Attorney for homeless man in GoFundMe dispute says remaining money is gone

Late Tuesday, a veteran-run home builder based in Dayton, Ohio, started an additional Go Fund Me page to help raise the money for veteran Johnny Bobbitt.

A lawyer for McClure and D'Amico says Bobbitt had stolen from the couple, even though they'd already given him $200,000.

McClure and D'Amico's attorney, Ernest Badway, told The Associated Press on Tuesday they have no comment.

On Aug. 30, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Paula Dow ordered the couple to return the remainder of the funds to Bobbitt's attorneys after Bobbitt requested a temporary restraining order that would bar the couple from spending any more of it.

However, the pair claimed in an interview on U.S. show Megyn Kelly Today they were giving him the money in installments due to a prior drug problem.

Xi said the financing would be in the form of government help as well as investment and funding by institutions and companies. The money would be focused on infrastructure to help speed African countries' development, not on "vanity projects", Xi said.

But the relationship has gone sour. "I repaid him for the gas, gave him a jacket, gloves, a hat, and warm socks, and I give him a few dollars every time I see him". It was featured in national newspapers, including The Post. They later appeared on shows like "Good Morning America" and were interviewed by the BBC.

Since its initial launch, the campaign raised over $400,000.

Bobbitt's lawsuit contended the couple committed fraud by taking money from the fundraising campaign for themselves. Fallon told The Inquirer that the next hearing could be as early as Wednesday.

"Johnny is homeless", said Ms Promislo, "which is not a safe environment for anyone". It's unclear how they will determine how the money was spent.

"We all have to start again trying to impress him and that's great". I'm over the moon that I'm able to be part of this win".

The couple agreed last week to have a forensic accountant file a complete report of how the money has been spent by September 10th. They also claimed to have given Bobbit $200,000, but his attorney says that he only received $75,000.

Bobbitt met with a financial adviser but never had access to the money or signed paperwork for a trust, according to the Inquirer.

A New Jersey judge had ordered the couple to turn the money over by last Friday, the Inquirer reported.

But Bobbitt said he saw troubling signs. He walked to a gas station and safely got McClure back on her way home to New Jersey. Bobbitt expressed concerns that D'Amico and McClure may have used the money to go on lavish vacations and buy a new BMW, while he said he was given a used SUV and a camper, both of which broke down. She also took a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon. But Bobbitt became homeless again after D'Amico told him in June that he had to leave the property. They didn't buy Bobbitt's dream auto, they bought him different used vehicle, also registered under McClure's name.

Bobbitt is preparing to enter a 28-day residential detoxification program for addiction treatment, the Inquirer reported.

She also ruled that the pair needed to provide a full accounting of the money's whereabouts - only to find out there was nothing left. Siphoning off any of the money for McClure's own benefit should be criminal, or failing that, universally viewed as immoral. He went through two unsuccessful stints in rehab that brought him no closer to being sober.

When I recently wrote a column expressing my feelings as to why homeless Marine veteran Johnny Bobbitt should just be given the money that was raised for him, I based that opinion on one key assumption.
