Singer and former candidate for President of Haiti, Wyclef Jean has been accused by the New York Post of squandering funds intended for Haitian earthquake victims.

The Post reports that only one third of the money from Jean’s Yele Haiti charity made it to Haitian emergency relief efforts.

Reuters reports:

The Post also reported that a company called P&A Construction — which is run by Warnel Pierre, Jean’s brother-in-law — received $353,983 from the group.
