California non-profits may have been victims of fraud

A slew of California non-profits are checking their books to see if they were victims of financial fraud by a veteran political money-manager.

Kinde Durkee is free on bond after being arraigned on charges of siphoning money out of a state assemblyman's campaign. Money may also have been taken from Senator Dianne Feinstein's campaign war chest.

Now, authorities say Durkee's company kept the books for at least three dozen non-profits -- ranging from a Los Altos firm that wants to get rid of the Electoral College, to the Latino Diabetes Association.
