Looks like members of Congress aren’t the only ones who steal. A former aide to Rep. Lloyd Doggett was sentenced to 30 days in jail after pleading guilty Tuesday to stealing $168,000 from the congressman’s campaign.

Kristi Willis, 38, Doggett’s former district director, worked in the Congressman’s Austin office from 1998 to 2004.

Under a plea bargain, she pleaded guilty to a single count of felony misapplication of funds. In addition to the 30 days in jail, she must serve four years’ probation and pay $123,000 more in restitution. She already has returned $45,000 to the campaign.

Willis has a spending addiction due to a psychological problem and that she is seeking professional help, her attorney claims.

Democrat Dogget has represented his Austin congressional district since 1995.
