“Fake” Mom Rakes In $200K After CNN Runs Counterfeit News


A woman who raked in almost $200,000 in donations after an appearance on CNN falsely claimed she was the mother of three young children who faced homelessness.

Dasha Kelly of Las Vegas was featured in an Aug. 2 CNN news report about the end of the federal eviction moratorium, CNN reported. She had started a GoFundMe page to raise the $2,000 she owed in back rent and said on the page that she had three young daughters.

Kelly’s GoFundMe campaign quickly raised nearly $200,000 after her appearance on CNN with Democratic Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri and the girls who Kelly claimed were her daughters.

The eviction moratorium was later extended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
