Has Dr. Phil Dropped Ethics?
What the hell was Dr. Phil thinking about having this group, with no 501 c-3, no record of doing anything for veterans end up getting this kind of exposure?

Local woman Amie Hicks is getting national attention for all the wrong reasons, accused of faking pregnancies and keeping money intended for a veterans nonprofit.
We spoke with Hicks by phone Tuesday. She said the pregnancies were legitimate.
Hicks said she was on the "The Dr. Phil Show" for something else, helping start a nonprofit called Stories in Uniform Vetting America.
The organization raises money for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and other issues. Hicks said on the show $3,000 was raised.
When we asked Hicks about the money, she said the money was never collected.
