How serious is this? Check this out...

The official Yele charity web site Yele.org, has been shut down, and the domain name is expired as of 10/08/2012, on its way to the Haitian Internet graveyard.

In a New York Times article, Deborah Sontag writes...

"In a new memoir, Wyclef Jean, the Haitian-born hip-hop celebrity, claims he endured a "crucifixion" after the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake when he faced questions about his charity's financial record and ability to handle what eventually amounted to $16 million in donations."

But, as Sontag writes, an ongoing investigation by the NY attorney general's office has found financial improprieties at the nonprofit, which effectively went out of business in September, "leaving a trail of debts, unfinished projects and broken promises."

Wow... Wow... Wow...

based of how long yele is on the ground, based on what he does, and based on how much money he collected, Wyclef which is apprently a true patriot had done little for haiti.

Wyclef is from crois des bouquets, and croix des bouquets doesn't look good at all, and wyclef projects were too light...

he only gave food, and the only important thing I think he did for haiti was the "delmas bel"which lst only two years.

I can't believe that everyone is so blind and can't see this for what it really is, a smear campaign against someone who really wants to help.

Wyclef actually cares about Haiti and was trying to help. He was out there helping before the earthquake.

After the earthquake he was out there picking up dead bodies off the street.

Remember that!
