13 Democrats Charged with Embezzling Millions from Charity
Eagle Rising ^ | 10 March 2014 | Onan Coca

Posted on 03/11/2014 3:38:36 AM PDT by dontreadthis

Leave it to the sleazy down-home Democrats of the Midwest to steal more than $16 Million from various charities, including one for those suffering from AIDS. Also not so surprising, several of the scammers have ties to President Barack Obama, including one who happens to be related to President Obama’s friend and former pastor Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty.

Two of them have ties to President Barack Obama. One is the daughter of his controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Another was chief of staff to Obama’s longtime friend Eric E. Whitaker when Whitaker was Illinois’ public health chief.

Look, be fair, we can’t judge the criminal behavior of a criminal organization by the criminal actions of a few of its members.

Doc Hurley's daughter accused of stealing from foundation

The daughter of a man who started a Hartford foundation to help students go to college may have embezzled $600,000, according to the state attorney general.

Muriel Hurley, daughter of Doc Hurley, has been the subject of an investigation since December.

That's when Attorney General George Jepsen said the annual Doc Hurley Basketball Tournament was canceled because the fund had run out of money.

"Muriel Hurley systematically looted the foundation," Jepsen told Eyewitness News. "We have identified $200,000 that she used for personal use things like hair salons, doggie daycare, Victoria's Secret."

Jepsen also said there was no longer a board of directors or any meetings related to the foundation. He said that no one was watching Muriel Hurley.

_________________________________________

Doc died [at the age of 92] shortly after this news broke....perhaps of a broken heart. That his own daughter would betray all that he lived for.

I’m (pleasantly) surprised these crimes are even prosecuted anymore. Newark, NJ’s mayor Sharpe James was sent to prison after he left office, while the government could have put him away decades earlier; the “soft bigotry of lowered expectations” prevented a lot of prosecutions of this type of crime. Still rampant in our ghettoes, but at least we’re seeing some exposure of it.

If this country ever gets back on track there will be Obama era
scandals, scamdals, and lawlessness trickling out until the youngest
crop of current FReepers is long in their graves. And the stuff that
this DOJ is busy burying right now must take a special department.

Oh Gee, Surprize, Surprize!

Actually, I am a bit bemused that someone in the entirely corrupt Department of Justice DARED to investigate any one in the Chicago power structure.

But, if you parse the article, the fact that the Illinois States Attorney was the one driving this indictment, rather than the Feds, is explained.

That the Ministry of Truth has chosen to ignore this is only standard procedure, and would again justify a Final Solution to The Democrat Problem.

-——for those suffering from AIDS. -——

Do people suffer from AIDS?

Is not AIDS a condition of Honor, an outward sign of personal dedication to single minded purpose??

Is it just me or does it seem like all crime in this country is committed by blacks?

Surely they can’t be that corrupt can they?

(I know that all crime is committed by democrats, after all, lying, cheating, killing, and stealing is what they do)

<><> Rev 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 (above) 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.

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

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 2011,

<><> it was earlier reported that Illinois AG's office is suing the 2011 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 (in Chicago, this is called "redistribution of income").

<><> Most recently, Evans came under fire from city officials for overseeing a 2011 part-time police program where 10 part-time police officers were hired last year. A news report 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.

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 entire purpose of government grants is that some of the money finds its way into the pocket of the man in charge of granting.

It seems that way sometimes, and with certain types of crime like entitlement fraud, but trust me...TRASH COMES IN EVERY COLOR, INCLUDING WHITE. (Yes I'm white, for the record.)

I think most of these “charities” are just ATM’s for the people who run them. It’s almost expected. When Rev Henry Lyons used his office as head of a Baptist denomination to get rich, people responded with “It wasn’t our money he used”.

John, you paint with a broad brush....however, from my personal experience in education.....every single *person of color*, in an administrative position, should be rigorously audited.

Mostly people with no apparent qualifications that were hired as *affirmative action* candidates, in administrative positions have misused Title I funds. Some for personal gain. They know Washington does not audit thoroughly and they can get away with all kinds of embezzlement and misuse. Tax free.

Put your neck out and become a *whistle blower* and you are called a racist by the PTB.

Confiscation of Retirement Accounts

So, what happens if you’re not willing to invest in Obama’s MyRa? How does the government get the funding it needs to continue financing and growing the debt? The answer: FORCE you to make your retirement funds accessible to the government.

If you do some research on US Bill “HB5337,” you will find the plan to nationalize retirement wealth. On May 6, 2012 Lauren Schmitz, a research analyst at the Bernard L Schwartz Center for Economic Analyst (SCEPA), introduced HB5337. This 401(k)/IRA de-privatization is the brainchild of Teresa Ghilarducci, whom through funding from the White House and the Ford & Rockefeller Foundations engineered a new “Regulatory & Tax Incentive.” The purpose is to force Americans to convert their Retirement Accounts into Government Managed accounts.

The government will nationalize retirement accounts like IRAs, 401Ks, pensions, 403Bs, etc. so that you will be forced to use a portion of your retirement wealth to purchase U.S. government debt – debt that will ultimately default, as it is not possible to sustain our astronomical debt nor the deficits that create it.

This plan to nationalize private 401K and IRA retirement accounts is being deceptively publicized as the government protecting the public against business failings or state bankruptcies. But the reality is, your cash, your retirement funds, your bank deposits and your investments are at huge risk of being confiscated by the government through some contrived reason or another.

when I try to source HB5337 (http://legiscan.com/US/bill/HB5337/2011 for example),
I get “Amends the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to suspend temporarily the duty on mixtures comprising poly(methyl methacrylate) and zinc acetate.”

The Democrat Party was corrupt from its inception. Andrew Jackson gave us the spoils systems. Remember NYC’s Boss Tweed? Tamany Hall, a symbol of the city’s corruption at the time, was NYC Democrat Party headquarters. Chicago’s Democrat machine has been mobbed up and linked to Commie and leftist organizations for years. Urban Democrat machines have their hands in every til and are involved in every kind of dirty-dealing, enforced by both police forces or criminal gangs.
