J. Whyatt Mondesire, the embattled former president of the local and state NAACP, is facing new accusations that he misspent state money.

Mondesire’s nonprofit, Next Generation CDC, claimed to have improved the home field for the North Philly Aztecs with a state grant. But according to a report published Saturday on the AxisPhilly.org website, Mondesire did nothing to fix up the field where the Pop Warner Jr. Pee Wee Super Bowl champs played.

By “misspent” do they really mean “stole”?

Where does all public money that gets placed into Democrat supporters hands go? Too easy, their pocket. Next question.

In a breakdown of how the money would be spent over two years, Mondesire cited fixing drainage problems ($20,000), erecting exterior lighting ($30,000) and bleachers ($20,000), building three storage sheds ($15,000) and putting up fencing ($15,000)...

The grant was just one of dozens that were awarded to the Next Generation CDC over the years by the Department of Community and Economic Development, a state agency that once served to funnel money to politicians’ pet projects (often referred to as Walking Around Money, or WAMs). Shortly after taking office, Gov. Corbett sharply curtailed the issuing of DCED grants.

At least eight of these grants, totaling $170,000, were issued to the Next Generation CDC after 2005, the last year for which it filed the 990 forms the Internal Revenue Service requires nonprofits to file.

Just some more Philly phunny games with public funds.
