$50,000 of the money "for living expenses -- rent or whatever," [View all]



It's been 2 months since Zimmerman shot & killed Trayvon Martin.

We've found out after bail was set that Zimmerman has raised over $200k to help for his defense. Then I read this in the LA Times article:

http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-zimmerman-reveals-support-fund-2012-0427,0,1035645.story

O'Mara said that Zimmerman had already used roughly $50,000 of the money "for living expenses -- rent or whatever," and that the remaining $150,000 was now in a separate trust account under O'Mara's control.



Look I realize the guy doesn't have a job right now because of what is happening; however $50k for living expenses over a 2 month period? Really? I own a house and pay all my bills and yet I barely need a tenth of that to survive for 2 months.

I think someone needs to find out what Zimmeman did with $50k of that money if it was "for living expenses -- rent or whatever" because that seems like Zimmerman found a way to make money off this tragedy and used the money to have fun with it.
