Skip to comments.Snopes Co-Founder Accused Of Embezzling Company Money, Spending It On Prostitutes
Posted on 12/22/2016 1:36:47 AM PST by lowbridge
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.
The Daily Mail also revealed that top Snopes fact-checker Kim LaCapria claimed on her personal blog that she has posted to Snopes after smoking marijuana. As TheDC previously revealed, LaCapria describes herself as openly left-leaning and once claimed that Republicans fear female agency.
As originally reported by TheDC, Snopes almost exclusively employs leftists as fact-checkers, many of whom have exhibited a clear distaste for Republican voters. TheDC could not identify a single Snopes fact-checker who comes from a conservative background.
The mythbusting site has butchered the truth on more than one occasion.

Really? This is Zuckerburger’s go-to foundation of Truf? LOL.
What difference does it matter at this particular time, anyhow?
Zuckerschmuck is just going through the motions of objectivity. The intention is to diminish certain viewpoints and news stories.
Did you guys fact-check this story? Maybe he only paid $36,000 for the hooker?
The turd should just build his walls, create a free fire zone outside his walls and pretend that he is a moral center.
Did you guys fact-check this story?
= = = = = = = = = =
Of course I did.
After about 10000 words the consensus is not true.
If I paid attention to it before, it may matter, but....
It definitely is hard to ‘convince’ some folks about this site though.
Here are some facts:
Sounds like a real trustworthy person. /s
Death of a thousand cuts - if every time he puts up a new ‘truth verification’ entity, the entity is publicly proven to be a source of lies, eventually even liberals will turn on him.
Apparently his ex-wife did not believe his Snopesplanation.
“Who you gonna believe? Mr. Snopes or your lyin’ eyes?”
And this is who Zuckerburg thinks can spot fake news. I think he meant fake boobs....
I’d have to see the evidence before I pronounce him guilty...
I checked snopes. This is a fake news stor..... nevermind
FreeRepublic FACTCHECKER Website wins again.
More winnin ...
Oh noes! How can I believe anything now!!! /s
Typing “Mikkelson embezzelment” into Snopes returnes no documents. Wonder why?
He blew it all on hookers and booze,but not before hiring a likely hooker as an “administrative assistant”. How about them facts?
Google images has some NSFW pictures. But when you add the guy's name you get something a bit different. Maybe a different person?
With any luck, someday Snopes will be reduced to nothing more than a cute little website that investigates things like finding out whether Mommy really did kiss Santa Claus.
