The Hurricane Katrina charity set up with Bush and Clinton should not be being looked at for missing money. Who steals money from a fund set up to help victims of a hurricane?

Behind this heartwarming narrative, however, an ongoing review of public filings, many of which are omitted from the website of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation (aka the Clinton Foundation), tells a different story….
