OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma City-based charity is facing a takeover attempt by a Texas man, who says it’s badly mismanaged and needs a "major housecleaning."

The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/1NZ6d9T ) reports that Edward Roush Jr. of Dallas has been demanding changes at Feed The Children since acquiring the rights to videos, papers and other property belonging to ousted founder Larry Jones for $1.

Roush claims the charity’s warehouse had no food when he visited in June. The charity denies his claim and says Roush wasn’t in the section of the 120,000-square-foot facility where the food is stored.

The charity’s attorneys and key officials also face a slander lawsuit, filed Aug. 10, by Roush over statements an attorney made about Roush to employees in June. Lawyers for the charity are asking for the lawsuit’s dismissal.
