Citizens Demand Term Limits After Corrine Brown Indictment

 

U.S. Term LimitsWashington, D.C. – U.S. Term Limits (USTL), the leader of the citizen movement to term limit elected officials, today called for swift action from Congress on a constitutional amendment to limit members’ terms.

“The corruption cauldron of Washington, D.C. is boiling over, and it’s harming our country more every day,” said U.S. Term Limits President Philip Blumel. “Congress must propose a term limits amendment immediately to restore confidence in this broken institution.”

The statement comes in the wake of a federal indictment against Rep. Corrine Brown, a 12-term Florida congresswoman who stands accused of using a phony education charity as her own slush fund. She is charged with mail fraud, wire fraud, concealing facts on financial disclosure forms, theft of government property, obstruction and filing false tax returns.

Kara Soar Base, Iraq – In Iraq, the Kara Soar Base feels like a different world; only a few hours away lies the modern city of Erbil, with sky rises and brand name car dealerships.

Yet, here, in the farmland of northern Iraq at Kara Soar, in the searing heat, through the thick dust smoke can be seen rising from battles raging near the Tigris River and missiles heard launching nearby as smoke clouds on the horizons confirm a successful strike.

A world U.S. Soldiers face daily in support of the Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve mission.
