MN worked with nonprofit to subsidize heating for low-income citizens; instead, Community Action of Minneapolis "misspent more than $1m".
"In December 2011, Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman and Community Action of Minneapolis CEO Bill Davis stood side-by-side at a press conference to plead for more federal money to help low-income people pay their heating bills. As the pair made their case in front of the cameras, however, staffers inside the Commerce Department were struggling to figure out how Davis' nonprofit had already misspent more than $1 million in energy funds. Commerce analysts had grown increasingly alarmed that money meant to aid the poor was going to people who were not eligible to receive it." -- Tom Scheck, MPRNews.com
