Oh my. The Maryland Daily Record reports today that the former CFO of the Maryland Legal Aid – that’s right, the folks we trust to supply civil legal aid to the poor and needy – is charged with scheming to steal over $1.1 million from nonprofit. The scam? The ole “pay bills to pretend companies” scam. Incredibly, the guy was the CFO of Maryland Legal Aid for thirty years.
I think it is time to go to Google to try to find a good, old fashioned feel good human interest story that might even be true.
