George Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, tells Anderson Cooper exclusively that his client raised more than $200,000 through his website. This contradicts previous statements Zimmerman and O'Mara have made about his finances. There's a discrepancy between what was stated during Zimmerman's bond hearing and the new information about donations.
Initially, O'Mara said he was told that the website created by Zimmerman with a Paypal account for donations had received around 700 to a few thousand dollars. The attorney found out about the $200,000 when he was in the process of trying to "shut down" Zimmerman's internet presence.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
