JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jury selection for former Congresswoman Corrine Brown will spill over into a third day.
That’s longer than originally planned. It was expected to wrap up Tuesday.
Brown faces 22 federal charges.
The government claims the former congresswoman used a fake charity, One Door for Education, as a personal slush fund.
Nearly 100 potential jurors have been considered by the judge since Monday morning.
Out of the 53 the judge asked to stay past lunch Tuesday, the group was about a half-and-half split between men and women.
