Democrats even steal from each other...

Nonprofit groups often seek restitution, not prosecution, when money goes missing


Three years ago, the Progressive Policy Institute realized that a senior manager had quietly used unauthorized checks, credit-card charges and cash withdrawals to drain about $100,000 from the Democratic think tank’s accounts, pushing the nonprofit group to the edge of insolvency, interviews and documents show.


They agreed to forgo legal action in exchange for restitution.

“We had an agreement that as long as the payments were made, that we would not pursue anything else,”


The institute declined to publicly identify the manager. Elizabeth Kennedy, who was executive director in 2010, left about the time of the discovery, and the institute’s financial records state that she has since “repaid” tens of thousands of dollars to the institute.


Since leaving the institute, Kennedy has gone on to work for nonprofit and political groups in Florida, serving as finance director at one, documents and interviews show.


Charity fraud specialist Gary Snyder called public disclosure essential. “If people are allowed to walk away, they will just go somewhere else,” he said.

These are the people we have to deal with on the other side. And I wonder where the money she uses to "repay" comes from.
