Corrupt Florida Democrat Corrine Brown has been indicted over a fake charity and now she’s trying to get people to donate money for her legal defense. Pathetic.

Indicted Corrine Brown Plays Race Card in Seeking Donations to Legal Defense Fund
Rep. Corrine Brown (D., Fla.) is seeking donations to her legal defense fund after being hit with criminal charges, claiming in her plea for cash that she has been targeted due to her efforts to fight racism in Washington.
Brown, who has been in Congress for over 20 years, was indicted in July on 24 counts of fraud stemming from activities performed by a foundation established by the congresswoman.
One Door for Education, the Virginia-based charity founded by Brown, accepted more than $800,000 in donations over the course of four years. During this time, only two checks totaling $1,200 went toward charitable purposes, the Justice Department said in its indictment.
Federal authorities determined that money from the foundation was instead used to personally benefit Brown, her chief of staff, and the foundation’s president, Carla Wiley. Wiley pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in March.
Who is going to send this woman money?
She needs to face the music on her own.
