Criminal Charges Filed Against Former Greenville City Clerk

Missouri Attorney General Joshua Hawley announced that his office has filed felony criminal charges in Wayne County against former Greenville City Clerk Pamela S. Birmingham. The complaint alleges that Birmingham misappropriated over $150,000 in currency over the course of her employment as City Clerk and forged an entry in the city’s check disbursement log.
Birmingham was employed by the City of Greenville between January 2014 and April 2016. During that time, Birmingham allegedly wrote herself several checks, without proper authorization, out of various bank accounts owned by the city. At the request of the Attorney General’s Office, the State Auditor’s Office looked into the matter and determined that Birmingham unlawfully paid herself at least $150,772.00, nearly bankrupting the city.
“There is no place for public corruption in Missouri,” Hawley said. “My office will vigorously prosecute those who attempt to skirt Missouri law for personal benefit.”
The Attorney General’s Public Corruption Team is prosecuting this case with assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri State Auditor’s Office.
Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway released a statement Thursday on the felony charges filed against former Greenville City Clerk Pamela S. Birmingham. “I am dedicated to working with law enforcement to hold corrupt public officials accountable,” said Auditor Nicole Galloway. “I appreciate the attention to this issue in asking for my office’s assistance and expertise in forensic auditing, which led to today’s charges. We will continue to work with the Highway Patrol and Attorney General to ensure justice for taxpayers in Greenville.”
An audit report with additional details will be released at a future date.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Department said Birmingham, who was accompanied by her attorney, turned herself in Monday evening. She is currently free on bond.
More information about this story will be forthcoming.

    While their investigating.
    Why not ask why the county is paying for roads
    To no where and stealing land
    To put county road that goes no where accept
    Their supervisor land

    Sure a guy lives on it. But never has it once
    Became a county road until the road supervisor
    Got land back there.
    Not even a month after signing it a county rd
    The supervisor had property in is name at the end of
    Such road!
    And the county never notified anyone of the property
    Owners that the land they stoled to make a county
    Rd! So why not investigate that.
    I’m sure fema would like to kno
    Why they are paying for county equipment and labors
    Are going for personal use!

      Wayne County has been nothing but crooked officials as far back as I can remember…So many have gotten by with theft in a BIG WAY…but now are dealing with their maker…I guarantee you …a few of them pointing fingers at Birmingham are not any better. Wayne County courthouse employees should have been investigated since the day snyder became sheriff in the 70s and 80s
