Matthew S. Clarke is not only a deadbeat dad, he also never pays his share of taxes. He walked out on his only child, his daughter Laure Michelle Clarke, 20 years ago and he never paid a dime of child support. He has worked under the name of his twin brother Michael R. Clarke, using Mike's social security number. He makes a good living working for Grady's painting in Lombard, Illinois. Matthew S. Clarke is a lifetime alcoholic. He is a functioning alcoholic. He has numerous driving infractions. He also has numerous DUI's. When are they going to put this loser lowlife away. The States attorney in Kendall County has just about had enough of him.

Write the State's Attorney in Kendall County and let them know you as a citizen wants this idiot kept off the road forever. At any point he is driving drunk. No respect at all for anything.

As for his income taxes, he claims well over the amount of 1. Thus, he gets the least amount of taxes taken out of his pay. Then at the end of the year, he does not file his taxes, because he knows he would have to pay. The IRS has not caught up with him yet. Also, there are the years he worked for Jim's Decorating in West Chicago, under his twin's name, while his twin lived in Texas, collecting welfare. Bad family, Anger issues, Alcohol abuse and drug abuse. Watch out for this man? (term used loosley) He lies, he steals, he cheats, anything for a buck. Anything for alcohol. Anything for porn. He once described a little girls vagina as a "small flower, soft, fragrant and waiting to be opened". Sick individual. I dated him for about 8 months. Once I found out his lifestyle, I left, Immediately.

Matt is 6'1". About 190lbs. He is balding with gray hair. Most of his back teeth are missing. What teeth he has are held in with ceramic glue, which he does himself. You can't miss it when he smiles. Sick, perverted, sad individual. He also does many side jobs and gets paid in cash. His daughter and ex-wife will never see any support owed to them. He walked away , scott free. The state of Illinois does nothing to protect it's citizens.

I am Matthew. I want to apologize to everyone

AUTHOR: Matt Clarke - ()

Well, here I am, tired of running, tired of cheating and lying, tired of causing trouble and being in trouble and tired of not being with my only LOVE, Kathy.

This report is to apologize to everyone in the world who reads it, especially the love of my life, Kathy. 

Kathy, you let your love and anxiety for me lead you into trying your best to get me the help I needed.  It led you into doing for me what I all along should have done for myself.  You were always so strong.  You amazed me with your inner strength and how you handled life.  I still do not know anyone stronger than you. You assumed my responsibility and my failures. I watched it hurt and pain you.  I watched you work very hard to keep the bills paid, through my lying and cheating with taking money.   Life was hard enough on you while taking care of disabled kids and trying to make a good home for everyone.  You, Kathy, accepted my promises.  I believe somewhere in there, you knew I would promise anything to get off the hook.  I never told you the truth.  I never told you everything going on in my world of alcohol.  My denial has always been my reality.  My Love, I have lied to you, I have cheated on you, I have put you in bad and dangerous situations.  I created a nightmare of living for you and all you did was try to love me and take care of me.  I destroyed you and our relationship, a relationship that was so very good for me.  I denied it all through the use of alcohol and weed.  Kathy, My Love,  I exploited you and took advantage of you, then I smeared your name to those who I thought were my friends because they allowed me to drink without fear.  None of those friends cared about my drinking or what it did or what problems it caused.  I miss YOU, Kathy.  I miss your laughter and cooking.  I miss your jokes and job stories.  I miss our dogs.  I miss the family parties and dinners.  You loved having everyone over and cooking. I miss the kids.  I lost their respect long before you gave up on me.  I caused all 3 such pain and harm.  I miss the life we did have, the happy times before my drinking and cheating became so out of control.  I want those times back, with YOU, Kathy.  Remember how we fit like a glove?  Remember when we first met, how we spent our time alone?  Honey, Babe, My Love, Beautiful.  My pet names for you.  Please do not let it be too late for us.  Please let me have just one more chance to have you back.  I have problems to take care of right now and I will.  After it is all over, I want you back in my life.  I hope after writing this that you will see it.  I have tried to send you letters to an old email and they come back.  I guess you closed that account.  How can I find you and talk with you?  All the talking in the world may not make a difference, but I promise that you will see the changes coming from inside me.  I'm tired of running from my thoughts and love for you.  We were each others soul mates.  Remember? 

This is me, this is and has been my entire life.  I am an alcoholic, which also made me a great liar and cheat.  To say it has caused problems in my life is an understatement.  To say it has caused problems in the lives of those who have loved me without constraints, trusted me beyond imagination and believed I would get the much needed help to save me is another understatement, double scored.  My behavior has always been highly inappropriate and I have said and done far too many things that I regret.  I can not take back the lost years of my life and the years I have taken away from loving family.  I am ashamed and sorry for my actions.  I have spent my entire life blaming everyone else for those actions, without taking a good long hard look at myself. 

