Another day, another crooked Democrat.
Failed Cincinnati Democrat Mayoral candidate Kelli Prather on Tuesday was charged in a Covid-19 fraud case and faces more than 30 years in prison.
Prather defrauded the Payment Protection Program (PPP) by applying for loans for six different businesses that she claimed she owned: Enhanced Healthcare Solutions, Life Skills Enhancement, Prather Property Management, Reliable Ambulette Services, Rich Glo Management Services and Tots R Us.
Federal prosecutors said Prather asked for $600,000 but only received $19,800.
According to court documents, Prather spent $8,000 on personal items and eating out at restaurants and gave another $8,000 to a boyfriend.
The FBI got tipped off by Fifth Third Bank after they found discrepancies in Prather’s loan applications.
Through research, the FBI found that none of Prather’s businesses were operational.
WCPO Cincinnati reported:
Three Cincinnati women, including former mayoral hopeful Kelli Prather, received hundreds of thousands of dollars from federal pandemic relief funds after lying in their applications, according to federal prosecutors.
Prather, 48; Toni Wright, 34; and Melissa McGhee, 37, each stand charged with bank fraud in connection to their loan applications and could be sentenced to over 30 years in prison.
Prather applied for six Paycheck Protection Program loans — one for each of the six businesses she claimed to own: Enhanced Healthcare Solutions, Life Skills Enhancement, Prather Property Management, Reliable Ambulette Services, Rich Glo Management Services and Tots R Us.
Prather was hit with five counts: Making false statements to a federal agency, aggravated identify theft, bank fraud, unauthorized disclosure of a social security number, and making false statements in loan and credit applications, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
