Corrine Brown Witness List Features Reps. Fudge, Thompson and

The federal corruption trial of former Florida Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) features several members of the U.S. House she has served with for decades. 

A witness list from Brown’s attorney features Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio).  Former Rep. Brown’s daughter, lobbyist Shantrel Brown, is also on the witness list.  

Brown’s trial begins in Jacksonville, Fla. on April 24. 

Federal prosecutors allege that Brown used funds from a not for profit for personal use.  The organization, One Door, appeared to be run primarily by Brown’s former longtime Chief of Staff, Ronnie Simmons.  Simmons made a deal with the government on February 7, 2017.
