Report: Florida Democrat to Face Federal Charges
JON REID | JULY 7, 2016
A local Florida TV station reports that Rep. Corrine Brown has been indicted on federal charges likely related to allegations that the Florida Democrat benefitted financially from an unregistered charity.
The Florida Democrat is set to appear before a federal magistrate judge on Friday afternoon, according to First Coast News.
In March, House Ethics Committee members said they would defer to the Justice Department on their investigation of “allegations that she may have conspired with other persons in connection with fraudulent activity, improperly solicited charitable donations, used campaign funds for personal purposes, used official resources for impermissible non-official purposes, failed to comply with tax laws, and made false statements, and/or failed to make required disclosures, to the House of Representatives and Federal Election Commission.”
