Skip to comments.13 Democrats Charged with Embezzling Millions from Charity
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 Obamas friend and former pastor Jeremiah God Damn America Wright.
The U.S. attorneys 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 Obamas 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.
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 have lots of practice! ! ! ! !
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.
but but but they really needed that money and had no other options............../sarc
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.
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)
In other news: AG George Jepson sicced his dog, Astro, on those crooks.
<><> 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 werent qualified to do police work. They since have been ordered to turn in their guns and badges.

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 Brothers Keeper / By Zachary A. Goldfarb, March 6, 2014
A network of (ahem) community lenders is committing to lending (?) $1 billion in support of President Obamas My Brothers 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.
Dayz al bea pardon wen Obama fogivs dem.
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”.
The very tip of a huge iceberg. We could arrest 20 per day and still be falling behind.
