Lisa Winters, the former head of the Bronx Community Pride Center (she was fired in 2010) has been charged with larceny over her embezzlement of at least $338,000 in funds for her personal use, the NY Daily News reports:
Winters...used the dough to pay $25,751.74 to Eyes on Africa for a personal trip and $15,953 to a dog-walker, authorities said. She also paid thousands of dollars for trips to the United Kingdom, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Carolinas, according to the criminal complaint. Winters was fired from center by its board of directors in January 2010 after proof surfaced that she misappropriated funds, according to a Department of Investigation report.
Winters was arrested June 15 and charged with grand larceny and 23 counts of falsifying business records for allegedly cutting checks for her benefit to the tune of more than $143,000.
She was freed without bail at her arraignment. The Bronx district attorney's office is still investigating whether additional charges may be brought, a spokesman said.

Jeremy L. Smythe and Daniel Soto, a gay Riverside, California couple, have filed restraining orders against two employees at Lowes after they said they were threatened by employees Andy Olague and Frank Villa when they came in accompanied by their teen son to complain about a product.
Smythe said he approached the customer service counter and said he wanted to return the product, saying it wasn't working well. When he told the clerk he didn't have a receipt, but that it was likely under his Lowe's account information, for some reason the clerk became angry and annoyed.
"He says, 'Just so you know, if you'd read the [expletive] directions, you would see that you have to charge it for 12 hours to make it work correctly,'" Smythe said.
Smythe says he responded with, "Don't talk to me like that, I'm definitely not the one to talk to like that."
But the Lowe's employee only grew more hostile, allegedly making anti-gay slurs. According to Smythe, the clerk then said, "I'll beat your [expletive]. I'll say what [expletive] I want."
Smythe admitted firing back at the cashier at that point, saying, "No wonder you haven't been promoted." And that was when he says the cashier tried to attack him and had to be restrained by the assistant manager while saying, "I got your address, I got your phone number, I'll be at your house."

A rally at Lowes has been organized:
Jeremy Smythe, of Riverside, said the protest against the Lowe’s at 9851 Magnolia Blvd. has now been scheduled for 1 p.m. next Saturday, June 30, to allow more people to participate. The protest had been originally scheduled for Sunday, five days after Smythe and his domestic partner, Daniel Soto, say employees called them anti-gay slurs and had to be physically restrained by store managers.
Matt Bomer talks to E!'s Marc Malkin about his coming out:
I never really endeavored to hide anything. But there were times I chose not to relegate my history to the back page of a magazine, which to me is sort of akin to putting your biography on a bathroom wall."
Bomer says he has been touched by some reactions to being more open about his sexuality:
"I had somebody from the military approach me a few weeks ago just saying how this helps people, affects people. It brought me to tears."
Bomer then revealed some of the surprises he encountered filming stripper movie Magic Mike:
"When they called me, I thought, 'Do they have the wrong number? Did they mean to call the guy from Vampire Diaries?'And at the time I was really skinny so I think there may have been a five-minute window from when I hung up the phone to when I went to the gym."
Bomer tells Malkin that stripping for a woman wasn't something he was used to:
"Channing told me, 'You have to use the stretcher and just get up on this girl and grind your junk in her face. But this girl was not going to just sit there and be ground upon. She started licking me in all kinds of special places and we just kept going…It was one of those situations where you were in an environment where moral parameters are not the same as they are if you're doing a political drama. You just sort of have to say yes to everything and embrace it."
