Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Daughter Indicted for Alleged Money Laundering
By LEE FERRAN and BRIAN ROSS | ABC News The daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Obama's controversial former pastor, has been accused of laundering money in an alleged $1.25 million fraud led by an ex-police chief in Illinois.
Jeri L. Wright, 47, was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday for allegedly accepting $28,000 from former police chief Regina Evans and her husband, ex-police officer Ronald Evans, for Wright's supposed work related to the Evanses' not-for-profit program called We Are Our Brother's Keeper. Approximately $20,000 of that money, however, found its way back into bank accounts controlled by the Evanses, prosecutors said.
According to a release from the Department of Justice, Wright was playing a part in a scheme by the Evanses to misuse a $1.25 million state grant that had been awarded to the not-for-profit program in 2009.
We Are Our Brother's Keeper was supposed to spend the money on training up to 40 participants in bricklaying and electrical work at a Regal Theater also owned by the Evanses, but the indictment alleges that "little, if any, of the training provided in the grant agreement was ever completed."

Sounds more like We Are The Money Keepers to me.
Wright’s chickens coming home to roost.
Like father like daughter.
Wonder when the Wright’s start blaming Whitey?
Don’t worry, O will take care of that.
when did they stop?
He brung her up real good. It’s the Chicago way!
Leftists making money of leftist causes - call me shocked!
The White Man’s greed runs a world in need!
Or something like that....
1.25 million for 40 people. That is over $30k a piece for training. Even if they hadn't stolen it , that would have been a crime.
This is how government grants work I bet, always more than anyone would imagine. Its going into someones pockets
The evil troika
Remember the media frenzy when “Sarah Palin’s former Son-in-Law’s Mother arrested on drug charges” was in the headlines for days?
It got more ink than Benghazi.
Oh, yeah...should have clarified that....” when do they blame Whitey on this incident”....because they already blamed Whitey non everything else