Laura, my daughter.  I walked away.  I blamed anyone but myself.  Your Mom did nothing to me but offer a relationship on good grounds with my only child, YOU.  I understand that on many occasions she found me not fit to be alone with you.  I was sure my drunk was hidden on those days.  I have learned that I could never fool the strong, loving women in my life.  To the whole world, I did not pay any child support.  My wife at the time, Kathy, would send her child support payments to pay for my daughter and that is after she found out I took the money for support payments and spent it on alcohol.  Again, someone else stepping up and doing my job.  I have always loved you Laura.  Fear, confrontation, you name it, stood in the way of me getting in touch with you.  I feared your wrath and rejection.  It was easier for me to hide than to face the truth.  Now, looking at the posts about me, I am humiliated, ashamed, embarassed.   No more denial for me.  No more blaming someone else for these truths about me.  I don't know you, Laura.  I don't know what else to say other than maybe someday we can talk and figure out then what we will do from that point. 

I have no idea what tomorrow will bring for me.  I will do my best to make all the wrongs I've done, right.  If I can get a few prayers out there and I'm not too hated, please pray for 3 things.  1).  That I always stay on the straight and narrow now and faulter no more  2).  That my beautiful daughter, Laura finds it in her heart and soul to at minimal, listen to me.  3).  That the Love of my Life, Kathy finds it in her heart and sould to at minimal, listen to me.

Matt works in New Jersey - write the Governor

AUTHOR: Friend forever - ()

Matthew S. Clarke will never pay the people he owes.  He doesn't give one iota of a crap how badly he affected any one elses life.  Matt only cares about himself and keeping himself out of jail.  Matt is still fighting a DUI in Will County, IL.  He has also requested permission and received permission from the County to work out of State in New Jersey.  Yes folks, he's going to make money, not to pay those he's done wrong, but to pay for Bobbi L. Oros Lumpkin, Chad Lumpkin and himself to live good and to keep paying his attorney to keep himself out of jail.  I have written the governor of the State of New Jersey and asked him to google this person and see what damage he has done to way too many. 

Matthew S. Clarke and Bobbi L Oros Lumpkin, please stop lying, please pay all Matt's bills, not just those that help you live.  Bobbi L Oros Lumpkin - - - Matt wallked out on his only child and never looked back, he never cared if she was clothed, fed, housed.  Are you too stupid to realize he will do this to you, given an opportunity?  Have you been told how he talks about you and vajaja surgery you had?  Have you been told how he has continually lied to you about his past?  Are you really that stupid to believe his stories?  Bobbi L Oros Lumpkin, I am in receipt of some interesting divorce papers and order of protection papers.  Have you been told how Matt laughs at what you have done to your ex?  Are you both about cheating people, then laughing about it?  Karma is a biotch.  Look at what you are putting Chad through by allowing a drunken, lying man into your home.  Do you, Bobbi L Oros Lumpkin ever make Matt step up and take care of his business or is it more important that only you are taken care of, since you are his "toy toy" right now?  I've been past your *blue* home.  I've seen you outside.  Can your face get any redder?  Think Matt really enjoys humping over that big fat stomach of yours?  Think he's NOT cheating on you?  Think Matt really does not think about his ex wives?  Only a fool who hasn't taken the time to get to know him would think he is a wonderful upstanding guy.  What goes around, comes around - - - in case you have not expereinced it yet.

Matt was arrested in October of 2011 for another DUI.  Go to the Will County Circuit Clerk site, click on search and type in:  Matthew S. Clarke.  The moron's date of birth is:  01/19/1957.  He was charged with FELONY DUI.  Upgraded charges were filed once it was discovered he has multiple DUI's. 

Bobbi L Oros Lumpkin has paid his bail.  Bobbi is listed on the case.  Is this a man or another poor woman who believes this creep?  If Bobbi is a woman, pity on your poor soul as Matt will rake you over the coals and burn you with the hot embers.  Matt will lie to you, then laugh about you behind your back. 

Time for jail Matthew.  Time to pay the piper for everything you have done to wonderful women and children.  Time to do YOUR time.

Matthew****have you attempted to pay your child support?  Wait***what is your answer?  No matter how old your daughter is, don't you owe her at least that much?  Wait***what is your answer?  Ohhhh sorry Matthew**unfortunately you are paying for FELONY DUI charges.  Sorry, but what does that have to do with paying your daughter what has been owed to her for decades?  Never were a Dad to her, were you?  Never were a faithful husband or good father to anyone, were you?  Never paid your debts, always left women in bad shape**Wait***what is your answer?  Ohhhhhhh, that's right**it has always been and will be about YOU, you drunken, "pot" ridden sad sack of a "man"????  Only when it benefits you, will you pay!!!!!

Quite frankly Matt***what do women see in you?  You are aged beyond your years, you don't have a soul, you have/own nothing, and you seek out and find good hearted, loving women, with kids that you take total advantage of and destroy.  I understand from other posts that you even have some strange teeth in your mouth.  Can we all laugh at you now???  Look at what you have made of your life************

Nothing will change Matt, can we please move on?

