Corrupt Florida Democrat Corrine Brown is in deep trouble. She ran a fake charity which directed money away from kids and if convicted on all counts she’s going away for a long time.
She also palled around with lots of other big name Democrats.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Indicted Democrat partied with Pelosi, flew with Obama, and campaigned for Clinton
She partied with Nancy Pelosi, traveled on Air Force one next to President Obama, and cast her superdelegate vote for Hillary Clinton. But today Corrine Brown is in federal court for stealing scholarship money from school children.
The disgraced congresswoman must defend against charges that she funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from a non-profit charity, One Door for Education, into her own pocket. If convicted on all 24 counts, she faces 357 years in prison and $4.8 million in fines.
With her former chief of staff expected to testify against her, the question’s no longer whether or not she’s guilty. It’s why Democrat brass would continually cozy up to a congresswoman who was so clearly corrupt?
I hope they nail Maxine waters next
Corrine..aka..The creature from the Black Lagoon will have free housing, free food and medical soon all on the taxpayer dime.. She should be thrilled, it's the Socialist paradise.
Look at her race, do you people for one moment think she will get sentenced.
How long do we have to wait before her day in court comes? And in the meantime....WHY does she get to continue holding her position when such serious crimes are pending? Why don't they have to relinquish their position to a "runner-up or temp" until it's cleared up?
THIS is the problem....not enough Christians want to run, most don't have a desire for the power that comes with these positions, BUT...they need to understand without Christians in these positions then the ship won't make it to port. My dad and I had a huge argument over this decades ago. When I used to work for the city of P.V. and found out how much corruption goes on even at the lowest levels of government, and I was telling him of some of the things I and a few other honest employees had found evidence of (following the money....), he said he was going to run for city council to replace one of our dishonest members. IMMEDIATELY he had backing from all kinds of local businesses to run, even without knowing anything about him. Then at the last minute...he changed his mind, said he didn't want to do it. I'm like WHY?????? If we don't get honest people involved in government....we're doomed. And I reminded him of all the years that him and mom raised me and told me when you see something wrong, it's your responsibility as a Christian to intervene. He'd been retired for many years, and did nothing else with his time, so it wasn't like he had too much to do, he just didn't want to get "involved" in politics.
We've GOT to encourage more Christians to get INVOLVED, to DO something, to PROTEST, to RUN, to email, phone, snail mail. ANYTHING you can do is important.
All the way down to local is right. Two years ago, we had property dispute/S over unclear property boundaries on land to be sold. Our city board did not care one bit that who actually owned a sliver of land might not be who thought he owned it.
Two parties claimed ownership of the sliver of land. One was selling, one was not. The party who actually owned it, spent one full week away from the company he owned, in order to work with lawyers to prove that he owned what he said he owned and to find all original documentation. If he had been considered seriously, the sale could not have gone through.
Didn't matter. The board approved the new construction even though the issue was unclear.
He ended up selling and moving. Don't know what his financial loss was.
I remember a year when one of our Codes Enforcement officers was passing through the city, and was investigating a complaint made by a neighbor that someone was using grass clippings for mulch (which at the time was a violation). She went by to investigate, found it was true, and left a card on the homeowners door advising them of the violation and that they had 60 days to resolve it before a penalty was involved. She didn't even know who lived in the home, and it didn't matter anyway... Turns out, it was one of our council women, she starting filing bogus complaints against the officer (simply for doing her job), and made her life MISERABLE. Then she put it to the council to change the city code so that she was no longer in violation, and OF COURSE they found it in her favor.
I mean SERIOUSLY.............they will stoop to ANY low just to have their way like any spoiled brat having a tantrum.
That's what I see, give someone just a little itty bit of power, and they turn into rabid wolves.
Democrats are what they are called.
Philip, too bad obuma is not in office anymore, she would have a simple pardon.
