Dem Congressional Candidate in Virginia Indicted on Charges of Fraud, Embezzlement, Theft
Virginia – Congressional Democrat candidate Shaun Brown, 58 has been indicted on charges of fraud, embezzlement and theft going back to 2012.
Imagine our shock; another Democrat crook.
Breitbart News reported:
Prosecutors said Brown fraudulently obtained $803,000 of government funds through her nonprofit organization, which participated in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program. The organization worked with the USDA Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to low-income children on school breaks.
Brown allegedly got the money by filing fraudulent reimbursement claims with the Virginia Department of Health.
Prosecutors said Brown and other staff members of her nonprofit told employees to skew data, such as the number of meals provided to low-income children, so the nonprofit could cash in on the extra reimbursements from the government, the Washington Postreported.
Brown chalked off the “irregularities” in the data to problems with the program.
“I want the irregularities corrected,” she said. “I want to see the program improve.”
Brown and her mother, Jenever, who co-founded the nonprofit, filed a $10 million lawsuit against the USDA, the Virginia Department of Health, and others this month for allegedly discriminating against African-Americans, delaying payments, and falsifying reimbursements and claims.
Of course Brown denies any wrongdoing and plans to fight the charges.
Brown also announced in July she plans to run again for a Congressional seat in 2018, taking on Republican Rep. Scott Taylor.
Another Democrat being accused of fraud an embezzlement! You don’t say!
