Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter Convicted of Fraud

From Breitbart:


On Friday, a federal jury took less than two hours to convict the daughter of President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, of fraud.

Jeri Wright was found guilty of a fraud scheme that siphoned thousands of taxpayer dollars intended for a not-for-profit work and education program known as We Are Our Brother’s Keeper.

Prosecutor Timothy Bass said Jeri Wright lied “over and over” and went on a “spending spree” that included traveling to Las Vegas, buying vehicles, and remodeling her basement with cash from the money laundering scheme.

She was found guilty on all counts.

“If you take and misuse government money, and then lie about it, you will be held accountable in a court of law,” said U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, Jim Lewis.

We Are Our Brother’s Keeper, owned by former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans and her husband, scored a $1.25 million state grant that was intended to offer bricklaying and electrical training, as well as GED preparation. Wright took up to $11,000 from checks worth more than $30,0000, and $20,000 deposited back into the Evans’ accounts. Both Regina and Ronald Evans, Jr. have pleaded guilty to fraud.

Wright’s sentencing is slated for July, but she says she will “definitely” appeal.

“I didn’t do anything,” Wright said while leaving the courtroom.


She didn’t do anything wrong…multiple times. Her father, apparently too focused on shaping O’s life, failed to teach her that shopping sprees on other people’s money is a crime.

With so many charitable organizations out there it makes one wonder how many other instances of fraud there are. That man standing behind her is likely as guilty as she is – he just hasn’t gotten caught yet.

    Whaaaat!!!!!!!!! This can’t be right… it’s a lie. Democrats are honest and would never steal from a charity. They are compassionate and help the less fortunate… ask them.

    Seriously… this is part and parcel with the entirety of the left. They are always generous with other people’s money. They are also the cheapest when it comes to donations.

      A suitable punishment would be to send her to that basement she remodeled and make her listen to her father’s sermons for a few years.

    Maybe they should change the name of their group from “We Are Our Brother’s Keeper” to “We keep our Brothers’ Money.”

    Thanks for head-shaker, Kathy!

    Guess that Entitlement mentality knows no skin color or anything else. eh?

    She may be in real trouble.
    Since Rev. Wright pissed off ozero by talking bad about him, she may not get an executive pardon.
    That’ll teach them.
