    Federal prosecutors Friday charged the head of an obscure Virginia organization with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, outlining a years-long scheme to defraud donors out of about $800,000 by using the power and influence of an unnamed public official. The facts presented in court papers point to U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown as that official.

    In a 5-2 opinion, the Florida Supreme Court Wednesday approved a map for the 27 congressional districts submitted not by the Florida Legislature, but by the Florida League of Women Voters and other members of a liberal coalition and approved by Circuit Judge Terry Lewis in October. See the high court's decison here. The resulting map approved Wednesday is basically the work of Democratic operatives. Justice Ricky Polston, one of the dissenters, criticized the decision because Judge Lewis relied on a map drawn by a redistricting consultant with ties to Democrats and was designed to intentionally pack Republicans into districts. That...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The political careers of several members of Congress — including a Republican seeking to become the next U.S. House speaker — could come to an abrupt halt under a sweeping overhaul of Florida's electoral map. Florida Circuit Judge Terry Lewis on Friday recommended new boundaries for the state's 27 congressional districts, some of which would make it nearly impossible for U.S. Rep. Dan Webster — one of the hard-line conservatives who pushed John Boehner to resign as speaker and then turned on Boehner's No. 2, Kevin McCarthy — to win re-election from his current central Florida...

    Democrats scrambled Wednesday to tamp down anger among veterans groups who objected to the party’s choice of Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida as ranking member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee. Compounding the anger was the Democratic leadership’s treatment of the sole veteran among the panel’s Democrats, who was briefly ousted from the committee on a technicality and thus made ineligible to seek to become ranking member. As a result, Rep. Brown was the only Democrat seeking to serve as party leader on the committee that has been a watchdog for the Veterans Affairs Department’s wait-time scandal and the implementation...

    A memorable moment from last night’s House hearing courtesy of Florida’s Corrine Brown, whose congressional legacy is already secure. I’ll say this for her: It takes guts to double down on your faith in the VA after yesterday’s IG report, at a moment when more prominent Democrats like Al Franken and Jeanne Shaheen are running in terror from Shinseki. Then again, it’s a fine line between “guts” and “reckless stupidity.” Remember this story from a few weeks ago?

    The confirmations of two African-American judicial candidates in Florida are being held up by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Congressional Black Caucus leaders are demanding action for what they call negligence and obstruction on the part of the senator. Brian Davis, a nominee for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District, and William Thomas, a candidate for the U.S District Court for the Southern District, both made it through Florida’s Federal Judicial Nominating Commission, which routinely makes recommendations to state senators who meet the candidates and send letters of initial approval to the White House.

    ORLANDO -- More than 400,000 people have signed online petitions calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The department is looking into whether those charges need to be filed. Both NAACP President Ben Jealous and NAACP Chairman Roslyn Brock are speaking out in support of the continued federal investigating Zimmerman for violating Martin’s civil rights. Meanwhile, News 13 discussed the case with Florida Fifth District Congressman Corrine Brown at the 104th annual NAACP convention Sunday, which is being held this week at the Orange County Convention Center....

    In a dramatic end to a case that has unwinded for over a year, George Zimmerman was found not guilty of any charges related to the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was shot by Zimmerman.The case wasn't just a fascination for the broader American public, but for politicians as well. This was especially true after President Obama said in March, 2012 that, if he had a son, "he'd look like Trayvon." On Saturday night, the reactions from D.C. started coming in soon after the not-guilty verdict was reached.The first came from Rep. Corrine Brown, who represents...

    U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown has made herself one of the central figures in the George Zimmerman case. The Democratic congresswoman got involved when the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, became national news. Soon after, the Department of Justice launched its probe into whether Sanford police mishandled the case, and Sanford police Chief Bill Lee stepped aside. Earlier this month, Brown — whose district spans from Jacksonville into Central Florida — got involved in another criminal case. She attended the sentencing of Marissa Alexander, a black defendant from Jacksonville who Brown said was unfairly sentenced to 20 years...

Yesterday and this morning Florida Reps. Frederica Wilson (D) and Corrine Brown (D) spoke out against Zimmerman's actions. "Mr. Speaker, I am tired of burying young black boys," Wilson said on the floor Tuesday. "I am tired of watching them suffer at the hands of those who fear them and despise them." "I want a thorough investigation," Brown said on CNN Wednesday morning. "Personally, I would have liked...

Corrine Brown’s office promised “a complimentary coupon” for a meal at an Orlando restaurant to “the first 350 to vote” at an early voting site on Friday, sparking the latest charge in the contentious race in Florida’s Third Congressional District. The Brown campaign also used a taped phone message from the candidate to push the offer to people in her district, in which she asks people to “early vote and receive a coupon to have lunch with us at Mama Nems Restaurant.” While Brown’s campaign manager said the Democratic congresswoman did nothing wrong, two...

    Democrat tricks would be comical, if they weren’t so blatantly farcical.At this time in our nation’s history, we need people with ingenuity. So when a congresswoman with little name recognition decides to run for US Senate while simultaneously running for reelection to her House seat, that kind of creative thinking is worth noticing. Sure she dropped out after amassing hundreds of thousands in campaign funds, but you’ve just got to applaud that outside of the box thinking, the kind of thinking that makes sane people pause the nation over. Still, one cannot help but wonder why Corrine Brown has stopped...

    WASHINGTON – Undaunted by Kofi Annan's rejection of a plan for United Nations monitoring of the U.S. presidential elections this fall, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-TX, is taking her case to Secretary of State Colin Powell. Johnson has urgently asked Powell to make an official request that the U.N. provide observers for the Nov. 2 elections in the United States to "ensure free and fair elections." Thirteen Democratic congressmen, led by Johnson, sent a letter July 8 to the U.N. general secretary requesting the presence of U.N. representatives in every county of the country during the voting process and...

    U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown of Jacksonville was rebuked and risked being forced into silence by House members Thursday after suggesting Republican members "stole the election" in 2000. In a seemingly rare vote, Washington officials said, the House decided, 219-187, to strike the "stole the election" statement from the congressional record. But they decided not to ban Brown from the House debate that day, as rules allow when members' reputations are impugned. Afterward, Brown told the Times-Union she stood by her statements. She at one point said, "I would have clarified it." Asked how, she paused and replied, "The truth of...

    We have seen another inappropriate outburst from the liberal left of the Democratic Party come and go without a word of outrage from Democratic leadership. US Representative Corrine Brown (D-FL) issued an incredibly racist statement in anger during a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill between administration officials and members of Congress regarding the Haitian crisis. This outburst so stunned those at the meeting that condemnation of Brown's statement has been streaming into the public forum.
