KILN — The Secretary of State’s Office has confirmed that Camp Coastal operators, Mike Sweeney and Sandy Molenhouse have filed for bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District of Louisiana. The bankruptcy petition automatically postpones the administrative hearing scheduled for June 10 by the Secretary of State’s Office.
“We are obviously very disappointed by this development in the Camp Coastal case,” said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “We were hoping to come to a quick resolution on this matter for Gulf Coast residents. We will be closely monitoring the progress of the bankruptcy case in Louisiana and plan on rescheduling the hearing as soon as the bankruptcy judge removes the stay on the proceedings.”
An examination into Camp Coastal revealed the organization operated as a charity without registering with the Secretary of State’s Office, and investigators found what they believe are records of donated funds expended for personal use.
