    Daughter of Jeremiah Wright Convicted in Fraud Scheme

    Somehow, this slipped by unnoticed.

    CHICAGO The daughter of President Barack Obama's former pastor was convicted on Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a state grant for a Chicago-area job-training program, federal prosecutors said.

    A federal jury took less than two hours to find Jeri Wright, 48, the daughter of Jeremiah Wright, guilty on all counts for her part in a fraud scheme led by a former suburban police chief and the chief's husband, according to the U.S. Attorney's office for the Central District of Illinois in Springfield.

    Looks like you didn't teach her quite well enough.

    Oh please, she's 48 years old. How is Jeremiah responsible for her?

    A former police chief was involved in this too? Bastards!

    What!? A preacher or preacher's family being caught up in scandal and immoral act? Seems to be about normal, yeah?

    The law breaking of the child of a man of the cloth is certainly not unheard of. I am surprised you didn't blame Presiident Obama for her crimes.

    It's actually very uncommon. It's the political types that use faith as a front that are most of these scandals. Those, and the megalomaniac preacher types that mostly just want to be on TV.

    Still wondering where those congregations of the Reverends Sharpton and Jackson reside.
