Red Cross clams up about missing $300 million
I call it 'missing' because I was there after Hurricane Sandy.
I didn't see anything but Red Cross photo ops - and neither did any one of the dozens of people I talked to all over the disaster zone.
Now propublica.org is asking them how they spent the $300 million they raised to 'help' after Hurricane Sandy and the Red Cross "prefers not to say."
Blood sucking vampires
Whenever there is a tragedy, the American Red Cross revs up its fundraising machines.
The public is inundated with slick television commercials and the money pours in.
So much money that very often the American Red Cross receives 70% of ALL the donations made by the public to help the victims in any given high profile event.
Where does all that money go?
Be prepared to be shocked.
Here's how bad it is:
"Just how badly does the American Red Cross want to keep secret how it raised and spent over $300 million after Hurricane Sandy?
The charity has hired a fancy law firm to fight a public request we filed with New York state, arguing that information about its Sandy activities is a "trade secret."
The Red Cross' "trade secret" argument has persuaded the state to redact some material, though it's not clear yet how much since the documents haven't yet been released."