AUTHOR: Kathy C - (United States of America)

My name is Kathy.  I am the Kathy named on this site.  I am not the same Kathy who posted the Liar letter.  Some people are trying to apologize to me for some of the things that happened in the past.  I will respond to them later in this letter.  A few weeks ago, I was speaking with Matt's daughter Laura via email on facebook.  Laura had friended me.  She mentioned all the postings on this page.  I told Laura that she should stay off of the page and let it go.  She doesn't need to read this stuff, nor respond to it.  I did not have the guts to look at that time, as I've taken much of the blame from Matt for everything in his life.   Some of the garbage on here I can vouch for, some of it I know nothing about.  I cannot verify or deny.  Reading this material has taken up alot of my time today.  I consider my time valuable but I also feel the need to respond and ask some very big favors here. 

Laura, you are a wonderful young lady, very beautiful with a fantastic voice.  I am proud to know you.  You are level headed, sincere, passionate.  These are traits your Mom taught you.  If Matt had been in your life, only God knows where all of you would have headed.  Matt has told different stories on why he walked out of your life.  All of them have blamed your Mom.  I know the truth Laura.  You and I have talked about it.  Matt's past was catching up with him and you and your Mom know those truths.  I was naive and in love.  Like many of Matt's friends, I believed the horror, drama filled stories he told.  I apologized to you for that when we spoke on the phone last summer.  I do believe you forgave me.  Like I told you when we spoke, I have never had a alcoholic in my life.  My family are not drinkers.  It took a very long time to figure out how manipulating, hateful, negative and deceitful Matt is.  I chose too many times to have faith and believe my (then) husband. After all, he would not lie!!  I learned the hard way, with the hard knocks.  I suffered and my kids suffered due to the fighting, and his yelling and violence and most of all the drinking and the hiding of the drinking.  Years later, I learned what possesses an addict to take from his family.  The hurt and shame I felt will never leave me.  The positive that came out of it for me was that I learned from it all and moved on to a wonderful, happy life.  I have surrounded myself with fantastic, positive people who know how to carry on a decent and respectful conversation.  I share my life with a wonderful man now and in the years I've known him, we have never had a cross word said between us or an above normal voice level conversation.  It is a dream come true for me.  I know Laura that you are happy also.  I would like to talk briefly about your Mom.  She is a very strong lady, who loves you very much.  What he must have put her through in those days just went on to make her stronger and more determined to get you everything you need to live a happy, fulfilled life.  When you talked about her, I could hear the pride in your voice. 

To those from Lockport who have posted an apology I have this to say:  no apology necessary.  It sounds as though you have finally met the real Matt.  I'm sorry it took so long.  My years with Matt cost me alot.  Alot of mean, vulgar lies have been told about me by him.  I spent many years trying to get Matt to quit his drinking.  It was a losing battle.  He preferred his drinking buddies and the lies to a good home life with myself and the kids who loved him.  I have learned that this is the way of addicts.  They always think they are right and know better. 

My favors:  Laura, please stay off this site.  Let the man be in your past.  There is absolutely nothing that he can offer you emotionally.  He cannot even help himself.   You have a wonderful mother and father who have loved you and given you a good life.  I will always be here for you.  The kids also.  You and I have talked about that.

Everyone else who has posted or may read this:  Please don't give this page anymore time.  Posting these things do nothing to a man like him.  The picture, ugh, the picture, who does that kind of thing??  This will not prevent him from getting work, this will not prevent him from getting anything that he wants.  Let's all finally and permanently shut him out of our lives.  I truly believe that the best revenge is always moving forward and living well. 

One more favor to the owner of this site:  Please take this page down.  I'm asking you to do this for Laura, myself and my kids.  Many who know us and have known us in the past with Matt, might see this page.  They will recognize alot of what has been said here.  Please don't put us through anymore.  Life was difficult enough.  This page won't hurt him.  He's oblivious to life.  Don't play into his need for drama and lies.  Please. . . . . . . . you can stop this madness now.

Thank You

Worked with Matt

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

I prefer to remain anonymous.  I did work with Matt in St. Charles, IL.  Matt was a painter for a builder in the city.  Matt ruined everything with his lies.  Matt lied to everyone.  Matt sold his ladders and his sprayers and painting equipment to pay for his binge drinking.  Matt was married to a lovely lady at the time and he would not go home . . . all so he could drink.  I hated how he treated his family.  He would also get advances from the builder and other jobs and use the money for drinking.  He laughed about the bills not getting paid, he laughed about the lies he told his wife, he laughed about everything.  See, with Matt, life was one big party and joke during those years. Sounds like he hasn't changed one bit.   He was verbally and physically abusive to his wife and family.  He never mentioned he had a daughter.   
I love that it's happening this way, with this site. People like Matt think they are untouchable, and it's about time he realize that he's not. He's not irreplaceable either. Matt is a narcissistic personality. He will never be a more decent person. His friends aren't doing him any favors by coddling him through this. He brought this on himself, and not until he faces his own demons and owns his own part in this will he recover. This is a very good lesson for him that most people learn in kindergarten......he's not the center of the universe. It's about time his antics and tantrums aren't rewarded.
Matt has always gagged me. He has never failed to move to the negative and hes done this without caring about how his actions will or have affected his family his employers or anyone else. Really, his ego is so huge, he looks like an old has-been. This site really brought a smile to my face -- . Good enough -- this idiot thought he could get away with anything, and now found out he can't -- You are pitiful...and uneducated. You pathetic soul... He just got so full of himself. Drugs, booze and people all around you who keep telling you how much better you are than the rest of the human race will get ya every time.

