AKA battles internal discord; President sued

WASHINGTON (NNPA) - Members of the country’s oldest Black sorority are suing to remove their president, alleging she spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of the group’s money on herself – some of it to pay for a wax statue in her own likeness.
Eight members of Alpha Kappa Alpha filed the complaint in D.C. Superior Court on June 20 ‘’to restore their beloved sorority to its former high standards of governance, corporate transparency and active member communication,’’ according to the complaint. The suit demands McKinzie be fired and the money returned to the sorority.
This is extraordinarily shocking if not illegal conduct,’’ Edward W. Gray Jr., an attorney representing the plaintiffs suing the Chicago-based sorority, said Wednesday according to the Associated Press.
