Save Our Cemeteries, the nonprofit focused on preserving New Orleans cemeteries, might be in grave trouble (sorry). WWL reports that the organization is under scrutiny from the state for possibly mismanaging a grant.
The investigation began after employee Emily Ford, whose job with the organization was funded by a grant from the state historic preservation office, says she was being paid less than half of the amount outlined in the grant. After Ford hired an attorney, SOC withheld a paycheck and fired her.
This might be a case of federal fraud. Head on over to WWL for the full story.
