The Washington Post reports that four senators (Sens. Charles E. Grassley (Iowa), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.) and John Cornyn (Tex.)) have sent a letter to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America asking about the organizations' expenses for salaries and travel. The organization, which reported a $13 million loss on its 2008 Form 990, paid chief executive officer, Roxanne Spillett, nearly $1 million in current and deferred compensation. According to The Nonprofit Quarterly, the Senators may hold up a bill that would give the organization $425 million in federal funding unless they get more information about the expenses.
