Guess what? He's in the news again!!!!! From AP:
A convicted thief with a history of using phony resumes to gain leadership positions at nonprofit organizations was fired by local American Red Cross officials for using bogus credentials to become a fund-raising officer.
"He presents himself well, speaks very well. He relies entirely on his personality to gain entrance into these organizations to do what he does," said Michael Zoeller, chairman of the San Gabriel Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross.
Fred Brito, 50, of Los Angeles was hired Aug. 10 after using the name Fred Brito Gomez and presenting false credentials. Brito said he is a five-time felon who has repeatedly fabricated his qualifications because society will not allow him to succeed honestly.
He was proud of his work at the local Red Cross chapter, which has raised $2.1 million for Hurricane Katrina relief. Brito said he didn't steal any money.
"I have to survive, I have to work," Brito said. "If I have to provide a resume that is not quite accurate, I have to work."
Brito has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for various crimes dating back to 1978, authorities said.
Red Cross chapter chief Angie Turner said the organization reviewed Brito's resume and application and performed reference and criminal background checks.
