More than $400K Raised for Homeless Man Disappears. Here’s Who’s Being Blamed.

Published

More than $400,000 was raised through a GoFundMe account for a homeless man, Johnny Bobbitt, however, all of that money is now gone. Who’s to blame for the vanishing cash? Fingers are now pointing toward a man and his girlfriend.

Last week, Superior Court Judge Paula T. Dow ordered Kate McClure and her boyfriend Mark D’Amico to surrender the cash raised through the campaign that was originally started to help Bobbitt get back on his feet.

An attorney representing the couple phoned Bobbitt’s lawyer and stated the money was all gone. This is just horrible, y’all.

“I’m not sure that I accept that it is all gone,” Fallon said in court Wednesday, the New York Post reported. “We would like to recover any money that is owed to Mr. Bobbitt.”

Bobbitt recently filed a lawsuit against McClure and D’Amico of New Jersey, claiming they mismanaged the funds and blew it on themselves. The couple had reportedly deposited the cash into their personal bank accounts.

On Aug. 30, Dow gave the couple 24 hours to deposit all remaining funds into an escrow account controlled by Bobbitt’s legal team, but they never turned over any money.

What really makes this situation so strange is that Bobbitt came to McClure’s aid when she was getting gas in a really rough neighborhood in Philly on Thanksgiving. Bobbitt, a homeless man mind you, gave this woman $20, the last of his money, to help her out. She later repaid him.

After raising the money, McClure and her boyfriend said they gave Bobbitt half the money, but held on to the other half because he was using drugs.

Bobbitt has accused the couple of going on several vacations and buying a BMW with the rest of the cash.

GoFundMe told KYW-TV that it is working with authorities to make sure Bobbitt receives the money raised for him.

“GoFundMe has given $20,000 to a bank account created by Johnny’s legal team to provide assistance during the investigation,” a GoFundMe spokesperson wrote in a statement to KYW. “It’s important to remember that our platform is backed by the GoFundMe Guarantee, which means that in the rare case that GoFundMe, law enforcement or a user finds campaigns are misused, donors and beneficiaries are protected.”

Bobbitt is now receiving detoxification treatment from a New Jersey facility, so there could be some credibility to the couple’s story about his spending money on drugs.

This is truly a sad situation for everyone involved and doesn’t do much for the spirit of charity in our country. Let’s hope it all gets worked out.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
