What'choo talkin' bout, H. Lamar Willis?

Posted By on Tue, Jul 31, 2007 at 8:54 PM

Atlanta City Councilman H. Lamar Willis has responded to last Friday's AJC story alleging his charitable foundation misrepresented its nonprofit status to donors.

In a statement printed in the AJC and posted on the website of Atlanta crisis consulting firm Alisias, Willis admitted the story's core allegation was correct:

Regrettably, however, parts of the foundation's Web site inaccurately describe our status as 501(c)(3). For this error, I am accountable and take full responsibility.

The story did not allege Willis pocketed any of the money, but just in case you were wondering:

Neither I, nor any member of my family, have ever received a single payment from the proceeds raised by the H. Lamar Willis Foundation.
