Leavitt Defends Family Charity Foundation

From Times Wire Reports

Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt defended his family’s charitable giving, as two senators called for tighter regulation of private foundations. Leavitt and his relatives have reportedly claimed millions of dollars in tax deductions through a charitable foundation that until recently paid out little in actual charity.

A spokeswoman for Leavitt said the foundation’s activities are “totally legal and proper.”
