Keely Mullen of the “Million Student March” made a fool of herself last week when she demanded on Neil Cavuto’s show that students get free tuition at public universities. She had no idea how the program she wants should be funded. She was just running with the banner of demanding free stuff.
During her interview, she claimed that her family was hard off financially and benefitted from many governments subsidies. But that actually is not the case. It appears Keely is one of the one percenters that she rails against.
Turtle boy Sports did some investigating into Keely’s claims, and the results are what you would expect from a pampered child.
Well just like Jonathan Butler, the face of the Missouri protests, turned out to be a fraud, Keely Mullen couldn’t possibly been a more hilarious choice for this particular movement. For starters she is from Chicago and she goes to Northeastern – one of the most expensive schools in the country. So here we have this girl, who could very easily go to the University of Illinois and pay in state tuition, but instead chose to fly 1,000 miles to go to a school that costs $50,000 a year. And she wants the taxpayers to pay for this. Logically.
Well as it turns out, she comes from a LOT of money, but yet she’s still whining about the debt she purposely chose to accrue by going to Northeastern. According to her profile, she graduated from Francis Parker High School in Chicago – a school where annual tuition costs $34,560. Mullen’s father owns a home in a very swanky part of Chicago, which according to BlockShopper, cost her family $1,060,000.
