Democrat Shaun Brown of Virginia is running for Congress in the 2nd congressional district. Her campaign faces tough competition from Republicans, but she has a bigger issue to address first after being charged with fraud, embezzlement, and theft through her “charity” of money intended to support the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.
If the allegations are true, she stole money intended to feed needy children and faces up to 20 years in prison.
Brown is denying the claims and intends to continue running for Congress.
Not to be outdone by charges against her, she and her mother have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Virginia Department of Health. She claims the departments delayed payments over racial discrimination against them as black Americans.
Former congressional candidate Shaun Brown indicted on wire fraud and theft of government property charges
A former congressional candidate has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly stealing from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.
Shaun Brown, 58, a Democrat who ran against Rep. Scott Taylor in Virginia’s 2nd congressional district in 2016, was indicted Wednesday on charges of wire fraud and theft of government property, according to a new release from the U.S. Department of Justice.
Brown worked for JOBS Community Outreach Development Corporation, a nonprofit registered in Virginia. In 2011 and 2012, JOBS sponsored a federally-funded program aimed at feeding food-insecure children after free and reduced lunch programs ended for summer vacation.
Brown was in charge of running the program under JOBS. In 2012, Brown and other people submitted “fraudulent claims” for reimbursement, according to the release.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
