Minnesota attorney general files lawsuit against Eden Prairie charity


Attorney General Lori Swanson today filed a lawsuit against A Brighter Day Foundation (ABDF), an Eden Prairie charity to help at-risk youth, and its executive director, alleging that they misspent charitable assets for the personal benefit of the executive director.

“Minnesotans are generous with their charitable giving, and a charity should spend funds to further its charitable mission, not for personal gain,” said Swanson in a news release.
