Veterans' Charities' Chief Grilled at Congressional Hearing

Yesterday's blog entries included a posting on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform's scheduled hearing on the charity Help Hospitalized Veterans and its President, Roger Chapin.  Today's Washington Post reports that during the three-hour hearing Committee members asked Mr. Chapin pointed questions about his and his wife's compensation and about expenses ranging from a $17,000 country club membership to millions in fundraising costs.  Committee members also asked about $100,000 paid by a separate charity, also founded by Mr. Chapin, to retired Army Gen. Tommy Franks to appear in that charity's solicitation letters.
