U.S. Representative Corrine Brown was recently indicted for conspiracy, mail and wire fraud, failure to make required disclosures on campaign financial disclosure forms, theft of government property, and tax violations - yet she remains a superdelegate in the Democratic primary. 

Criminal defendants have the right to the presumption of innocence until they are convicted, but someone with a pending federal criminal indictment would be turned down for most jobs involving public trust.

We need high standards for superdelegates -- who get to vote the equivalent of 10,000 citizens. We don't want that power handed out to people whose integrity is compromised.
