The Freedom Alliance’s Weak, Empty “Response”; More to Come on This Fraud

By Debbie Schlussel

As you know, yesterday I posted an extensive expose on the fraud that is the Freedom Alliance and the associated Freedom Concerts pimped by Sean Hannity on hard-working Americans who pay their money, thinking they are helping severely wounded troops and funding college scholarships for the children of wounded soldiers. As I predicted, Freedom Alliance finally “responded” with a non-response that was more lies and obfuscation.  You only need to look at their tax forms, which I posted in my expose, to know what’s going on without the filter of their lens.

The Sham Continues & the Shallow Wagons Circle

The liars and frauds at Freedom Alliance want to keep the gravy train going for them and their cronies. So, instead of actually refuting a single fact, they make claims without any hard evidence . . . because they don’t have any. None of the circle-the-wagons, fraudulent “conservatives” defending this group have dared post the tax forms because they tell the unvarnished truth.  One of the “prominent bloggers” who posted the phony response is Erick Erickson, a nut from Kentucky, who supports the equally nutty, pro-Iran, anti-American, anti-Gitmo Rand Paul, and who defended Emily Zanotti, the lunatic who has been stalking me for four years, who praised Muslim death, rape, and torture threats against me and my family, and who recently lost a scurrilous, unhinged attempt to threaten my free speech rights by trying to challenge my law license (which she did with the participation of a number of the bloggers now defending Freedom Alliance).  And I love how because the wasteful, lying charity claims in its response that Vannity paid for all his travel (he, in fact, paid for none of it and it was in fancy private planes, which I’ll tell you about in the coming days), that’s now “fact.”  Yup, repeating CYA press releases by perpetrators is now deemed an “exhaustive investigation.”

Here is my initial response to Freedom Alliance’s extremely weak PR attempt at covering its hide  (I will be posting more, next week, as I’ve discovered even more sleaze on the group’s part):

In fact, the Freedom Alliance “response” doesn’t answer any of the questions I raised and goes on to lie more. They don’t address why they gave a triple amputee only $200—and in fact there are many of these examples provided in their tax return addendum, but I only cited a few for brevity’s sake. They also lie and claim that they gave a lot more money to charity b/c they categorize it as “program expenses.” But I’m sorry—calling over $3 million in consulting fees, printing, and postage “program expenses” doesn’t change the fact that it still went to their cronies, not to a fund and not the soldiers who only got on average less than $900 apiece. It also doesn’t change the fact that out of the money spent (I didn’t count the money they claim they raised for their scholarship fund in my percentages or the figures would have been even more outrageous against Freedom Alliance), the vast majority of spending goes to those kinds of expenses.

Also, the “scholarship fund” is really a war chest for something else, since it isn’t being used to fund scholarships for kids of soldiers now.  If it has $15 million dollars, as they claim, then the interest alone should fund a free ride for all of the soldiers’ children currently in college.  What are they waiting for?  Likely, to convert the fund to something else, not what the donors intended.  Do you really think people who held bake sales and bought tickets to the concerts thought they were funding a Merrill Lynch account for a nebulous promise that some kids of fallen troops might go to college from it in 20 years?  No.  They thought they were funding kids to go to college on a full ride now.  But it was all a lie.

As I noted, Hannity said on his nationally-syndicated radio show that a $30,000 donation from Boca Java will fund a full year for one of these kids in college.  Sadly, it never did.  I don’t think anyone listening to his show thought that he meant 20 years from now.  That’s not what Boca Java thought, according to a company spokeswoman.

We’ve been at war since 2001, when we went into Afghanistan, and we’re winding down in Iraq. Unless Freedom Alliance wants you to believe that the soldiers who died there had no kids born before 1992–and clearly that’s not the case because Freedom Alliance has been giving a couple hundred kids a pittance for college since at least its tax filing in 2005, they are ripping these kids off in order to build a massive war chest and self-perpetuate. Again, with a giant multi-million dollar fund, why aren’t they giving the kids a free, complete ride to college? And how many kids of deceased troops will there be in the future? Enough to exhaust a multi-million dollar fund? Doubtful.