Matt is having to learn the consequences (at long last) of his behavior. He has some deep-seated problems which most likely are exacerbated by his excessive use of alcohol and/or drugs. He needs to realize that he is no different that the rest of us...we reap what we sow, karma, whatever. Maybe he will decide to get real and get help.
You're an idiot!!! If anything, Matt needs a good butt kicking. Theres always one in every family.. Keep drinking Matt, keep doing drugs and maybe you will add another 10 years to your face
It's painfully obvious that you have broken one too many boards with your head.
He should feel totally ashamed about his actions that resulted in his being fired from jobs, losing 2 wives and family members. He is like a human tornado, ripping through life and destroying everything in his path, like his marriages, his childrens lives, and his own life to boot. Grow up Matt, it's about time.
It is sad that when you look back, we all laughed and never realized how sad it really was. Matts wife tried to tell us, but his lies and bullshit was so convincing.
Matt had his chance with 2 previous wives and family and now he has blown it.
Reality Check! You're really losing! Let the drinking and using resume!
You did it to yourself Matt. You are NOT the center of the universe
Oh wait. Let me see if I can shed a tear for Matt ....Nope. Nothing.
Matt needs to seek help, for it is clear when one looks into his eyes, that no one rational is operating inside his mind. It is hard to predict in delusional cases.
I think it is about time that poor little Matt wake up and smell the roses.
He needs to find a good real life Psychiatrist. That's what happens when you get too big for your britches. Maybe he will learn some humility from this.....NOT!!
Its a lonely life being an alcoholic and drug user, in the end, they all do end up confused, and alone, and they wonder why.
If he hasnt yet, he will probably hit rock bottom soon. Everyone needs to HOPE for that, because until anyone with a drug/drinking/mental health problem hits rock bottom, nothing will change their self-destructive behavior, especially when they believe that there are no consequences for their actions. Poor Matt blew it, when he started to believe his own hype. He should of thought about this when he was on his 500 pack of cigs and his thousands of beers

Check out the Public Agencies

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

Matt is a big baby with a big temper if things don't go his way. He has in his mind the way he thinks things are supposed to go. And when they don't go according to plan he gets way too upset. I would not want this guy around my child. He seems to be of the "children need to be seen but not heard" type. The way he boils over quickly in anger and the intensity of that anger are huge red flags. If he feels you are criticizing him or somehow not going along with him, he lashes out with oversized emotions. He is frightening. I have seen this same syndrome and personality disorder in murderers, stalkers and offenders. It is not a personality anyone can live with on a daily basis. Matt is psychotic, luring you into his den with soft spoken words, his Ive been abused by my parents and ex-wives stories, making you believe he is an upstanding citizen and man, never doing anything wrong, then, when the time is right, you see the true character, the manipulator, the troubled soul and mind. We are sure there are police reports, arrest reports and violations out there in surrounding villages. One just has to be open minded enough to seek it out.

Matt is the typical addict and alcoholic - selfish and heartless. Stealing from family, friends and employers is the bottom of the barrel. Trust Matt around your family and possessions and when he leaves, you had better take a good stock of your belongings. A retard has better sense. He will steal your jewelry, anything of value in your house, he will go into a womans purse and steal the money in the wallet, he will steal from your kids and family members, he will steal from his employer and he will sell everything for cash for his alcohol and drugs.

Matt will double talk, backtrack and change the subject in order to not talk about the truth. If hes not doing this, he is making it up as he goes along. Go ahead - - - - - - - let him tell his story, then ask him some questions based on what he told you - - - - - - - guaranteed you will get a different story.
People just dont get it; Matt is a liar, a professional liar and believes everything he says. He has an odd belief that the world belongs to him.

Matts talking to the voices in his head does not qualify as discussion Poor Matt believes that the discussions in his head count for something. Can you be an actual participant in anything?? Can you - especially where your perception is always skewed?

A drug addict, alcoholic, woman abuser - - - Matt, could you be anymore repulsive? What kind of man is Matt? A lying, cheating, alcohol-abusing, woman-hitting, trash-talking, aging, promiscuous man(?) whos lost his teeth, his hair, his child and his mind. Matt is so full of crap-what a loser. I am sure Matts mind is half baked.No one gives a crap anymore about his guy. He has stung former friends, family, coworkers, employers and business associates.

Matt has brought all of this on himself. He has made false and defamatory statements about others. No one escapes Matts meanness and necessary self gratification in his quest to make up all sorts of stories. Its how he rolls. To your face, he is your best friend, wanting to do anything and everything for you, behind your back, he is telling everyone how he hates you, how stupid you are, how your kids are brats and morons, how you cheat on your spouse AND - It doesnt stop there. Frankly, I find his actions in this regard immature at best.. I do hope that one day he makes his amends for these imprudent public statements...He owes people that he never wants to face, big apologies and restorations.

