Somehow we all missed this one. So far, I haven't heard this on Fox News yet.
‘Chickens Come Home to Roost’ – Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter Convicted on 11 Counts of FraudPosted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 8, 2014, 7:54 PMJeri Wright and Rev. Jeremiah Wright
In September Jeri Wright, daughter of Reverend “G** D*** America” Wright, and 12 other Democrats were charged with embezzling $16 million in Federal health grants that should have gone to AIDS charities and other programs for the poor and needy.
More than one of the defendants had direct ties to President Barack Obama.
Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s daughter was found guilty of eleven counts that included money laundering and lying to federal agents.
Breitbart reported: On Friday, a federal jury took less than two hours to convict the daughter of President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, of fraud.
Jeri Wright was found guilty of a fraud scheme that siphoned thousands of taxpayer dollars intended for a not-for-profit work and education program known as We Are Our Brother’s Keeper.
Prosecutor Timothy Bass said Jeri Wright lied “over and over” and went on a “spending spree” that included traveling to Las Vegas, buying vehicles, and remodeling her basement with cash from the money laundering scheme. She was found guilty on all counts.
“If you take and misuse government money, and then lie about it, you will be held accountable in a court of law,” said U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, Jim Lewis.The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree, does it? And the corruption with this bogus administration and their friends just goes on and on! I wish we didn't have two years of "transparency" left. At least history will not be kind to these people nor to the idjits that voted for them or followed them.
Jeri Wright is scheduled to be sentenced July 7th, 2014. Dibs on she'll get 3 hours of community service working at a Food Bank and a slap on the wrist!