Moreover, because they hoarded millions of dollars, their returns show the fund shrunk by several million dollars with bad investments and market losses. That money could have put these kids through college for the entire time. What’s their excuse for the soldiers with no limbs and with severe burns? Are they waiting for two decades from now when technology is better? $165 for a soldier who is blind and his face blew up? No excuse for that. Their “response” is simply a non-response and an attempt to cover up the fraud.

Unfortunately for Freedom Alliance, I’ve discovered some interesting things that involve some other parties and more scamming here.  It’ll make you sick.  As a kid of a former wartime U.S. Army man, it makes me sick. They are using our severely wounded soldiers and the children of our war dead to help themselves and their cronies. And all the disinformation in the world won’t fool everyone. It’s an IQ test. If you believe the propaganda over their own tax forms, you failed. And you are essentially admitting they lied on their own taxes.

I will be posting more on this and on more fraud at Freedom Alliance, in the coming days. Stay tuned.

hello Debbie ,
Thanks for the update and very well done research.

JessH on March 20, 2010 at 5:59 am

It’s interesting that Sean won’t come to his own defense but has Michele Malkin – a real OBJECTIVE observer…smile….making excuses and trying to exonerate him on her blog.

Leo Kapakos on March 20, 2010 at 6:29 am

Is it possible the Freedom Alliance is secret account for campaign contributions for Hannity approved candidates. I’ve always felt he was a fraud and a flake and would love to see him brought up on charges as such.
Our so-called conservative leaders are just as corrupt as the Democrates movement.

PHENEAUS J. PECKENPAW on March 20, 2010 at 7:10 am

I do hope that the small amount of money that is actually given goes to the people it is supposed to, i.e. children of wounded soldiers, amputees etc., meager as it is.

It would make the scandal even worse if money was given to these women who are discharged from the service due to pregnancy. If they and their children are getting any of this money, it would compound this lack of responsibility by Hannity and his stooges. Hopefully this isn’t happening and there are strict controls over the criteria used to distribute the small amount of money that is actually given to the recipients.

Your disclosures really constitute a litmus test for those who call themselves conservatives. There is a vast layer of rot, around Fox News, the libertarians, the anti-semites (excuse the duplication) just about all of whom are stooges for the Republican establishment that will not do anything meaningful to support Israel except for pious announcements about the peace process, effectively cobat Iran, effectively combat Venezuela, fight illegal immigration (even Rubio in effect supports open borders), affirmative action, and so on.

This is a chance for any pundit around to distinguish him or herself from the vast journalistic and political rot that is out there.

Little Al on March 20, 2010 at 7:28 am

I haven’t done research on this, but I am also wondering whether there are any minimum distribution requirements that legally apply to this organization, and, if so, whether they are being met.

Little Al on March 20, 2010 at 7:35 am

5 Simple Questions for Hannity:
1 How much money has Freedom Concerts rised since 2003?
2 How much money have you donated to Freedom Allance?
3 How much money is left to be distributed?
4 Who has control of the remaining funds?
5 Why hasn’t Freedom Concerts filed even one Form 990, with the IRS since 2003?

Frank on March 20, 2010 at 8:56 am

    I am not a Hannity fan but he has donated at least 200K to Freedom alliance. He has also paid for his own tranportation and his family unlike Debbie claimed. I am very troubled by this and believe it should be abjudicated in a court of law. I do not believe Oliver North would lie about this or have anything to do with it other wise.

    Jack Hamilton on March 20, 2010 at 9:27 am

    Frank – you have very good questions by asking Sean for specifics and I have another style of questions to ask him. Ask him Yes or No questions, and when he tries to explain his answer before responding, just use the usual Vannity crap. Just badger him with “Just answer the question Yes or No, Yes or No, Yes or No. I don’t want to hear your pathetic response, just answer the question. Yes or No, Yes or No, Yes or No.” Make that turd squirm for a while. He is just an egotistical moron who lost any bit of credibility he had left when Colmes left the show and Vannity was shown to be the imbicile that he is.

    Jarhead on March 22, 2010 at 11:07 am

The fighter of your enemies is an unscripted ally.

