Over half of the cash came from David Kweller, a former Mississippi Department of Health employee, who was responsible for licensing and regulating different professions.

Kweller plead guilty to embezzling $26,000 when he collected money for licensing fees, fines, and penalties for the department between 2010 and 2012.
