Attorney says Zimmerman had $200,000 from Web donations

George Zimmerman’s website seeking money for his legal defense may have been shut down, but apparently not before pulling in quite a haul for the high-profile Florida murder defendant.

The attorney for Zimmerman, charged in the February shooting of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, says in a TV interview Thursday that his client’s website has raised more than $200,000.

Mark O’Mara, speaking to CNN, said he learned about the money on Wednesday and will inform a judge at a Friday hearing.

    Good for Zimmerman. He’ll need it.

    How much have Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton gotten over this? I’ll bet more than Zimmerman.

    • I was having issues with Disqus this week. Now it seems OK.

      Disqus maybe? Did you get through? I have stuff disappear too now and then.

        I just tried again. I’m afraid to refresh the page for fear it won’t go through. Already posted short comments on other pages.

        Thanks, sdee.

    I am looking forward to donating to this fund! I hope TRS posts it when it is up and running.

    As this cuts to the heart of Chairman Hussein’s “under the radar” attack on the Second Amendment, I would hope that other groups including the NRA get behind him.
