Taking Names: Virginia reaches settlement with Salahi charity
Virginia Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II’s office said officials have reached a settlement with a charity run by White House party crasher Tareq Salahi for allegedly making false statements, submitting inaccurate financial statements and soliciting donations without being registered with the state.
According to the Associated Press, the settlement with the Journey for the Cure Foundation and Mr. Salahi follows an investigation by the state Office of Consumer Affairs. Under the settlement, the charity must pay $32,500 in civil penalties and attorney fees. Mr. Salahi also must pay $2,500 in penalties.
Mr. Salahi and his wife, Michaele, gained notoriety in 2009 when they crashed a White House state dinner. Earlier this month, Mr. Salahi filed a $50 million lawsuit against his wife claiming she had an affair with Journey guitarist Neal Schon in an attempt to make money for herself and the band at his expense.
Angelo Garcia, founder and director of the Segue Institute for Learning, said the check from Miss Streep's Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts arrived Monday, the Associated Press reports. A note said it was on behalf of Miss Davis, who grew up in Central Falls.
The Segue Institute has more than 200 students in grades six through eight. Mr. Garcia, who grew up with Miss Davis, said the school is trying to raise money to buy the building it’s in or find a new location.
Hudson on witness list in trial on family’s murders
Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson is on the witness list for the upcoming trial of a man accused of killing her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.
The Chicago Tribune reports, however, that prosecutors haven’t yet disclosed whether Miss Hudson will actually testify at William Balfour’s trial, which is slated to begin April 9.
Mr. Balfour was the estranged husband of Miss Hudson’s sister, Julia. Miss Hudson’s mother and brother were found dead in the family’s home on Chicago’s South Side in 2008. Her nephew’s body was found days later in a vehicle on the city’s West Side.
