Tina Brown's "Charity" Scooped Up Millions, Most of Which Was Spent on Lavish Parties in Her Honor

In 2011, Brown's charity gave out a single grant of $10,000.

It raised $1.17 million that year. It claimed over $500,000 in expenses; over $100,000 was for a Launch Party.

I think this is where a lot of the New Class' "charity" money winds up going: Networking and self-dealing in the form of lavish parties.

Gawker beats up on her some more.

Here's where I think we need more populism: The wealthiest one percent -- yeah, I said it -- has set up quite a few schemes for their own benefit and no one else's.

I also happen to think such people are overwhelmingly leftist (or at least culturally of the New Class, and thus at least sympathetic to the left) and so I can't say I would really mind a little drubbing.

I'm not talking about increasing their taxes -- that's their money.

But crap like this. Or crap like CEO's donating corporate money (which is shareholder money) to a swanky left-leaning charity ball and then showing up at that ball themselves -- it wasn't their money. It was shareholder money. Why do they get the glory of the gratitude and the even more important glory of the Shrimp Buffet?

I mean did you see those shrimp? They were the size of SUVs.

And don't get me started on Washington DC, the city that produces absolutely nothing at all and yet is fat and rich on the hard work of the hinterlands. There isn't a dime spent in Washington that isn't earned somewhere else.
