Corrine Brown has created plenty of controversy during her 25-years as a FL state Representative, but this last bit of controversy has some dancing in the streets! This loud-mouthed trouble maker was found guilty and convicted of 18 of 22 charges against her, including lying on her taxes and congressional financial disclosure forms, as well as taking money from a charity. Will someone please tell me when more will follow suit? I am so sick and tired of these corrupted crooks living it up on Capital Hill at the expense of all of the people who are responsible for putting them there.
Staying true to her nature, Brown has gone on record making statements about her being among “black elected officials who have been persecuted”. (Excuse me while I vomit)….
Key to her conviction, were the testimonies of Brown’s former Chief of Staff, Elias Simmons and the charity’s former president, Carla Wiley, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Part of the testimony from Simmons included him saying Brown had ordered him to take cash and checks from One Door’s account on many occasions. He said he was told to take out of the charity’s account the maximum of $800 from an ATM near his house, and deposit hundreds of it into Brown’s personal account. Sometimes he kept some for himself.
Also staying true to her nature, Brown testified that she had no idea of the goings-on of those cash transfers and blamed the theft all on Simmons.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Brown’s attorney stated Brown is “strong and fighting for her innocence,” and then continues that she will continue to do that, as she plans to file a motion for a new trial – all with the money she has stolen from a charity, money stolen from taxpayers, money from tax fraud and probably money stolen from elsewhere that we have not found yet.
I’m ready to see this justice. I’m ready to see her behind bars and I’m ready to see MANY MANY more follow. If I don’t see this very soon, it will be a disappointment I will be unable to hide as I continue to call to action everyone else who is as sick and disappointed as I am.
