Charitable Swindler

A former director of finance and 13-year veteran of Goodwill/Easter Seals Minnesota, Raymond Weeks, was charged with stealing nearly $162,000 from the nonprofit organization over 2 ½ years. According to the Pioneer Press, who called it “looting,? Weeks told investigators just how easy it was to take the cash that came in through monthly car auctions and hide it with accounting tricks.

The Pioneer Press put this story on its front page, above the fold, yet the Star Tribune buried it in the middle of page four of its regional section.
