Palm Beach County clerk Anita Pedemey , 54, reportedly admitted to stealing the fees paid by exotic dancers. The reason, however, was a bit novel: she reportedly told police that her husband has been “spending a lot of money at Home Depot.” So much for the slogan “More Saving, More Doing.” I guess his “more saving” produced her “more doing.”
Another clerk noticed that money for stripper licenses seemed missing. The $75 license fees went into a fund but there was some $27,350 missing. Pedemey fessed up and that “there were a lot of bills.” She has resigned from her position and now faces grand theft, fraud and misconduct charges. Home Depot remains uncharged.
