The Girl Scouts are being SUED by one of their own! And for $30 million! Cosmopolitan reports that Kayla Cody was banned from her troop in Brooklyn, New York, “after her mom questioned the use of the money raised from selling Girl Scout cookies.”
Her mother, Jacquelyne Cody, says that Kayla sold around 80 boxes of cookies, and that the troop had voted to have a party with their money from cookie sales. According to Jacquelyne, the troop leader, Maggie Rene, used the money for a camping trip. They also say that Rene kicked Kayla out because she “asked too many questions about money.” The state Division of Human Rights denied their complaints, so now the Supreme Court will decide.
Kayla says “I thought Girl Scouts is supposed to empower girls, not make us feel bad.” Meanwhile the Girl Scouts assure that the situation were “extensively investigated” and “the Girl Scouts would love to have Kayla back, and there are many troops she has been offered to join.” Whose side are you on here?
