Anthony Barry, a former deputy campaign manager and consultant to former Sen. Martha McSally, pleaded guilty Friday to stealing campaign funds, the Justice Department announced Friday.
Barry, 33, of Illinois, stole more than $115,000 from the McSally for Senate Campaign in 2018 and 2019, the department said.
Barry fraudulently directed the campaign to pay him more than what he was owed for his salary and had the funds deposited in his personal bank account, according to the Justice Department.
He pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful conversion of campaign funds and is scheduled to be sentenced July 6. He faces a maximum term of five years in prison, the Justice Department said.
