Good Grief: Democrat Corrine Brown Claims Persecution Because She’s Black

She also manages to compare her ordeal to the recent tragedies

(Daily Caller) Rep. Corrine Brown, a Democratic congresswoman currently facing a bevy of corruption charges, claimed Monday that she is being persecuted by malicious prosecutors and likened her ordeal to the murder of police in Dallas.

Brown was indicted last week on a host of fraud charges that could send her to prison for years. She is accused of helping create a bogus charity, which raised over $800,000 for the ostensible purpose of funding scholarships. Brown and her chief of staff are accused of using the money as a personal piggy bank, repeatedly redirecting it to Brown’s own bank accounts so she could pay off back taxes or pay for events honoring herself. Meanwhile, just $1,200 in scholarships were awarded.

Here’s her open letter


Last week was very rough.

Two black men were needlessly gunned down by police; 5 Dallas police officers were slain by a demented man, and on Friday I had to appear in federal court.

Yes, she actually compared going to court to face charges to those other incidents.

My heart is heavy, but my spirit remains unbroken. Being indicted is very scary. Yet my conscience is clear because I’m innocent. I’m not the first black elected official to be persecuted and, sad to say, I won’t be the last.

“Persecuted.” Because she’s Black. And people wonder why racial divisions are getting worse when you have a politian caught with her hand in the cookie jar claiming she’s being persecuted because she’s Black. Back to the Daily Caller

It’s not the only bizarre claim Brown has made about her indictment. In a recent statement to reporters, she suggested that federal officials may have been able to halt the Orlando nightclub shooting if they hadn’t been investigating her.

Remember, Democrats like Brown tend to blast law enforcement when they investigate Muslims who’ve had contact with Muslim extremists.

But, come on, Corrine, woman up. Take your medicine. If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.
