If certain Texans have their way, the Texas Attorney General will be opening an investigation of the American Red Cross, its fundraising practices, and its actual expenditures towards Hurricane Harvey relief.

The Texas Nationalist Movement posted this petition. It reads:

Horror stories are pouring in from across Texas of the behavior of the American Red Cross in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. All the while, the Red Cross is collecting massive amounts of money from well-meaning citizens purportedly to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, yet it seems that little of it is being used for that purpose. We believe that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton should open an investigation into the operations of the American Red Cross for fraud.

When you sign the petition, an email will be sent directly to Paxton’s office that reads:

“I respectfully request that you open an investigation into the actions of the American Red Cross during Hurricane Harvey. While they are collecting donations in the name of the victims of Hurricane Harvey it is becoming increasingly apparent that very little of those donations are actually going to the victims. This appears to be fraud.”

The Red Cross has admitted “misleading language” (also known as lying) in their financial reports. ProPublica produced a report for National Public Radio which you can read here. It outlines the “misleading language” and what the Red Cross has done about it.
