National NAACP suspends head of Philadelphia chapter

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - April 11, 2014

The national NAACP said in a statement Friday that there is an "internal administrative process which provides suspended members with a right to appeal," and adding it would not comment further.

The suspended board members - Donald Birts, the Rev. Elisha Morris and Sid Booker - have accused Mondesire of mishandling the group's finances. Mondesire has vehemently denied the allegations.

Mondesire did not respond to a call seeking comment. Gerard Egan, an attorney for the three board members, said his clients would contest their suspensions.
