Head Of 'Charity' With Ties To Rep. Corrine Brown Pleads Guilty To Fraud
The head of Virginia-based One Door for Education Foundation pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, as court documents show.
The charity has close ties with U.S. Congresswoman Corrine Brown (D-FL5), who was served a subpoena in January in Jacksonville.
According to the plea deal, One Door President Carla Wiley admitted the tax-exempt, education non-profit was actually anything but. Money raised for the purported charity between 2012 and 2016 was actually a slush fund for Wiley's personal expenses.
Although Rep. Corrine Brown isn't referenced by name, the plea names a "Person A" as a public official and "Person B" as her employee.
"Person B" deposited a total of $800,000 into the One Door bank account. Money also was deposited into "Person A"'s accounts.
Brown has yet to comment.
