Keeping Them Honest: Disgraced veterans charity is still in business

The state of California cracked down on the charity Help Hospitalized Veterans, after finding it spending hundreds of thousands of dollars that should have been going to vets, on big time salaries and golf club memberships.

The current CEO is a disgraced former VA administrator with ethics issues of her own. Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin is Keeping Them Honest and describes the situation by saying "this is where the poor management at the VA… and very bad veteran charities intersect."
