Thoughts From an Underground Insider
by Dennis Crenshaw
I am covering this because it seems the MSM doesn’t see a story here. Her trial on 22 counts of fraud will start this Monday April 24, 2019 in the Federal Court House here in Jacksonville, Florida.
Corrine Brown has been “representing” the district I live in here in Jacksonville Florida, first as a Member of the Florida House of Representatives from the 17th district November 6, 1984 – November 3, 1992, then as a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida‘s 5th district from January 3, 1993 – January 3, 2017.
Even though she has been involved in scandal after scandal she has always gotten away with her shenanigans because she is a black woman Democrat in a mostly black district. Maxine Waters doesn’t hold a candle to Corrine Brown. And I can prove that with this posting and videos.
First from her page on Wikipedia:
- National Baptist Convention check
In 1998, Brown was questioned by the House Ethics Committee about receiving a $10,000 check from National Baptist Convention leader, and long-time associate, Henry Lyons. Brown confirmed receiving the check and denied she had used the money improperly. Brown said that she had taken the check and converted it into another check made out to Pameron Bus Tours to pay for transportation to a rally she organized in Tallahassee. She said that she didn’t have to report the money, and that she had been cleared, explaining the rally was to protest the reorganization of her district lines, and she did not use it for herself.
The Federal Election Commission admonished Brown and Brown’s former campaign treasurer quit after he discovered that his name had been forged on her campaign reports. The staffer alleged to have forged the treasurer’s signature stayed with Brown and as of 1998 was her chief of staff.
- Congressional Accountability Project
On June 9, 1998, the Congressional Accountability Project voted to conduct a formal inquiry regarding Brown. The Project called for the U.S. House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct to determine whether Brown had violated House Rule 10. One of the complaints was that Brown’s adult daughter, Shantrel Brown, had received a luxury automobile as a gift from an agent of a Gambian millionaire named Foutanga Sissoko. Sissoko, a friend of Congresswoman Brown, had been imprisoned in Miami after pleading guilty to charges of bribing a customs officer. Brown had worked to secure his release, pressuring U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno to deport Sissoko back to his homeland as an alternative to continued incarceration. The Project held this violated the House gift rule, but Brown denied she had acted improperly. The congressional subcommittee investigating Brown found insufficient evidence to issue a Statement of Alleged Violation, but said she had acted with poor judgment in connection with Sissoko.
- 2000 election
In July 2004 Brown was rebuked by the House of Representatives after she referred to the disputed 2000 presidential election in Florida as a “coup d’état”. This comment came during floor debate over HR-4818, which would have provided for international monitoring of the 2004 U.S. presidential election.
- Felony fraud indictment
In July 2016, Corinne Brown and her chief of staff, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, pleaded not guilty to a 22 count federal indictment in relation to a non-profit charity, One Door for Education Foundation Inc. The indictment included charges of participating in a conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, multiple counts of mail and wire fraud, concealing material facts on required financial disclosure forms, theft of government property, obstruction of the due administration of the internal revenue laws, and filing false tax returns.Federal prosecutors allege the charity was to give scholarships to underprivileged students, but instead acted as the personal slush fund for Brown and her associates. The indictment says that Brown and Simmons “filled the coffers of Brown and her associates” with One Door donations for their personal and professional benefit, totaling $800,000, much of which was deposited in cash to Brown’s personal bank accounts. Corrine and her associate pleaded not guilty and were released on a $50,000 bond. After the hearing, Corrine predicted that she would be cleared at trial. In accordance with House of Representatives rules, Brown stated she was temporarily stepping down as a ranking member of the House Committee on Veteran’s Affairs. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called the charges against Brown “deeply saddening” and said she was right to step down from the Veterans’ Affairs committee.
During her 2009–2010 campaign, Corrine Brown raised up to $966,669 from fundraising. Brown’s top contributors included CSX Corporation, a railroad-based freight transportation company with its headquarters in Jacksonville, FL; Carnival Corp., cruise line operator; Picerne Real Estate Group; Union Pacific Corp and Berkshire Hathaway, which owns BNSF Railway. Brown’s top industry contributors included those railroads, lawyers/farm firms, real estate, transportation unions, and sea transportation. Top sectors in Brown’s 2009–2010 campaign included Transportation, Lawyers & Lobbyists, Labor, Construction, Finance/Insurance/Real Estate. During her campaigning, the largest source of funds was given by large individual companies, which accounted for 54% of the contributions, and PAC contributions, which accounted for 36%. Sources of funds also included small individual contributions, self-financing on Brown’s part and other sources. (End of Wikipedia report)
Wonder why all of these transportation companies gave so much money to her campaign? Just maybe if we look at the committees she was on we can figure that one out:
- Subcommittee on Aviation
- Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation
- Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials (Ranking Member)
- Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment
Before we get into the latest charges for which she starts her trial this coming Monday lets look at some of her “work.” Meet Corrine Brown.
