UPDATE: Ms. Long is represented by lawyer Charlene Marie Hamilton of Orange Park, Florida, a 2011 Florida Coastal School of Law graduate, whom the Florida Bar website states is currently ineligible to practice law in the State of Florida due to delinquent continuing legal education requirements (CLER). (Florida Bar No. 91130; Ms. Hamilton's license status data as of 9 PM on April 25, 2018).

A beloved local African-American civil rights hero, City of St. Augustine Planning and Zoning Board Vice Chair Deltra Lynette Long, was indicted for FEMA fraud by a federal grand jury April 19th. The charge involves slightly more than $10,022.36.
She's presumed innocent until and unless she is found guilty, but she will probably have to resign, or will be suspended from office pendente lite, under Florida Statute 112.501, municipal law on suspending board members.
Heroic Deltra Long was among the first African-Americans at St. Augustine High School. Is this a case of selective prosecution by the corrupt DONALD JOHN TRUMP regime?
Meanwhile, what has USDOJ done about indicting corrupt Republican St. Johns County High Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, the coverup of the Michelle O'Connell homicide, and corruption in St. Johns County zoning?
In response to Ms. Long's indictment, KKK-sympathzing online trolls have hollered like stuck pigs. They have been busy, busy, busy -- obnoxiously, unctuously, ululating tired trite racist tropes on local yokel publications that print such stuff -- namely, The St. Augustine Record and Historic City News.
A former federal criminal investigator, reform St. Johns County Commission Chair Ben Rich, Sr. in 2008 told Folio Weekly Magazine that St. Johns County, Florida is "one of the last bastions of the Ku Klux Klan."
It shows -- read the creepy comments (sigh) below the The St. Augustine Record and Historic City News articles, rewrites of this government press release from the Department that calls itself "Justice," headed by United States Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III (born December 24, 1946), who once joked to two UDOJ prosecutors that “I thought those guys [the Ku Klux Klan] were OK until I learned they smoked pot.”
