Investigation Into 9/11 Charities

In our recent blog about the charities created post 9/11, we mentioned a report that "uncovered schemes beset with shady dealings, questionable expenses and dubious intentions." Now comes word that investigations into 9/11 charities have been launched in NY and Arizona. The investigations are looking into "whether they failed to follow state laws — and may have misspent millions intended to help and honor those affected by the terrorist attacks."
