Homeless Vet Whose $400K GoFundMe Fund Vanished Finally Gets Good News

Published

Every once in a blue moon, actual, real, tangible justice is served in this world, and when that happens its cause for Americans everywhere to rejoice. It’s sad to think that’s how rare a thing it has become to see justice on public display, but alas, that’s the time we are living in.

Homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt was supposed to have received $400,000 from a GoFundMe page set up by a couple he assisted last Thanksgiving, however, that same couple who set up the page actually spent a large sum of the money.

Thankfully, GoFundMe has assured Bobbitt that he will indeed receive his money. Nice to see something work out for someone like this. Hopefully Bobbitt doesn’t blow his second chance here. It’s rare that you get one.

“GoFundMe and Cozen O’Connor, the Philadelphia law firm representing Bobbitt, announced Thursday evening in a joint statement that he will receive an amount equal to the balance of the funds he did not get from the online fund-raiser set up for him in November,” the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote.

“Johnny will be made whole and we’re committing that he’ll get the balance of the funds that he has not yet received or benefited from,” GoFundMe said in a statement. “GoFundMe’s goal has always been to ensure Johnny gets support he deserves.”

Bobbitt was a homeless drug addict when he gave his last $20 to Kate McClure, who was stranded on the side of the road in Philadelphia, in November. The story went viral and McClure and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, created a GoFundMe account for Bobbitt. Some 14,000 people donated.

There’s confusion about what happened after that.

​Lawyers for Bobbitt and the couple have disagreed on how much of the $400,000 that was raised has already been spent on Bobbitt’s behalf. Bobbitt’s legal team maintains that he was given a total of about $75,000. The couple’s lawyer, Ernest E. Badway, has said Bobbitt got $200,000 total. This week, Badway disclosed that none of the money remains.

Police raided the couple’s home on Thursday and photos from the scene revealed a black BMW being towed away. McClure and D’Amico have been ordered to make an appearance in court where they will be asked to give an explanation as to where the money went, but as of now, no charges have been filed against them.

As of now, Bobbitt’s money will be transferred to a bank account controlled by his lawyers. However, the cash cannot be used until a judge can determine who should manage it.

Given Bobbitt’s past struggles with drug addiction, this is probably a really good idea. Hopefully this man will be able to get his life in order and use this money to pull himself out of the hole for good, setting up a sustainable future for himself.

Bloomberg Buys Last-Minute Political Ads On Behalf Of Joe Biden In Texas And Ohio

Published

on

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who just so happened to run the country’s most expensive failed presidential campaign in history, is now apparently blowing through a wad of cash in a last-minute attempt to buy some political ads on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The ads have been purchased in key states that are known strongholds for Republicans, Ohio and Texas. Via Daily Wire: The last-minute advertising amounts to $15 million – a fraction of what Bloomberg is spending in Florida to support Biden – and represents internal polling suggesting President Donald Trump is vulnerable in the two states, The New York Times reported. “Howard Wolfson, one of Mr. Bloomberg’s closest aides, said the former mayor had recently asked his team to run a round of polls to see whether Mr. Trump had unexpected vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the campaign’s closing weeks. Up to this point, Mr. Bloomberg’s general-election activities have focused on Florida, where he has pledged to spend $100 million supporting Mr. Biden,” the outlet reported. “The Bloomberg team conducted polling in a number of states over the weekend and came away convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets — narrowly divided electoral prizes where the war for television airtime is not already cluttered with heavy advertising on either side. The team presented Mr. Bloomberg with the numbers on Monday morning and he gave the go-ahead.” “We believe that Florida will go down to the wire, and we were looking for additional opportunities to expand the map,” Wolfson told the outlet. “Texas and Ohio present the best opportunities to do that, in our view.” The big focus of the campaign ads being put out by Bloomberg will be the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ads running in Texas will…

Wallace was hit in both the shoulder and chest, then taken in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1320953991170125826 Following Wallace’s death, which was recorded and posted on social media, hundreds of people — some armed with bricks — protested in the 52nd Street commercial district, and the demonstration quickly turned violent. Police cars and dumpsters were set ablaze and NBC10 Philadelphia reported that at least 30 police officers were hurt.
