MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee County supervisor quit Friday morning, before she might have been expelled for a criminal conviction. Prosecutors said 41-year-old Toni Clark will plead guilty Friday afternoon to pocketing $6,500 in campaign contributions. She’s expected to be convicted of filing a false campaign report. That’s a felony, which requires removal from office upon sentencing – which is also expected Friday afternoon.
In her resignation letter, Clark said it was an honor and a pleasure to be a public servant on the Milwaukee County Board for 7 years. Prosecutors said she has problems with gambling and managing her finances. Reports said Clark took part in a major fundraiser in 2007, but her next report showed that she didn’t collect anything.
