The founder of the far left leaning, liberal 'fact-checking' website Snopes David Mikkelson embezzled $98,000 in company funds; using it to spend on personal expenses which included sex toys, and hiring Tranny prostitutes. This is according to Barbara Mikkelson, David Mikkelson's x-wife, in legal documents filed during their divorce.

What passes at Snopes as a top “fact-checker” Kim LaCapria claimed on her personal blog that she has “posted to Snopes” blasted out of her mind after smoking marijuana. LaCapria describes herself as proudly and openly left-leaning liberal. She also claimed that Republicans fear women in authority. Snopes almost exclusively employs leftists as fact-checkers, many of whom have exhibited a clear distaste for Americans and more specifically Republican voters. There is not a single Snopes fact-checker who comes from a conservative background.
Liberal organizations who have been paying Snopes.com to debunk stories that cast them in a bad light, while validating damaging half-truths and rumors about their political opponents.
Having established their website as a reputable resource for validating and debunking stories in American popular culture since 1995, the Mikkelson couple soon found themselves in a position to influence public discourse by punishing or rewarding certain cultural and political biases.
Especially scandalous may be the website's possible collaboration with left-leaning national media organizations, which started with payments to Snopes.com to overlook or validate their inaccurate and biased reporting, and eventually evolved into a full-scale coordinated effort with left-leaning groups and public relation firms to construct a media narrative that gave legitimacy to certain opinions, political causes and public figures, while discrediting other opinions, causes, and public figures.
Several watchdog groups have already condemned Snopes.com as a corrupt organization with zero credibility and urged the public to disregard any political 'fact-checking' from this tainted source.
