Florida Rep. Corrine Brown — a Democrat, in case you weren’t sure — was indicted last week on 24 federal counts of public corruption. And she’s really taking it hard, the poor dear:

More from WFTV:
Brown likened her situation to the recent police shooting deaths of two black men in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and St. Paul, Minnesota, and the deaths of five Dallas police officers during a protest march Thursday night.
“Last week was very rough,” Brown wrote. “Two black men were needlessly gunned down by police; five Dallas police officers were slain by a demented man; and on Friday I had to appear in federal court.”
Calling the indictment “very scary,” Brown said her “spirit remains unbroken.”
Her spirit remains unbroken? How nice for her. Too bad the same can’t be said for her moral fiber.

Bonus shame for playing the race card, Corrine:
“My conscience is clear because I’m innocent,” she wrote. “I’m not the first black elected official to be persecuted, and, sad to say, I won’t be the last.”
