Fake Charity Scammer ‘Bobby Thompson’ And Friends

Views

In October 2010, a man known as “Bobby Thompson” was indicted for operating a scam veterans’ charity that bilked contributors out of millions. Thompson, whose true identity and whereabouts are unknown, allegedly pocketed 90 percent of the proceeds from his U.S. Navy Veterans Association. He also gave thousands to conservative political candidates, including Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). (Both have given away the donations.)

The Ohio AG released several pictures of Thompson, many of them from meet-and-greets where he posed with the GOP elite. Here, with former President George W. Bush.
