Justice Department: Head of Philadelphia Gun Buyback Effort Accused of Excessive Raises, Expenses

The head of Philadelphia’s gun buyback program is under intense scrutiny over excessive raises and expenses, Reuters reports, citing a U.S. Department inspector general report.

Raymond Jones, executive director of Philadelphia’s Safety Net, did not receive authority for the expenses by the group’s board of directors, which included his sister.

The audit found that Jones received $82,000 in unauthorized raises over four years. Jones’ salad in 2010 was $146,378, compared to his authorized salary of $90,000.

“We believe the executive director’s compensation was unallowable and unreasonable,” the audit report said.
