I have written about Leonard McQuown in the past regarding his Operation Walk America, Operation Walk, among his other VERY questionable charities he has devised over the past few years. In my short time of following this character, he has proven time and time again that his mission is not to help homeless veterans but to fill his pockets by using the plight of homeless veterans as a marketing platform.
Today, McQuown decided that it was time to run around his Florida neighborhood have people pay him for it, and he had the audacity to do so in honor of 9/11. This makes his fraud even more deprave if that’s even possible at this point. To use our homeless American servicemen and women as a way to prey on giving people is despicable.
