    The chief executive officer and chief operating officer of the Wounded Warrior Project were fired Thursday, according to a CBS News report.

    CEO Steven Nardizzi and COO Al Giordano were voted out by the group’s board of directors following reports that Wounded Warrior had been spending too much on fundraising and lavish parties and too little on actual charitable work.



    The veterans’ charity, the largest in the country, has been facing questions about its spending habits. An earlier CBS report showed that the organization spends only 60 percent of its budget on helping veterans, while other charities devote upward of 90 percent of their budgets to such action.
    According to the report, which was based on interviews with more than 40 former employees, the WWP spent $3 million on a four-day conference in Colorado for 500 of its staff members.

    Despite Friday’s firings, the organization has adamantly denied that report.

    "We demand that CBS immediately correct the record, issue a retraction of the false statements, and issue an apology to the public and the tens of thousands of wounded veterans and their families who have been offended by these false statements," said WWP spokeswoman Ayla Tezel in a statement back in January.

    We should just stop cutting funds to the VA so these bullshit charities wouldn't be able to take advantage of people. The VA should be fully funded to take care of the people we sent off to get maimed in combat. Also, we should stop creating wounded warriors. That would help too.

    No kidding. They've rightfully collected millions of dollars. Scandals come out and people stop giving. Then vets get fucked again. Not right.
    They should be locked up for embezzlement.
    I hope the whole fucking house is cleaned out so they can be trusted.

    Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson were waiting backstage to go up & perform for this Toby Keith organized charity concert for wounded veterans.
    Toby Keith is walking by & notices Kris (two terms in Vietnam flying helicopters & seeing major action, attaining the rank of Captain following training at the U.S. Army Ranger School) and stops, glares at Kristofferson & says "I don't want none of your anti-war shit up there during the show, you understand?"
    Willie had to restrain Kristofferson from going after Chicken Hawk Toby.
