Back in late September of 2020, Kathryn A Connelly was caught red-handed for union corruption and pled guilty for embezzling over $10,000 in union funds. She was the President of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Branch 707, located in Michigan. At this time, she was made to pay all the money back, and she did. Now, a few months later, she is being sentenced to a year of probation as well as being fined $1,000 for her hideous crimes.
