The 56-year-old, who represented Luton South, faces 15 charges of false accounting and six of using a false instrument.
It is alleged that she ''flipped'' her designated second home, making claims for properties in London, Luton and Southampton.
Prosecutors also claim that she submitted forged invoices.
Moran appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court today, speaking only to confirm her name and date of birth.
Wearing a dark suit, she could be heard crying in the dock before the hearing.
