It has practically been proven that Dana Morales lied about receiving an anti-gay “tip” from two patrons while working as a waitress in Bridgewater, N.J. We later discovered that she also lied about serving in Afghanistan after she reportedly told friends that she was the lone survivor of an explosion that killed everyone in her platoon (she received a dishonorable discharged for missing drills).
Now, it appears that Morales may have also lied when she vowed to donate the money she initially received from “supporters” to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Before it was revealed that her story was likely a hoax, Morales had reportedly received more than $2,000 in donations.
The Bridgewater Patch followed up on her pledge to donate the money to wounded vets and discovered that no donations had been made in Morales’s name as of Thursday. Further, there were zero donations made from any of the ZIP codes in the Bridgewater area.
“A Wounded Warrior representative checking for donations by her name and the ZIP codes for Bridgewater, where the restaurant is located, and Bedminster, where Morales said she lives, was unable to find any matching donations,” the report adds.
It is still possible that Morales made the donation from a different ZIP code, or by a third-party, the representative told the Patch.
Morales’s friends have previously confirmed that the waitress is somewhat of a compulsive liar. In addition to the lies outlined, she also allegedly told friends and acquaintances that she had brain cancer and made up stories about her home being damaged during Superstorm Sandy.
The Gallop Asian Bistro, where this entire web of lies originated, recently suspended Morales while it continues to investigate the case of the seemingly fake receipt. It is unclear at this point if she’s been fired for good.
