FORT WORTH - The United States Senate Finance Committee released an audit Thursday of Kenneth Copeland Ministries and five other prominent televangelists which were not favorable.

Along with Kenneth Copeland Ministries, others were investigated, including Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, Randy and Paula White, Joyce Meyer and Bishop Eddie Long. None of the ministries were found to have violated federal tax rules.

However, only Meyer and Hinn reportedly co-operated with the three year investigation led by Sen. Charles Grassley, (R) Iowa.

Grassley said Copeland and his wife Gloria were "not responsive" to the committee's request for information.

Auditors were able to determine that in 1995, 15 Copeland family members were on the church payroll, earning salaries totaling $1.5 million.

The Copelands' salaries then totaled more than $600,000.
