CNN commentator Van Jones says he’s launching another non-profit after he was forced out of the criminal justice non-profit he founded.
Jones was ousted from the board of his Dream.org non-profit 2 years after Amazon founder Jeff Bezos handed him $100 million.
Jones is publicly humiliated after getting the boot from yet another organization he founded.
“He can’t stay at anything for longer than a few years before passing it off,” one former employee told The Daily Beast. Another former employee said that Jones has a habit of “moving on to the next thing, and possibly not creating the best infrastructure before he leaves.”
One source told The Beast that Jones, who briefly dated Kim Kardashian, did not leave by choice.
Dream.org has laid off multiple staffers even though the organization is swimming in money.
A Dream subsidiary also laid off employees, despite receiving a $10 million grant from Bezos’ climate fund in 2020. The group went on a spending spree with no accounting for how the cash was spent.
Jones’ spokesperson said the CNN star is working to launch a new non-profit initiative, “which will be announced soon.”
