New York AG Opens Inquiry Into Controversial Charity
Forbes reports that the New York State attorney general's office has begun a formal inquiry into the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes Foundation, the Ossining, N.Y.-based veterans charity run by "nonprofit entrepreneur" Roger Chapin that has been a focus of unflattering congressional hearings and media coverage. According to Forbes, the subpoena seeks such things as "paperwork involving the coalition's claim that, during 2006, it distributed 1.5 million sports-scores-only telephone calling cards to the military and other nonprofits. The Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance reported in January that the USO of Metropolitan Washington never received the 1 million cards the coalition said had been sent its way."
