So, what's the truth behind the AAR "stealing money charge"
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 09:41 AM by WoodrowFan
Once again I heard some winger claiming that Air America "stole money from a Boys and Girls Club." I've only read a little about it and from what I saw it's BS, but can somebody please fill me in on the truth?

Who has nothing to do with AAR anymore. The money was apparently returned.

Looking for the Link right now.

Michele has been linking to statements put out from Air America on this case. What they're essentially saying is the funds in question that are being investigated were to previous business owners of Air America, that they have nothing to do with those preview business owners and so they are not responsible for what's going on here.

<SNIP>

Let's recap. What do we have so far? All allegations that the allegedly pilfered Gloria Wise money went to Air America Radio are based on one, and only one, source: Michael Horowitz in the prestigious, if ephemeral, Bronx News. And Horowitz got his information from "informed sources" of undetermined origin.

3. If you want the RW take
and can stomach it, go to the Malkin site. She's been hounding it for weeks.
