More than 100 Screen Actors Guild members, including DAYS OF OUR LIVES star Peggy McCay, have asked U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis to investigate how SAG disburses money collected from foreign tax revenues.
A spokesman for the Department of Labor confirmed to Daily Variety that the department has received the letter, which was attached to another letter from SAG and WGA member Eric Hughes. Both documents include allegations of embezzlement, tax fraud and money laundering by SAG. "We are reviewing the letters," the Department of Labor spokesman said.
McCay told Daily Variety that she had distributed the letter among her DAYS castmates. McCay has received only miniscule foreign levies payments over the course of her lengthy career.
"If the allegations are true, it's really shocking," McCay said. "I think it definitely should be investigated."
