Shaun Brown: Going to play another race card in this case?

From Fox News: A Democrat running for a U.S. House seat in Virginia has been indicted on charges of fraud, embezzlement and theft in connection with events that allegedly occurred in 2012.

Shaun Brown, 58, appeared in a Norfolk courtroom last week and denied any wrongdoing, the Daily Press of Newport News, Va., reported. She said she intends to fight the charges and be exonerated, the report said.

Brown is next scheduled to appear in court Jan. 12 and will plead not guilty, her attorney, James Ellenson, told the Daily Press.

Prosecutors said Brown received about $803,000 via her nonprofit organization as a participant in a U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.

They alleged that Brown acquired funds by filing false reimbursement claims with the Virginia Department of Health. Prosecutors said Brown and others told employees to inflate the figures for the number of meals served to low-income children, and the nonprofit would the pocket the extra reimbursements, the Washington Post reported.

According to the Daily Press, Brown acknowledged that the program had “irregularities” that she hoped to see fixed. “I want the irregularities corrected,” she said. “I want to see the program improve.”

Earlier in December, Brown filed a suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Virginia Department of Health and others, alleging discrimination against African-Americans, delayed payments, falsified reimbursements and claims for reimbursement, the Daily Press reported.

She and her mother, Jenever Brown, who co-founded the nonprofit, are seeking $10 million in damages, the report said.

In 2016, Brown ran against now-U.S. Rep. Scott W. Taylor, a Republican, for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District seat and lost by 23 points, the Washington Post reported.

In July, Brown told the Virginian-Pilot that she intended to run for the seat again in 2018.

  2. Let me see:

    There was no father in her household?
    Her ancestors were improperly removed from Africa to VA in 1619?
    $803K is her share of reparations from slavery?

    • Dr Eowyn . . . After taking note of how many Democrats, in particular African American political persons, have been charged in “financial irregularities” it comes as no surprise than there is yet another person to join their ranks. I read somewhere that Maxine Waters holds the title of the most corrupt, among those who have seats in the Senate or Congress. Perhaps this is just a segway to a powerful, lucrative career.

  6. She’s probably spending a bundle on hiring lawyers to find loop holes she can squeeze through to avoid Prison. Maybe they can help her “reinterpret” the Criminal Code to “legalize” her behavior.

  7. BTW, when is this Muller/Russia collusion coming to an end? It keeps going and going and going, with no results. They are running my pockets out of “juice” and I see no end to it while my taxes are fattening the pockets of those in charge. Collusion is not a crime, what is a crime is my money going somewhere and I don’t who’s taking it.

    • It will NEVER end unless Trump ends it. I know that many here don’t agree with me, but I’m OK with that. He needs to do something about this.

      In the first place, there is NOTHING wrong with talking to the Russians. Indeed, if he didn’t, he wouldn’t be doing his job. “Colluding” is a loaded word. The “implication” is that, somehow, they kept the Hildabeast from becoming Queen.

      That is patently ridiculous, and any sane person would reject it out of hand. I find it totally ironic that “The Left” complained for decades about “McCarthyism” and now they lead the charge. What’s changed. Think about it……. Well, Communism isn’t the ruling ideology of Russia anymore. All this proves is that “The Left” are Communists.

  9. “…her mother, Jenever Brown…”

    Probably related to Corrine BROWN of Florida, another hefty black “mama” who also had a “NON-PROFIT” org that she bilked from for her own personal luxurious lifestyle (wigs, jewelry, tons of makeup, nails, clothes, cash, etc.)

    Who raised these pathetic women with no morals & no conscience? Thieves! Sick of their whining & self-victimization.

  10. She would do the black caucus proud. Not sure how she thinks she will be cleared, when she gave the order and she herself filed false forms.
