Report: Alston declared bankruptcy in 2010
Monday - 12/31/2012, 8:58am EST
WASHINGTON - A newspaper is reporting that a former delegate to the Maryland state House declared bankruptcy while she was running for her seat and just before using state money for personal expenses.
The Washington Post reports former delegate Tiffany Alston filed for bankruptcy in May 2010 as she was campaigning for election to the Maryland House of Delegates. She won and took office in 2011.
The paper reports Alston's $182,758 in debts included $26,000 she owed her former law partner. She declined to comment when contacted by the paper.
The former Prince George's County Democrat pleaded no contest earlier this year to using campaign money to pay for wedding expenses. A jury also found her guilty of using $800 in state money to pay an employee in her law firm.
