A judge revoked the bail of Jeri Wright who was convicted last March of 11 corruption counts, including money laundering and lying to a grand jury, in a case tied to a state grant.
Jeri Wright is the daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright who helped mold President Barack Obama.
Her bail was revoked because she appears to have gone out and committed a similar crime to the one for which she was awaiting sentencing.
I guess she didn’t learn anything from her father’s fabulous preaching on “God Damn America” and “Jewish lawyers”. Who would have thought that his comparing Jews of Jesus’ time to “Klansmen” and describing Jesus as a racial provocateur wouldn’t mold a young girl into an upright woman?
Listen to what he told his “baby daughter”:
What is really ironic is the $1.25 million state grant she skimmed in the first case against her was for Barack Obama’s new program “We Are Our Brother’s Keeper.” She and her husband took thousands for themselves.
They pleaded guilty to the fraud scheme.
The grant agreement was supposed to provide bricklaying and electrical pre-apprenticeship training and GED preparation at the Regal Theater, another entity owned by the couple. Little, if any, of the training provided in the grant agreement was ever completed, according to prosecutors.
She lied to law enforcement and gave false testimony to the grand jury.
She will be sentenced for the money laundering case March 20th.
Her bail was revoked Monday because she participated in a ghost payrolling scheme at a private company in Indiana. The judge found probable cause.
She is accused of taking more than $8,000 as a temporary worker at Berry Plastics but didn’t do any work. She was involved in the scheme with others.
She presented some sketchy information to show she did do some work but it appeared to be a complete lie.
