NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia lied about donating more than $700,000 to her campaign. The Virginian-Pilot reports Shaun Brown is set to stand trial this week in U.S. District Court on charges she stole at least $439,000 from a program established to feed needy children. Prosecutors told her last week that they plan to tell the jury about other matters, including issues with her current campaign's finance reports.
