Lyons: Tax-exempt status doesn’t exempt fraud
This week’s fraud indictment of the director and key employees of a local nonprofit organization designed to help homeless veterans might have shocked many here, but the only surprise to Gary Snyder was that government investigators were able to follow through.
John Blanchard of Crystal Lake and some of Blanchard’s family members and staff from the National Association of Systems Administrators Education Corp. and Liberating Solutions Corp. were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of wire fraud, mail fraud and providing false statements and documents.
Snyder, of West Bloomfield, Mich., has been studying fraud in the nonprofit sector for seven years, and is the author of hundreds of articles, the book “Nonprofits: On the Brink,” a blog and a twice-a-month newsletter.
