A charity formed after the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School has been unable to account for more than $70,000 it raised through marathon running, one of its co-founders said Friday. Ryan Graney, of Nashville, Tenn., said only $30,000 of the $103,000 taken in by the 26.4.26 Foundation was used for the organization's purpose.....

This is the way a lot of left wing fundraising goes. I seem to remember that after the world wide televised LIVE AID concert was said and done and all the entertainers collected their bling and got on their jets the starving refugees ended up with a few hundred bags of rice and some empty canteens.
Just chalk it up to "overhead".
There you go with your Daily Mail . . .
All the News the MSM refuses to print.
Same rumors of corruption that happened after Haiti was turned upside down a few years back. In Haiti’s case, the county’s own so called leaders were skimming off the top. There was no reason thousands had to live in a tent on the beach for years. The beach tent-cities may still be going on today.
sounds like he ran off with the loot
He probably took it all to Colorado to buy some doobies.
LOL. He looks like a a doobie type of pajama boy.
The good news is $70,000 won’t last long.
He will be caught and the prison bubba’s are gonna
work this pajama boy over real good.
I’m shocked I tell ya. Shocked to learn that there was thievery going on inside a charitable fund raising org. NOT! Hope the asshat gets popped. Er, what I mean is arrested. Yeah, that’s it.
What exactly was the money supposed to be used for, anyway?
Left wing, freedom taking anti-gun efforts. What else?
Expect more of this....district is awash in monies....and human nature being what it is....
This past week: The Newtown school district will receive an additional $1.9 million to aid its recovery from the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the federal government announced Monday.
Thank you taxpayers.
I, too, was wondering if there might be some kind of connection. I bet he ran more than 26.2 miles.
You nailed it. who was to benefit??
They are getting the school replaced by the state. If my town decided to replace a perfectly good school, our property taxes would dramatically increase.
To be honest, I am not entirely sure what the purpose of these donations are? Are they just going to give the families of the deceased children a wad of cash?
I have no answers to your perfectly good questions.
The school is being replaced w/ state and Fed monies, as far as I know; monies have been disbursed to victims’ families over much in-fighting.
Even very LIEberal CT press [Colin McEnroe is seeing some light] : **And, given that, there probably isn’t anything in the area of gun policy or mental health that could have been done to save us from them or them from each other.**
The father/press is making a big deal about him cooperating by releasing Adam’s health records to a study group.
So admit...nothing, nothing could have prevented this pyscho....who is referred to in most press articles as the *shooter*...not by name.....so it goes in the Constitution state.
Locking him away would have prevented it.
