Apparently, former Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki never got the memo that one of his job requirements for running the department was helping along Bill O’Reilly’s charity for wounded soldiers. Last night, O’Reilly explained that he “knew” Shinseki was not a good manager because he never got involved with O’Reilly’s charity.
O’Reilly revealed this insight in a discussion with Fox reporter Jennifer Griffin. And this was not the first time I heard O’Reilly say something like this.
O’REILLY: I said - and this might have been unfair and I want to get your opinion on it - that Shinseki, I knew was not managing the VA properly because he never one time contacted you or me or the (charity) and said, “Hey can we help you in this effort?” We’ve raised 25 million dollars for getting the chairs for the guys and gals. But he was totally detached from it and that really struck me as strange.
GRIFFIN: It is strange, Bill. And there was a complete disconnect with the VA and with Shinseki himself.
Let that be a warning to the acting secretary and to whoever becomes Shinseki’s permanent replacement.
Nowhere in either year is even one million contained on those for. The reader of this website would do well to look up guidestar.org, for these outfit, including Wounded Warrior Project, filing of IRS 990, they are public records, and get the scoop what is really going on.
It would be interested to know what charity Bill O’Reilly runs. By law he is mandated, assuming he is not a church, to file a public 990, under section 501©, 527, or 4947.
You can view that form because it says on the first page “Open To Public Inspection.”
Sorry for the caplock rant, but this stuff really gets under my skin. I get so annoyed when I see that wounded warrior commercial on TV. We shouldn’t need country singers to beg for donations to support our brave men and women.
