Air America's Enron - Liars & The Lies They Tell

Air America (AA) is reported to have a funding scheme going on that takes money away from disadvantaged boys and girls and the elderly suffering from Alzheimer's. Michelle Malkin has the best coverage on this disgusting story:

Malkin On AA Fraud

From yesterday, the story breaks that Air America had an investment scheme that used the Gloria Wise Boy's & Girl's Club capital and has not repaid it:

A Bronx congressman yesterday praised the smooth takeover of dozens of programs serving thousands of youngsters and seniors across the borough after the city yanked funding from two sponsoring agencies that have come under a cloud. The nonprofit Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club and its affiliate Pathways for Youth found their city contracts, running into the millions of dollars, abruptly ended last month by the city Department of Investigation...In its initial announcement, the DOI said it was probing allegations that program officials "approved significant inappropriate transactions and falsified documents that were submitted to various city agencies."According to published reports, the allegations involve Charles Rosen, the founder of Gloria Wise who has stepped down as executive director, investing city contract funds in Air America Radio, the liberal talk radio network.Evan Cohen, Air America's former chairman, had served as Gloria Wise's director of development.

So Evan Cohen former chairman of AA, appears to have worked a sleaze ball Enron like deal to give Al Fraken and gang money to keep their radio network that no one listens to, at the expense of disadvantaged youth and elderly Americans suffering from Alzheimer's. Sickening, actually beyond sickening........

What does AA and the Franken gang have to say about this today:

liars & the lies they tell

Well, they do a complete Enron rationalization, and say technically it has nothing to do with them. Sorry boys and girls of Gloria Wise Club, even though Air America stole your money it was the former owners not us. We will give the money back because we have been caught but don't associate our bad name with this because it was the former owners not us. The pathetic Enron like cover statement here via AA:

As reported in the Wall Street Journal and the HBO Documentary, Left of the Dial; the company that the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club officials gave money to, Progress Media, has been defunct since May 2004. That company was run at the time by Evan Cohen who has not had any involvement in Air America Radio since May 2004.The current owners of Air America Radio have no obligation to Progress Media's business activities. We are very disturbed that Air America Radio's good name could be associated with a reduction in services for young people, which is why we agreed months ago to fully compensate the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club as a result of this transaction.

Al Fraken and gang are frauds and pure socialist liars. There should be a full scale congressional investigation into this atrocity and crime............
