Convicted Felon Running for Congress
Former Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL) has announced that she’s running for Congress again after her conviction on 18 counts stemming from fraud was overturned last year.
Although Brown’s conviction was overturned, she just pleaded guilty to one count of fraud last month as part of a plea deal. A federal judge sentenced Brown to time served — roughly two years and eight months.
“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 press 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.”
Also vying for Florida’s 10th District seat is civil rights lawyer Natalie Jackson, who served as Brown’s co-counsel during her trial.
“I helped the people of Orlando when the Pulse shooting happened. I helped when the hurricanes hit. I worked with the community by coordinating relief aid after an earthquake devastated Haiti. And I led the fight when Trayvon Martin was viciously gunned down,” Brown said.
“I carry the people of Orlando in my heart wherever I go. And they have responded with an outcry of support and prayer that has touched my heart. To them I say, thank you for your continued prayers and support! I will continue to fight to make sure your voice is heard. To God be the glory!”
Hell there’s a criminal in the WH now.
RTFUS, RTFU: SO WHAT? the government is overrun by them now, so what does one more make a difference. All you do is check Santa’s list and pick a NITWIT backed Mayor, or DA, all in same mixing bowl. Have a great vote! Could be your last, as you know, at least legally from 6ft under you can’t get another one, but we know that can be too. Who is going to knock for you to answer? Oh we for sure know who won’t , Other FELONS!
If this criminal is elected in Orlando, they deserve what they get, but Orlando, Orange county has a majority of Dem/Communists running it. Val Demmings is running against Rubio and she has an ad saying defunding the police is crazy, but she is a Dem/Communist and will do whatever they want her to do and they lie with every breath. You can not trust them.
Considering that a large percentage of Congress is populated with career criminals, she has impeccable credentials.
Not quite as bad as the successful charges of discrimination against Donald Trump who marked applications of prospective black renters in his developments so they would be denied. Whites were promised all white neighborhoods. He was fined but continued this practice. I do not know why a black person would vote for him knowing his racist past,
your comment has been debunked by fact checkers and the U.S. Congress!
FL dimms used to have Alcee Hastings as a rep. He was IMPEACHED as a judge but voters thought he was great!
you have GOT to be kidding me, if people vote for her, we are lost and doomed as America
