Peace Not Present Around Crawford Protest House

By  | 

CRAWFORD, Texas -- The situation is anything but peaceful for a group that's sponsored war protests in President Bush's adopted hometown of Crawford.

The Crawford Peace House recently lost its corporate charter. A former member who now has rights to the name is threatening
legal action because the group continues operating.

Sara Oliver wants a state investigation on why less than $15,000 remain in its bank account. Critics say tens of thousands of dollars donated during Cindy Sheehan's 2005 war protest are unaccounted for.

Peace House co-founder John Wolf denies wrongdoing. Wolf says the claims are only by a few people and wouldn't hurt the work of the Crawford Peace House, which plans a fourth anniversary celebration Sunday. He says the Peace House has kept diligent records.

Wolf plans to turn in the franchise tax report next week - nearly one year late - to the state to regain the Peace House's corporate charter.
