GREENBELT, Md. (WJZ) — The treasurer for former Maryland Delegate Tawanna Gaines’ campaign committee has pleaded guilty to a federal wire fraud charge.
Anitra Edmond, 43, of New Carrollton, pleaded guilty Friday after being charged last month.
Justice Department officials said Edmond admitted to taking more than $35,000 of campaign funds for her personal use between November 2012 and June 2018.
Edmond faces up to 20 years in prison when she’s sentenced in February.
Gaines will also have to pay $22,65.03 in restitution.
