The New York Post claims that President Obama’s half-brother runs an “off-the-books” foundation “that claims to support poor Kenyans — but it lies about its federal status and no one knows how it spends its money.”

Alton Ray Baysden, a former State Department employee at whose Virginia home the charity was founded in 2008, admitted the organization has not even applied for tax-exempt status.

“We haven’t been able to find someone with the expertise to do this,” he told The Post. “We are informally scouting for an executive director, someone who knows how to register the charity.”
