Alex Jones, who a court ordered to pay Sandy Hook families after the conspiracy theorist fraudster claimed the tragic school shooting that killed 20 first graders and six educators in Newtown, Connecticut never happened, has been on a spending spree lately.
Records show the Infowars talk show host spent $93,000 in personal expenses in July, including $7,900 on housekeeping and $15,000 to his wife.
Meanwhile, the families haven’t received a dime from the court-ordered settlement. Sandy Hook families won nearly $1.5 billion in judgments against him last year in lawsuits over repeated promotion of a false theory that the school shooting that killed 20 first graders and six educators in Newtown, Connecticut, never happened.
“It is disturbing that Alex Jones continues to spend money on excessive household expenditures and his extravagant lifestyle when that money rightfully belongs to the families he spent years tormenting,” said Christopher Mattei, a Connecticut lawyer for the families. “The families are increasingly concerned and will continue to contest these matters in court.”
In an attempt to avoid payment, Jones declared bankruptcy, which revealed his personal assets: he owns a home worth $2.6 million, a $2.2 million ranch, a $1.8 million lake house, a $500,000 rental property, and four vehicles and two boats worth more than $330,000 in total. Jones had nearly $800,000 in his bank accounts on July 31, court documents show.
And yet the Sandy Hook families still wait.
