American Legion Investigates Suspected $100+K Embezzlement At Post In Oklahoma; Former Head Ousted For Improprieties

From Tulsa World on 2/24/14:

The American Legion national headquarters is investigating its Oklahoma offices after the embezzlement of least $100,000, The Oklahoman has learned.

The investigation comes after the former Oklahoma American Legion adjutant was charged in January with selling ceremonial World War I and World War II rifles for personal profit.

The outcome of the investigation could be as drastic as the ouster of the state department's entire current leadership.
"We won't know more until after the visit and report is completed and adopted by our board of directors in May," said Joe March, media director for The American Legion national headquarters.
