Hotline complaint leads to federal audit of CA veterans' nonprofit, after allegations about falsified accounting documents and misallocation of $500K in funds.
"A Santa Ana nonprofit that provides shelter to homeless veterans could be put out of business after a federal audit found it spent more than half a million dollars in unjustified costs and overcharged for services. Veterans First must provide records explaining how it spent $530,808 in federal funds and other contributions.... The Inspector General advised the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to suspend funding for Veterans First until 'adequate controls are in place.'" -- Alejandra Molina and Keegan Kyle, the Orange County Register
