stuhayes2010: I've personally raised over $2000 for her. I feel so good about that now.


You should feel like a failure. Only 2000$? That won't last her six hours. Next time you do some charity work, I want you to imagine Brinker flying in gasp! business class. Maybe that'll light a fire under you, slacker.

jasimo: I've always thought that charities should go out of their way to be above reproach. It seems that most charities, including SGK, don't share my views.

No one working for a charity should ever fly first class or stay in an expensive hotel. If the charity they're working for is important to them, shouldn't they rather want to spend that extra money to further the charities goals? If the charity isn't important to them, they should GTFO.

Brinker should also GTFO.


Watch it there, sonny. Next thing you know, you'll be saying that the Pope doesn't need any glitter on his funny hat.

It's amazing how many of you Farktard liberals don't recognize a hatchet job when you see one. You should because you are experts at it. OMG $133,000 over 3 freaking years....OMG SHE CHARGED THEM $44K per year...after she helped them raise $1.9 BILLION.

She made the mistake of messing with the abortion loving liberals at Planned Parenthood and now is paying the price. Keep reveling in the comeuppance of someone who has done more good in her life than all you pathetic farktard liberals combined.

RexTalionis: Lsherm: The organization's 2011 financial statement reports that 43 percent of donations were spent on education, 18 percent on fund-raising and administration, 15 percent on research awards and grants, 12 percent on screening and 5 percent on treatment. (Various other items accounted for the rest.) (new window)

Once again - you're relying on Susan G. Komen to be honest with you in its publicity material?


Interesting. They have "for the Cure" in their name yet spend more on fundraising and administration costs that research awards and grants. Maybe they should change their name to "for the Win".

FlashHarry: the more you dig into this "charity," the more it stinks. their planned parenthood flap will reverberate for a long time. it might even prove fatal.


funny thing is Brinker probably hired Handel to secretly cut ties and destroy PP but ironically the plan backfired and now it seems like Handel may have inadverdently destroy SGK instead.

..... also I don;t care what good etc she had done before.. for her to demand her staff to address as Ambassador Brinker is ridiculous and just disdain arragance.

ani23: while charity is noble and all that would you rather

a. pay 200k to an "ok" CEO who brings in 10 million a year
b. pay 400k to someone more capable who brings in 50 million a year.

just food for thought


Why not pay $100K for a great CEO who brings in $100 million a year? I say we give it a try, no need to put a limit on how much a CEO might bring in based on their salary...

themeaningoflifeisnot: Sure, Brinker's misuse of funds is wrong. And she should pay the price. But isn't this a rather disturbingly frequent problem with many major charities? If it's generally not right to let an individual's financial malfeasance taint the whole charitable organization, why is it ok to write off Komen's charitable mission as a failure just because of Brinker's misdeeds?


Because it isn't clear that the charity actually does much good. Largely they provide some funding for screening activities that are being shown to be less and less effective as time goes on. They are a front for big pharma, and won't support or fund other important things that breast cancer patients need or could use. They don't seem to be funding anything that would produce a cure for breast cancer...you know, their slogan that they are suing everyone else over.

c. Pay 400k to a worthless coont who ends up smearing your entire namesake and nearly tearing an organization to the ground over political motivations.

Charities mostly exist to give people jobs and for certain people to launder money. Might as well just give your money directly to the homeless but I understand that isn't a tax write-off.

All the other charity CEOs get $400k a year, so clearly she needs $500k a year to remain respectable.
