Well, one woman did not think so.
Senator Katrina Robinson is an American politician that represents the Democrats in Tennesee's district.
Robinson was first elected into the 33rd district after defeating a long-standing rival.
She is also a business owner and a registered nurse...
Yesterday, Robinson was charged with a serious count of theft and embezzlement.
This criminal offence occurred between the years 2015 and 2019.
And the effort wasn't even worth it, because Robinson is now divorced.
And it doesn't end there...
And just to make things worse, if they weren't already, she also started up another business for her kids to run.
Other purchases included a Louis Vitton bag for $500.
In fact, according to further investigation, it was revealed that Robinson had spent close to a million dollars.New York Post, she had already spent $600,000 on paying for her wedding, the honeymoon and other lavish gifts.
But that's only the things that are listed...
And it was hard for people to have pity on her when they found out...
