Note: This is NOT a question asking why Umbridge can cast a Patronus
When Harry wears the locket he is unable to cast a Patronus, why can Umbridge cast a Patronus while wearing a Horcrux, when it was supposed to drain the wearer of energy like Harry?
JK has answered this directly:
James Farrell: How did Umbridge manage to conjure a patronus while
wearing the locket, when Harry wasn't able to?
J.K. Rowling: Because she is a very nasty piece of work. She has an
affinity for this horrible object, which would help rather than hinder
