Saddening is a wrong choice of words, but shameless is the right one. We don’t know exactly how many times did she do it when she’s caught only this time. Democrats always strive for more funding from government or donations for the programs they have created they claimed for the ppl in need so that they can have more chance to steal from it.
From Associated Press:
U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida and her chief of staff pleaded not guilty Friday to multiple fraud charges and other federal offenses in a grand jury indictment unsealed after an investigation into what prosecutors call a phony charity turned into a personal slush fund.
Brown, a 69-year-old Democrat, and Chief of Staff Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, 50, entered pleas in Jacksonville federal court on charges of mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, obstruction and filing of false tax returns.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who called the charges against Brown, “deeply saddening,” said that for more than two decades “Brown has served her constituents in Florida with passion and energy. She has been a champion for America’s veterans.”
The 24-count indictment comes after an investigation into the purported charity One Door for Education Foundation Inc., which federal prosecutors say was billed as a way to give scholarships to poor students but instead filled the coffers of Brown and her associates.
After the hearing, Brown predicted, she would be cleared at trial. She was surrounded by supporters outside the courthouse, some carrying signs. One read, “Justice or else. Corrine matters.”
Brown and Simmons, of Laurel, Maryland, were both released on $50,000 bail and ordered not to travel outside the U.S. A status hearing was set for July 26. Simmons, who has been Brown’s chief of staff since 1993, declined comment after the hearing.
I don’t know that you can stoop any lower than raising money to help poor children then not even distributing the money raised for them. Just look at how selfish this woman is… she stole ALL of it! She’s going to pay royally…whether it be this life or the next. She is one rotten woman, very similar to someone else we know right?
The someone else, who is now running for President…