Seymour del-Uziens on March 20, 2010 at 8:56 am

I DO get to laugh occasionaly!
“Deb, you had me until you blasted Rand Paul.”
Hannity is a shoddy televangelist in the TV church of Consevatism. I expect that he is the type which handles snakes (A Colmes) and speaks in (false) tongues.
If Hannnity were honest and sincere about his politics, he would do as Rush does: attack attack attack Liberalism without EVER giving them a forum on his show. No ‘equal time’, no “And here’s Bob Beckel to give the Democratic response”.
I’m not surprized that Hannity set up Freedom concerts to skin people from their money. Like many people who grew up poor but gain a LOT of money (see Hollywood)Hannity doesn’t ever ‘have enough’. He’s neurotic about money. And, as Debbie shows here, is a cheat. Prison? Would the Dems LOVE to see him in court?
Thank you for exposing Hannity, Debbie.

Douglas Q on March 20, 2010 at 9:04 am

Your article(s) regarding this topic have been featured on Raw Story’s website (rather prominently, as of Saturday 3/20).

I see you liberals are still distorting the facts when it comes to true conservatives. Oops, I forgot, facts is something you know nothing about. I should have said to quote a famous patriot “YOU LIE”

Ken on March 20, 2010 at 9:43 am

Thank you so much for exposing this Debbie. It’s funny how instead of Sean Hannity defending himself he has his troglodyte army of Michelle Malkin (who smears you by calling you a smearmonger)and the blog RedState defending Sean Hannity when we can see the tax forms ourselves. I think the quick response from them is to clamp the truth, and they know it. We need to know the truth esp. when it comes to those who “say” they are raising money for our troops.

Michael on March 20, 2010 at 10:08 am

Maybe Fox news will next create the “Ron Paul Show”, where he can have guests like Malkin, Geller, Beck, Norquist, Rand Paul, Tom Campbell, and various other haters, Nazis, conspiracy theorists, and Islamists. Hey, maybe Prince al-Waleed can also appear. He owns the damn network, after all.

Adrian Browne on March 20, 2010 at 10:30 am

Uh, no, aara. You might actually read Debbie’s comments on the Frum site. On second thought, no need. That “debunking” just repeats the talking points of Vannity and his cronies, which Debbie has ALREADY addressed here.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 10:37 am

Boy, tony, if this is the best your man Vannity (and his current beard Frum) can do, Vannity is going down. Here’s what I uncovered in barely 2 minutes of Googling.

The so-called $1000 limit (and the whole nature of ethics regulations) relates to those serving in the military. The purpose of such regulations is to avoid conflicts of interest for those who are serving. Nothing like this is relevant for soldiers who have been discharged because, say, their faces have been blown off.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 10:51 am

tony, dear, see my comment to one of your posts above. You are embarrassing yourself.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 10:52 am

Incidentally, tony, you can tell your buddy Vannity and Vannity beard Frum that regulations have official titles. These should be provided if they are referenced. In this case, the regulation is apparently DoD 5500.7-R (Joint Ethics Regulation), 3-400.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 10:59 am

c. Gifts to Ill or Injured Soldiers. Pursuant to Section 8127 of Public Law 109-148, the Fiscal Year 2006 Defense Appropriations Act, Section 3-400 of the JER was recently amended to allow active duty service members who have incurred illnesses or injuries as a result of armed conflict or other circumstance as defined in Section 3-401, while on active duty on or after 11 September 2001, and their family members, to accept unsolicited gifts from non-federal entities provided the gifts meet the following criteria: the gifts are not from foreign governments or their agents, the gifts are not solicited or coerced, the gifts are not accepted in violation of any other statute including Title 18 of the US Code, Sections 201(b) and 209 (reference (i)), and the gifts were not offered to influence the performance of official acts. If the value of a gift exceeds the minimal value, as determined by the General Services Administration under Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulation, Section 102-42.10, which is currently $305.00, per source per occasion, or with an aggregate value exceeding $1,000 received from any one source in a calendar year, an agency ethics official must determine in writing the following:
(1) The gift is not offered in a manner that specifically discriminates among injured active duty members on the basis of official responsibility or favors those of higher rank or rate of pay;
(2) The donor does not have interests that may be affected substantially by the performance or nonperformance of the covered DoD employee’s official duties; and
(3) Acceptance would not cause a reasonable person with knowledge of the relevant facts to question the integrity of DoD’s programs or operations.
3. For additional information, contact your servicing Judge Advocate or CPT Jeffrey Bizon, Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, US Army Medical Command (MCJA), at (210) 221-8359.

tony on March 20, 2010 at 11:04 am

Oh, and tony, even if the $1000 limit were valid (and it is not), that doesn’t explain why Vannity is fundraising as if he could give more than $1000 when he can’t. But such a simple observation as this apparently escapes you.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:05 am

Oh, learn to read, tony dear.

