Senator Charles Grassley is promising a review of the American Red Cross. Grassley’s concerned by reports that the agency isn’t using donations appropriately and lacks proper management. Grassley sent Red Cross executives a five-page letter Thursday, asking for reams of documents like minutes from board meetings from the past five years and executive pay records. He also said the public should get more than a “papering over” of the reasons behind the recent departure of Red Cross president Marsha Evans. Grassley’s also asking the Red Cross to explain its spending practices. Grassley and his Senate Finance Committee conducted a review of the Red Cross response to the September 11th attacks and got the group to change its donation policies so individuals may direct their checks to certain projects.
