Disgraced ex-USA Today reporter now does charity work, lives in $2M home
The Washington Post's Neely Tucker set out to find out what Jack Kelley -- fired by USA Today in 2004 for sweeping and substantial plagiarism and fabrications -- is doing now. "It is not clear whether Kelley is working now, but he does sometimes volunteer with Free the Children, a Toronto-based nonprofit that does education and development work around the world," writes Tucker.
Kelley lives with his wife, Jacki, and their young daughter in a $2 million home in New Canaan. Jacki Kelley, once an advertising executive at USA Today, is now global chief executive for Universal McCann, a media agency based in New York. Messages left on the Kelleys’ home voice mail and at Jacki Kelley’s office were not returned. An express mail letter was returned after no one signed for three attempted deliveries.
