Former Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown had an appeal rejected Monday by an appeals court to stay out of prison while she appeals a conviction on charges related to a charity scam. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals offered up a one-sentence order denying the appeal. In December, U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan ordered Brown to prison next Tuesday to start serving a five-year sentence. Brown, a former 12-term Democratic congresswoman was convicted in May on 18 felony counts for her involvement in using contributions to the One Door for Education charity for personal expenses and events.
