    Go to the story link. There`s a link there that takes you to a list of 50 worst offenders. It was a surprise to me that sheriff, narcotic officers and firefighters associations were among the worst (based on total % paid to marketeers), some paying statistically zero to their actual charity causes.

    My friend`s dad was one of the attorneys who sued the ass off the United Way many, many years ago. So greedy & shady. I have been very careful about where I donate anything ever since then.

    And all of a sudden capital punishment doesn`t seem so bad. Disgusting maggots using the suffering of other to provoke charity in some and then enrich themselves. i think we found some volunteers for chemo therapy research right here.

    Nothing new. Charity scam.
    No different than the widow who hits up 10 different charities for the death for the same husband.

    Well now I know who NOT to give to. This is an excellent case for a class action suit. All the donors should demand their money back.

    And the IRS sent letters to me and talked back and forth on the phone because they thought I shorted them $400 (which I just wrote another check for with my honest and hard earned money). Whereas, we`ve got people like this.

    A strong argument for hell is that there people who deserve to go there when they die.

    in the US, 99% of the charities (unless otherwise stated or nonprofit) donate less than 2% to the actual cause thanks to the loopholes. No law against it = 100% legal and very profitable!

    Just following the example of our liberal government. What could be wrong with that? If these people did not for Obama they at least like Obama`s example...

    Wow. Just did a google search about charities. How disappointing. I know it takes money to run a charity, but even some of the Catholic charities I thought were top notch apparently are not so top notch. How heart-breaking. Some are just legalized thievery.
