Dem "House Sitter" Indicted For Fraud Over Charity "Slush Fund"

posted on July 12, 2016

Rep. Corrine Brown, a participant in the Democratic gun-control sit-in gimmick, has a far bigger issue than guns on her hands—notably, a 24-count federal indictment. 

"Congresswoman Brown and her chief of staff [Elias ‘Ronnie’ Simmons] are alleged to have used the congresswoman's official position to solicit over $800,000 in donations to a supposed charitable organization, only to use that organization as a personal slush fund," Assistant U.S. Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, chief of the Justice Department's criminal division, said in a statement. 

Of the money raised for the One Door for Education scholarship fund, only $1,200 went to students. The rest went toward luxury boxes at concerts and NFL games, lavish receptions and events held in Brown’s honor 

Brown pleaded not guilty to the charges Friday. If convicted, she could face up to 357 years in prison and a fine of up to $4 million.
