“Dynamic Catholic’s board recognizes the ‘perceived conflict of interest’ between Kelly’s business interests and the nonprofit organization, Caster said, noting that it has been thoroughly examined by third-party experts and even the Attorney General of Ohio.”
“One longtime Catholic publisher believes Kelly is ‘walking on thin ice’ ethically. ‘He has two pockets,’ Cullen Schippe, who spent 46 years in book publishing, said of Kelly: ‘He takes money out of one pocket and puts it in the other pocket.’"
Even if the arrangement is not ‘technically illegal,’ Schippe said, ‘it certainly is slick.’"
This all boils down to a Perception Issue.
