Dont want to sound stoopid here, but WTF is that and what size? Outfit for sale, shirt, whats avail?
Uh, you just proved my point.
Every example you have cited is wrongdoing by individual chapters, and the Illinois case is more than a decade old. The Santa Clara case dates back to 2003. I haven't bothered checking the others, but, if you like, I will, keeping in mind that you accused GW as a whole of being under investigation as we speak. As I said, the integrity of any local charity, including GW, is dependent on the quality of leadership and the vigilance of the community, and GW has never pretended anything else. To paint an entire charity as corrupt based on isolated scandals that stretch no further than one town or county is misleading and erroneous, analogous to calling all Scoutmasters child molesters based on a smattering of pervs. To its credit, a GW chapter in Wisconsin, after being hit by an embezzling employee, published a handbook on how to prevent such misdeeds that included a blow-by-blow of how it happened to them and then sent the publication gratis to every GW in the nation. And if you won't take my word for that, I'll find you a link. Digging your grave even deeper, you hold up VV, which is arguably a for-profit front that uses the name of charities to bolster its image, as an example of virtue. That's just plain stupid, my man. I've forgotten more about thrift stores than you'll ever know, and if you want to keep up this silly argument that GW is generically corrupt, bring it.
