Following the conclusion of any related legal proceedings, any funds that remain in the Legal Defense Fund will be donated to charitable organizations of the McCabes’ choosing."

    So basically, this is a legal defense fund in case he's charged with something. which most likely he is not. so people much poorer than him gave him a bucket of money he gets to donate.

    I bet most people have no idea what they donated to.
    He is absolutely going to have legal expenses and they may be more or less than he raises but either way on the same funding page they do explain that any money not used for the specific outlined legal expenses will be donated to other good causes. The page is pretty clear about the funding so I don't see an issue.

    Nice touch by McCabe declaring any leftover funds would go to charities.



    Well he had to, he really doesn't have a choice. what I would have done was to shut it down as soon as I learned about it and donated what was collected to charity If gofundme doesnt refunds all the money.

    outside of pension, what legal expenses do you see this 1%er needing that these poorer people will pay for? ?

    It's not just the Federal government. Denying a person their retirement pension is (appropriately) a huge thing. It should only apply under extreme circumstances. The McCabe doesn't even come close to such criteria.

    The claim that McCabe is worth $11,000,000 is ridiculous.

    Multiple sites estimate him at 11 million, liberal fatcheck.org doesn't prove anything.


    Did you read the factcheck.org. all it does is speculate how it can be other than 11 million offers no actual evidence, and at best says he's worth half that.


    Still a hell of a lot more than his donors

    Some of those sites also detail how they came to that number...

    So many times people go into government worth 5-10 million and leave a few years later worth 150 million... Or some other inexplicably explosive growth to their personal wealth.
