It’s getting real out there. Senator Ted Gaines today called on Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley to investigate Consumer Education Fund based on problems revealed by their IRS form 990 filings.
Like we’ve shared before, the Fund has only one “charity,” Consumer Watchdog, who pays Harvey Rosenfield hundreds of thousands of dollars in consulting fees. Who is the President of the Consumer Education Fund? One Harvey Rosenfield.
Gaines’ call for investigation is appropriate, and proof that someone needs to take a deep look at what Consumer Watchdog is doing and how they were allowed to create a variety of slush funds to enrich themselves. Of course all of this on top of enjoying a virtual monopoly on intervener fees in the state of California and writing a self-serving ballot measure to ensure they profit off consumers.
