An internal audit of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeast Louisiana found the executive director spent nearly $8,000 during one year at New Orleans area restaurants to feed herself and other employees, even though her contract didn't include such perks.
The questionable meals and entertainment tab is part of an audit that discovered the private nonprofit has troubling discrepancies in its financial accounting system, many of which point to its former leader.

Robin Houston, 56, of Kenner, was asked to resign from the nonprofit's top post earlier this year, and the organization plans a national search for her successor. She had been in charge for the past three years. "
