Deneeta Pope became famous for being Republican vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan’s college girlfriend, and some in the media have smugly pointed out that Pope is an Obama-supporting Democrat.
Paul Ryan’s African-American college sweetheart has spent time in prison for wire fraud, it emerged today.
Deneeta Pope hit headlines after MailOnline revealed that she was the Republican vice-presidential candidate’s ex-girlfriend who opened his eyes to the evils of racism.
She served five months in prison after defrauding her employer Ernst & Young out of $77,000 in 1999, according to the federal Bureau of Prisons.
Ms Pope admitted claiming funds from work to attend an educational course which did not exist.
I can hardly wait to see how Pope’s criminal record will be used to somehow tar Ryan, who dated Poe a decade before she became a felon.
