Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo is moving against United Homeless Organization, which raises money around New York for the homeless. Coumo alleges that it is a scam organization that does not support a single shelter or soup kitchen. Cuomo says that the money goes to the workers themselves and the rest goes to the group’s founder and president, Stephen Riley, and its director, Myra Walker.
Cuomo says that his office found money going to such distinctly non-homeless causes as Weightwatchers.com, Toys “R” Us, P. C. Richard, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and premium cable for their homes.
Cuomo noted that there is no record for how much of the cash was spent and that the organization does not have the required independent oversight or board.
