WASHINGTON (AP) – The former girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch has been charged with stealing from a military charity she led.
Court documents don’t say how much prosecutors believe Patricia Driscoll took from the District of Columbia-based Armed Forces Foundation, whose mission is to support service members, veterans and their families.
But a 2014 tax return for the non-profit says that the “foundation has become aware of suspected misappropriations” by Driscoll totaling more than $599,000 for the years 2006 to 2014. It says she misused money for meals, travel, parking tickets, makeup and gifts.
Driscoll was indicted on two counts each of wire fraud, mail fraud, and tax evasion, and one count of attempts to interfere with administration of Internal Revenue laws.
Driscoll declined to comment when reached by telephone Tuesday.
