The group — called the Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, Inc. — instead spent $500,000 on items like food, limousines, and rap music, the Post found.

Appears to be another DNC inspired charity based on the Clinton Foundation model.

I no longer give to charities. Most of them spend much of the money on vendors and board members. I do agree that much of the money goes to the actual charity. But large amounts go to other things.

I do give to people who need help. Or small local groups where I can see the benefit.

Black democrat politicians are ALL thieves and they think they’re entitled to rip everyone else off. But then we all knew that.
