In a scathing opinion, Judge Miller has found that Rosemary Barbour's company defrauded the Federal Emergency Management Agency of close to $80,000. The judge ordered that money repaid, and tacked on a $250,000 fine.
Rosemary Barbour is the wife of Charles Barbour, Gov. Haley Barbour's nephew. Charles Barbour recently lost a close race against Will Longwitz to replace Sen. Walter Michel (R-Jackson). These allegations concerning Rosemary Barbour were addressed by Charles Barbour in an interview with the Jackson Free Press. At the time, Barbour said of the allegations against his wife "There was nothing there to begin with except petty jealousy."
