SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Well, it looks like things are going from bad to worse for Invisible Children and the KONY 2012 campaign. Just a week after Jason Russell was arrested and put on a psychiatric hold after running naked through the streets of San Diego, another IC big-shot is in the news for the wrong reasons.
Earlier today, a video of Jedidiah Jenkins, Invisible Children's Director of Idealogy, surfaced of a drunk Jenkins, chugging vodka and making jokes about keeping money donated to the foundation. The video is said to be from 2010, right after Invisible Children won a $1 million grand prize in the Chase Community Giving Facebook competition.
In the video, Jenkins is seen saying "I don't know if you heard this or not ... but we won a ... we won a million dollars so ... pretty rad...A hundred thousand for Haiti and $900,000 in extra for me." (The contest was held one week after the earthquake in Haiti and Invisible Children had promised to give $100k to Haitian relief efforts if they won the prize)
A source close to Invisible Children says the video was made as a joke and it was water, not vodka in the bottle. No official response from the organization has been made.
