The attorney for former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown (Fla.) named three members of Congress, all fellow Democrats, as potential defense witnesses for Brown's upcoming fraud trial.
Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas), Bennie Thompson (D., Miss), and Marcia Fudge, (D., Ohio) were all named on the witness list, filed Friday evening with Jacksonville, Florida's federal court, and are expected to be asked about Brown's involvement with causes she addressed in Congress, the Florida Times-Union reported over the weekend.
Jesse Jackson, University of North Florida President John Delaney, and civil rights activists Martin Luther King III are also on Brown's witness list of 33 people.
Brown is accused of enriching herself with money from the One Door for Education, a Virginia-based sham foundation that her supporters donated to. Prosecutors say the charity, a scholarship fund, collected $800,000 but only used $1,200 of that total to give out scholarships.
Brown's former chief of staff, Ronnie Simmons, pleaded guilty to fraud conspiracy charges along with the president of the foundation, Carla Wiley. Both are expected to testify against Brown in the upcoming trial.

I do see a common factor here. I wonder what the defense theory is, we all do it?
I noticed that all 3 appear to be wearing the same lapel button. Anyone know what it is ?
Well I'll be...
Thank you but I didn’t need not pictures for that racist duplicitous horseshit. That’s like asking the Devil to testify for you as a character witness.
Defense is claiming “Hillary gets away with it.”
I would hate to know that Sheila Jackson Lee was a witness on my behalf. OMG, I would just plead guilty to not have her testify.
I don't blame them.
Why is it only Black representatives that are charged for corruption for doing the same as the Clinton Foundation.
Deys all be Congrusspersons
The pin indicates they are member of the House of Representatives. The Senate also has a pin.
Racist DemocRat thugs protecting racist DemocRat thugs. How unusual. (/s)
Yup! Isn’t she the dingbat who thinks we left the Lunar (as in Moon) Rover on Mars?
BTW. Lady, you are wearing an awful wig!!!!!!
Jesse Jackson is also a witness! Why not call the Rev. AL.
Looks like "CPUSA". Not sure what that means, though....
Sheila Jackson Lee as well.
Look lak da Tar Baby took'im a terd on her HAID!!
How can you trust anything that comes out of their mouths?
When they swear to tell the truth, to whom are they swearing an oath? Especially is they deny God exists.
“I do see a common factor here. I wonder what the defense theory is, we all do it?”
They are all going to get up and compare “skin tones” before the judge rather than put their hands on the Bible.