“c. Gifts to Ill or Injured Soldiers. Pursuant to Section 8127 of Public Law 109-148, the Fiscal Year 2006 Defense Appropriations Act, Section 3-400 of the JER was recently amended to allow ==> active duty service members relevant <== words?

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:07 am

Darn, my comment was mangled somehow. Here is what I meant to write:

—–

Oh, learn to read, tony dear.

“c. Gifts to Ill or Injured Soldiers. Pursuant to Section 8127 of Public Law 109-148, the Fiscal Year 2006 Defense Appropriations Act, Section 3-400 of the JER was recently amended to allow ==> active duty service members <== . . . ."

Now, tony, do you see those words "active duty service members"?

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:10 am

skzion, the fund is geared towards helping young active duty members of the services and their families. Obviously you think they should be helping service members injured in WW2, Korea, etc.. That is your perogative but is not the purpose of the fund. If you want to help those members, contribute to any of the large number of funds that currently help older former service members.

tony on March 20, 2010 at 11:17 am

So, tony, a triple amputee is on active duty?

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:19 am

Our Mission

The Mission of Freedom Alliance is to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States and promoting a strong national defense.

tony on March 20, 2010 at 11:21 am

Seriously, tony, this is becoming a dark comedy. Has it occurred to you that military men who are on active duty do not need Vannity’s money?

You still, by the way, haven’t explained why Vannity is collecting money that he — according to you — can’t spend on those who are needy.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:22 am

Attention Hannity, (sad to say) North, and FA apologists:

Your “debunked” links only reinforce the points Debbie has made. Perfume the stench of FA as you will, it still reeks to high heaven. Spin as you try…the numbers do not lie….and the only thing I still wonder about is how the $$ (spelled S-L-U-S-H) is doled out from “Freedom CONcerts?”

Ollie? Frum? Drones?

BB on March 20, 2010 at 11:22 am

So, tony, now you are trying ad hominem approaches? I’m surprised that Vannity can’t hire better than you, though, judging from your silly responses.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:26 am

“skzion, the fund is geared towards helping young active duty members of the services and their families.”

But if we go to the linked web site “helpfully” provided by tony, we see this:

“Every day Freedom Alliance pays tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who wear our nation’s uniform and fight for our freedom. We do this through our Support Our Troops program, a year-round outreach which honors members of our Armed Forces – those who have been wounded in combat and are recuperating at military hospitals throughout the United States – as well as those currently serving on the frontlines. We also provide support and comfort to grieving military families, whose loss is immeasurable.”

As we can see, the purpose of FA extends well beyond active duty military and their families. Furthermore, as I have already noted, “those currently serving on the frontlines” are not those who desperately need the money being collected.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:30 am

Anyway, tony, I am tired of your spamming. Anyone who can process information above the level, say, of a pet dog, will not be fooled.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 11:34 am

Those recouperating in military hospitals are still active duty.

tony on March 20, 2010 at 11:36 am

Clarification:

Drones? Ah Tony you are the queen drone for FA bro

BB on March 20, 2010 at 11:38 am

Debbie, thank you for opening my eyes to this clown–Eric too.
Everytime I think I have found someone who thinks like I do you shoot it down. In the end, only you do!!

medvedfan on March 20, 2010 at 11:39 am

I think the tax returns speak for themselves. The onus is NOW on Hannity.

I am so disappointed in this news. At the end of the day though, I would just like the TRUTH.

Conservatives who give Liberals their own rope to hang themselves do NOT help out cause.

It’s amazing how many conservatives who DON’T READ the full posts and say DS is a LIBERAL. Amazing.

