Former Rep Corrine Brown gets five years

https://www.news4jax.com/news/local/...ears-in-prison

"Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown was sentenced Monday to five years in federal prison for her role in a corruption conspiracy that involved stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from a fake education charity for needy children. ...This is a sad day for the community, and I was impressed by all the outpouring of support for you," ...

Corrine ... what will the community in your gerrymandered district do without you? Oh the humanity!

She steals $800,000 from a charity and gets 5 years. The average street thug gets more time than that for sticking up a 7/11. Justice at its best.

"must pay $250 a month in restitution once she's released from prison. She was ordered to pay a total of $515,166.86 in restitution to her victims, including $62,650.99 to the Internal Revenue Service"

So basically she pays $250 a month towards a $610,000.00 debt. Gee that'll teacher her.

800k-515k-62.65k=222k. Divide by 5 years.... 44,436 per year.


If she pilfered over 800k, why is she only paying 515k?

She will probably do her time at the Federal Women's Prison at Alderson, West Virginia. She will live in a cottage with other female inmates and will be on her best behavior not to run off before her time is up.

There is no parole in the federal prison system and hasn't been since 1-1-88. So she will end up doing about four years and seven months if she doesn't wangle a time cut or gets her conviction tossed out on appeal.

And so it goes.

Dunno. why she didn't steal enough legally like congress does is pretty indicative of her stupidity. Many come in with nothing and leave multimillionaires. 5 years is still a good start. It's a substantial portion of the rest of her days.

Imagine it is 1863 and a Plantation owners son has just inherited the old mans Plantation and "staff in the photo."

It would be enough to turn the man into a Yankee.

It's always the untouchable black politicians that fall the hardest when justice catches up to them. And it's always so satisfying to see it happen when it does.

gravel like in Rambo pt. 2.

Jesse Jackson Jr, the son of old Jesse, was released from Federal Prison in 2015.

Both Jackson and his wife Sandi were convicted of numerous federal crimes including conspiracy, mail fraud, income tax evasion and other crimes.

At the time of his arrest, Jackson was a Congressman from Chicago.
He served 30 months and his wife 12 months.

He should have advised Corinne, but did not.
