Angel Food Ministry Founders Indicted by Feds

We previously blogged about the governance disputes and compensation issues at Angel Food Ministries.  While the food-distributing charity quietly shut its doors several months ago, that has not ended the troubles for its founders.  The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports on the details of a federal indictment issued last week but the details of which just became public.  According to the article, the charity's founders - Joe and Linda Wingo - diverted millions of dollars to support a lavish lifestyle, including a private jet, a classic car, and real estate purchases.  Also named as defendants are Andy Wingo, the son of Joe and Linda, and Harry Michaels, a former employee.  All four defendants are expected to plead not guilty.
