Jacksonville.com is reporting that former Congresswoman Corrine Brown 
was convicted on 18 or 22 accounts. The mainstream media is largely 
ignoring this story.
A jury convicted former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown today of financial crimes

that could put her in prison for years, potentially the rest of her life.

The verdict came three days after closing arguments in a trial where

Brown was painted as living the high life on cash that aides secretly

deposited in her bank account after passing it through other accounts.

...

Jurors were told the brash 70-year-old Democratic icon, who spent 24

years in Congress before losing reelection last year, received $141,000

in untraceable cash over several years through sources including the

sham charity One Door for Education and her Friends of Corrine Brown

campaign committee.

An FBI accountant testified Brown, who earned around $175,000 a year

as a member of Congress with a pension from the Florida Legislature,

spent an average of $1,438 per month more than her reported income.

Fox News dug a bit deeper into her scheme:
The indictment came after an investigation into the charity One Door for

Education Foundation Inc., which federal prosecutors say was purported

to give scholarships to poor students but instead filled the coffers of Brown

and her associates.

Earlier this year, One Door President Carla Wiley pleaded guilty to one

count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud after it as determined that she

had deposited $800,000 into the foundation's account over four years.

Over that time, federal prosecutors say it gave one scholarship for $1,000

and that Wiley transferred herself tens of thousands of dollars.

"Congresswoman Brown and her chief of staff 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

earlier this year.

Why isn't this all over the news you might ask? Look no further than the
 "D" behind her name. If this was a Republican there would be wall-to-wall
