George Floyd Attorney Sued After His Client Receives ZERO Dollars from $1 MILLION+ GoFundMe


The dust has pretty much settled following the national riots that took place in the summer of 2020.

Activists insist they were in response to the death of a lifetime criminal, George Floyd, while in Minneapolis, MN police custody.

Even though George Floyd had a ‘violent criminal history, he is being hailed as a civil rights “saint” leading to tens of millions of dollars in donations going to groups like the Marxist far-left BLM movement.

What is shocking to many is the amount of fraud and exploitation perpetrated by some involved with the Floyd and subsequent cases.

  1. Black Lives Matter activists accuse executive of stealing $10 million in donor funds.
  2. Black Lives Matter Secretly Bought a $6 Million House.
  3. Founder Used BLM Funds To Pay Her Brothers, Her Childs’s Father Nearly $2M For ‘Professional Services’.
  4. Three leaders of the social justice movement — Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Melina Abdullah — recorded a video last June outside the “secretly bought” home while marking the first anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, New York magazine reported.
  5. Cullors at the time said she was weeks removed from being in “survival mode” after The Post’s exclusive reporting in April revealed her purchase of four high-end US homes for $3.2 million.

Now Ben Crump, the high-profile attorney who has represented the families of George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, and Breonna Taylor is being sued.

The mother of Daunte Wright Senior’s son has sued Wright Senior’s parents and her lawyer, claiming she failed to receive “one single penny” from a GoFundMe fundraiser created for the benefit of Wright Senior’s son.

Wright Senior was killed on April 11, 2021, by Brooklyn Center Police officer Kim Potter, who was ultimately found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to serve two years in prison. The 20-year-old’s death, which occurred roughly 10 miles from the location where George Floyd died, reignited a host of Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests.

A civil lawsuit was filed Monday on behalf of Chyna Whitaker, the mother of Daunte Wright Senior’s son, who says her former attorney Ben Crump “promised and assured her up-front that any GoFundMe monies raised through The Daunte Wright Sr. Memorial Fund would be split 50/50 between Daunte Jr. and the Wright family.”

Whitaker insists that Crump had promised that she and her son would be taken care of, though his promises never materialized.

Whitaker’s attorneys, however, say the single mother hasn’t received any financial assistance to help raise her son and that her efforts to resolve the matter amicably have gone unanswered.

“We would have preferred to settle this with a letter and a phone call but we’ve tried a number of times and we were unsuccessful. Now we’re left with this last resort,” said one of Whitaker’s attorneys, Bill Skolnick.

When it was first launched, the GoFundMe page promised to donate a portion of the proceeds towards “providing support to Daunte’s infant son, Daunte Wright, Jr.”

Eventually, as the lawsuit explains, any mention of the child was erased from the page.

A representative for the crowdfunding platform said the money was given to Wright Senior’s father, Arbuey Wright. The lawsuit also notes that if Crump hadn’t promised Whitaker that she would receive a portion of the GoFundMe funds, she would have set up her own account.

Whitaker’s lawsuit claims Crump and the Wright family used her son’s image and existence to raise over $1 million before they “all turned their backs” on Whitaker and her son.

The lawsuit seeks a judgment against Wright Senior’s parents and Crump, which will be determined at a trial but estimated to be over $500,000.

When reached for comment, a spokesperson from Crump’s law firm released the following statement:

“This is strictly a family dispute between the mother of Daunte Wright’s child and Daunte’s parents, who set up the GoFundMe account in question. Ben Crump Law never handled or controlled the money from this GoFundMe account, which was under the sole direction of Daunte’s parents. Ben Crump Law did not benefit from any of the funds raised, and we did not accept any fee in this case. Our hearts are always with the family, and we pray that they can find resolution.”

In reality, Floyd was a criminal.

  • George Floyd moved to Minneapolis in 2014 after being released from prison in Houston, Texas following an arrest for aggravated robbery
  • The 46-year-old was previously released from prison stemming from a 2007 robbery
  • He plead guilty to entering a woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach, and searching the home for drugs and money, according to court records
  • Floyd was sentenced to 10 months in jail for having less than one gram of cocaine in a December 2005 arrest
  • He had previously been sentenced to eight months for the same offense, stemming from an October 2002 arrest
  • Floyd was arrested in 2002 for criminal trespassing and served 30 days in jail
  • He had another stint for a theft in August 1998
