It just dawned on me that this could be a conspiracy. Think of the many democrats who have been sent to prison over the last year. Don’t you find it unusual that so many democrats have been convicted and not one of them have been able to weasel out of it? I have figured out why. Liberals have been unable to win elections on this side of the bars. So they’ve decided to win elections on the other side. Criminal support for democrats is only surpassed by the support they get from the dead. It’s a natural.
The latest democrat to get herself snared is Ex-Rep Corrine Brown, who started a charity that benefited Corrine Brown and a couple of associates. She was found guilty on 18 of the twenty charges against her including conspiring to commit mail and wire fraud, lying on financial disclosure forms, obstructing the IRS, taking money from a charity that claimed to be providing scholarships to underprivileged students and falsifying information on tax returns. Brown and her pals diverted $800,000 in funds to the fake charity to be used by them for their own purposes.
Brown’s former chief of staff, Ronnie Simmons, and the charity’s president, Carla Wiley, both testified against their former boss.
The verdict was given after two days of deliberation and eight days of testimony from roughly 50 witnesses. Brown, who served in the lower chamber from Jan. 1993 – Jan. 2017, said she had made some mistakes, but maintained it was not intentional.
“Let me just admit right her and now that there was a lot of sloppy bookkeeping … It was a mistake on my part and I needed to get on top of my taxes,” Brown told the jury, according to ABC News.
Assistant U.S. Attorney A. Tysen Duva blasted the former congresswoman’s actions during his opening statement, according to ABC.
“Corruption. Greed. And a significant entitlement attitude,” Duva told the jury. “And that’s what this case is about. It’s about lying, cheating, and stealing. It’s about fraud and corruption of the member of the highest level of the American government.”
