Non profit corruption is rampant in our society. It's a license to steal. Our government needs to be more aggressive in prosecuting the non profit crooks.

While many non profits do amazing work, nonprofits getting state funds in ny unfortunately are in many cases simply milking the system.
Thenys legislature is incredibly venal and corrupt. Im a liberal , but this situation is a great case for SMALL GOVERNMENT, !
Is it really efficient and cheaper to have government contract out services to dozens of nonprofits, each with their own administrative staff, overhead etc.....

I worked at Ridgewood-Bushwick for a couple of months in 1992, and I never saw any evidence that any regular citizen was being genuinely helped by any of Ridgewood-Bushwick's activities. I can't think of a single such instance.

From my experience, seems that these poverty-pimps abound in the non-profit community.
