'Chickens Come Home to Roost' � Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Daughter Convicted on 11 Counts of Fraud

Jeri Wright and Rev. Jeremiah Wright

In September Jeri Wright, daughter of Reverend "God America" Wright, and 12 other Democrats were charged with embezzling $16 million in Federal health grants that should have gone to AIDS charities and other programs for the poor
and needy.

More than one of the defendants had direct ties to President Barack Obama.

On Friday Reverend Jeremiah Wright's daughter was found guilty of eleven counts that included money laundering and lying to federal agents.

Breitbart reported: 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.

To be sentenced on 7 July 2014.

I am surprised that it was NBC that ran the story. Obama is keeping his promise and helping all his friends with tax payer funded grants.
