Pat Robertson Threatens To Sue Filmmakers Over African Charity Expose

Pat Robertson's Operation Blessings "charity" is threatening to sue the filmmakers behind Mission Congo, a documentary which claims that the charity scammed millions intended for African relief.
In an email Thursday, Chris Roslan, a spokesman for Operation Blessing, said allegations in the production company’s film promotion and the listing in the film festival website were false and defamatory and, “We are considering legal action.” After an order by the attorney general, the Virginia Office of Consumer Affairs investigated Operation Blessing in the 1990s and accused the charity of “misrepresenting what its flights were doing.” No prosecution took place. Robertson has consistently denied the accusation of misusing donations and claimed that Virginia authorities’ failure to prosecute effectively cleared him of any wrongdoing.
