It's alarming how Vassar uses his grant-making powers to build alliances in the EA community. He initiated a grant to Peter Eckersley's organization AOI after Peter's death. Peter was strongly against Vassar. Vassar seemed pleased that Peter's successor Deger Turan doesn't have the same moral compass.

Michael Vassar is still active in the EA community as a grant giver at SFF.  He recently initiated a grant to the new president of AOI after the death of the founder Peter Eckersley, which casts a bad mark on his successor. 

Peter Eckersley had a strong moral compass and stayed far away from Vassar. The new president, Deger Turan, was either clueless or careless when he sold out Peter's legacy.
