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

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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
