Sleazy Fmr Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida sentenced to 5 years for fraud

Is the term "sleazy Democrat" redundant? 
In any event Corrine Brown finally got what was coming to her because she had been crooked for years.  And she not alone by a long shot in the Congressional Black Caucus.     

AOL News reports former U.S. Representative Corrine Brown of Florida was sentenced on Monday to five years in prison for her role in helping raise more than $800,000 for a bogus charity that was used as a slush fund, federal court officials said.

Brown, 71, was convicted in May on 18 counts of participating in a conspiracy involving a fraudulent education charity, concealing material facts required on financial disclosure forms and filing false tax returns.

Brown, a Democrat from Jacksonville who served 24 years in Congress, lost her re-election bid last year after being indicted.
