Lexington’s bogus beggar is now being a terrible human being in Louisville

Lexington’s friendliest beggar was exposed about a year ago for ripping off the generous people of Fayette County, and now he has been spotted panhandling in Louisville.

Gary Thompson, who is indirectly begging for a one-way ticket straight to hell, estimates that he pulls in close to $100,000 a year by pretending to be mentally handicapped and asking for money from total strangers. He has been arrested several times, but he clearly hasn’t learned his lesson.

WAVE 3 in Louisville recently sent a camera crew out to track him down but couldn’t get him to break character on camera. News, Weather

I’m sure he’s paying taxes on his 100 grand, too.

    My assumption is that if he’ll lie about being mentally handicapped then he is lying about how much money he makes. Some people can’t help themselves.

    1. Haha

      Nope everything he says is pure truth except for the handicapped thing.

    I hope he gets mugged by the bands of young thugs roaming downtown Louisville these days.

      He has a much greater chance of that happening now that UL is on break.

    Low calorie and fiber enriched are one of the most essential properties of this fruit that helps fiught
    against obesity. Add vetsin, salt to taste, lastly mix Renoo liver spread to thickened
    and for extra flavor. A single of the crucial components to constructing muscle and loxing exceses fat is to not stafve yourself.

    This guy was in Cincinnati in early April. I remembered the KSR blog last year and told everyone he was a fake. He didn’t stay around very long in Cincinnati.

    “indirectly begging for a one-way ticket straight to hell” …. that made me laugh.

  14. Al Sharpton

    Idiots give money to street beggars. It’s not generosity, it is voluntary fleecing.

    How about you talk about the current panhandler in the hamburg area! Her story consists of, her vehicle is at the walmart tire center, she is short on funds. Also throws in that her family is in the car waiting for her… So sad ppl have to do these things to generous people, some tell the truth but this lady is a thief.

  16. somerset bill

    i propose sending bti out to shadow the guy all day, every day and let every passerby who might give him money know that the guy is faking. he can have video proof ready to show. and then ask the person who has just been saved from being scammed if they would like to donate some of that money to a real charity.

    1. Bravo!!
