(Best Syndication News) Best-selling author and humanitarian, Greg Mortenson, is being accused of lying to sell books. There are also accusations that his charities spend more money on domestic fundraising than they do actually building schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

There are schools being built by Mortenson’s non-profit, according to a report by CBS 60-Minutes. But the schools being built by the Central Asia Institute (CAI) are not receiving the continued funding to keep them open. Some schools visited sit “empty”.

Despite the accusation, Mortenson stands by the accuracy of his books.

“It is extraordinary that the President sees federal funding for the nation’s number one abortion provider as more important than paychecks for federal workers and funding for our military,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List said.
