Blind Item #5

In the Shady Shadyopolis department, there is a bit of a problem.  This time it's the individual who has been the numbers person for a few different organizations during their career. (We'll call this person BC, short for bean counter.) BC changes jobs every two to three years because that's basically how long it takes for the numbers to start looking funky to outsiders. Currently, BC is working for one organization involved in a celebrity situation, and also worked for one before that and one before that. One of the past organizations BC worked for was allegedly giving a very low percentage of the money it took in to it's actual cause. This was eventually noticed by the media and didn't look good to the outside world. One of BC's more recent gigs is also a clear conflict of interest with the current one, but no one seems to have noticed. Eventually maybe someone will, but by then BC will have moved on again and the money will have evaporated again too.  Those involved don't mind, because that's how they roll too.

This reeks of the Clinton Foundation.

Eric Braverman?

Jared Kushner without a doubt.

It's an accountant who does the books for charities that involve celebrities. That might be a place to start. Or just guess someone you don't like for political butthurt reasons, whatever works.

D Brinn, what do you think Kushner did before he became the orange idiot's butt wiper?

Kevin said...

Braverman works for Eric Schmidt's org but I'm not sure there's a "celebrity situation" happening there. Previously with the Clinton Foundation.

My first thought was something with the Trump Foundation mixing with Trump businesses.

You really have to go grass roots to find a charity that isn't dedicated to lining the pockets of the people running it.

Then, of course, you run into the people who are just into it for "virtue signalling" purposes. Oh Well.

Total shot in the dark for one of the past organizations, but the Wounded Warrior Project had to flush a few high-level positions after accusations of skimming off the top in the past few years.

Susan Komen Foundation has been dragged for years for not using their donations wisely. But how are we ever supposed to figure out who the beancounter is? They're never famous (probably for good reason), unless they've been charged with crimes.

he Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation.

They have been giving less than 10% to charity and declaring a huge chunk (95K) as "operating costs".

I wonder what the IRS thinks about this one.

Food for the Poor is a highly rated charity. Also, local food banks always take donations. Look for churches who have food banks and consider contributing.

Not

True & true.

I think the Trump Foundation is more like it - Trump has not put a single penny into it since 2009. He paid for the $7.00 Boy Scout fee for one of his sons when they were younger with a Foundation check. The cheap creep had to get the tax receipt for $7.00 bucks. A whole lot of other irregularities too but what else is new with Traitor Trump. Dan Ackroyd need to release a new song I'm A Con Man.....to the tune of I'm a Soul Man....nah why desecrate a good song..

At least the Clintons to point to millions of dollars going to actual charities. And I believe they have been audited how many times?

Bill "Better put some ice on that lip" Clinton & the Clinton Foundation!

Look at you, making fun of the color of someone's skin simply because you don't like them. Sad.

Hopefully you can get that TDS resolved by the time he leaves office in 2025.
