Air America Loan Probed by Boys & Girls Clubs of America
Looks like the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club could lose its affiliation
with the national group.Directors of the Atlanta-based Boys and Girls Clubs of America will vote next month on whether to strip a New York club of its membership following disclosures that the club improperly loaned $875,000 to Air America, the liberal radio network.
The staff of Boys and Girls Clubs is recommending the board drop the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club of the Bronx from the organization's ranks. The board will meet Sept. 20 in Washington.The Gloria Wise club never provided the national Boys and Girls Clubs of America with the financial audit it was required to file for 2004, which would have revealed the loan, McElroy said.
