Corrine Brown, (D-FL), served in the US House of Representatives from 1993 to 2016. She was charged on numerous accounts of fraud and tax evasion for taking funds from her charity to use for personal reasons. Kind of sounds like what happened with former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. He was also charged and found guilty of fraud, abuse of campaign funds and was sent to prison. Hopefully, Brown, who was found guilty on 18 charges, will also find herself behind bars.
Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was found guilty on 18 fraud and tax evasion charges Thursday afternoon in a Jacksonville federal court.
The charges stemmed from accusations she illegally siphoned thousands of dollars from her charity into her own bank account for lavish parties, trips and shopping excursions.
Brown was found not guilty on four of the 22 total charges.
Brown served as a Florida representative in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1993 until 2017. She was defeated in her 2016 primary race…
As many politicians and officials that have been caught, arrested and imprisoned for defrauding their campaign or charity and tax evasion, that few if any would continue to try to get away with it. However, it seems that lately more and more have been trying to swindle money from donors for their own personal greed.
