The news keeps getting worse for Rep. Corrine Brown. The House of Representatives has officially announced a committee has been established to investigate Congresswoman Brown for a series of allegations of improper conduct. The main allegations appear related to improperly solicited charitable donations and improper use of campaign funds for personal purposes.
The House Committee on Ethics unanimously voted March 16 to investigate the allegations against Brown. The House of Representatives has now formed an investigative subcommittee to look into whether Brown conspired with others in connection with fraudulent activity, used official resources for impermissible non-official purposes, failed to comply with tax laws and made false statements, and/or failed to make required disclosures, to the House of Representatives and Federal Election Commission, according to documents.
Just last week, Rep. Brown requested contributions for help with her legal battles — specifically for her redistricting lawsuit, that is. She is still fighting against Florida’s new congressional district map. Now, the Congresswoman will be fighting another battle in what looks to be shaping up as a tough re-election year for her.
Earlier this month, WFTV News uncovered new information as testimony began in a federal probe of charity connected to Rep. Corrine Brown.
