The The Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund was set up by the two former presidents to help raise money for relief after the Hurricane disaster down in the gulf states. Last night they held a telethon during the football games with former and current NFL stars manning the phones. I could not find any press releases that state how much money they earned from it, but it seemed to be going strong as they cut over to it during commercial breaks during the game. President Bush was in the broadcasters booth for a little while during the Saints “home opener” last night, and he explained how the fund gives the money to the Governors and how there is an audit to make sure that the money goes where it is supposed to and is not funneled into unnecessary projects.
