Senator Charles Grassley from Iowa has commenced an inquiry to the Wounded Warrior Project that gives a deadline of April 4th to produce a series of documents.
"A week after the top executives of the Wounded Warrior Project were fired amid accusations of lavish spending, an influential senator on a committee that oversees nonprofit organizations is asking for a detailed accounting by the country’s largest veterans’ charity.
"In a letter Friday to the Wounded Warrior Project, Senator Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican who sits on the Finance Committee, said that recent news media reports had raised questions about the charity’s treatment of employees and its spending. An article in The New York Times described the charity’s work environment as hostile and detailed lavish spending that included millions on staff retreats, food and drinks. “If true, these allegations are a breach of faith with donors, taxpayers, and, more importantly, veterans,” the letter said."--Dave Philipps, The New York Times