Skunky on March 20, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Excellent work, DS. Just excellent. If there’s an online version of a Pulitizer for investigative reporting(as well as herculean research into the facts of the matter) you should win for this story hands down for 2010. Michael Savage briefly referenced your story without naming Hannity last night so word is slowly trickling out onto the airwaves.

My only concern and question: Could Mr. Hannity’s attorneys prevent you from publishing these stories? Perhaps for libel? Have to consider what they might try to prevent any more of these…shocking details from seeing the light of day.
Once again, excellent work. A clear reminder that accuracy trumps ideology, including one’s own.
Most important thing regarding any story:
“Accuracy, accuracy, and accuracy”–Joseph Pulitzer

Jimmy on March 20, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Why do Hannity and his lawyer-posing-as-a-commenter find it so difficult to just present one honest accounting of the donations people have made to this “charity”?

Adrian Browne on March 20, 2010 at 12:15 pm

B.S.

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    My comment was in response to a claimed war veteran, whom I didn’t believe for a minute was what he claimed. Since that “veteran’s” comment is now gone my own comment makes no sense.

    skzion on March 20, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Tolerance of views, cultures, religions, etc.. defines Americans and is what makes America great. Intolerance in the past was deemed unpatriotic. Now intolerance is broadcast hourly on cable TV and radio and is defined as patriotic. Patriotism is just another tool for the thieves. This charity’s performance is sad. Thank you Debbie and to the others in past years whose articles have brought this charity’s performance attention. We pay a lot of money every month to cable /satellite-TV/radio to listen to this crap so we can BELIEVE! Our culture believes in the facts. It’s what defines America. Now What!

Edn on March 20, 2010 at 12:41 pm

I’ve got to go with Debbie on this one. So many conservative pundits are on the take. We will probably end up w. 8 years of BHO b/c the these turds want a Palin/Romneycare ticket. Debbie doesn’t care if she has friends or not and she certainly isn’t in it for the money. She broke down the tax docs…

A lot of radio people are like politicians – huge sleazebags and like politicians only a few are good guys… Hang in there Debbie.

Freedom Concerts and Freedom Alliance are two completely different organizations,do you understand!
Ok Hannity lovers answer these questions:
Where is there a public accounting for all the monies raised and distributed by Freedom Concerts since 2003!
Where are the Tax Form 990’s for the Freedom Concerts for the following years of; 2003 2004,2005,2006,2007,2008 and when due for 2009?
Hannity is not part of Freedom Alliance,he’s like a vendor who raises money for them,got it! He just sucks up to North and supposedly donates some of the monies raised from his Freedom Concerts,now do you understand?
Try to understand this you brain-washed sychophants:
Hannity’s problems are with his so-called “Freedom Concerts” BECAUSE there has been NO PUBLIC ACCOUNTING of where the money goes after Freedom Concerts raises it! He donates money to Freedom Alliance or so he says!
Freedom Alliance has their own problems not related to Hannity,DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW!
I’ve pis*ed away more intelligence than all you nit-wits on the right, could ever hope to have!

Frank on March 20, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    This link provides the confusion of the Freedom Concerts and Freedom Alliance as well as Hannity’s on air voice.
    http://www.freedomalliance.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2124&Itemid=15
    The net proceeds and amounts raised are what this is all about.
    Freedom Concerts homepage states that it has raised $10 million dollars for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund and what Freedom Alliance awards to scholarship recipients is just part of the story. The real story regarding Hannity is why doesn’t he state the ACTUAL amount the concerts donate to the Scholarship Fund. If the ACTUAL amount of dollars donated by the concerts doesn’t match the Scholarship amounts awarded by Freedom Alliance then that’s a problem Hannity should be aware of after all these years. Hannity is not the great American if he doesn’t question this and continues to mislead his audience to donate to this Scholarship. The time has come again to question Sean Hannity as a GREAT AMERICAN and/or schemer.

    Edn on March 20, 2010 at 1:37 pm

The army of Troglodytes attacking Debbie Schlussel or carrying water for Freedom Alliance (with its weak “response”) in protecting Sean Hannity:

1. Michelle Malkin (Ms. Japanese Internment was right)
2. Erick Erickson at Redstate
3. Brent Baker at “Newsbusters”
4. Joseph Lawler at The American Spectator

And this is so far. More to come I’m sure….

