VIDEO: Former branch president of NAACP has been arrested

First Reported by Wounded American Warrior

BELOIT, Wis. –Birdia McAlister, the former president of the Beloit branch of the NAACP, has been arrested on one count of felony theft. She is accused of misappropriating $52,605 of the organization’s funds for personal use.

Capt. Dan Risse, of the Beloit Police Department, said members of the Beloit NAACP noticed irregularities in their bookkeeping last November and notified law enforcement.

“The record-keeping unfortunately wasn’t everything it could have been, so it is a little difficult to determine what the total amount was. There were some discrepancies, some missing minutes from some meetings, so it was a little difficult to determine what had been approved and what hadn’t been approved,” Risse said.
