A U.S. House Representative is in big, big trouble for running a scam charity, and funneling tens and maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars into her own pocket!!!
And you know why you probably haven’t heard about it? Because she’s a Democrat, of course!!
Here are the insane details of this absolutely deplorable story of liberal politician Corrine Brown:
Longtime Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown learned Friday that she could face more than 300 years in prison, after a lengthy investigation has her facing federal fraud-related charges.
The crux of the 24-count federal indictment unsealed Friday are accusations that Brown and her chief of staff, Ronnie Simmons, used her official post as a member of Congress to help solicit $800,000 in contributions for a sham education charity. Most of that money, prosecutors say, was spent on things like vacations, events in Brown’s honor and car repairs.
If convicted, Brown, 69, could face up to 357 years in prison and $4.8 million in fines, while Simmons could get up to 355 years and a $4.7 million fine. Both pleaded not guilty to each charge outlined in the indictment.
Three… hundred… and fifty… seven… YEARS… in prison. Really say it slowly and enjoy it, savor it. That’s what happens when justice catches up to a fraud and a scam artist. “Allegedly.” Also, she kinda looks like a gremlin.
Here’s more from Politico:
The charges are linked to the One Door Education Foundation, a Virginia-based group founded in 2011 that purported to solicit donations to help with things like scholarships. Prosecutors say the group was a scam and that most of the $800,000 in donations went to benefit either Brown, Simmons or the group’s president Carla Wiley, who has already pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and has been cooperating with the feds.
Part of the conspiracy, according to the 53-page indictment, involved Brown using her position and influence as a member of Congress to get donors to give money to the group.
“Brown, Simmons, and Wiley used Brown’s official positions as a member of Congress to solicit contributions to One Door for Education and to induce individuals and entities to make donations … based on false and fraudulent representation that the funds would be used for charitable purposes,” read the indictment.
Court documents outline allegations that Brown and Simmons took money from the foundation, made cash deposits into their personal bank accounts and used the money to pay for a bevy of personal items — including $5,000 for a magazine cover featuring Brown, nearly $3,000 for a 2013 Miami Beach vacation taken by Wiley and Simmons and $2,643 for repair work on Brown’s personal car.
I mean wow, that’s pretty low, even for a Democrat. And it makes me so happy because it confirms my ideological bias against loser Democrats – which is also just true.
