"Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Daughter Indicted for Alleged Money Laundering"
Jeri L. Wright, 47, was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday for allegedly accepting $28,000 from former police chief Regina Evans and her husband, ex-police officer Ronald Evans, for Wright's supposed work related to the Evanses' not-for-profit program called We Are Our Brother's Keeper. Approximately $20,000 of that money, however, found its way back into bank accounts controlled by the Evanses, prosecutors said.
According to a release from the Department of Justice, Wright was playing a part in a scheme by the Evanses to misuse a $1.25 million state grant that had been awarded to the not-for-profit program in 2009.
We Are Our Brother's Keeper was supposed to spend the money on training up to 40 participants in bricklaying and electrical work at a Regal Theater also owned by the Evanses, but the indictment alleges that "little, if any, of the training provided in the grant agreement was ever completed."
The Evanses have been charged with more than 10 fraud-related counts. In addition to the alleged money laundering, Wright stands accused of making false statements to federal law enforcement officers and lying to a grand jury. If convicted, Wright could face potentially decades in prison."

Heaven knows that the world of organized religion regularly 'sees' its share of gross illegalities and immoralities.
But this article about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's daughter, Jeri L. Wright, got our attention.
You will recall that Wright is a major proponent of the 'Black Liberation Theology' and its follow-up 'white privilege programs', popular not only in his Chicago church, but here, as well, in the progressive liberal United Church of Christ And Unitarian Universalist churches in Connecticut and elsewhere.
The 'theme' of these 'paradigms' is not to 'unite', but to 'demonize and divide'.
Worse , the ultimate goal is to 'dominate' those who were former oppressors.
As if that is a suitable solution, any more than 'white supremacism' is a suitable solution.
People need to get real!
Any movement set upon deliberately shredding and unraveling the racial fabric of the United States has historically been doomed to failure ever since the Civil War.
Somehow or another, Americans have managed to have the ''triumph of spirit' that allowed for this.
But I see a 'change' in the air. I see a country in all kinds of distress. And I see a complete 'system overload' on 'false dialogues on race'.
What might have started as reasonable dialogue has, thanks to the deadening overkill of 'political correctness', dissolved into silent resentment, fear, deceit and the bearing of false witness.
'Race communications' have fallen by the 'wayside' in the looming shadow of threats of terrorism, financial collapse and other 'quality-of-life horrors' so endemic in the United States today.
Worse, 'race conversations' that remain are being further obfuscated by those injecting 'Islamist' considerations them, in this day and age where everything revolves around 'terrorism'.
I say Americans need to 'reboot and reengage' on the race issue. We need to not 'give up' on discussions of race, because we are witnessing a decline in interracial civility, the likes of which we haven't seen in a long time.
But we have to keep it 'real', as I said. And the way to do that is to disregard all vestiges of the bogus 'political correctness' that have brought us to where we are today.
We can and should rationally observe the actions of those who abuse their 'positions of power' on ALL sides of the race debate, learn from them and vow to never 'do the same', ourselves.
We can 'say we've had enough' and choose to work for 'good', but only if we throw off the mantle of false speech, false pride and false doctrine. If you can't play this way, this is not for you, of course.
For all others, especially for those of the Judeo-Christian tradition and for those who do not purely wish to 'dominate others', I suggest this:
Let us subscribe to 'God Liberation Theology' first.
It's worth a shot.
God Bless You
With Love In Christ,
Rev. Barbara Sexton
