Jeremiah Wright’s daugher Jeri indicted for money laundering


Jeremiah Wright’s daughter, Jeri and her friends may be getting Go to Jail card soon. (smh)

Why in the world do people believe they can do whatever they want with Uncle Sams money.  Too many times, non-profit organizations fail to recognize that GOV money is the worst kind of money to accept, they will  come after you hard if there is anything funny going on.

Here is the story as reported by The Examiner:

Jeri Wright, the daughter of President Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright, was indicted on charges of money laundering and lying to federal authorities on Wednesday, helping a fraudulent nonprofit misuse state grant money.

Wright was part of a scheme run by the former police chief of an Illinois city, Regina Evans, and her husband Ronald, whose nonprofit, We Are Our Brother’s Keeper, was awarded a $1.25 million state grant in 2009.

Wright, a close friend of the couple, allegedly received several checks totaling about $28,000 that were supposedly for work related to the grant, according to the Justice Department. About $20,000 of that money was deposited back into accounts belonging to the Evanses.

The grant was supposed to pay for about 40 people to receive bricklaying and electrical training and GED preparation at a Regal Theater also owned by the Evanses. But according to the DOJ, the indictment alleges that little, if any, of the training was ever completed.

The money laundering count carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison, and the other charges carry a penalty of up to five years.

It’s a good thing, Obama is not running for office again in 2016, cause I am sure his opposition would try to connect this incident with him and Jeremiah Wright (smh).
