As if BAM hasn’t been through enough, Regina Hackett reports this morning that the museum has sent a letter to its members announcing that the museum’s chief financial officer has stolen $200,000.
The museum has let the employee go and didn’t name names to the P-I. It’s conducting an internal investigation, and viewing this as “a fundraising opportunity,” director Michael Monroe told Hackett.
