U.S. Representative Corrine Brown (D-FL) Has Been Indicted On Federal Charges Related To Her Involvement With An Unregistered Charity In Virginia

Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL) Was Indicted On Charges "Related To Her Involvement With An Unregistered Charity In Virginia" And Will Appear In Court On Friday. "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." ("Rep. Corrine Brown To Face Federal Charges," First Coast News, 7/7/16)

While The Indictments Are Sealed, A Guilty Plea By The President Of 'One Door For Education,' Carla Wiley, "Appeared To Implicate Brown, Then Identified Only As 'Person A.'" "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." ("Rep. Corrine Brown To Face Federal Charges," First Coast News, 7/7/16)

  • "The Documents Suggest More Than $150,000 Raised By One Door Was Used Not For Charitable Purposes, But Political Events, Travel And Hotels." ("Rep. Corrine Brown To Face Federal Charges," First Coast News, 7/7/16)

"Carla Anderson Wiley, president of One Door for Education, waived being indicted and consented to filing in federal court of papers known as an information outlining the conspiracy with an unnamed public official listed in court papers as Person A. Brown fits the description of Person A in the court filing, which says Person A's photo appeared on a One Door website. Brown's photo appears in three places on the website."
