Aurora theater shooting: Victims' families say they have no voice about donations

Update below: Eleven families who lost loved ones in the Aurora theater shooting came together for a news conference today, during which they cast blame on an organization called the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance and Governor John Hickenlooper.

They say they have not had any voice in the disbursement of more than $5 million collected in donations from the public and corporations.
