Democrat State Rep Convicted Of Taking Bribes; Sentenced To 23 Months Probation

Philadelphia state representative, Vanessa Lowery Brown, got off light with 23-month probation after taking bribes.

It was an undercover sting that corraled the representative who showed remorse after being caught. Isn’t that how it usually goes. Politicians are always sorry when they get caught but never remorseful when they are doing the crime.

Michael Sprow, Dauphin County prosecutor, said that Brown deserved jail time because she accepted $3,000 inside her state Capitol office. She knew she was going wrong and she decided to tread on her integrity by going through with this crime.

A state representative convicted of taking $4,000 in bribes from a confidential informant received probation Friday from a judge who was critical of the undercover investigation that snared her.

Democratic Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown, of Philadelphia, was sentenced to 23 months of probation and ordered to repay the money to the state attorney general’s office.

Neither Lowery Brown nor her defense attorney would say whether she intended to resign immediately. She was unopposed and won a sixth term in the Nov. 6 election, but officials say her felony bribery conviction makes her ineligible under the state constitution to hold office.

“I’m deeply sorry and extremely remorseful that my actions have taken me from my community,” Lowery Brown told Judge Scott Evans.

God was looking down on Brown during this sentencing because most judges do not look favorably on politicians taking bribes and jail time is the result, so she needs to show up in church for the next few years to thank her lucky stars.
