Musician Wyclef Jean’s Haiti-relief charity has hired new accountants after admitting earlier this week that financial “mistakes” had been made, the AP reports. The Yele Haiti Foundation came under scrutiny last week when it was accused of paying Jean for a benefit performance and buying advertising time from a TV station he co-owns. New accounting firm RSM McGladrey will oversee the funds from now on, with all donations going to earthquake relief, the foundation announced; funds to cover overhead expenses will be raised separately. Jean is one of the co-hosts of tonight’s Hope for Haiti Now telethon.
