Fake panhandler says he suckers people for $100K in donations a year

Gary Thompson just made life harder for panhandlers. The Lexington, Ky., man is an alleged scammer, playing to the heartstrings of would-be do-gooders who canít resist his act ó that of a wheelchair-bound man with a mental disability. How good is he? He boasts he can make up to $100,000 a year. Thompson was "busted" by a TV station Monday shortly after police warned the public about his alleged scam. During a surreal nearly-nine-minute interview, Thompson fessed up, that aside from some difficulty walking due to a past motorcycle accident, he's physically healthy and mentally sharp; he has a college degree in speech pathology. Thompson admitted "he's really good" at gaming people and bragged about his con artist ways, declaring himself "the best in Lex."
