Rep. Corrine Brown Indicted for Using Scholarship Fund Money to Pay for Beyoncé Concert

Congressional Black Caucus members are broke. That explains why Rep. Elijah Cummings’ daughter is driving for Lyft  and why Rep. Corrine Brown allegedly committed fraud to get money for a Beyoncé’ concert. And broke politicians are destined to become corrupt politicians.

According to Reuters, Congresswoman Corrine Brown of Florida and her chief of staff were indicted on Friday for running a scam involving a children’s charity.

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,” said Assistant Attorney General Caldwell.  “Corruption erodes the public’s trust in our entire system of representative government.  One of the department’s most important responsibilities is to root out corruption at all levels of government and to bring wrongdoers to justice.”


“Corrupt public officials undermine the integrity of our government and violate the public’s trust,” said Michelle S. Klimt, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Jacksonville Division.  “That is why public corruption is the FBI’s top criminal priority.  It is incredibly disappointing that an elected official, who took an oath year after year to serve others, would exploit the needs of children and abuse the charitable hearts of constituents to advance her own personal and political agendas and deliver them with virtually nothing.”

And from the indictment:


The 24-count indictment charges Brown and Elias Simmons with participating in a conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, theft of government property, filing false tax returns and other crimes.

    They’re no better than Hillary Clinton!
    Doesn’t look like they were spending the money on necessities, either.
