Disgraced Democrat Corrine Brown Running For Office Again After Serving Prison Time For Fraud

Now she is out of jail and she is trying to run for office again.

Some people are addicted to the perks of public life and apparently, Brown is one of them.

Former Rep. Corrine Brown, who represented the Jacksonville area in Congress for 24 years before being defeated in the 2016 Democratic primary by Rep. Al Lawson, announced her decision to mount a comeback bid in Florida’s newly redrawn 10th Congressional District, offering details in a press release posted on her campaign website.

Shortly after Brown left Congress, she was convicted of 18 federal crimes, including wire fraud, mail fraud, filing false tax returns, and conspiracy, in a case stemming from a sham charity that prosecutors said Brown used as a slush fund to pay for vacations, lavish parties, and personal expenses.

The charity, One Door Education, allegedly received over $830,000 in contributions to fund scholarships for low-income students but paid out only $1,200, with much of the remainder being deposited into Brown’s personal bank accounts.

The former congresswoman was sentenced to five years in federal prison in December 2017 and served more than two years of her sentence before being released early in April 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns.

Maybe she should try getting a real job.

The people of Florida wouldn’t really reelect this woman, would they?
