She is $550,000 richer, however Karen Klein the bullied school bus monitor told Anderson Cooper at CNN "that she has no clue what caused the kids to do this. Perhaps, "'Trying to impress each other.'" She says deep down they aren't bad kids but things happen especially when they get together.
Klein has not received any apologies though Anderson Cooper received two kid's apologies to Klein. Klein, did not take them seriously and said of one: "Of course he's going to say anything," "Josh, after he said something always wants to cause trouble so I don't think I would believe anything Josh would say."
Klein said she "'doesn't think'" she'll press charges though she does believe the kids should be punished in some way such as being kept off of the bus for at least a year, forbidden from playing any sports for a year and perhaps doing some community service.
During the interview Cooper told Klein that Southwest Airlines has made her and nine other people an offer to send them to Disney World, Florida for three nights. Klein's response was, "Wow, that's too much." "I don't feel like I've done anything, you know?"
Klein keeps getting wealthier by the minute. The indiegogo campaign to raise $5,000 to send Klein continues to sky rocket from $260,000 yesterday to over $550,000 today. Klein can't believe it as she isn't certain she will see any of the money.
