Hannity’s Charity Replies to Scam Charge

Freedom Alliance, the charity that hosts Freedom Concerts in conjunction with Sean Hannity, has issued a response to conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel’s charge that the operation is “all a huge scam.” Schlussel wrote that tax returns show the group spending less than 20 percent of its funds on charitable causes, but Freedom Alliance says it has spent at least 75 percent of its money on “program activities” for each of the past three years. It also says that it has never provided planes, hotels, cars, limos, or anything else to Hannity.
