TRUTH: Michelle Nunn Doubled Her Salary While Laying Off 90 Workers At Charity

Claire Underwood

While overseeing a non-profit merger, Michelle Nunn laid off 90 employees while her own salary more than doubled to $300,000. Today, PolitiFact rated both claims as true.

To sum up our findings on the new ad: The Ending Spending Action Fund is correct that about 90 jobs were abolished when HandsOn Network and Points of Light joined forces. It is also correct that Nunn has earned as much as $300,000 annually as head of the charity, getting a significant raise after the merger.

Nunn got a huge raise while some employees were getting pink slips.
