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.

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations. Here’s some random noise from anti-Trump, anti-free speech, anti-American Twitter… https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1352735841366335488 https://twitter.com/cabot_phillips/status/1352734530524729344 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352723083300401152 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1352752362604146689 https://twitter.com/WSJ/status/1349493316468023303

AOC: I Didn’t Attend Inauguration Because I Didn’t ‘Feel Safe’ Around Republicans

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
