Just over a month ago, Orlando reporter Mike DeForrest ran a series of reports for WKMG 6 to “out” local registrants who were working in the community.
The registrants were not committing crimes or doing anything illegal, they were simply working to support their families.
After publicly outing the registrants and shaming their employers, the registrants lost their jobs.
One of the registrants named in the story was Lake County’s Timothy Poole.
FAC wrote about the series in this post and concluded by saying, “The real shame should not be on the head of the registrants who were working hard, doing a good job and trying to live a law abiding life to support their families. The shame should not be on the head of the business owners, who were willing to give a human being a second chance… good for them! The shame should be on vigilante reporter Mike DeForrest and Click Orlando for creating hysteria where it didn’t exist and leaving at least two families without an income tonight.”
Anyhow, in an incredible twist of fate (call it Karma, if you will), Timothy Poole just won three million dollars!!!
That’s right… here’s the same station’s report from today announcing that Timothy Poole had won the lottery!
We sincerely hope that Mr. Poole will take some of his winnings and invest it in challenging some of the draconian laws being passed.
