More good coverage on law-enforcement charity scams

At the Austin Statesman, Tony Plohetski has a story on law-enforcement themed charities including the Texas Highway Patrol Association that claim to raise money for officer death benefits then spend the overwhelming majority of funds on telemarketing and feathering their nests. Particularly interesting is his account of mostly unsuccessful legislative efforts in the '90s to rein in the practice.

Amazing how simple it can be to communicate with people and have them understand a certain topic, you made my day.
