The FBI is investigating a Boy Scout Council?

Hmm, I wonder why. Maybe they get federal dollars from housing authority units?

I could see the county prosecutor's office or the state AG's office investigating a local scout council but not the FBI.

Looks like some of the volunteers are about sore about losing some of their camps. Some of these old timers become very attached to the camps. Many put years of money and sweat equity into them.

Scout councils, the local District Executives and district committees are notorious for having paper troops and fudging the numbers. They just love to have the Quality district pin on their uniforms.

In 1968 the national bsa spearheaded huge 6-year membership drive where they wanted one out of 3 boys a scout as it turns out a big scandal broke in the 1970's in Chicago where the district executives took the names off of tombstones and registered them as boy scouts so they could make their goals. Some things never change.

This happens in other organizations as well. It seems when MBA's invade the management the groups core values seems to disappear. Blame it on the United Way, they are usually the ones who are encouraging the business side of organizations at the expense of the traditions of their mission.

I don't suppose they are going to alos investigate Alabamas welfare caseloads too.

Oh and Planned Parenthood gets a whole load of federal $. No falsified abortion billing I'm sure.

But the FBI are too busy chasing the Boy Scouts, so I guess they don't have time for those things.

Interesting wording:

"Exaggerating membership numbers could lead to greater financial support, board members said."

Financial support? I did NOT hear anything about FEDERAL DOLLARS?

WHY is the FBI waging war on the Boy Scouts then?

The clintonistas in our govt need to be purged immediately! Especially the pigs in the FBI, CIA, the federal courts and the lawyer scums.

The FBI has time to check out this nonsense as The Queen of King County steals the governorship in Washington State.

Sheesh