Matt is a sex addict also. His best friend is his right hand. He actually prefers this to warmth and intimacy. No one and nothing is enough for him. Just like drinking one beer is enough - - NOT. Hes laughable and he lives in an alien world, safely tucked away at the back of his pea sized brain. Dont you love how he has an odd bounce as he walks - childlike and awkward?
I am quite sure that if Matt reads any of these stories he will #1. Deny them #2. Blame someone else for them. This many people are not wrong. Too many people who knew him in the past and now the present have come forward with their story. What about those who have not responded or dont know about this site? He has burned all his bridges. Even the daughter he walked out on, without paying a dime in child support, has come forward with the same life experience. My guess is the true story would be in the child support courts, local courts and various police agencies, whether it is traffic offenses, DWIs, domestic violence, theft. Matt walked away from his own daughter, his own flesh and blood - if he can do this, what do you think he can do to anyone else? Wouldnt we love to sit and talk with his daughter or family member and hear their story? I know I would give a kidney for it. Bets are the theme would be the same.  Think he's telling you the truth or the full story?  Think again!

Get Help Matt

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

Matt thinks of women and uses them as his human sperm toilets, all you have to do is lift his lid and anyone can use it. Matt has an entitlement thing going here. All we can accurately say is this is a man who is fifty four and has no firm roots in his life that are of any quality that drugs and alcohol and cheating and stealing hasnt ruined. Matts life choices are so very poor that his very life is in the balance, his mind is deteriorating right before our eyes, and if your sense of judgment happen to escape that fact, then you deserve to be disappointed. Matts judgment is further impaired and for what reason? Nothing other than those bad choices. Matt is something of a spectacle. We have to understand with alcoholics and drug addicts there are a lot of tempting choices and not all of them are good and some even deadly. So whos to envy Matt right now? Those who believe Matts lies and delusions continue to add to Matts confusion by listening and agreeing and giving approval while we indirectly cheer a man to continue on to his eventual doom? It's people like you who stop on the freeway to gawk at a gory car crash while holding everybody else up. He seems like a fragile rather mentally ill guy to me...I feel sorry for him and his former families who had to live with his delusions, lies, cheating, drugs, alcohol and stealing. Anyone stupid enough to believe and trust in him deserves to lose everything they will lose because of him. I wouldn't piss on Matt if he were on fire. Anybody stupid enough to believe you and support you in your delusions lies and bullshit, deserve whatever comes to them. What the hell are people expecting? Are they all morons? Why would anyone fall for his load of crap? Matt has lost his mind. In addition, he's an arrogant jerk. Sadly, Matt is a train wreck. Entertaining him by listening to his bullshit means you are a deluded train wreck. The only support he needs right now is no one else feeding his ego. He needs help, NOT this. He will give you what he promised. NOTHING!!!

Matt, you blow job after job. You cause pain and heartache. You easily walk away from the problems you cause because you dont have the mentality or balls to face it. To face these problems means you must face your lies. Its much easier for you to blame others. Feel that Matt? This is the bottom you need to find. I just hope you dont drag too many down with you.
If youre smart and before it's a point of no return go back and apologize to those you hurt. Ask for forgiveness and fix what you broke. Clean yourself up, stop the drinking, get off drugs, and act like a decent person. It really isnt funny anymore. How many people want to see a 54 year old man in little boy shorts? Hugh Heffner, you are not. But to his credit he doesn't wear little boy shorts. You are nothing but delusional, feeding your own ego and dismissing anyone who would disagree with you. Disgusting.
I guess this just proves that many people enjoy drama. He's circling the drain and one day we will read something very ugly regarding him or something he's done

How nice, Matt, you have 2 separate reports on you



Matt is so obviously in the throws of addiction.

