2016 Contribution Letter

Hello Supporters:

For over 23 years, I have had the pleasure of serving in the U.S. House of Representatives. Being a Member of Congress has been one of the greatest blessings in my life and I thank God daily for the privilege of being your voice in Washington, DC.
During my entire political career, I have fought racism, injustice and advocated for individuals who normally get left behind. It should come as no surprise that some took offense to my efforts to stand up for you.
They redrew my District in order to make it harder for me to be re-elected. Then sadly, on July 8, 2016, I was falsely accused by the Federal government. It is not a coincidence that these charges were filed immediately prior to my August 30th Primary Election, which I ultimately lost. I am a woman of integrity and I categorically deny the charges.
When you are born you get a birth certificate, and when you die you get a death certificate. The dash on your tombstone reflects what you have done in between to make this world a better place. I have done the best I could whether it was conducting town hall meetings, foreclosure workshops or job fairs that I have held for over 20 years, which over 100,000 attended.
I am fighting the Department of Justice, which has unlimited resources. They have smeared my good name. They are trying to take my freedom. I am asking for your help to fight these false charges. On this website, you can make a donation to my legal defense fund. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and God bless you!
Sincerely,

Congresswoman Corrine Brown
