Leid Stories—Charity Fraud Nets Ex-Congresswoman Corrine Brown 5 Years. Word to the Clintons?—12.05.17
A federal judge yesterday sentenced former Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Jacksonville), a 24-year congressional veteran, to five years in prison for creating a bogus charity that was to provide scholarships for poor students but instead turned it into an $800,000 slush fund for herself.
If stealing $800,000 from a so-called charity gets a former member of Congress five years in a federal prison, what would be the penalty for conviction of similar charges against a former president and a former senator/secretary of state/presidential candidate who together ran a bogus foundation that solicited and got billions of dollars allegedly to fund “charitable” projects all over the world?
Charles Ortel, a retired Wall Street banker turned financial investigator and our guide through his independent investigation of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for two years, files his latest report on what he has concluded is “the largest unprosecuted charity fraud in U.S. history.”
