Jane Fonda

I Didn't Screw Charities Out of $$

Jane Fonda is NOT a cheapskate whose charity is a charade ... she's actually an extremely generous woman who continues to open her personal vault to worthy causes ... say the people on her team.

Fonda is president and chairman of the Jane Fonda Foundation ... which has been called out by media outlets for not making charitable donations over a recent 5-year period.

Jane donated huge sums back in 2004 and 2005 ... so much that it was supposed to cover the next 5 years, and the amount exceeds the minimum donation required by law ... Jane's people say.

There was, however, a glitch.  In 2011 ... Jane dove back into her bank account to continue making donations.  But someone goofed and paid it out of Jane's personal account rather than the foundation's.  When the mistake came to light, the person who screwed up got the axe.

Foundation officials say that error has been corrected and they're all good now.

So how generous have they been this year? We're told the JFF and the Fonda Family Foundation have given out more than $500K to needy groups.

Ok HANOI JANE! BITCH!

During her trip, Fonda made ten radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military leaders as "war criminals". Fonda has defended her decision to travel to North Vietnam and her radio broadcasts.[37][38] Also during the course of her visit, Fonda visited American prisoners of war (POWs), and brought back messages from them to their families. When cases of torture began to emerge among POWs returning to the United States, Fonda called the returning POWs "hypocrites and liars". She added, "These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed."[39] Later, on the subject of torture used during the Vietnam War, Fonda told The New York Times in 1973, "I'm quite sure that there were incidents of torture ... but the pilots who were saying it was the policy of the Vietnamese and that it was systematic, I believe that's a lie."[40] Fonda said the POWs were "military careerists and professional killers" who are "trying to make themselves look self-righteous, but they are war criminals according to the law".[38]

I don't know any details of her charity financial interactions, but it's been said that "Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda"

I never liked this woman, she bad mouthed our country. The only reason she became famous is because her father was famous. She married the big mouth of the South Ted Turner and she became an expert on every subject.

Hanoi Jane is trash, pure trash. There's a word for women that trade their body for some rich old Billygoat like Ted Turner.

I cannot express how deeply my feelings against this individual reside in me. Prosecute, tax, annoy, hector , & repeat to your hearts content!

I'll pay extra taxes, if they will promise to use for the prosecution of this coomunist north Vietnamese celebrity.
