Lady Steals $85K From Nonprofit; Goes on Talbots Shopping Spree, Buys Beyoncé Concert Tix

This 63-year-old NYC stunt queen has great taste in entertainment, but she's a weasel. Sharon Davidson, who, despite the way she looks, is a card-carrying member of the Beehive and stole used stolen funds to purchase, among other things, tickets to see Mrs Carter in concert.

A former nonprofit director was indicted on Monday for allegedly stealing more than $85,000 from the organization to buy Beyoncé tickets, clothes, jewelry and manicures. The defendant, Sharon Davidson, had worked for the North Flatbush Business Improvement District. The organization, known as a BID, has about 150 local Brooklyn businesses members who pay annual fees that are supposed to be used to promote and develop the neighborhood and keep the streets clean. According to a statement from Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson, Davidson allegedly used the organization's debit cards to make hundreds of unauthorized purchases, withdrew cash from ATMs, deposit checks intended for the BID into her personal accounts, and write checks to herself out of the nonprofit's accounts. Thompson said this took place between February 2010 and December 2013. The charges, totaling $85,691.36, included $4,000 at Talbots, $600 for Beyoncé concert tickets, $600 at Weight Watchers, $400 on manicures and pedicures, $3,000 at online grocer Fresh Direct, and $13,000 paid through Paypal for makeup, jewelry and restaurants, among other things, according to Thompson. Davidson's lawyer, Morris Shamuil, said his client maintains her innocence and believes that she will be exonerated....As executive director, Davidson was responsible for maintaining the organization's books, records and paying its expenses. This meant she had access to the BID's bank accounts and debit cards, according to the district attorney. Davidson, whom the DA said made $30,000 a year in her former role, also allegedly applied for unemployment insurance benefits while she was still employed. The district attorney alleged that she collected benefits for nearly for months, totaling in $5,190. Her alleged spending spree came to light as New York City's Department of Small Business Services was conducting an audit. "The defendant allegedly used the BID's accounts as her own personal piggy bank, spending nonstop on everything from airline tickets to chocolates," Thompson said in a statement. Davidson was released without bail and ordered to return to court on May 13.
