Exclusive: Some charities to refuse money from U.S. financier accused in sex case

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 23:59

Mount Sinai Hospital is pictured in the Manhattan borough of New YorkBy David Ingram NEW YORK (Reuters) - Some charities that have received money from U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein said they are reviewing their relationships with him or will decline to accept any future gifts from him in the wake of recent allegations he forced an underage girl to have sex with Britain's Prince Andrew and other powerful men.

The filing has also renewed questions about Epstein's once close links to former U.S. President Bill Clinton, though there are no allegations of any wrongdoing by Clinton.
