Leslie Johnson returns to work at P.G. County Council
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - The wife of former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson has returned to work at the county council.
Leslie Johnson on Monday voted on several nominations, nearly a week after handing in her resignation letter. The council also voted last week to strip her of her office staff as well as the use of her county car and cell phone.
Her resignation is effective July 31, but council members called on her to resign immediately.
Last month, Johnson acknowledged in federal court that she destroyed a $100,000 check from a developer to her husband and stuffed nearly $80,000 in illicit cash into her underwear as federal agents knocked on the door of the couple's Mitchellville home.
Her sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 13.
