Fallout From Oxfam's Haiti Sexual Abuse Scandal Keeps Growing
The charity has lost a number of celebrity ambassadors and an executive in the wake of the scandal.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

British charity Oxfam has apologized to Haiti following allegations it covered up sexual misconduct by aid workers.

The charity's deputy chief executive resigned and a number of celebrity ambassadors have left the organization in the wake of the scandal.

And the scandal seems to have caused a crisis of confidence between the international aid community and politicians in the U.K.

The United Kingdom's Liberal Democrat party has called for a full inquiry into illegal sexual behavior "across the wider aid sector."
