US Catholic Charity Scandal
Monday, 11th September 2000 at 12:09 pm

San Francisco Catholic Charities has been forced to resign after embarrassing disclosures about his personal spending of charity funds and the lack of financial accountability.

San Francisco newspapers tell the story of an internal investigation by the charity that revealed the CEO, Frank Hudson had spent a total of $73,000 in the past two years on meals in the city’s best restaurants, as well as cosmetic surgery for himself!

The reports say receipts show he averaged $500 a week on meals, and the spending was approved by his personal assistant rather than the Board.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Hudson won’t be given a severance package, but also won’t be asked to repay anything except the $3,158 he has already given back for the cosmetic procedures.

The paper says that along with Hudson’s resignation, the board members promised to follow much stricter procedures, especially regarding finances!
