    Excerpt:

    For the last several years, Sean Hannity and the Freedom Alliance “charity” have conducted “Freedom Concerts” across America. They’ve told you that they are raising money to pay for the college tuition of the children of fallen soldiers and to pay severely wounded war vets.

    But it’s all a huge scam.

    In fact, less than 20%–and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively–of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes

    (A promoter) apparently values Hannity’s star demands at well over $200,000 per event. The source says he heard that Oliver North (who is the founder and honorary chairman of Freedom Alliance) pulled Hannity aside at one of the concerts and told him that this had to stop.

    According to its 2006 tax returns, Freedom Alliance reported revenue of $10, 822, 785, but only $397,900–or a beyond-measly 3.68%–of that was given to the children of fallen troops as scholarships or as aid to severely injured soldiers.

    On the other hand, 62% of the money went to “expenses,” including $979,485 for “consultants” and an “advisor.” Yes, consultant/advisors got more than double what injured troops and the kids of fallen troops got. The tax forms show that “New World Aviation” got paid $60,601 for “air travel.” Was that for Hannity’s G5? Like I said, neither the charity nor Hannity is talking. And finally, that year, Freedom Alliance spent $1,730,816 on postage and shipping and $1,414,215 on printing, for a total of $3,145,031, nearly half the revenue the charity spent that year and about eight times what the injured troops and the children of fallen ones received.

    If true, this is fucking CRIMINAL, and Hannity should be hung from a lamppost. Not only is it wrong from its own standpoint, but it discredits and harms other truly worthy charities, that don't all operate like this. For example:

    My partner was a founder of a charity here in Florida that has raised millions for HIV/AIDS agencies. Every fucking penny raised, 100%, goes to those agencies. He, I, all the committee members, receive absolutely nothing for our work. No salary, no compensation, nothing.

    My partner & I even make our place available for the monthly meetings of members coming from around Florida, so we can avoid the cost of a conference center. We even personally buy the donuts, bagels, coffee and so forth that are served. And yet this is an organization that handles 100s of thousands of dollars. Some of you have seen the pics posted here of us receiving checks on behalf of these AIDS agencies.

    And we are not alone. Rather, it is outfits like Freedom Alliance that I hope are the criminal exception. Damn, forgive me for getting so agitated (well, more than typical for me here), but this REALLY hits me where I live. If this is verified, that scum Hannity is not merely an offense to all Americans, he is a threat to ME and the work my partner & I do, and many other good people.

    well if this shitz is true then hunnitay should be shunned and publicly embarrased. I doubt theres anything close to a crime involved cuz a ton of non-profits work this way....with expenses and other things (after 911 katrina and pretty much every fukin thing where ppl give money for charity).

    the most that can happen is that the world knows the dudes a hypocrite who got royal treatment at the expense of the needy. If true....everyone should know about it

    I agree if this is true then yes Hannity needs to step up and take responsibility HOWEVER once again this secret source should come out and man up before taking this serious.

    Having worked with Hannity in the past, I'm not surprised one bit. They were always very secretive about how much $$ was actually making its way to the kids...disgusting.

    I have to agree with some of what I'm reading online - the proof is in the tax documents, which will be easy for the major media outlets to uncover for us. Give it time.

    Note that Debbie Schlussel is a conservative blogger, not a left-winger. If what Schlussel writes is true, then Hannity is likely going to be in a world of hurt.

    I don't know. It's amazing what the true believers on the extreme right can ignore.

    Hungjockk is not gay.

    It was just in the chat room talking smack.

    The usual "you faggots have aids etc".

    Be advised.

    NOT surprised about hungjock.
    There are several right-wing trolls who have been working these forums, trying to lie and spin impressionable and easily swayed gays, by pretending to be "independent", and talking a lot of bs about how there's no difference between the two parties, and how Obama and the Dems have "let us down" and are no better than the ACTIVELY anti-gay Republican party, and how gays might as well just vote Republican or stay home in Nov, because the Republicans are supposedly no worse than the Democrats on all the issues, and specifically - on gay issues.
    It's total BS.
    They may be getting paid to do it by the RNC.
    There are paid "trolls" doing the same thing on liberal blogs.

    It's just one of the sneaky and dishonest things Republicans are doing to try to help their chances in Nov.

    When Oliver North tells you that your bad behaviour has to stop, you know you're morally fucked.

    Ollie is a convicted perjurer, a gun running, narco-trafficking, terrorist funding criminal. (Who has his own propaganda show on Faux News).

    He knows a thing or two about fraud.

    If Ollie is lecturing Hannity, Hannity is in trouble (morally, at least). But then, we already knew that.
