Former Raiders OL Vadal Alexander’s father was paid 180k from embezzled money

Former Raiders OL Vadal Alexander is in the headlines but not for playing the game. He is in the news because his dad was paid money stolen from a hospital.

Former Oakland Raiders draft pick Vadal Alexander was in the news today even though he has not played in the NFL since 2017.

The father of former LSU football offensive lineman Vadal Alexander received payments from a man who plead guilty to stealing more than $550,000 from a nonprofit organization.

Formerly the chief fundraiser for Our Lady of the Lake hospitals in Louisiana, John Paul Funes pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to embezzling money from that organization’s foundation. The Business Report revealed that $180,000 of the stolen money was directed to James Alexander, the father of Vadal Alexander, who played at LSU from 2012-15.

I doubt this is the first time this happened at LSU, but it does not look good.
