Hannity loves his Charity

One of our most powerful Republican standard bearers, Sean Hannity, is under attack by liberal bloggers for contributing just 12 percent or less of the millions he makes with his "Freedom Concerts" for wounded soldiers and their families. Sean gives so much, so much, but apparently not enough for some people. It is a positive scandal that they are looking so closely at these stupid percentages.

It might be the case that a charity is considered "legitimate" or "functional" when it gives 75 percent of its total donations to the people for whom they were intended, but when you have earned your star power as Sean Hannity has, well, you're going to have some bigger expenses. So what?

This is the disgusting picture some liberal web site ran to discredit our man Hannity:

The awful site that ran this picture reports that "less than 20%–and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively–of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes, while millions of dollars went to expenses and consultants.

The site also claims that "despite Hannity’s statements to the contrary on his nationally syndicated radio show, few of the children of fallen soldiers got more than $1,000-$2,000, with apparently none getting more than $6,000, while Freedom Alliance appears to have spent tens of thousands of dollars for private planes.  

Hannity deserves to travel in the style in which his favorite charity has accustomed him. He needs a Gulfstream 5 to fly him and his family and entourage to the concerts. He needs a fleet of Cadillac or Lincoln SUVs and several suites at five-star hotels. Who doesn't? 

This hacker writes, "Keep in mind that a charity is considered reputable if no more than 25% of its revenue goes to expenses and no less than 75% of it goes to the intended charity recipients. . .  

"According to its 2006 tax returns, Freedom Alliance reported revenue of $10,822,785, but only $397,900 – or a measly 3.68% – of that was given to the children of fallen troops as scholarships or as aid to severely injured soldiers.

"On the other hand, 62% of the money went to 'expenses,' including $979,485 for 'consultants' and an 'advisor.' Yes, consultant/advisors got more than double what injured troops and the kids of fallen troops got. The tax forms show that 'New World Aviation' got paid $60,601 for 'air travel.' Was that for Hannity’s G5? Like I said, neither the charity nor Hannity is talking. And finally, that year, Freedom Alliance spent $1,730,816 on postage and shipping and $1,414,215 on printing, for a total of $3,145,031, nearly half the revenue the charity spent that year and about eight times what the injured troops and the children of fallen ones received."

This is the kind of thing that makes me sick – that someone would attack a true patriot and a real American hero like Sean Hannity for working so hard to support the troops.
