The CNN link: Doh! Too many Does spark scouts probe
The AP story: FBI probing Alabama Boy Scout organization
A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean & Reverent
You don't see Clever
in that list.
Apparently some people associated with the Boy Scouts in Alabama are being investigated because of seemingly inflated membership numbers.
I don't want to prejudge the case. Just because there are Boy Scout troops that no one can locate, or activities where all of the scouts seem to be named Doe, isn't proof. I mean the troops could be on an extended camp out for a year or two, and some families are extended, often by marrying cousins, this is Alabama after all.
The reason the FBI is involved is because of the way the Boy Scouts are funded, with some of the funding coming from the government. Much of the funding is based on the number of people an organization serves.
On the other hand, you can be sure that no gays or atheists were involved in the problem, just straight, G-d fearing Republican supporters of Judge Roy Moore and the Ten Commandments
[well, most of them].
Disclaimer: I was a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Explorer. I had a lot of fun because the leaders I had taught skills and accepted that most of us were savages.
