The daughter of Reverend Jeremiah Wright has been indicted for her involvement in a plot to misuse more than a million dollars in state grants.

Wright is the former, controversial pastor of President Obama.

Jeri Wright faces charges of money laundering and lying to the feds.

She’s accused of helping former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans skim from Evans’ non-profit job-training program.

Federal prosecutors say Wright received $28,000 in paychecks from the organization and then deposited $20,000 back into bank accounts controlled by Evans and her husband.

    "daughter of Reverend Jeremiah Wright plot to misuse more than a million dollars in state grants."
    "helping … skim from Evans’ non-profit job-training (FEDERAL GOV'T) program."
    It is not new that we hear a story of fraud with Government programs.

    Why is it that those who have ties to Obama are crooks? Look at Tony Rezko, who was paid off by the Obamas to keep his mouth shut and do time (and this excerpt is clearly only a miniscule part of what really went on I'm sure):

    "In 2005 Obama purchased a new home in the Kenwood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (which was $300,000 below the asking price but represented the highest offer on the property) on the same day that Rezko's wife, Rita Rezko, purchased the adjoining empty lot from the same sellers for the full asking price. Obama acknowledged bringing his interest in the property to Rezko's attention, but denied any coordination of offers. According to Obama, while the properties had originally been a single property, the previous owners decided to sell the land as two separate lots, but made it a condition of the sales that they be closed on the same date. Obama also stated that the properties had been on the market for months, that his offer was the better of two bids, and that Ms. Rezko's bid was matched by another offer, also of $625,000, so that she could not have purchased the property for less.

    After it had been reported in 2006 that Rezko was under federal investigation for influence-peddling, Obama purchased a 10-foot-wide strip of Ms. Rezko's property for $104,500, $60,000 above the assessed value. According to Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Mark Brown, "Rezko definitely did Obama a favor by selling him the 10-foot strip of land, making his own parcel less attractive for development." Obama acknowledges that the exchange may have created the appearance of impropriety and stated "I consider this a mistake on my part and I regret it."
    Now…who regrets voting for Obama at this point? Dummies.

    And I read that Rev Wright lives in a nearly all white gated community in Tinley Park – – in a house worth over a MILLION dollars…Why doesn't he live near his church or Roseland or Englewood??? Because he's as afraid of what and who lives there as the rest of Chicago…
    And I thought that he HATED white people????
    Can you say HYPOCRITE??????
