My office has a view of the roof of the BAM. I can never tell if it's a shitload of water or some mirror floor in this little open section (The side facing opposite of Bell Square). Why a mirror, or why no drain? Drives me nuts.
I put a lot of stock into thinking about the dumbest shit. I bet the answer is so obvious I haven't been able to catch it in the 7 months I've been stuck here. I'm a moron.
That "fundraising opportunity" comment fucking slays me. That's kinda like how those cruise ship passengers had a "bailing opportunity." Or how when you get shot you have a "bleeding out opportunity." Wrong-footed, I think they call it.
Yep. An organization so lacking in oversight as to allow one of its own employees to embezzle $200,000 sure inspires me to donate. I'll break out my checkbook immediately.
And what's with the "internal investigation"? WTF. Call the cops, you idiots. Some asswipe stole $200,000. That's called "theft". It isn't merely a fundraising opportunity. It's actually against the law. You should not only be naming names, the asswipe should be in jail. The police aren't just there for traffic tickets and assaults. They actually have a fraud division exactly for this kind of shit.
Um... they have a legal opportunity. Why would the fact that they can't keep an employee from stealing money encourage people to give them more?
I appreciate BAM's interest in transparency, but the way Monroe blows it off saying "this happens all the time" in nonprofits is alarming. Not if you are using proper internal controls, it doesn't.
Anyone can get robbed, but BAM's response does nothing to instill trust in the organization's ability to manage its money properly.
"Fundraising opportunity" !
I need to apply for that position.
I think the CFO at BAM was already several steps ahead of you.
Unless you think you'd be better at the not getting caught part, that is.
2 possibilities come to mind.
1: That BAM is staffed by total incompetents.
2: That BAM's staff is in the process of guilting / extorting the ex-staffer in question (and/or ex-staffer's family) to cough up the cash.
If they get the money back, it will probably be under an agreement that they not file charges. If they don't....
Good money after bad.
I'm confused -- he stole $200k, and he gets "let go"? Why isn't he in a jail cell? If some bum around here picked up a twenty that wasn't his he'd be in County before he had time to read the serial number.
Embezzlement? Cranes that fall down? This is an opportunity begging for an installation.
