Movita Johnson-Harrell was a trailblazer, an icon, and a hero for equality for becoming the first Muslim female elected to the Pennsylvania State House earlier this year.
Now, she is disgraced, unemployed, and may face jail time after being forced to resign from her post following “brazen corruption,” as described by state Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
Johnson-Harrell handed herself over to Shapiro’s office and pleaded guilty on charges of embezzling over $500,000 in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds as well as record tampering and perjury charges. She even embezzled funds given to the Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she created to help drug addicted and mentally ill minorities in her community.
Shapiro explained that “her theft knew no bounds.” Johnson-Harrell bought lavish fox furs, leased a Porsche, covered her utility bills, paid for her granddaughter to go to a private school, traveled to Mexico, and bankrolled her political campaign.
While Johnson-Harrell was in office, she raised funds for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). She appeared at an CAIR fundraiser in Washington State next to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) titled “Muslim Power for 2020 & Beyond.”
“I was tired of people who look like me not protecting people who look like me… I got here by divine intervention, I’m going to leave by divine intervention. I have been obedient to Allah,” Johnson-Harrell said during a CAIR event in November.
Following her arrest, Johnson-Harrell unsurprisingly played the victim.
“My life is one of service. If I have to suffer persecution to save one from the grave then God’s will, not mine be done,” she wrote in a social media post.
The left-wing diversity cult that promoted this disreputable woman into an undeserved position of authority based solely on her victim status has a lot of egg on their face in lieu of her scandalous actions.

“Everytown applauds Ms. Johnson-Harrell on her victory, and we’re eager to partner with her to achieve our shared goal: passing common-sense gun safety laws,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety.
“Last year, we saw unprecedented numbers of Moms Demand Action volunteers run for office and win,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “I am delighted that Movita Johnson-Harrell has joined their ranks and is adding ‘lawmaker’ to her portfolio of gun safety activism.”
The special election to replace Johnson-Harrell will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Minneapolis Mayor Says It is ‘Weakness’ Causing Trump to Blame Him for Crisis…After Softening Police Force Prior to Riots
The soy boy mayor is a real hypocrite.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) fired back at President Donald Trump after Trump suggested that his weak leadership was hurting the city.
“Let me say this, weakness is refusing to take responsibility for your own actions. Weakness is pointing your finger at somebody else during a time of crisis. Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis,” Frey said to reporters on Friday.
“We are strong as hell. Is this a difficult time period? Yes, but you better be damned sure that we’re going to get through this,” Frey added.
Frey was responding to Trump’s Twitter post in which he stated: “Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.”
Frey’s comments can be seen here:
"Weakness is pointing your finger at somebody else, during a time of crisis. Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis."

However, Frey worked to make changes with police shortly before the crisis because he was concerned about political correctness.
Frey announced he would end all fear-based training for police, believing that cops should not be scared of the community. Police One noted the many problems with this approach:
Seriously, though, I wonder what Mayor Frey means by “fear-based training”? All police tactics training – such as firearms, defensive tactics, room clearing, domestic violence training, SWAT training, active shooter response and crisis communications, to name a few – are designed to give officers a prepared and defensible response for critical situations that naturally would create high levels of fear in any human being. Does the Mayor propose prohibiting all these trainings?
You see, when facing a potentially life-threatening event, fear can cause the untrained officer to freeze, underreact, or overreact. Police officers must be taught to operate defensively effectively, as well as legally, in these dangerous situations, while managing their fear. Training officers for survivability – physically, legally and emotionally – not only translates into successful conclusions to difficult calls, but also less liability incurred for the mayors in the jurisdictions that promote such training.
Frey also called for any references to the word “warrior” to be removed from all police-training materials. Police One objected to this change as well:
Those who do not like the word “warrior” often ask, “Do you think it’s a war out there?”
My answer to this would be, “No, it’s not. However, there are times in officers’ careers where they may experience close-quarters combat where the cost of losing will be as high to them as those soldiers who have fallen on the battlefields of our wars. Survival training is an essential part of preparing officers for these terrible and fear-filled moments that are unscheduled, but inevitable.”
I am certain the Honorable Mayor Jacob Frey is one of those people who sincerely love the sound of the word “guardian” to describe their police officers. It makes people feel good. It even makes me feel good.
I have had the pleasure of seeing Minneapolis police officers work often and they are indeed guardians. They know this. However, they also know something Mayor Frey has failed to realize. When you take up the proverbial shield of the guardian, sooner or later you will be required to draw the proverbial sword of the warrior!(Oops, I said it again.)
Now with the streets of Minneapolis looking like a war zone, Frey’s lax criminal justice approach is failing abysmally. Trump may have to come in and clean up the mess that his Frey’s of leadership has caused.
