Wyclef Jean's Charity, Yele Haiti, Accused Of Squandering Millions In Donations


www.huffingtonpost.com

Wyclef Jean's charity, Yele Haiti, is coming under scrutiny again for squandering millions of dollars in charitable donations.

The New York Post reported that the charity took in $16 million from donors in 2010, but only about a third went to fund emergency efforts. The paper also reported that $1 million went to a Florida company called Amisphere Farm Labor, Inc., that doesn't appear to actually exist.

Okay, so Wyclef's charity apparently has been appropriating relief funds to companies that do not exist.



This is not the first time that the charity has been accused spending funds outside of what was reported...

Wyclef was accused of spending money of his unsuccessful campaign for the Presidency of Haiti.


Last year, the ex-Fugees rapper mounted an unsuccessful campaign for Haiti's presidency. That electoral bid was dogged by allegations that Jean took money from Yele for his personal use, which he flatly denied. "Have we made mistakes before? Yes," Jean said in a press conference last year. "Did I ever use Yele money for personal benefits? Absolutely not. Yele's books are open and transparent."


I've always been a huge fan of the Fugees and Wyclef. I would hate to find out that he's guilty of what he's been accused of.

You can take the boy out of Haiti, but you can't take Haiti out of the boy.

Corruption is as expected there as it is in Chicago, New Orleans or New Jersey.

Haiti was a lush paradise before the revolution, now it's a toilet.

For a people to be truly free they must be educated, otherwise the shiesters move in and start skimming, this is why I hold out little hope for the Arab Spring.

This was in the third link in the related links section above...



Earlier this year, the rapper claimed he was shot in Haiti and said he received treatment for a gunshot wound to the hand, but a policeman later claimed this was incorrect and that he merely cut himself.


I remember hearing about him getting shot but I never heard any follow up to it. I guess it turns out he's been caught lying already. I would assume that this isn't going to turn out well for him.
