Lawyer claims $400K in GoFundMe account for homeless man is missing

Mark D'Amico and Kate Mc Clure speak with Megyn Kelly during a recent appearance on Megyn Kelly Today. The couple set up a GoFundMe page for homeless man Johnny Bobbitt but his lawyer says the money is gone and little of it went to Bobbitt

In August, a judge ordered the couple to hand over the remaining funds from the campaign.

An attorney representing a homeless man who became the center of a viral fundraising campaign says all of the money a South Jersey couple collected for him is now gone.

Dow ordered the couple's attorney, Ernest Badway, to tell his clients, who were not in court, that they must appear before her September 14 after giving sworn depositions on the matter next Monday morning at Badway's law office.

Ms McClure and her boyfriend Mark D'Amico started a GoFundMe campaign in return, promising that Mr Bobbitt would have a home.

According to CBS Philadelphia, officials said the couple had mixed the GoFundMe money with their own. One went so far as to say that McClure is the one who raised the money so how much of it she gives to Bobbitt is up to her.

One of the first votes he will cast when he is sworn in as senator will be on the confirmation of Kavanaugh to the high court. In choosing Kyl, Ducey tapped a figure who is well-liked by both Trump's political team and McCain's family and allies.

D'Amico has said Bobbitt spent $25,000 in less than two weeks in December on drugs, in addition to paying overdue legal bills and sending money to his family.

McClure, a receptionist, and D'Amico, a carpenter, used the GoFundMe money on lavish vacations and a new BMW, which they couldn't otherwise afford, according to Bobbitt's lawyers.

Last week, it was reported there was still $150,000 left in donations, and a New Jersey judge in the case had ordered the couple to transfer the remaining funds into an escrow account and hire an accountant to review financial records.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the couple, Katie McClure and Mark D'Amico, first crossed paths with Bobbitt in late 2017, after he gave his last $20 to McClure for gas when she was stranded at night on the side of I-95 in Philadelphia.

GoFundMe said it is working with law enforcement to ensure that Bobbitt receives all of the almost $400,000 raised on his behalf, though his attorney says he's learned there may be nothing left after earlier disbursements. They didn't buy Bobbitt a house, they bought him a trailer, registered it under McClure's name and parked it on her family's land. The pair made an appearance on "Good Morning America" and were interviewed by BBC News - a feel-good story at the start of the holiday season last fall. Now, the man's attorney says all the money is gone and his client received only a fraction of the donations.

I'm looking forward to playing and helping to get the club to the highest level possible. I'm hoping to repay that and give him what he wants from me".

"You should advise your clients that they are directed by the court to appear", Judge Dow told the couple's attorney, Badway. Bobbitt has also said he fears D'Amico has a gambling problem, something that D'Amico has denied. Some of the money GoFundMe donors gave to him ended up in the pockets of drug dealers, Bobbitt told the Inquirer.

"I'll be completely surprised if they spent $200,000 on Johnny Bobbitt", said Chris Fallon, the attorney for the homeless man.

"We saw the pattern that was developing. that he was going to do something foolish, and end up right back where he was", D'Amico told Kelly. They continue to disappear. McClure and D'Amico also bought Bobbitt a truck, which they drove.

Bobby Whithorne, a spokesperson with GoFundMe, said the company is working with Bobbitt's legal team to ensure he gets support - in the form of $20,000 to a bank account - while the remaining money is recovered. "I think that's a ludicrous request", Judge Dow said about Badway's request to put this on hold until Bobbitt is done with his month-long treatment program.

The homeless veteran is reportedly back on the streets, where he and his brother are panhandling for money to buy food and drugs.
