SCRATCH A TRUMPBOT?:

Border Militia Spokesman Charged for Allegedly Using Child's Cancer Diagnosis to Make Money (Alberto Luperon, June 21st, 2019, Law & Crime)

The spokesman for an infamous border militia now faces a fraud charge for allegedly using a child's cancer diagnosis to make money. Court records in Logan County, Oklahoma show that Jim Benvie, 43, faces a misdemeanor count of attempting to obtain money by false pretenses, on top an existing felony charge of possession of a stolen vehicle.

Benvie's alleged activity was previously reported by The Daily Beast and CBS 4 Local back in May, but there were no fraud charges at the time. He was allegedly collecting money, ostensibly on behalf of 11-year-old Ryan Cremeens, a child suffering from cancer. Instead, he was taking to cash for himself, authorities said.