Addicts like Matt have attitude, are sexual deviate, add drugs to the mix and have a hidden life that unfolds little by little and is shocking. Matt is not the person he tries to make everyone think he is. It is truly scary, and I absolutely believe everything that Matt is accused of. Matt will always wrap himself up in his own alcohol warped world and it won’t end well, he will harm himself or anyone who is around him. Matt is an education for those who aren't aware of how a TRUE addict acts. He is so fried he'll never come back, and he is living his last chapter.
Matt has a very repulsive side and at the expense of others he shows this often. He lies, he cheats, he steals, he is a sexual deviant with a massive addiction, he walks away from his responsibilities, he brings drama, he does drugs, he uses and abuses women, he makes fun of kids and kids of women he is with. Matt hates kids. He will take every opportunity to talk against kids and what they are doing in their lives. He is jealous of kids. Matt has a penchant for married women.
Even Fred has been repulsed by your sexting with Bobbie and the fact of her marriage. Fred has even gone so far as to show his repulsion by posting on face book. You fool no one. What a P.O.S.
Unfortunately, your mother did not believe in abortion.
You surely have shown you are not mentally capable of caring for yourself or anyone else. You are always in a state of incoherent diminished capacity.
Matt makes his choices on stuff that is twisted. He is always in the sleazy zone. He is a troubled soul and latches onto anyone and anything he can use and abuse. Matt has deep rooted mental issues.
Matt, you suck the life out of those you pull into your lies, alcoholism, drugs, sexually deviant ways and drama. It shows how delusional and out of touch with reality you are. You never look at the consequences of your actions on others. You just take your things and walk away. You are not mature or smart enough to care about others or yourself. You are a creep.
Save yourself for the REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE - like porn, and drugs, and making a total FOOL of yourself in front of the whole wide world....... You, Matt are PICKLED. You, Matt are BRAIN DEAD. You, Matt, have absolutely NO moral fiber - - - NONE.
You are the poster child for keeping abortion legal.
I believe the women in your past when they state that you have been verbally abusive and threw tantrums and screamed and ranted and raved. I believe when people from your past post and state you are a cheater, an alcoholic, drug addict, thief and woman abuser. I believe all of them. You EXPECT people to tolerate this abusive behavior. It must be very difficult for families and friends and employers you worked for to have dealt with you. You are a compulsive liar. You have taken total advantage of your friends. You have treated us as though we are fools. Bobbie, get this immoral, deadbeat dad, alcoholic, drug addict, child hater, liar, cheater, woman abuser, user out of your family and life. He has talked about your kids. You have a son in a band. Matt talks about how the a*****e can’t sing, how his voice is shaky and off tune. He says your son in the band is gay and poses nude and has these pictures on the web. OF all things, he says how your son is a drug addict and alcoholic. It won’t stop. This is Matt’s way. To your face he will be kind and polite, but behind your back, you are fair game.
The only 'stones' Matt has are the rocks in his head! He is walking a path he has chosen and he will take you down with him. It is a very dangerous path. He enjoys acting out and he’s been doing it his whole life. Matt works very hard on losing his life, by choice, willingly. You will enjoy him until he hurts you or one of the kids, badly, unless they happen to like that kind of 'stuff.' There is nothing fun or amusing about Matt and his chosen lifestyle; he is far from fun to look at, given what his lifestyle has done to his body! If the body looks that bad, one can only imagine what his mind is like!
Matt, your own daughter, your flesh and blood, has posted how much better her life is without you, how you ignored her needs and well being. Do you have any shame?

A necessary apology

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

Matt, this apology is not to you. 

After years of knowing you, I was told to take a look at this site and I believe everything on here.  You indeed are a pathetic and childish person.  You have always had childlike ways, but the level of your irresponsibility and immaturity speaks volumes in the above blogs. 
If she reads this site, my apology is to Kathy.  I was part of the Lockport, IL group and Matt, I listened to you degrade Kathy.  I also listened to the stories you told, the ones where you cheated on her over the years, with numerous women.  Women you met at high class places like white castle, oswego bar, liquor stores and anyplace you could find a low class speciman without self esteem to get involved with you.  You've shared these conquests over the years with men you work with and socialize with.  You laughed at doing these things, not considering once that you had a woman at home who wanted what was best for you and was hurt and in pain over the bullshit things you were doing to her.  You've gone as far as talking about the fact that neither Kathy nor your first wife Debi Jo would have sex with you.  Who in their right mind would???????????  You are a cheater by your own admission!!!!!!  Did you always really think that two intelligent, strong women would not know this????  You really think they believed your lies?????  Let me tell you, we in Lockport, IL, listened to your stupid ramblings and we knew you were lieing.  Do you want to know the saddest part Matt??  The night Kathy called Ed and Dave and Fred, looking for you because you had told her that you needed to go help Bobbie because she was upset because Dave wouldn't move in with her.  We listened to her voicemail and felt bad for her because it was hours and you wouldn't answer your phone and she was concerned that maybe trouble had broken out over this.  She was respectful and begged for someone to call her back and let her know you were okay.  She called and talked with Ed, poor Ed and Amanda, had no clue, only knowing what a cheater you are.  That night Matt, we know you were with the Boobi you are with now.  

You didn't pay on a contract you had with Kathy.  She bought your truck for you.  You lied to us about it, that is until one of the guys found your paperwork and realized that the same truck was bought in Kathy's name, with her money, then signed over to you upon you agreeing in writing to pay off the Grand Prix.  Did you do that Matt??  No, of course not, you let the car get repossessed didn't you??  Blame Kathy???  Yes you did.  Liar!  Nice, honest, caring man aren't you?  Did you care what position you were putting her in?  Of course not, Matt, it's always and only about you and what you can gain, no matter how despicable it is.

Now, let's talk about what you did about Ed and Amanda's vehicle.  You never paid on time.  You were working with Fred and Matt and Dave and collecting unemployment, but we know Matt, you paying on this for Kathy wasn't going to last as you were already with Boobi and helping out Kathy by paying on your contract was not going to fit into your plan.  After all, why should you honor it when you wouldn't even honor your child support order.   When you stopped paying, did you consider how that might affect Kathy??  Did you contact her to find out if she could get another vehicle??  Doubt it, you never operate with integrity and honesty.  The coward you are left it up to Ed to handle it all.  You had no intentions of honestly doing right by her.  You took from her, in a time of her trusting and look what you gave her back. 

