No big deal. Lots of people make political campaign contributions, and there is no evidence of any impropriety. But with civic leader and former Kansas City University of Medicine and Bio-sciences president Karen Pletz in the news for a 24-count federal indictment alleging she embezzled more than $1.5 million from the university, made false statements on her tax returns and engaged in money laundering, I thought it was an interesting bit of trivia.
"Pletz, 63, made her initial appearance at 10 a.m. before a federal magistrate. Her lawyer, Charles German, entered not-guilty pleas on her behalf to all the charges."
