At the present time, with the audit incomplete, of course it is not 
possible to say for sure.  But I give you my personal assurance that if 
there was any stolen money, I will personally donate enough money from 
my own pocket to account for it down to the penny.

I feel comfortable making that promise, because I do not think there was 
any material harm.  But I want people to feel comfortable about that now.
