The judgement is in and Hillary Clinton’s good friend, Florida Democrat Corrine Brown has been found guilty of 18 criminal offences and faces what could amount to life in jail!
As she stole scholarship funds from school children, Corrine Brown was close with Pelosi, flew with Obama, and promoted Clinton, and she was a Super-Delegate!
The FBI demonstrated that Brown ‘exploited the needs of children and deceived her constituents to advance her own personal and political agendas’. The FBI stated the Congresswoman got $800,000 in donations for a charity she was connected to while scholarships were only $1,200.
The judgement came just three days following the closing arguments. Brown was proven to have lived the ellite life on cash that aides secretly transferred in her bank account after moving it through other accounts.
She is predicted to be sentenced within just 120 days.
The trial delivered explosive headlines when it was exposed that the disgraced congresswoman took $750 from a bogus charity to purchase her daughter a $10 birthday cake.
The Florida Times Union informed:
“The jury convicted Brown of 18 of the 22 separate criminal counts a grand jury indicted her for in July. The convictions involve conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud, tax crimes and hiding income she should have publicly reported.
She was found not guilty of two counts of mail fraud and two counts of wire fraud.
Brown could in theory be sentenced to decades in prison, but that decision is likely more than three months away. No sentencing date was immediately set.
Each fraud or conspiracy conviction carries a potential 20-year sentence, and each tax conviction three years. Hiding income could lead to another five-year sentence.
The convictions affirm parts of a narrative prosecutors told of Brown breaking laws while she lived an unsustainable expensive lifestyle that left her desperate for cash.
Jurors were told the brash 70-year-old Democratic icon, who spent 24 years in Congress before losing reelection last year, received $141,000 in untraceable cash over several years through sources including the sham charity One Door for Education and her Friends of Corrine Brown campaign committee.
An FBI accountant testified Brown, who earned around $175,000 a year as a member of Congress with a pension from the Florida Legislature, spent an average of $1,438 per month more than her reported income.
“Former Congresswoman Brown took an oath year after year to serve others, but instead she exploited the needs of children and deceived her constituents to advance her own personal and political agendas,” said FBI Jacksonville Division Special Agent in Charge Charles Spencer in a prepared statement. ”
With her ex – chief of staff testifying in opposition to her, the question is inevitable! Why did the Democrats continuously cozy up to a congresswoman who was so obviously corrupt?
From the beginning, Corrine Brown has been shrouded in controversy. Shortly after she won election in 1992, the Federal Election Commission accused Brown of violating numerous campaign finance laws. The biggie was that she accepted donations from foreign citizens and failed to report the use of a corporate plane. And that’s just the tip of the ethical iceberg.
A convenient rap sheet, put together by the Florida Times-Union, documents every allegation of wrongdoing brought against Brown during her 27-year career.
It is the never-ending story!
In the midst of all this scandal, Corinne Brown not only fund-raised with the president but also enjoyed prominent perches on the Transportation and Veteran Affairs Committees.
