This just in...: Wyclef resigns from Haitian charity, files Presidential paperwork
Yeah, he's really going to go through with it. Rapper Wyclef Jean arrived in Port-au-Prince Thursday afternoon and submitted paperwork declaring his candidacy for president of Haiti. If accepted, he'll be in the race. Jean also announced that he is stepping down as chairman of the Yéle Haiti foundation -- the aid group he founded five years ago, which recently caught flak for overspending on its own expenses. "It's a moment in time and in history," Jean told the Associated Press as he went to hand in his candidacy papers, 10 minutes before the office closed. "It's very emotional."
