    I recall statements from one of the Newtown officials who said that "many" fake donation sites showed up within hours of the tragedy.

    I haven't noticed any followup that mentioned a quantity, but I did notice that more than one person, even the parents of one victim, were warning others about scammers.

    That's just four steps beyond evil, imo.

    I remember one reporter saying that several scammers were being investigated. That's all good.

    So maybe we'll see more arrests. I certainly hope so.

    It's gotta be easier to just publish your real name and ask people to donate just because. You wouldn't even have to beg for money to get out of jail.
