Corrine Brown

Via Washington Examiner:

Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla., is set to receive a federal indictment Friday stemming from her relationship with a questionable Virginia-based charity.

Though Brown, who represents Florida's 5th Congressional District, was still in Washington, D.C., Thursday afternoon, she is set to appear before a federal magistrate judge Friday afternoon in Jacksonville, according to First Coast News.

A spokesman with the Department of Justice said "we do not have any information at this time" and a spokeswoman for the FBI in Jacksonville said she could not comment.

According to News4Jax in Jacksonville, Carla Wiley, a former Brown associate, admitted to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud with a sham non-profit called the One Door for Education Foundation. Wiley, who served as the organization's president, reached a plea deal shortly after Brown was served with a subpoena by federal agents in Jacksonville in January.

Following Wiley's plea deal, the U.S. House Ethics Committee announced an investigation into Brown.

Public court documents show a scheme to defraud donors to the One Door for Education out of $800,000. The money was used to benefit individuals identified only as Person A — a public official — and Person B, an associate of Person A. It is believed Person A was Brown.
