Not only is he a grifter "Murray and his nephew and now CEO of the company, Robert Moore, viewed the mining company as a "family piggy bank" and cited a "disturbing pattern of self dealing and abuse of corporate resources." he's getting off scot free "As is common in coal bankruptcies, Murray and its successor company were relieved of any obligation to pay existing black lung benefits by the bankruptcy court."

Oh, and he's a TRUMP supporter.

Death can't come soon enough for these a$$holes.

I could have sworn I saw an earlier thread titled "Eat Shiat Bob".
However this one will do. Enjoy your coal-shortened life you fat fu*ck.

"Additionally, he disputed that he ever fought against regulations to quell the disease or fought miners from receiving benefits.

Murray also threatened to file a lawsuit if a story was published that indicated he had fought federal regulations and benefits."

Yup.

Gee, that's a shame.

I've got a lot going on right now, but in addition to the sympathy included in this post I will spare a quarter thought and the opening words of a prayer. Maybe someone else can piggy back on my sentiments. Is there a GoFundMe-type website for cobbling together thoughts and prayers from multiple people?

Murray, who is now 80 years old, writes that he is heavily dependent on the oxygen tank he is frequently seen using, and is "near death."
