JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Following media reports last year of lavish spending by Jacksonville-based Wounded Warrior Project, the U.S. Senate launched its own investigation of the nonprofit. That Senate committee released its critical findings on Wednesday, and the nonprofit’s CEO said the organization will be reviewing the report through the weekend to learn how it can improve.
The Senate Judiciary Committee said the charity “inaccurately” reported the money it spent on veterans’ programs by using “inflated” numbers and “misleading” advertisements. The committee found “excessive amounts of donor contributions that were misused” by WWP’s former leadership.
