Ken Bone, the undecided voter who became an overnight internet sensation during the second Presidential debate when he asked the candidates a thoughtful energy policy question, is more than just a mustache and a nonpartisan red sweater. Beneath the self proclaimed "cuddly internet political faceman" lies an insurance fraudster according to CNN Money, The Daily Beast, New York Magazine, Mercury News and The New York Times.
Bone committed fraud by forging documents to make it appear as though his car insurance was active at a time when his policy had been frozen due to non-payment. He did such a good job with MS Paint, an old card and a scanner that the "fake cards and documentation fooled 3 bosses and a cop" Bone said.
Find the insurance fraud angle compelling? It's unlikely there will be an insurance fraud investigation since no one lost money on it. Bone's foray into forgery was not a ambitious one. Bone didn't fake an injury or stage an accident. Bone instead forged the documents to secure a pizza delivery gig because car insurance was a job requirement.
Bone plans to donate a portion of the proceeds of his t-shirt sale --yes, despite reluctance to decide which presidential candidate to support, he managed to design and market over 5K limited edition Shepard Fairey portrait style "Bone" t-shirts in less that a week-- to the St. Patrick Center, to fight homelessness in St. Louis. He doesn't specify what portion of those proceeds will be donated but if, after all this, you're still a fan and want to give him the benefit of the doubt, the iconic undecided voter's t-shirt are available in sizes ranging from XS to 3XL. Cost is $19.99
