Yet another Democrat representative has been indicted for doing what Democrat representatives do best: use their office to vacuum cash for personal use. I suppose, in all fairness, this activity is not limited to Democrat members of the House of Representatives. This is pretty much Hillary Clinton’s career path, too.

Fifth District Congresswoman Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) has been indicted on charges likely related to her involvement with an unregistered charity in Virginia and appear in Jacksonville Federal Court Friday, multiple sources have confirmed to First Coast News.

First Coast News has learned Brown will appear before a federal magistrate judge Friday afternoon. She returned to Jacksonville Thursday evening from Washington, D.C. and said that she would be in court Friday at 1:30 p.m.

The indictments are sealed, and details are sketchy, but may stem from Brown’s involvement in a group called “One Door for Education,” which advertised itself as a charity, but was never a registered nonprofit. One Door’s president Carla Wiley entered a guilty plea of Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud charges in early March (see below).

That plea appeared to implicate Brown, then identified only as “Person A,” alleging she benefited personally from funds raised by One Door. The documents described “Person A” as a public official who was often used in promotional materials for the group. Brown’s photo appeared on the website for the group before it was taken down.

Politically, this is really a null set. Though the House will be a little bit better for detonating an indictment under the corrupt butt of this lackluster timeserver, Florida 5 is something like a Democrat-plus-30 stronghold. Even if she steps down, something that is by no means certain, her replacement will be yet another machine Democrat who will immediately embark on a rampage of graft and corruption.
