Maine banker used bank money at strip clubs, federal officials say


Federal authorities said a former executive at TD Bank in Maine used a corporate credit card to spend nearly $220,000 at adult entertainment clubs. Jeffrey Burnham of Arundel is scheduled to appear in US District Court in Portland on Thursday to face a charge of theft by a bank officer. According to court records, Burnham, 41, used the card 72 times at strip clubs in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Florida from February 2011 until February 2012, when he left the company. Burnham was a vice president and regional mortgage sales manager in the bank’s Falmouth office. Authorities said Burnham, who has not been arrested, said the spending was business-related. His lawyer told the Portland Press Herald that Burnham did not want to comment.
