Are the Boy Scouts having issues? According to the Atlanta Jrl Constitution here, an audit is examining the reporting of membership in the Boy Scouts. The AJC article, although speaking mainly to the Atlanta area, also notes that:
"The FBI is looking into allegations of membership inflation involving the Greater Alabama Council, which governs troops in the northeastern part of that state. Membership rolls in Tampa, Dallas and Oregon also have been questioned."
If the investigation finds evidence of inflated reporting to "boost financial support," will DOJ be looking to prosecute the Boy Scouts and will the investigation be of individuals or the organization? Is there a local United States Attorney who would be willing to present evidence to a grand jury to investigate these allegations?
