Former Mahoning treasurer Antonini arrives at prison

Published: Wed, January 8, 2014 @ 12:09 a.m.

Staff report


Lisa A. Antonini, former Mahoning County treasurer and former Mahoning County Democratic Party chairwoman, has begun serving her five months at the federal prison camp for women in Alderson, W.Va.

A prison spokeswoman said Antonini arrived at the minimum security prison at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday to begin serving her sentence for honest services mail fraud, to which she pleaded guilty.

Antonini admitted taking and failing to report a $3,000 cash gift from a local businessman on Jan. 16, 2008, on a disclosure form she mailed to the Ohio Ethics Commission.

She reported only a $200 contribution that a businessman gave by check that day to her primary campaign for county treasurer.

Board of elections records show only Anthony M. Cafaro Sr., former Cafaro Co. president, as a contributor of $200 by check to her campaign that day.

Cafaro and his company were not charged with any crime concerning gifts to Antonini or her campaign.

After prison, Antonini will be on supervised release for two years, with the first five months of it under electronically monitored house arrest.

U.S. District Court Judge Sara Lioi, who permitted Antonini to self-report to prison, also fined Antonini $2,000 and ordered her to perform 150 hours of community service while under supervision.

Antonini, 44, of Youngstown, who had no prior criminal record, resigned May 16, 2011, as county treasurer, within hours after the U.S. attorney filed the information containing the charge against her.

So was the $3000 worth all of this?

Why does nothing ever happen to the crooks who bribed all these politicians?? Is our law enforcement so corrupted that the Cafaro's are immune to prosecution ? Flo, J.J., and Anthony must have some very powerful friends in their pocket..

Fans can relax . Lisa won't be "doing it tough". This prison is known as Camp Cupcake , possibly the federal system's most attractive institution . It's had some wellknown inmates such as Billie Holiday, "Squeeky" Fromme & Diane Hathaway. More recently , Martha Stewart gave it a glowing recommendation after her stay . She started a yoga class there that Lisa may enjoy .

No prison is fun, but if I had to pick one, Alderson would be it.