Yet, Sean Hannity stays completely mum, when Debbie has shown the tax forms and is not saying families don’t get any money at all, but it’s a question of HOW MUCH money is actually going to the people we want it to go to, not cronies. Keep up the fight Debbie, we’re with you to expose this sham in the name of our veterans.

Michael on March 20, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Great comment Michael nothing is sicker than seeing these people who I used to read defend this stuff. Another one you can add to the list unfortunatly is world net daily. I thought they were independant but there not. There the same as the rest.

    tyler on March 20, 2010 at 6:04 pm

It was sad and disgraceful when obambi used dead patriots for a photo op at Dover. It is even worse when an organization uses them as props for profit.

thank you Debbie for actually defending our veterans and their families from this abusive scam being done in the name of patriotism.

ender on March 20, 2010 at 1:44 pm

I guess, for Vannity, charity REALLY does begin (and stay) at home!

Lee on March 20, 2010 at 2:21 pm

But, But Father Flager!!!

Hannity is a no nothing hack that repeats his lies and innuendos ad nauseum. Thank you Debbie for helping to bring this story to light. After reading about your many accomplishments in investigative journalism I hope you get a talk show with a wider audience…..anywhere but Fox, GOP Radio.

Paul White on March 20, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Hannity is a faux conservative, anti-Semite scumbag and criminal. He should be sentenced to prison and pay full restitution for all that money the FA has squandered and spent on cronies, consultants, lost in investements and other graft. Break him financially, then let his crooked *ss rot in prison to think about why what he did was wrong.

DS_ROCKS! on March 20, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Have been familiar with Sean Vannity for years, beginning with his love/hate relationship with Free Republic, based on whether he had anything to sell that week, or not.

This does not surprise me in the least.

Thanks for exposing what’s wrong, with the right.

Vicky on March 20, 2010 at 3:04 pm

Still want to know the following:

1. How much of other expenses were directly for packages to soldiers or anything else for direct soldier benefit?
2. What is FA’s rationale for scholarship fund on actuarial basis. Contrary to Debbie’s assertions it may not at all be prudent or possible to pay entire costs of education for dependents. As well, dependents may have other resources, including other charities trying to help these folks, so FA prolly takes that into account. Bottom line, FA needs to fully disclose on this.
3. Rock star accommodations for Hannity and entourage. This should be very easy to figure out. If the concert organizer paid for this kind of transpo/lodging, it’s a scandal – doesn’t matter whether it comes out of FA’s pocket or not. What is typical for charity events is that the event organizer would reimburse everyone based on some fair standard and then individual entertainers make their own arrangements. Private planes and fancy suites shouldn’t form the basis of the reimbursement standard used. Again, details are key here.

Keep the good work, Debbie, but can you try and ratchet down the hyperbole a bit? It sounds too much like Hannity’s hateful smearing of people and if you want to actually be better than him, you should behave better than him.

Glenn on March 20, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Sean Hannity is a complete fraud. He poses as a “conservative” and as a “Catholic” but is neither.

Thanks, Debbie, for again exposing his true colors, and keep up the great work.

As for the professional “conservatives” who care more about their careers in television than standing up for our veterans, here is their “debunking” of Debbie’s facts:

1. Sean Hannity is my friend.
2. I can benefit from Sean by getting on Fox News.
3. Therefore, I must defend Sean and the Freedom Alliance Scam.

Sorry, Michelle and others, if I donate $50 to Freedom Alliance for our wounded veterans and families, and only $5 of it goes to them and the rest to “expenses,” that is not a charity, it is a scam.

JM on March 20, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Bravo! Debbie.

Bring him to the kennels and feed him to the dogs.

And what exactly has Debbie said that was “not right”?

skzion on March 20, 2010 at 4:35 pm

“Full of facts,” fatman? I don’t recall seeing an explanation in the alleged “debunking” for why so little of the money donated actually gets spent on soldiers and their families.

I did notice, however, the hilarious subterfuges being used in the “debunking.” See my back-and-forth with dear tony earlier on this blog entry.
