Losers of the week in Florida politics



Only losers this week

Corrine Brown

Something stinks in Jacksonville. The Democratic congresswoman was indicted on fraud charges Friday, having allegedly used a charity to pull in hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations that supposedly were for scholarships and computers for students. Not the first time she has faced serious ethical questions. Is Brown's long career headed for an end?

David Rivera

A Tallahassee appeals court upheld an ethics censure against the former legislator, a Miami Republican who is running again. Rivera faces a nearly $58,000 fine for failing to disclose income and double-billing taxpayers for travel by accepting a state reimbursement for a trip paid for by his political campaign.
