A 64-percent raise? Nice work if you can get it, presiding over a tanking charity that got bludgeoned by pro-aborts in Congress and the media when it tried briefly to get out of bed with Planned Parenthood. Since then, donations are down and Komen recently canceled half (7 cities) of its three-day races.

"... But 10 months later, Brinker still holds her position and tax documents reveal that she received a 64 percent raise and now makes $684,000 a year, according to the charity’s latest available tax filing. Komen says the raise came in November 2010, prior to last year’s controversy.

"Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator, which evaluates and rates charities, called Brinker’s salary “extremely high.”

“This pay package is way outside the norm," he said. "It's about a quarter of a million dollars more than what we see for charities of this size.... This is more than the head of the Red Cross is making for an organization that is one-tenth the size of the Red Cross.”
