Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

AL­BANY, N.Y. >> The New York at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice has or­dered the Trump Foun­da­tion to im­me­di­ately stop fundrais­ing in the state, say­ing it isn’t reg­is­tered to do so.

A let­ter dated Fri­day stated that the fail­ure to stop im­me­di­ately and an­swer de­mands for all delin­quent fi­nan­cial re­ports within 15 days “shall be deemed a con­tin­u­ing fraud upon the peo­ple of the state of New York.”

Demo­cratic At­tor­ney Gen­eral Eric Sch­nei­der­man has been in­ves­ti­gat­ing Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump’s foun­da­tion fol­low­ing Wash­ing­ton Post re­ports that foun­da­tion spend­ing per­son­ally ben­e­fited the can­di­date. The news­pa­per also re­ported that the char­ity has been funded en­tirely from out­side do­na­tions since 2008, when Trump made his last con­tri­bu­tion to it.

The at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice said the foun­da­tion had a reg­is­tra­tion, but the law re­quires a dif­fer­ent reg­is­tra­tion for those that so­licit more than $25,000 a year from the pub­lic.
