Florida Congresswoman Indicted on Ethics Charges
U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown has been indicted on 22 federal charges, including fraud and conspiracy.
Brown, who represents the state’s 5th Congressional District, is accused of using a fake charity to solicit contributions and using those funds for personal gain. Investigators claim nearly $200,000 in charity funds were used to pay for events held by Brown and to pay taxes she owed.
If convicted, Brown could face up to 300 years in prison.
