US Rep Corrine Brown, a Hillary Clinton superdelegate, stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from donors to a charity she allegedly set up to offer scholarships to poor students.
A Jacksonville jury found the 70 year-old career politician guilty of using her position in Congress to raise $800,000 for a scam charity called One Door for Education Foundation, the vast majority of which was spent on parties, lavish trips, shopping, and other personal expenses.
Jurors found Brown guilty on 18 of 22 counts against her, including charges of falsifying her taxes and congressional financial disclosure forms, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The guilty verdicts follow the conviction of Brown’s former chief of staff, Elias Simmons, who served as the charity’s president and pleaded guilty to misusing One Door funds. Simmons testified against Brown in the case, stating the former congresswoman instructed him to withdrawal the maximum of $800 from ATMs on dozens of occasions and deposit the money into Brown’s personal account.
