$25 million settlement in veterans charity case

The New York State Attorney General  has  reached a nearly $25 million settlement with one of the nation's biggest direct-mail companies. AC360's Drew Griffin has been reporting on the national charity Quadriga Art and the veterans foundation since the fall of 2010, broadcasting a series of reports that showed the charity sending practically all of the millions it raised back to Quadriga as payment for the direct-mail campaign. Almost none of the cash left over went to veterans, the CNN investigation found. Griffin has the exclusive details.

    Does anyone know what the Vietnam Veterans of America does or a living ? One thing they do is acquire Federal Funds to pay salaries. I am a Vietnam Veteran... I doubt you will find any needy Vietnam Veterans in Santa Barbara California. It's worth a look into how Funds for Veterans are being squandered. http://www.vvachapter218.org/
