Hillary SuperDelegate and friend, Rep. Corinne Brown (D-Fla.) was found guilty of tax evasion and fraud over her fraudulent college scholarship fund that, authorities allege, became a “personal slush fund” for Brown and her longtime chief of staff.

She not only stole, they say, she stole from charity.

The charges were conspiracy, mail and wire fraud, theft of government property and filing false tax returns among others.

The Orlando Sentinel reported:

Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown was found guilty in her fraud and tax evasion trial on Thursday in federal court in Jacksonville. She was found guilty of 18 out of 20 counts and faces up to 300 years in prison. She won’t get that though she could get a couple decades in jail.

She used a fake charity to live a lavish life and avoid taxes.

  • Count 1, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud: Guilty
  • Count 2, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty,
  • Count 3, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Not guilty
  • Count 4: aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 5: aiding and abetting mail fraud: Not guilty
  • Count 6, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 7, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 8, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 9, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 10, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 11, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 12, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 13, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 14, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Not guilty
  • Count 15, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Guilty
  • Count 16, aiding and abetting mail fraud: Not guilty

Corinne Brown thinks she is a victim.

“They’re trying to destroy my life,” Brown shouted as jurors in Jacksonville filed out of the courtroom for a break after she cried on the stand.

Hillary SuperDelegate and friend, Rep. Corinne Brown (D-Fla.), along with Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, the chief of staff, allegedly raised more than $800,000 for the One Door for Education scholarship fund. Only $1,200 of that total actually went to students.

Where did the rest of the $798,800 in charitable donations go, you might ask.

It went to pay for events hosted by Brown or held in Brown’s honor, including a golf tournament in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida; lavish receptions during an annual conference in Washington, D.C.; the use of a luxury box during a Beyonce concert in Washington, D.C.; and the use of a luxury box during an NFL game between the Washington Redskins and the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Washington, D.C. area, according to WaPo.

Brown decided to add lying to her criminal behavior. Claiming a “heavy heart”, she bemoaned the witch hunt against her.

Here’s something to think about: She hasn’t done a portion of what Hillary has done with her charity.

The reporters were very solicitous of her. They asked her if she was disappointed and if they made the right decision. She’s facing 300 years in prison!!!
