|He, and thousands like him, are used as bait by "charities."|
|Ben Affleck pleads for your money to "help our nation's heroes."|
The Wounded Warriors Project has mounted a major campaign on TV in recent weeks to speed up the influx of your hard-earned money. The executive director of this "nonprofit" pays himself more than $600,000 a year, according to its Form 990 tax return, and his deputy about $400,000 a year. Nine other executives haul in between $150,000 and $200,000 a year, plus benefits, pensions and expense accounts. Ben Affleck appears in a new ad for Paralyzed Veterans of America, which spends twice as much money to raise funds (60 percent of its income) as it spends on helping its "heroes."
Is that where you want your money to go? Especially since billions of your tax dollars are already being devoted to veterans?
