CDC gives $2.633 million to Save-A-Life Foundation; SALF treasurer is CDC Deputy Director

CDC gives $2.633 million to Save-A-Life Foundation; SALF treasurer is CDC Deputy Director

Since 2000, the Save-A-Life Foundation (SALF) received at least $2.633 million from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Meanwhile a CDC Deputy Director, Douglas R. Browne, has been SALF's treasurer for most of those years.

Douglas R. Browne listed on Save-A-Life Foundation 50-states corporate filings: http://is.gd/5mfBp

Much of the funding came from a CDC division called the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC). According to the Federal Register, Browne was the grants project manager for this division shortly before NCIPC gave SALF $1 million+.

From the document:

p3 (2000) - $921,000
p6 (2001) - $37,000
p9 (2003) - $1,175,000
p10 (2005) - $500,000 (continuing earmark)

TOTAL: $2,663,000 + any later earmark payments

Which elected officials are responsible for arranging the CDC funding? According to SALF newletters (see pages 37-38 of the document):

"We can't forget those Illinois Congressional Delegates; Speaker Dennis Hastert, 14th Dist., Congressmen John Shimkus 9th Dist., Mark Kirk 10th Dist., Tim Johnson, 15th Dist. and Jerry Weller 11th Dist., who awarded SALF appropriations through Centers for Disease Control. Without them, SALF wouldn't have been able to meet its growing challenges, and tens of thousands of district children would not be afforded their God given right of knowing how to save the life of a loved one."

Save-A-Life Foundation clearly failed to train two million school children in first aid as the foundation has claimed. In fact, records indicate they may have trained less than 15,000 people over 16 years. Where then did the millions in federal dollars go? Why aren't the Congressionmen who arranged the funding - Kirk, Johnson, and Shimkus are still in office - calling for an investigation?
