After raising money for Johnny Bobbit, a homeless man, Kate McClure and her boyfriend Mark D'Amico appeared on Megyn Kelly TODAY, claiming they didn’t want to turn over the funds for fear of Bobbit wasting it. They also claimed they did not spend the $400,000 they raised for him on themselves. However, it was just revealed in court that all of the money is gone.

Do you think the couple stole the money? What do you think should be done to the couple? Do you think this will affect people who wishes to do good deeds in the future?

I think the husband was a gambling addict. Hopefully, she gets fired from her state job under a moral turpitude clause. She can live under a bridge for awhile to see what it's really like.

Please send them to jail because they defraud them system of GoFundMe and kindness of people. People will always think twice now about donating to any cause.

My conspiracy: They went out that night hunting for a homeless person to enact this scam on. If it seems to far fetched, just remember how far con artists think in advance, and how orchestrated and involved their cons are. They knew before they met Bobbit that night what they were going to do, they just didn't count on a down and out transient to have a voice, and the support of so many.

I think she's a secretary for the state making $43000/year and he's a"carpenter" who doesn't really work and yet she can afford a $2000 bag (I just checked out LV website) AND a BMW that is crazy expensive to maintain ($500 for routine maintenance)??? That's some serious balls.\

100% thieves!!!! Lock them up. How dare they take advantage of anyone like that. They need a long look in the mirror and ask themselves"what kind of person am i".

I don't believe that good is in their character, then again I have seen too much of what people are capable of to believe that good is still prevalent in the majority of people. But I have become very cynical over the years and hope that I am wrong.

Six months imprisonment will not be a bad idea for this fraudulent couple so that others can learn.

Have you been to a second hand or thrift store lately? There are plenty of fancy labeled stuff that people bought when they had money but had to get rid of when cash flow dries up.

It's very clear the younger generation has no clue about real money. Or how much it costs to live in the real world.

That couple makes less a year than my husband and I. We've never had the money to go on vacation and we can only afford a 2006 dully truck to haul our cattle. I don't even have a car. After mortgage and monthly bills...there's nothing left. These 2 scammed this man and used his money. They should spend time in jail. Addict or not..it is HIS money. They knew he was an addict. They made the decision to do this"go fund me" knowing that. If he squandered it on drugs..that was on him. None of their business.

I’d guess stealing over $400,000 makes that possible. Homeless guy with only $20 showed he’s got more value and integrity and ethics then both of them put together.
