Reverend Wright's daughter indicted

Ethel C. Fenig
As President Barack Obama's (D) former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr would say, "the chickens are coming home to roost."

That thought came to mind reading in the Chicago Tribune about Wright's daughter Jeri:

The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright -- the controversial former pastor to President Barack Obama -- was indicted today in an expanding federal probe of a state grant tied to a former suburban police chief.

Jeri Wright of Hazel Crest is accused of helping former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans convert fake paychecks from Evans' nonprofit to Evans' personal use, allegedly hiding money that was supposed to be used to train minority and female workers in the building trades. (snip)

Jeri Wright, 47, faces two counts of money laundering, two counts of making false statements to officers and seven counts of giving false grand jury testimony. She couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

About the same age as the Obamas, daughter Wright is not a child but a middle aged adult,  fully responsible for her alleged actions if proven true. They are not necessarily a reflection of the senior Wright; alas, many children of fine parents go astray. 

Pastor Wright might even agree.
