Air America: ripping off children for a better future

From the New York Post...

Air America's foot-dragging on repaying $875,000 borrowed from a beleaguered Boys & Girls Club in The Bronx has nothing to do with a probe of the club's controversial loans, city investigators said yesterday.
Officials at the ultra-liberal radio network have repeatedly said Air America intends to repay the money, but claimed they put those plans on hold because of the city probe.

"We're waiting for directions from the investigators on how to proceed," Air America spokeswoman Jamie Horn said this week.

But the Department of Investigation said there is nothing to prevent the radio network from repaying its debt immediately.

"DOI has done nothing and given no instruction preventing payment of money owed to Gloria Wise [Boys & Girls Club]. Any statements to the contrary are inaccurate," said DOI spokesman Keith Schwam....

...it was revealed that the Boys & Girls Club's executive director, Charles Rosen, earned a whopping $229,686 in 2002 — the latest year records are available — after pocketing an additional $79,960 from one of the club's affiliates.

So why isn't the loan itself being investigated?
