That disgraceful Corrine Brown


About you, US House Rep. Corrine Brown?

Oh, we know all about you.

You've spent nearly 8 years now making excuses for the Veterans Affairs Department.

You attacked the same Department when Bully Boy Bush was occupying the Oval Office.

With Barack President of the United States, you instead attacked veterans.

Yet, trash that you are, you wanted to be Ranking Member.

Even though you've yet to master the English language.

But all those bad wigs have sure been a hoot, haven't they?


Visit your press room?

Why would we?

You haven't updated it since June.

So you've left out the big news you had last week.

 Kevin Bohn (CNN) reported:

Brown, of Jacksonville, Florida, and her chief of staff, Elias "Ronnie" Simmons, of Laurel, Maryland, were charged in a 24-count indictment, included charges of participating in a conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, multiple counts of mail and wire fraud, concealing material facts on required financial disclosure forms, theft of government property, obstruction of the due administration of the internal revenue laws, and filing false tax returns, the Justice Department said in a news release.

NPR's Jason Slotkin explains:

Federal prosecutors allege Brown, 69, and Simmons, 50, misled donors while soliciting donations for One Door for Education, under the guise of funding scholarships for minority students, raising more than $800,000.
Instead, as NPR's Greg Allen reports for our Newscast Unit, "prosecutors say Brown, Simmons and Carla Wiley, the head of the charity, diverted the funds to their own accounts."

Of all the money raised, the 24-count indictment states, only $1,200 was awarded as scholarships.

Jim Piggott, Lynnsey Gardner, Vic Micolucci and Chris Parenteau (NEWS4JAX) report that Corrine denies guilt on all charges and add, "If convicted on all charges, Brown could be sentenced up to 357 years in prison and fined $4.8 million."

Oh, Corrine.

Chris Cillizza (WASHINGTON POST) declares, "Corrine Brown, for having the words 'personal slush fund' in a headline along with your name, you had the Worst Week in Washington. Congrats, or something."
