CONCORD, N.H.—New Hampshire says it has started an investigation into the state chapter of the U.S. Navy Veterans Association, after attorneys general in four other states shut theirs down.
The New Hampshire chapter, based in Tampa, Fla. and Washington, D.C., is a nonprofit, charitable organization registered with state attorney general's office.
Attorney General Michael Delaney has urged potential donors to use caution. He said his counterparts in New Mexico, Florida, Ohio and Hawaii have shut down its fund-raising operations.
Delaney cited a recent St. Petersburg Times article that said the group's board of directors has quit and disappeared.
