SPRINGFIELD—The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former minister, was convicted by a federal jury Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-based job-training program.

Jeri Wright said she would "definitely" appeal the verdict in U.S. District Court, which found her guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury.

I wonder if this will get as much ink as “Sarah Palin’s former Son-in-laws Mother arrested for drug possession”

Is there anyone around Obama that has ever actually worked for a living, or do they all just get grants, no interest loans, and consulting fees resulting from their political forgeries?

$1,200,000.00 to train 40 people how to lay bricks and pull wire? That's $30,000 per trainee. Two weeks as a laborer for a mason, and two weeks as an electrician's helper pays you about $12.00 per hour. I'm not quite sure why the government would pay grants to a third party do what the trades already are structured to do?

Oh wait..........Never mind!

The Democrats did that a long time ago. It’s the Chicago Way, statewide.

Govtfrauditis----the cancer eating away Chicago.

Wright's daughter was pilfering from a $1.25 million state grant which financed a not-for-profit work and education program called "We Are Our Brother's Keeper," owned by Regina Evans, former police chief of Country Club Hills, and her husband, Ronald Evans Jr.

6/8/13 Regina Evans pleaded guilty to fraud and money laundering charges related to the misuse of a $1.25 million state grant to a non-profit organization she ran with her husband, Ronald Evans Jr.

==========================================

BACKSTORY SCAMARAMA---October 11, 2011 ----Police Chief Regina Evans Resigns

COUNTRY CLUB HILLS, Ill. (CBSLOCAL.COM) Country Club Hills Mayor said that negotiations were underway to clear the way for the resignation of police Chief Regina Evans, in office for about two years,

<><> Regina Evans was on disability leave since August,

<><> it was earlier reported is that Illinois AG's office is suing a nonprofit group run by Regina Evans over its handling of state job training grant worth more than $500,000.

<><> Evans also signed off on invoices for a controversial summer camp where the campers — including the children of some aldermen who voted for it — got paid to attend.

<><> Most recently, Evans came under fire from city officials for overseeing a part-time police program where 10 part-time police officers were hired last year. A SouthtownStar report about the officers revealed that many of the part-time officers had questionable backgrounds, and a city report on the program showed the officers weren’t qualified to do police work. They since have been ordered to turn in their guns and badges.

The SouthtownStar contributed to this report, via the Sun-Times Media Wire.

====================================

SO THAT'S WHERE OBOBO GOT THE IDEA FOR HIS LATEST SCAM? ---"My Brother's Keeper" rears its ugly head in Washington.

WASH/POST---Community lenders’ network commits to lend $1 billion in support of Obama's ‘My Brother’s Keeper’ / By Zachary A. Goldfarb, March 6, 2014

A network of (ahem) community lenders is committing to lending (?) $1 billion in support of President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative that aims to boost the life chances of young African and Hispanic men.

===================================================

Yawn.....just goes to show: there's always a sap-happy Lib/Prog willing to say they're "for" their fellow-man---and hoping to make a buck on it.

The RICO laws should be invoked to deal with this “congregation” of crooks.

“The state of Israel is an illegal, genocidal place… to equate Judaism with the state of Israel is to equate Christianity with [rapper] Flavor Flav.”

Conclusion: Clearly, the jury was racist.

Prediction: A Presidential pardon will be forthcoming.

Not in the sense of WORK as I know it.
