'Worst' charity for veterans run by VA employee - CNNPolitics.com


Washington (CNN)At first glance, the National Vietnam Veterans Foundation is a roaring success. According to its tax filings, the charity has received more than $29 million in donations from generous Americans from 2010 to 2014 for what it calls on its website "aiding, supporting and benefiting America's veterans and their families."
But look a little closer on those same filings and you can see that nearly all of those donations have been cycled back to telemarketers, leaving less than 2 percent for actual veterans and veterans' charitable causes.
That's why Charity Navigator, one of the nation's largest and most influential charity watchdog organizations, has given the charity a "zero" out of four stars for those same four years.
I cannot post what I think should happen to this individual.

Non profits are a heavily profitable segment of the market. I am hardly surprised by thise, and I will go ahead and say what you fear will get you in trouble.



I think the persons behind this should be raped most fouly, by gigantic penises, repeatedly, till blood is puked up, and then, after that, subject to a slow lobotomizing, while being eaten by ants.

It is so sad to hear about this sort of thing, but man is a lowly creature when his dark side asserts itself. I guess the money tempted him? :(

Less than 2 % is super low. Charities vary wildly depending n costs of employees, distribution etc, like for example a charity feeding starving kids in africa, might only have 30% of its donations to actual food, because shipping and employee costs sapped the rest of its money, but 2% there is zero justification for that.

The guy driving a Rolls Royce on a government and charity salary was a nice touch, too.

It's hard to think of people who I'd put lower on the scale of humanity than guys like this (outside the obvious - murderers, rapists, etc.) It's not just theft - he's taking advantage of people's kindness to rip them off and line his own pockets, while giving a big F YOU! to the people he claims to want to help. I'd like to bury slime like this in prison....
