So the CBS Nightly news has been doing 'exposes' on charities who seem to be funding themselves more than helping the folks they are supposed to be. Tonight's target was the Wounded Warrior Project whose administrative costs are along the lines of 95%, and only 5% going to the wounded warriors. This was pretty common knowledge, I think and was covered by a CBS affiliate in April of 2015 so it's not like this was news-news.
On CBS This Morning yesterday, was a story about PACs scamming donors. The PAC they investigated was called the Conservative StrikeForce.
Okay, these stories are true. That said, I'm wondering when they are going to start hitting some Liberal charities and PACs. Let's just say I am skeptical that they will do so.
Honestly, I think that this is an effort to undermine Middle America's confidence in their charities and, most especially, in giving money to conservative causes and political action committees. The mainstream media is wanting to dry up funds to conservative causes to make it easier for their candidates and causes.
Yes, I do feel like I need to put my tin foil hat on.... almost. But I don't think I am wrong.
