The founder of Snopes has been accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from his far left "fact checking" organization and blowing it all on hookers.
Daily Caller reports:
The founder of mythbusting website Snopes, which was recently tapped by Facebook as one of four fact-check organizations patrolling the site for "fake news," embezzled $98,000 in company funds before spending it on "himself and the prostitutes he hired," according to legal documents filed by his ex-wife reviewed by the Daily Mail.
After divorcing from his first wife, Barbara Mikkelson, David Mikkelson married Elyssa Young, a former porn star and current escort who now works for Snopes as an administrator, according to the Daily Mail.
Let's recap The founder of Snopes is accused of stealing from the company to pay for prostitutes, one of which he married and is now on staff at the company tapped by Facebook to be an arbiter of #FakeNews.
Who the hell needs FakeNews when the real stuff is this crazy?
The former(?) hooker turned news gatekeeper has a twitter account where she's posted naked photos of herself, although she has't updated her feed in a very long time.
We clearly need someone to fact-check the fact-checkers.
. . . and the rest of it he just wasted.
Just Damn. Why look at that hot wife he has. He could tap that every night. Why go elsewhere.
Oh well. Laz! We now have a hottie available for you. Come and get her.
You don’t expect him to spend his OWN money on hookers, do you?
This is really getting into the prickly weeds, the dirty laundry and the soap operas of Snopes. Not something I’ve spent a lot of time speculating about.
They've been making his life increasingly difficult for years -- it's hard to tell what is news and what is satire.
But now it's just crazy.
I wonder if Snopes has “True” or “False” addressed this:
“Did the Snopes founder steal money from Snopes to pay for Hookers?”
I would LOVE to see that answer.
At $98K, those aren’t hookers, they’re escorts!
Nope, not gonna go there.
Has someone checked this on Snopes?
Here's his new wife's still-active "escort" site:
I have a feeling the cat is the brains of that operation
Sounds more like hookers, hotel rooms, alcohol, and cocaine. As a famous man once said, WINNING!
Very little information provided. Such as who is making this accusation for example. Is it just gateway pundit?
Never mind, I missed the Daily Caller reference.
Must have been paying too much attention to the pictures, LOL.
