What then, is your interpretation of "To our knowledge, Mr Litton has not received any donations intended for the CF Foundation directly."
That statement is basically saying "We have no knowledge of any charity donation wrongdoing by Kip Litton." You guys should stop trying to read more into it than is there.
I think you're reading less into the statement than what CF wrote. Why is the word "directly" in the quote? CF is saying that they are unaware of anyone directing donations directly to WorldRecordRun or Kip. They believe that all donations were made directly to CF.
I am not drawing any conclusions. It may be that 1) nobody ever wrote Kip a check, or 2) that he cashed checks written to him then took the funds and donated them directly to CF without CF ever being aware of the initial checks, or 3) something else may have occurred.
At this point there's no evidence to support any of the three options; so they are all on the board as possibilities.
