tax time

The total of funds stolen by two ladies from D.C. taxpayers has risen from 16 million to 20 million. Enterprising ladies! Washington Post has the story.
One of the alleged perpetrators has been ordered by the judge to wear a "monitoring device" and she is to refrain from making purchases larger than $5,000, but otherwise she is free to roll in her loot.
If I went out today and stole a half dozen wide screen TV's would I be free to watch them this evening?
The strange ways of justice...

Hey! Now the total is up to 31 Million. Looks like little of the loot will be recoverable. Wasn't kept in the form of negotiable securities and folding money but as expensive watches, shoes, hand-bags and Happy meals
