A financial management analyst for the U.S. Secret Service is facing embezzlement and theft charges in federal court for allegedly pocketing $40,000 from a secret fund used to pay off informants.
Angela Watkins, who administered the fund in the Secret Service's Confidential Informant Division from April 2004 to January 2007, told investigators that she used the money to pay her cable bill (what kind of package does she have?) and rent, and to defray personal and household expenses, according to court documents filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Friday. Watkins' arraignment is scheduled for July 27.
When Secret Service Agents needed cash for undercover operations or to pay off a snitch, they drew from the fund. If they didn’t need all the money, they returned balance to Watkins so she could dump it back into the fund.
Apparently, the money didn’t always make it there.