We have listened to you time and time again place the blame for your whole life on others.  Something only irresponsible, childish, crybabies do.  According to all the people who have responded on here and you have known you in the past, you are a loser.  You involve innocent people in your bullshit by lieing to them and dragging them into your s**t.  I would tell on here about your drinking and stealing and other things I personally know about, but I won't because it looks as though everyone else who has had contact with you in your life has already taken care of that. You abused our friendship and our kindness on more occasions than I care to recall.  How stupid you must think we are.

I hurt in my soul for Kathy.  We listened to you berate and belittle this woman who spent alot of years of her life, loving you enough to believe in you changing.  Caring about you enough to make sure you had a vehicle to drive.  We now realize that those arguments were all your fault.  See Matt, realize, we know of your cheating, stealing money, all those lies you told.  The times you let her down because you needed to hang and drink.  We let Kathy down.  We the same people who have met on Sundays to worship our Lord and Saviour.  We, all of us, should have stopped you in your tracks, sent you back home and told you to come back around when you stopped cheating and lieing and putting us in the middle of all of it.

So this is to Kathy, if you are reading this.  I am sorry, from the bottom of my very soul and my whole heart.  A few of us talk about how much you must have cared for Matt.  You tried for so long and for so many years to get him to stop the bad things he was always doing and continues to do.  Thank our Lord you finally gave up and moved on in life.  I understand you have remarried and are very happy.  I am very happy for you and your family.  I have things I would like to tell you, but I won't try to contact you.  It's over for you and it should have been many years ago because Matt is satan.  Yes, he is satan. 

My soul needs cleansing and this is why I am writing this.  I don't know any other way to find you.  My hope really is that you aren't aware of the site.  I, Kathy apologize to you and your kids.  I have spoken to my pastor and all I can do is apoligize and hope you see and forgive.  Matt has not and never will change.  By the way, I have removed myself from the Lockport, IL group.  I have moved on also and it's excillerating.

Matt looks much older than his years. Matthew Clarke exhibits a genuine sadness, not helped by the fact that he is devoid of social, moral and positive actions. Matt frustrates easily with no apparent coping skills in place to draw upon. This is why he ends up taking his problems out on everyone who wastes their time loving and caring for him. He emotionally beats down those who try to get him to stop his destructive ways. Matt never misses an opportunity to exploit anyone foolish enough to believe his insecurities. It is pathetic how Matt spends more time trying to impress his acquaintances, and attain their life's station rather than work on relationships with those who have trusted him to love them, tell the truth and work together in forming a home, devoid of abuse.

Matt is not an educated man and he has a problem, but when shown he had a choice to stay sick or get better, he chose alcohol, drugs, lies, cheating and stealing. Matt definitely has the "other people are to blame" syndrome. Matt is really over the hill and doesn't know it. How sad. He needs to wake up and face reality. He needs all the help he can get as he is delusional.

Matt, you are a liar you are an alcoholic you are a drug addict you are a thief you are a cheater you are a abuser! Yeah, thats right. Ive said it now, and everybody knows.

People who have tried to love you have financially helped and carried you for a long time.

You are so sick. Previous women involved with you and married to you have helped you and stood by you and taken care of you. You have repaid their caring and love and help with drama, lies, untrue stories, stealing, cheating on them and just emotionally beating them down. When you hit rock bottom is when you will remember all this and reach out to them for help.

You, the alcoholic and abuser manipulate others into believing your lies. You tell mean spirited lies and you belittle those you tell those lies to. All this for a perverted thrill and attention. Eventually the truth emerges.

To keep using, you the alcoholic will justify it, minimize it or just deny it. When confronted with your alcoholism, cheating, stealing and lies you have become either incredibly apologetic or you have gotten angry and shut the other person down.

You have exposed those who have loved and cared for you to dangerous conditions and/or injury because of a your drinking.

You have always made problems bigger than what they really were and you made them worse because you needed to create an excuse to drink, do drugs, cheat, steal. All to delay you the alcoholic from getting the help you need. You have lost jobs, cars, family and friends because of your alcoholism. You have belittled and hurt children of relationships who loved and cared for you. You have belittled children of so called friends telling of how they are a*s holes and need to go away. Hell, you have problems with the kids of the woman you know now, calling them worthless, lazy asses who wont work, who is in a band and thinks he can sing, the same singer is gay, and poses naked, and post pictures on websites for everyone to see. You talk about how stupid they are for the tattoos, earrings and hair styles they wear, the beer bong they play and drinking and drugs they do, the bicycles they ride. You make fun of and laugh at them all the time. You talk about the nephews who are drug addicts, going to jail for selling drugs and have no jobs, living with Grandma. The nephew who overdosed on drugs and died. The fat a*s b***h sister (your term) who claims disability. The stupid b***h (your term) you are with who sex texts you and you show everyone and laugh about. All this, for those you care for??? Oh, how kind can you be??

