Frauds and cons running for Congress... her experience has shown her firsthand the inequality of the judicial system

 

Pleads guilty to tax fraud; running a fake charity to funnel money to her own personal account... has prison time reduced to time 'already served' is now running for Congress again and says;  she can help people because her experience has shown her firsthand the inequality of the judicial system.

 

 

 

"Former Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), who pleaded guilty to tax fraud in May, on Thursday announced she is running for Congress again in Florida’s 10th Congressional District.

Brown served 12 terms in Congress before losing her primary in 2016, one month after prosecutors indicted her in connection with a fake charity.

“I’ve represented most of the people of the new 10th District during my 24 years in Congress and I always earned huge support in this region,” Brown said in a release. “Now I see our hard-won gains are being taken away from us. Minorities have lost opportunities to elect candidates of their choice because of the recent gerrymandering in the State of Florida.”

Prosecutors said Brown had funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars donated to a charity for poor students into her personal account.

She was found guilty on 18 of 22 charges of tax evasion and wire and mail fraud, but a federal appeals court ordered a new trial after Brown had served more than two years of her sentence.

Brown pleaded guilty to one count of tax fraud in May and was sentenced to the time she had already served, avoiding the new trial. Brown was also ordered to pay roughly $63,000 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.

In her campaign announcement on Thursday, Brown mentioned her case directly and said her experience has shown her firsthand the inequality of the judicial system."
