Anyone that has paid attention to how the mainstream media discussed both the Democrats and the Republicans can notice that there is a difference in the coverage. For Republicans, the coverage is insanely negative, like the Republicans have never had a good idea in their lives.
Meanwhile, the coverage of certain Democrats is reported on like they have never had a bad idea ever. Everything that they do is awesome and amazing and anyone that opposes them is wrong. Essentially, there is nothing that a Democrat can do that would portray any negative media coverage.
However, as everyone knows, there are Democrats that have some of the worst ideas imaginable and yet the mainstream media turns a blind eye to it. This biased coverage has been going on for quite some time now, and in the meantime there are some juicy stories that have been either ignored or given very little attention.
For example, a former Democratic representative from Florida is now facing a heavy prison sentence and expensive fines due to the crimes that she has committed. Former United States Representative Corrine Brown was indicted by the Middle District of Florida’s U.S. Attorney’s office back in July of 2016.
Allegedly, she stole money from a fund that was used to provide scholarships to needy schoolchildren and use the money for herself. That is a heinous crime indeed. Should she be convicted on all counts, she would face up to 357 years in prison and a nearly $5 million fine.
Ultimately Brown was charged with 24 counts. Included in those charges are “conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, multiple counts of mail and wire fraud, concealing material facts on required financial disclosure forms, theft of government property, obstruction of the due administration of the internal revenue laws, and filing false tax returns.”
All of those were listed on a news release about the indictment. It didn’t stop there as the release then explained how Brown and her chief of staff, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, engaged in a plot to defraud donors to a supposedly non-profit charity titled One Door For Education – Amy Anderson Scholarship Fund. They took more than $800,000 from the fund.
That money was going to be used for college scholarships and computers for schools in need. They took nearly $1 million that was going to be used to educate the next generation and used it for their selfish needs.
The charity was never officially registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a result of that, a good portion of the money that was raised ended up in the private bank accounts of both Brown and Simmons. It was either in their accounts or being used to fund other events for their personal benefit.
This is undoubtedly a big blow to the Democrats as Brown was a HUGE name in the Democratic Party for years. She partied and fundraised with House leader Nancy Pelosi, went aboard Air Force One with former President Barack Obama, and even voted for Hillary Clinton as a superdelegate at the Democratic National Convention.
However Brown lost her re-election bid when she lost in the August Democrat primary. As a result, she became an ex-congresswoman the second the new Congress was sworn in. More bad news awaits her, as other individuals that were named have already pleaded guilty to those charges.
This isn’t the first time that Brown has broken the law to help herself. The Florida Times-Union had published an extensive list in 2016 that detailed the other illegal actions she made over the years, all the way back to 1990. She was then named to the House of Representatives in 1992 and survived several charges and ethics violations investigations… until now that is.
Another member of the Democratic Party is going to face a lengthy prison sentence, as she is facing over 350 years in prison. Essentially, the 70-year-old is going to be in jail for the rest of her life. It’s a fitting punishment for someone that stole money that was supposed to go to college scholarships and new equipment for schools.
This is worth asking: Was it worth it?
Then again, Democrats are not always the type of people to bow down to ethics. Democrats in the Senate were doing all that they could to stop the confirmation of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. Despite the fact that there was no way that they could have stopped it, they didn’t leave the Senate floor, protesting all night.
They aren’t thinking either. Despite the fact that the United States just had an election, Senators are already looking ahead to the 2018-midterm elections. Democrats are worried because of the devastating loss they experienced this year. 2018 doesn’t look good either, as 23 Democrats are up for re-election, and if 2016 was any indication of what is to come, they will lose a vast majority of those seats.
Share this article to show everyone that despite what the mainstream media shows in their biased reporting, the Democrats are not as squeaky clean as they want you to believe. A former Democratic Congresswoman is facing up to 357 years in jail for stealing money for a college fund and supplies for schoolchildren. Will the media bother to cover this, or will they continue to focus on Republicans? Don’t hold your breath.
