Blame it on those rascally White House gatecrashers, the Salahis. Turns out this could be the LEAST of their problems…
Don’t be standing by the door of Michaele and Tareq Salahi’s non-profit Journey For The Cure organization. The rush to pull sponsorships is coming fast and furious.
Former sponsors Land Rover, Ritz Carlton, St. Regis hotels – and even the Indian Embassy – have terminated their relationship with the Cup, given the increasingly cloudy climate hovering over the couple. Their organization – it raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – apparently hasn’t even registered with its home State of Virginia in the last four years! That means you can give all you want through the Salahi’s organization but you won’t get any charitable deductions for it.
All this ugliness has prompted the MS Society to also cut their association with the organization and, by default, the Cup. No doubt the L&L Society will soon follow suit. Imagine that: saying “no thanks” to an organization that raises money for you!
This gatecrashing incident is only one in a long and expensive series of unanswered questions throughout Virginia. There are dozens of lawsuits against the couple from vendors who claim the Salahis never paid them for their services. Claims include debts for everything from gift shop items totaling $128 to unpaid catering expenses topping $300,000.
I don’t know… maybe they’re just misunderstood.
