MN attorney general brings lawsuit against nonprofit, amid charges that money intended to help disadvantaged students in reality bought gym memberships, massages, and vacations.
"For years, an Eden Prairie nonprofit was praised by the community for making a difference, bringing low-income, high-achieving students from inner cities to attend the suburb’s high school. But on Thursday, the state attorney general sued A Brighter Day Foundation, accusing it of financial mismanagement and its executive director, Gardner Gay, 52, of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on personal extravagances such as gyms, shopping and travel despite the program essentially being defunct since 2012." -- Kelly Smith, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune
