Rules for me, rules for thee

Run of the mill fraud/embezzlement story, right?

In all, prosecutors are alleging a total of $16 million in fraud involving state health or commerce department grants and contracts.

Defendant: Jeri L. Wright, daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Filed: April 10, 2013

Charges: Money laundering and making a false statement before a grand jury

Details: Wright, described as a “close associate and friend” of Regina and Ronald Evans, is accused of aiding the Evanses in their money-laundering scheme.

Not so fast. Who is Jeri Wright? Just the daughter of Jerimiah "God Damn America" Wright. Spiritual mentor to Barack Obama. See this one on the news did you? Me neither. Odd thing that.

Let's not forget this guy is Chelsea Clinton's father in law. I don't believe people should be responsible for the crimes committed by their family members but I do think this would be wall to wall national news if this were, oh I don't know, Jenna Bush.

Indeed, if it were Jenna Bush's father-in-law, the conspiracy theorists would crawl out from under their rocks and scream about the "Bush crime family" or some such nonsense.
