Original Message The Democratic mayor of Atlantic City resigned after pleading guilty this week to stealing nearly $90k from Atlantic City Starz, a youth basketball program he co-founded for underprivileged kids, and used the money to fund his own lavish lifetsyle.

Prosecutors said Gilliam had used his office to solicit the donations, telling donors the money would be used for his youth basketball team or for school supplies for poor children. Instead, “Gilliam, 49, used about $87,215 in donations made to AC Starz between 2013 and 2018 to cover personal expenses, ‘including luxury designer clothing, expensive meals, and personal trips to various locations,’ federal court documents show," CNN reports.
