Alabama Democrat Charged in Scheme To Bilk Money From Youth Nonprofit – By Ben Wilson (Washington Free Beacon) / May 24, 2023

A Democratic state representative in Alabama is resigning his seat after he was charged with participating in a conspiracy to steal money from a nonprofit youth baseball league.

Fred Plump, a newly elected Democrat, was charged with and agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy and obstruction of justice for his role in the kickback scheme, which involved state money allocated to the nonprofit. Each charge has a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Another legislator, unnamed in the charging document for the case, received around $500,000 from the Jefferson County Community Service Fund, which directs state money to programs in Jefferson County. That representative gave $400,000 of the funds to the Piper Davis Youth Baseball League, a nonprofit that Plump oversaw as executive director. Plump then directed $200,000 of the funds back to the unnamed legislator’s assistant.
