Conservative blogger says Hannity's 'Freedom Concerts' a 'scam'

Posted By on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Sean Hannity of FoxNews (he’s the squinty one) is being accused by conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel of unethical fundraising practices and fraudulent claims in connection with his “Freedom Alliance” charity. The group puts on “Freedom Concerts” with the stated goal of raising money for college for children of fallen soldiers and care for wounded veterans. Schlussel says those concerts are a scam.

“In fact,” writes Schlussel, "... in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively, of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes, while millions of dollars went to expenses, including consultants and apparently to ferret the Hannity posse of family and friends in high style.” It will be interesting to see how Hannity tries to squirm out of this one; I’m especially looking forward to how his usual criticism of “moral relativism” comes into play.

What?! You mean now I'm expected to keep my word?
