They need to investigate the lot of 'em. Maxine Waters, Alcee Hastings, anyone in the racist Black Caucus (a nest of racist snakes). It's like they can't help themselves once they see all that .gov money fruit, ripe for the picking.

If Corrine Brown gets 5-7 years, at her age it's almost a death sentence. I saw a pic of her and her entourage coming out of the courthouse (it seemed). Al Sharpton was st her side.

She won't do one day in the slammer. [-X

Mark my words, wrong color and wrong party. Anyone really think they will put an old black democrat female in prison? :ham'r Hell, they had an old white democrat female dead to rights and she skated. These people can get away with murder and it never gets to a grand jury let alone prison. Brown just took some money, whoop de shiite ! Thats kid stuff as far as the media is concerned so nothing will happen and this will be back page news by monday.

It don't fit the narrative.

Sharpton was with her trying to find out if she had any cash stashed that she needed "watched" until the air clears. [smilie=001.gif]

They put Jesse Jackson Jr in prison for pretty much the same thing... I say she gets some time...probably not much as she deserves...but some..

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/jesse- ... -sentence/
The Illinois Democrat, who represented the 2nd Congressional District, was sentenced originally to 30 months. His time actually served was cut most likely because of good behavior and completion of a substance-abuse program.

In all Jackson will have served 23 months. Jackson entered a federal prison in Butner, North Carolina, on Oct. 29, 2013. He was transferred to a minimum security section of a prison complex in Montgomery, Alabama on April 4, 2014. He was transferred to the Baltimore halfway house on March 26.

Well the conniving witch got her time, 5 years. I can't believe they are letting her hang around this long without locking her up. Any regular citizen would be behind bars already.

I guess since she was a dedicated public servant (throwing up a little in the back of my throat) for so long they are cutting her some slack. Almost 2 months from sentencing until doing her time, sheesh!

Has a new lawyer and is going to appeal again. She is going to do anything she can to drag this out.

If I'm not mistaken, a federal judge just denied her bail while she appeals. So she will be off to prison. I'd guess it's likely the W Va "Club Fed..." where Martha Stewart went...

I knew this bitch 30 years ago

She tried to get me fired and probably would have if she had not already had a reputation with the office.
She didn't like it when I responded with "Hello" to her "How are you" greeting, or my defense of it.

Not gonna happen. How do you think those who are supposed to prosecute got their jobs? As a friend told me many years ago, ''Have you ever tried to wash one hand?''

I knew Corrine and several of her staff very well - she actually offered me money through attaching a bill one time... I turned it down, and never got the full details... but I am sure it would have been easy...

Courts reject ex-U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown's bids to stay out of prison


http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/pol ... story.html

Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown can’t stay free while she appeals felony convictions and she can’t delay reporting to prison, a pair of orders from separate federal courts said Monday.

Brown’s motion to stay free was rejected by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta the same day that the judge in Jacksonville who sentenced Brown to five years behind bars turned down a request to delay the start of her sentence by another month.

Brown, a Democrat who represented parts of Orlando, remains scheduled to enter prison by noon Jan. 29, the same deadline set for the founder of One Door for Education, a bogus charity Brown was convicted of using to enrich herself.

“This court has already fully considered the issue,” U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan in Jacksonville wrote in his order. In short, he wrote later, “Ms. Brown is asking the wrong court. She should direct her request to the Eleventh Circuit.”

That court issued its own two-sentence order Monday that denied a motion she filed to remain free pending appeal. The second sentence told court clerks to treat any motion to reconsider as a non-emergency.

Brown was convicted in May of 18 felonies, most involving fraud or tax crimes.

The bulk of the charges involved misuse of money that Brown, a 12-term congresswoman, helped raise for One Door, which received more than $800,000 over several years but spent little on actual charitable projects.

One Door’s president, Carla Wiley, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and testified at Brown’s trial. She’s scheduled to start serving a 21-month sentence Jan. 29. Brown’s former chief of staff, Ronnie Simmons, also pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge involving One Door and an unrelated theft from the government, and began serving a four-year sentence this month.

After Brown’s sentencing, the Jacksonville Democrat hired an appeals attorney, William Mallory Kent, who has been working to flesh out a challenge to her conviction. In a filing Monday, Kent told Corrigan there were serious, complex issues to consider in the appeal and that after assessing them “it is not inconceivable that this court … well might rescind its previous order” setting Brown’s report date.

Kent wrote that more than one ministerial alliance, whom he didn’t name, planned to argue on Brown’s behalf before the appeals court. He wrote that the alliances would be represented by Charles Truncale, an attorney who accompanied Brown to a Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration in Clay County last week.

That's why she didn't throw a hissy fit about going to jail, she'll have all kinds of money stockpile when she gets out

A felony conviction used to void federal pension rights. Apparently now they can keep what they put into their own retirement savings fund but lose any government pension part that came after the act's passage.

That hasn't helped the Florida Legislature. it just gave lobbyists and an unelected horde of semi-permanent staff more power. [smilie=014.gif]
