The Wikimedia Foundation historically, if not at the present, has undertaken some very suspicious financial transactions that are mostly accounted in public sources, but have been "swept under the rug" by the Foundation management. Seeking a U.S.-based accountant with direct experience in auditing especially non-profit charitable organizations that have come unglued from their stated mission and purpose. We need not have a formal or official assessment of the Wikimedia Foundation's past financial reports, but rather, simply an informed and experienced accountant's opinion about whether or not any of these past lapses in ethical accountability were (a) potentially illegal, and if so (b) still actionable today, and by which authority.
We will provide about three or four detailed leads (web links, news stories, Form 990 filings, etc.) that will be the focus of your assessment.
Payment will be higher for an accountant willing to put his/her name and reputation behind the analysis and commentary; otherwise, we can work from a position of "a reliable source who wished to remain anonymous". Please indicate whether you will or will not consent to your name being credited with the research in public correspondence and journalistic publications.
