His ex is just a loyal person. She has forgiven Dan and moved on with her life. how can u blame her for that? Hating Dan would only drag her down. She has gone through a lot worse in life than having a husband lie to her. Her street smarts are better than most. Leave her out of all this cramp.

So it looks as though many of you knew Dan pretty well, I thought I did, too. If anyone knows the answers to the following questions, I'd be appreciate knowing the REAL answers: Was Dan ever married? What was her name? Did he remarry her after they had been divorced? Did he remarry her because she was pregnant? Did she ever have a baby? A boy? Did he work for ESPN in Montreal? Does he have a good friend named Chuckie? Is his mother really dead? Did he inherit anything from her? Inquiring minds want to know...

liz dee had no idea what dan was into. she is a good,hard working,smart,loving and caring person.
any person that dan fooled has a complete right
to be upset and angry. that includes liz, his dad, his aunts and uncles, his best friends, and the people that some how gave him money without any legal documents. only dan is responsible for his actions, nobody else. how many 33 year old men
have been baild out by their aunts. i would guess
maybee none!!! hopefully dan does his time, gets
out and is able to start paying the true victims back. that would be the best thing for all involved. life is good, he is paying for his horrble deeds, as he deserves to be. he did this alone and fooled every body. there are no winners, just one big looser and that is dan himself. he has to live with this forever. his mother did die 15 years ago of breast cancer, he never ever worked fo espn, he did have a great wife who left him AND HE HAS NO CHILDREN. he also has one of the best fathers a person could have who has tried his best to make this sad situation as right as possible. god bless all the people that have been hurt by this entire mess. any body that gave jeff leddy any money should contact the westchester d.,a's office, because that is now an issue of who kept the $. i was a friend of dan's.
his greed got the better of him, but greed lured people into this redicules crazy 7 year scheme.
instead of blaming his family 8 years later you should have tried to contact them before you put any $ up. again ther are no winners only losers. enjoy life and be healty. god bless.
p.s his mother would be heart broken as the rest of his family on both sides are.
loyal ones still around

I love that it makes people wild that Dan still has people in his corner. As humans, we make mistakes in our lives. We ask God for forgiveness. Then we try to make amends. Dan is serving his sentence like a man and not crying about it. The "victims" of his crime need to move on with their lives. As my very good friend just said,'what's done is done'.

Also, there is no need to talk sh*t about his family. They are good people. They have been hurt too.

PS - No matter what negative things you nasty people say, those of us that love Dan ...will always be loyal to him.

Good to stay loyal, it just makes you look even more stupid then you did when you found out he was lying. I cant wait to see how his loyal family acts when proof of Dan knocking them in a very vulgar manner is leaked out. I wonder if they will say there sorries or just pretend they are ok with it.

Who ever thinks Dan is in jail is an idiot. He works for me at Vision Stat. And I gave him a cell phone and yankee tickets.

I think the Culhane family should make good on what there son/realitive did. If we all were to get all our money back then you would not have to see or hear from us again. We are not going to let this go. You have the money so make good on it. The Culhane name is far from being dragged through the mud. In a leagal way so we dont end up in the cell next to him. But its perfectly legal to let all of the close neighbors and co workers of the family what dan has done. Have a wonderfull day.
Why would you assume

Don't you think it's pretty presumptious to assume that his family has the money to pay everyone back? I'm sure if they could they would try and make this better. It's also doubtful that they knew the truth about what was going on and did nothing to stop it. Threatening them isn't going to help you get your money and neither is dragging their name through the mud. Is there no one in your family who has made mistakes? Just because there is one bad apple doesn't mean the entire family is to blame.

Now that little bro is in jail is big brother hitting the white bag just as hard as the upstairs dayz? Dont matter he will be dead soon enough he most likely owes a bunch of people money like his brother. What a good job the culhane family did rasing two outstanding citizens like Dan and Richie. They should both kill themselves and do us all a favor. Culhane = lowlifes.

rich culhane is doing great---he has a great government job, has become an avid aa counsler
and has put his life on the right track, and is now helping others do the same. the upstairs was a long time ago---things change. sounds like maybe you were hitting the little white bag yourself---you seem to know all about it!!!!
hope your life is in order and that you and your family and friends are health annd happy. i know the culhanes are. dan did a bad thing and is paying for it, as he should. wishing people dead is really a horrible thing to do---may god show you the way---get on with your life and enjoy it.
he showed rich the way---so there has to be help for you. may you always stay healthy and happy,
the people you wish ill may one day be able to help you. i got richard into aa and it is a great feeling to see sombody turn their life around and become a great person. it gives you such faith. i pray you find your way because after reading your statement it is so clear you are lost. please get the help you need.
your life will be better for it.

i have been lucky to meet a lot of richards family and they are the furthest thing from low lives. they are well educated, very succesfull people who have done all they could to help richard on his way back to sobriety. they have done all a family can do. i have never met dan but i can tell you richard culhane is such an example of how--if a person wants-- they can turn their lives around. he did it in 10 short months.

you asked what he was up to and now you know. i hope you are happy for him. god bless you and your family..

IT IS NICE TO SEE SOME GOOD COME OUT OF A BAD SITUATION. CONGRATS TO RICH FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING. I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL HEALTHY LIFE.
GIVING BACK TO OTHERS IS SUCH A GREAT FEELING. I WAS IN YOUR POSITION 12 YEARS AGO AND I NEVER LOOKED BACK. YOUR PAST IS YOUR PAST. KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT FUTURE. FEED OFF THE NEGATIVE PEOPLE THAT WISH BAD THINGS ON YOU SUCH AS DEATH. THEY HAVE TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR JUST AS YOU DO. IT IS SO SAD THAT SOMEBODY CAN HAVE THOSE FEELINGS. HOPEFULLY THEY CAN FIND PEACE OF MIND IN THEIR LIFE AS YOU HAVE IN YOURS. STAY THE COURSE AND HAVE A WONDERFUL FUTURE. MY THOUGHTS ANND FAITH ARE WITH YOU. YOU ARE A TRUE WINNER. BEST OF LUCK RICH!!
