Hey guys, remember that guy, Brian Kolfage, who set up a GoFundMe to raise money to pay for Comrade Trump’s Tortilla Curtain?
Seems GoFundMe has shut the thing down!
“When the campaign was created, the campaign organizer specifically stated on the campaign page, ‘If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny,'” GoFundMe told CNN. “He also stated on the campaign page, ‘100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall. If for ANY reason we don’t reach our goal we will refund your donation.'”
“That did not happen. This means all donors will receive a refund,” GoFundMe told CNN.
However, the campaign page was still up early Saturday and accepting donations, and it’s unclear when it will be taken down. GoFundMe said it is up to the campaign organizer to determine when it will be shut down.
So what’s a grifter gotta do to steal a buck around here?
Kolfage said that he has determined that the federal government is not in a place to accept the money, so he intends on having a team to build a wall privately.
In place of the GoFundMe campaign, Kolfage set up a 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named “We Build the Wall, Inc.” and is asking donors to redirect their contributions to the organization.
You cannot keep a good grifter down! So now he’s found a way to keep those sweet, sweet Ameros and no doubt pay him a nominal salary to keep the grift going. More about 501(c)(4) is here.
