93. DUer\activist Andy Stephenson was dying of cancer... and had no money to pay. DU and other outlets
Wed Mar 19, 2014, 11:28 AM
Mar 2014

raised a LOT of money (50k, maybe? it was long ago) to help pay for his cancer treatments.

Freepers caught wind, and declaring it a scam (even so far as calling Andy "Scamdy&quot , they contacted paypal or whatever place the money was raised on, crying fraud, and got the funds frozen for some time.

This in effect delayed the release of the money long enough it could very well be said the Freeper scum had a hand in his death.
