Controversies

Money stealing charges

On November 6, 2013, the St. Louis County Circuit Court charged Webb with one count of felony stealing of over $500 by deceit, as well as seven misdemeanor charges stemming from alleged misuse of campaign funds. The charge against Webb states that he asked for a $3000 donation from Community Loans of America for the sake of holding a reception of the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus, of which he was previously the chair. The complaint alleges that Webb instead transferred the money from the caucus' account for personal use. The misdemeanor charges include failure to report funds, spending in excess of campaign finance limits, and illegally converting and commingling campaign funds, all between the years of 2010 and 2012.[1]

House Minority Leader Jacob Hummel (D) told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that on the day of the charges, Webb informed him of his impending resignation. However, Webb did not resign, and his attorney, Paul D'Agrosa, said that such a move would only come at a later date. D'Agrosa said that Webb would turn himself in once a warrant for his arrest was issued. Webb surrendered himself on November 7, 2013, and was released on his own recognizance after about two hours. The same day, Hummel called for Webb to resign, citing his purported "change of heart" as well as "the sake of his family and constituents." St. Louis prosecutors must now seek an indictment from a grand jury.[1][8]

On December 2, 2013, Webb emailed a statement confirming his immediate resignation:[1][9]

“Today is a tough day for me personally. But, this job is never about oneself. It has been an honor to serve the people of Missouri's 67th District. I've enjoyed this opportunity because it's given me a platform to be a voice for common, everyday people. My commitment to serving others goes far beyond political office.

“I strongly believe that the allegations against me will work themselves out. It’s only right and fair that my family, the people and my colleagues not be negatively be impacted by the distractions these legal challenges present.

“With that being said, it's with a heavy heart that I will be resigning my office effective immediately.”
