Democrats Want Hip Hop Thief to Run Haiti
- Penn discussed past allegations that Jean mishandled funds from his nonprofit organization Yele Haiti, and mentioned the criticism Jean when he allegedly used funds donated for Haitians on himself. Jean denied that he misappropriated funds from his charity, but he recently resigned as chairman of the Yele Haiti Foundation.
"He claims he didn't do it. That has to be looked into it," Penn said. "I've been there. I know what $400,000 could do for these people's lives."
