Ouch. Our sometimes friend and sometimes adversary Steve Maviglio uncovered some pretty shocking allegations about Harvey Rosenfield and his friends at Consumer Watchdog. You can read his good work here.

Basically, Harvey created a non-profit corporation that made one grant (to Consumer Watchdog, obviously) and paid himself $100,000 plus $95,000 in expenses and his friend Jamie Court $200,000 to administer it. Wow. We knew Harvey was only interested in lining his own pockets and maintaining his comfortable Marina del Rey lifestyle but this is just plain sleazy.

Why aren’t they using that money to protect consumers? After all isn’t that their mission?  Or is the mission to make an easy buck?
