Sean Penn Slams Wyclef Jean

Sean Penn isn't exactly thrilled about Wyclef Jean's Presidential announcement.

Wyclef announced this week that he's going to run for President of Haiti, but Sean isn't impressed with the news. He's convinced that Wyclef has misused money donated to his Yele Haiti foundation and it's going to come back to haunt him.

Penn says "He has been virtually silent for those of us in Haiti, he has been a non-presence. His voice has really been most loudly that which allegedly (sic) has taken over 400,000 dollars designated for Haitian relief for himself and claims he didn't do it. That has to be looked into.

"I've been there. I know what 400,000 dollars could do for these people's lives and for a 24-year-old girl right now who is dying. So, I want to see someone who is really, really willing to sacrifice for their country and not just someone who I personally saw with a vulgar entourage of vehicles that demonstrated a wealth in Haiti that - in context, I felt (was) a very obscene demonstration."

Every politician has skeletons in their closet, so we really wouldn't be surprised. But than again, he really has raised a lot of funds for Haiti. Whose side are you on?
