Description

CBS investigates "widespread mismanagement and fraud" the Red Cross has been grappling with. Based on internal memos and audits, the series reports on how Joseph Lecowitch, head of the New Jersey chapter stole more than one million dollars. Other findings are that many chapters have not remitted their Sept. 11 donations to national headquarters; chapters are dipping into the National Disaster Fund "for unnamed purposes;" blood has been taken from donors who said they tested positive for AIDS or were not properly screened; and suspected transfusion-related diseases are not investigated.
