REPORT: Obama fundraiser accused of ‘lavish’ misspending at nonprofit that filed for bankruptcy
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
A former Obama fundraiser and fired head of a Los Angeles-based nonprofit has been accused of using his organization’s funds to make political donations to major Democratic candidates, pay his property taxes and buy home office furniture, according to court documents filed this week.
In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing in a federal court in California, the anti-poverty nonprofit Youth Policy Institute (YPI) reportedly accuses its former chief executive, Dixon Slingerland, of misusing the organization’s money on a number of things – including paying for his children’s private tutoring, padding his wife’s pensions, paying for “lavish” entertainment and making “partisan political contributions” to federal campaign committees. That last activity would be a violation of federal tax law.
The article goes on to state the following:
YPI said in the filing that it had already sent Slingerland a letter demanding that he repay more than $1.7 million. The organization fired Slingerland in September after it “concluded that Mr. Slingerland had been misusing YPI’s funds for his personal use over an extended period of time, and at least since 2014,” court filings reportedly say.
The report states that the Los Angeles Times first reported on the allegations.
Fox News also provided the following details: “Slingerland was also heavily involved in raising money for former President Barack Obama’s election campaigns in both 2008 and 2012, with The New York Times reporting that he had raised more than $743,000.”
The LA Times reported this: “Slingerland, who ran the nonprofit for 23 years, had a salary of around $400,000 when he was fired. During his tenure, he forged ties with local, state and federal politicians, raising campaign money and working with them to secure taxpayer funding for his organization.”
