What is it about George Zimmerman’s family that they just can’t tell the truth?
Yesterday, George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, was arrested and released on $1000 bail after she committed perjury during a June 1 bond hearing where she told prosecutors and a judge that she had no knowledge of how much donation money was collected from her husband’s support website.
Zimmerman had collected close to $135,000 in donations to his website and not only did she lie about the money, but prosecutors found that she transferred $74,000 out of George's account four days before telling a courtroom she had no knowledge of any money.
They also found that Zimmerman told his wife to pay off their American Express bill and their Sam's Club card while in jail and he apparently, while in jail, talked to a bank manager in Seminole County about transferring his account to his wife.
Prosecutors contend that the Zimmermans also spoke about the money "in code" during recorded jailhouse phone calls. Shellie will be arraigned on July 31 to face her perjury charges.
The lies don’t stop at Mrs. Zimmerman, when the news broke of his son’s arrest, George Zimmerman’s father, Robert, conducted an interview and told a few half-truths in an attempt to come to his son’s aide.
As Trayvon Martin's family lawyer Benjamin Crump said when Zimmerman’s bond was revoked:
"This is such an important ruling today because once again George Zimmerman's credibility is the issue...he should remain in custody until there is a trial...Judge Lester’s ruling in this matter is so important because it causes everyone to focus on Zimmerman’s credibility."
Between George Zimmerman, his father and his wife, the liars den is full of schemers and their credibilty is gone forever. When will people realize lying gets you no where and the truth will always come to light?
Take a look at what else the Zimmerman family has lied about.
