Washington Post Reporter Behind Roy Moore Hit Piece Has History Of Writing Fake Checks
Washington Post reporter Stephanie McCrummen, who co-wrote today’s hit piece on Judge Roy Moore, has a history of writing fake checks.
According to left-leaning New York Magazine, McCrummen has an extensive criminal record, committing four infractions in three different states.
The original 2011 report details how McCrummen’s criminal career began with her writing a fake check in North Carolina:
“Ms. McCrummen’s criminal history began with North Carolina Case # 1992 CR 00654, a violation of the Article 19 – False Pretenses and Cheats section of the North Carolina Criminal Code. Ms. McCrummen was convicted of a crime punishable by up to six months of imprisonment for writing a hot check that was deemed worthless.”
Is it possible a journalist with a history of writing fake checks could also write fake news?
McCrummen’s other three crimes are less serious, traffic-related offenses: two are speeding – including going 46 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour speed zone – and one is failing to obey a highway sign.
Moreover, when McCrummen was found guilty of speeding in August 2010 in Arizona, she failed to pay the fine before returning to DC. A collection review occurred the next month, and it was not until October 23rd, 2010 of that year that she finally paid the defaulted fine.
