Political Party Matters Corrine Brown Poster Child Of Rot

 When it comes to corruption in government the only color is important is green
Matters not whether you are Red, Blue or Indy the need for money you cannot wean
 Rep. Corrine Brown is the new poster child joining the hall of political shame
A glaring example of why Washington does not work and without term limits corruption we will never tame
A Congresswoman of 23 years on the side of the Blue aisle
Living proof that the first inch chink in the armor for integrity leads to corruption taking a mile
Under the guise of charity participating so alleged in a very large fraud
Public service should not be a career where cutting corners to stay in office seems to be the norm allowed
More and more states have term limits to force office holders out
Yet despite the intentions they move on to a different office as lobbyists their ethics try to rout
If a House member could serve only three terms and a Senator only two
No need to always be on the prowl for the mother’s milk that soon curdles into the witches’ brew
She may be guilty, she may be not and she deserves her day in court
But these professional politicians entrenched, above us in their minds means we and our democracy are doomed to come up short.
