson and his attorney did not respond to requests for comment.


Sad that embezzlement repayment terms feel less onerous than student loans.

Crime pays if you can hire a legion of lawyers to make prosecution harder.

Crime pays if you have your occupation legalized so your marks can't have you arrested or stopped legally

We will never have justice in this country until we get money out of the legal system. If being richer means you can hire better--and more--lawyers, we have an inherently unequal legal system.

If we make them all live on the same paltry average of $140k/year, they'll have to incentive to be good lawyers and will all transfer to cushy Amazon packaging jobs.

Crime pays if you're the 45th president of the united states and his immediate family, whether you're alive or dead.

...that is all...

The obvious solution is to kill all the lawyers.....

Crime paid for the campus cop embezzling $250k/ year from my college parking meters. For at least seven years. Sentenced to 18 months he was out in less than a year, and is receiving a pension of $140k/ year from the same college

People have said to me, Well why shouldn't he collect his pension, he earned it.

In America crime has always had a very good chance to pay off for the rich. Just look at the big financial orgs like Goldman Sachs that get busted breaking the law over and over - and their "penalty" is usually far less than they made in profit fromthe crime. The big exception to the rule (kinda) is when the rich steal from other rich. America will fark you up for that.

But stealing from the poor/working class is an America tradition. That's why the most common form of theft in America - by a large margin - is wage theft.
