Mother pleads guilty to stalking daughter's ex-boyfriend

(WMC-TV) - A former fundraiser for President Barack Obama pleaded guilty to one count of interstate stalking in federal court in the western district of Tennessee Friday.

In return for a guilty plea from Nadia Cavner, prosecutors agreed to request the judge give her no more than probation.

According to her website, Cavner is the number one female financial adviser in Missouri, who manages nearly $500 million dollars for 1,100 clients who have an average net worth of about $2 million.

In 2008, she was designated as a bundler for then-presidential candidate Barack Obama and raised tens of thousands of dollars for his campaign.

Federal information alleges Cavner stalked and harassed her college-aged daughter's ex-boyfriend, identified only as P.M. in court records.

Prosecutors said that after her daughter and P.M. split in August 2011, Cavner started stalking him and his new girlfriend.

The couple moved from Atlanta to Memphis.

In a lengthy statement of proof, Cavner is accused of orchestrating a plot to break up P.M. and his new girlfriend.

According to that statement, Cavner had an employee at her investment firm make harassing phone calls. Cavner also hired another woman to flirt with him.

Also, she paid $26,000 to have their homes illegally bugged with wire taps. She tried to hire someone to cut the girlfriend's hair off.

Prosecutors quote her as saying:

"I don't want to kill him. I don't want to take him out. I don't want to hurt him. But at some point I may have to have you have someone rough him up, break an arm or two."

Cavner will be sentenced on August 1st. Max is 5 years and $250,000 fine. She can no longer vote, sit on a jury, own a gun, or fundraise.
