Months ago we brought you the news of Bobby Thompson and his charity the U.S. Navy Veterans Association (USNVA). Thompson gave a $55,000 contribution to the campaign of now-Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli after Cuccinelli hit him up for a big contribution. But, as it turned out, Thompson’s work was being probed in several states and there was a lot of evidence he and his whole operation were complete frauds. (Michele Bachmann also got some of his money. Until a week ago Cuccinelli had said he wouldn’t give back the money until there was formal proof Thompson was a fraud.)
And then some, it turns out.
Now the Ohio AG has issued a nation-wide arrest warrant for “Bobby Thompson.” And we have to use quotes because apparently his name isn’t even Bobby Thompson. “Bobby Thompson” the scammer apparently stole the identity and Social Security number of a real Bobby Thompson. So they don’t even know the guy’s name. In any case, if you see him, let Ken Cuccinelli know. And the AG in Ohio too.
