Paul Walker Anonymously Bought $10K Engagement Ring For Iraq War Vet And His Fiancee (Video)

Actor Paul Walker Did Something Extraordinary For An Iraq War Vet And His Fiancee… And They Never Even Knew It Was Him – The Blaze

As friends and family mourn the tragic loss of actor Paul Walker, stories are beginning to emerge that reveal what kind person he really was.

.

This is just one of those stories.

Several years ago, Walker walked into Bailey Banks and Biddle Jewelers in Santa Barbara, Calif., to browse for some high-end jewelry, according to sales associate Irene King. Also in the store were a military veteran who had just finished his first tour of duty in Iraq and his fiancee. They were reportedly looking for an engagement ring.

“There’s Paul Walker,” King recalled another sales associate telling her.

“I said, ‘Yeah, he’s a nice=looking man,'” King told CBS Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, the Iraq veteran and his fiancee had finally found a ring set they really liked, but it far too expensive at $10,000.

“Honey, I can’t afford that,” the veteran reportedly told his fiancee.

Walker then reportedly called over the store manager and told him to put the expensive ring on his “tab.” However, he asked that his identity be kept a secret. While many actors would have made sure the act of charity was on the front page of every tabloid, that was clearly not Walker’s motive.

“To do something like that to a perfect stranger is just unbelievable,” King said.

King posted the story on Walker’s Facebook page, where thousands of people have remembered the 40-year-old star as “generous,” “loving” and with a “heart of gold,” Yahoo! reports.

Walker died in fiery car crash in north of Los Angeles on Sunday following a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide.

The Santa Clarita Valley Signal reported that the Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree and burst into flames. The fundraiser, to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan, took place at a nearby racecar shop.

7 Things Jesse Jackson, Jr. Bought With Stolen Campaign Money

7 Things Jesse Jackson, Jr. Bought With Stolen Campaign Money – Red Alert Politics

Earlier today former Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., D-Ill., pled guilty to a count of conspiracy for misusing more than $750,000 in campaign funds for personal use. His wife, Sandi, is expected to plead guilty this afternoon for filing false tax returns in the years that her husband pilfered from his campaign coiffeurs.

The Jacksons had some – well, let’s say creative – uses for their embezzled cash. Below is a guide to some of the purchases the Jacksons made with the stolen cash:

……..

Apparently the Jacksons were obsessed with memorabilia belonging to deceased celebrities and civil activists, as that is where most of the purloined money was spent. The couple purchased more than $10,000 in Bruce Lee memorabilia between 2007-2009…

……..

…and another $27,000 on collectibles once belonging to Michael Jackson in the months following his untimely death in 2009. Among the items purchased were a fedora and a guitar signed by both the King of Pop and Eddie Van Halen.

……..

The Jacksons also spent $11,000 on memorabilia from the late civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., and several thousand more dollars on memorabilia belonging to the late Jimi Hendrix and Malcolm X.

……..

The former Congressman treated himself to a $43,000 gold-plated Rolex watch in 2007…

……..

…and also decided to redo his children’s bedrooms in 2008, spending nearly $10,000 on new furniture.

……..

The couple also spent more than $5,000 on furs from Edwards Lowell, a Los Angeles boutique, in November 2009.

……..

Last, but not least, there’s the football that the Jacksons purchased for $5,000, which is signed by several former U.S. presidents.
