JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Congresswoman Corrine Brown raised more than $1 million for her 2010 re-election campaign but one agency says she short-changed them.
"Corinne Brown and her campaign committees owe our clients, who raised over half a million dollars for her, approximately $44 thousand," said Martin Lobel, the attorney representing Berger Hirschberg Strategies, a major Democratic fundraising firm.
Both parties agree, the fundraising firm began working for Brown when she was thinking of running for Senate in 2009.
They entered into a contract in July 2009.
Corrine Brown, her Chief of Staff, and Friends of Corrine Brown are now being told to pay up for underpaid and unpaid fees to the tune of $44,495.
"Congresswoman Brown is not obligated to the defendants as they claim," said Brown's attorney, Frederick Cooke, Jr.