YOU HAVE WALKED AWAY FROM YOUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD DAUGHTER AND BLAME THE MOTHER WHO HAS BEEN THERE FOR HER EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE. YOU HAVE WALKED AWAY FROM STEP CHILDREN WHO ACCEPTED YOU AND BELIEVED YOU AND TRIED TO GET YOU TO QUIT YOUR DESTRUCTIVE WAYS YOU HAVE MADE PROMISES THAT YOU NEVER INTENTED TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOU HAVE WALKED AWAY FROM YOUR MONETARY RESPONSIBILITIES . . . YOU HAVE TAKEN AND HAVE GIVEN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN RETURN YOU . . . THE LIAR, CHEATER, ALCOHOLIC, THIEF AND DRUG ADDICT. YOU HAVE TRASH TALKED EMPLOYERS, PAST AND PRESENT The reality is Matt . . . You live for that next beer . . . You live for that next joint . . . You live for that next sex fix, whether it be by texts, porn, sexual toys or using and abusing a woman you care for. Its all about you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you and whatever thrill you get at that moment and whatever way you can get it. PATHETIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am Laura, and I know I am better off without this scumbag in my life!!

AUTHOR: Laura - (United States of America)

Wow!!  The responses to this one original post have floored me.  I check back here frequently to read about the man (term used VERY loosely) who helped create me.  Actually, lets just call him a sperm donor, because thats really been his only contribution to my life.  My name is Laura, and I am this horrible excuse for a mans daughter.  I guess I just wanted everyone to know that I do indeed realize my life was blessed the day he walked away.  Yesas a 9 year old girl I did not understand why he left.  I did not understand what kind of horrible man he was, and it hurt a lot back then.  I assure you, it does not hurt anymore.  I am now a talented, responsible, grown woman of 32 years who owes a great deal of who she is to her strong, amazing mother.  I have a REAL dad who has been there for me since a very early age, and I am thankful for him every day.  

I remember Matt never having any money.  I remember my mother telling him he could NOT take me anywhere in his vehicle (obviously because of the NEVER-ENDING DUIs), but he could come and take me to the park or something like that.  On those days hed usually opt to not come see me at all.  Hed rather drink and womanize of course!!  Most of my Sunday visits with him were spent at liquor stores, womens houses or bars.  I didnt realize how wrong it all was at the time.  You dont put these things together as a child, and my mother of course did not know this was how my Sundays were spent.  She was very protective of me, and it is because of her I have turned out the complete opposite of this man.      

I appreciate everyone coming on here and sharing their stories and frustrations with this guy.  When I was a child I thought he was the most wonderful man alive.  He was handsome (not anymore apparently!) and fun.  I felt very close to him.  The funny thing is, children grow up and reflect back on their lives.  And looking back I realize how much he ALWAYS disregarded my safety, my needs and my desires.  He has never cared for anyone or anything except for himself.  I hope people continue to post all they know about this horrible low-life.  He needs to be put awayforever.  He needs to be stripped of his ability to hurt anyone else.

Grow Up Matt and Company

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

Matthew S. Clarke, in the uncovering of the guilt and shame from perverted grandiosity of self-preservation, rather than in the nurturing of his own daughter, he is left with NOT only who he is, who he has become, but WHO HE WILL NEVER BE.
You have led a life of transparent incompetence to downward spiral
in your own midlife crisis.

For deceiving his own daughter, he deceives all American daughters in the solidity of afuture generation.

Matts excuse is empty.

This very special type of deadbeat dad, Matthew S. Clarke, sheds pure
astonishment and wonder to the abuse of privilege and the abuse of parentage that this man has carried out unrepentant and shameless for twenty long years.

HIS own daughter has never see a baseball game with her father, hotdog in hand, has never been cheered on from the sidelines of her own events throughout her childhood, has never been encouraged, nor supported by him.

A childhood devoid of a father leaves an absence that no amount of money
can replace, the epitome of the American nightmare, and not the American
dream that every child deserves.

For men like Matthew S. Clarke, his life has netted only pure failure, due to collective selfish choices.

Let the boomerang of shame return to the sender, for Matthew S. Clarke is
the American NIGHTMARE killing not only the dreams of his own daughter, but the
dreams of a Nation for in a collective force of deadbeat dads who must be
held accountable.

May his daughter one day magnify the true glory and pride though devoid of the
teachings of a father, and still pass on the noble gift and respect for creation
to the next generation of her own children's children.

IT is time for CHANGE, one deadbeat father at a time.

Matthew S. Clarke is devoid of fundamental values.

With Matthew S. Clarke, it is only and always one sided, and what's in it for himself. 

He was just outright defrauding his daughter of any money by manipulation.
Matthew S. Clarke used this as a perverse tool to continue to demoralize Debbie
for trying to get the money and also as punishment for leaving him by screaming obscenities, hanging up and withholding even bare necessities for his daughter.

In the beginning, Matthew S. Clarke continuously 'dumped' his daughter off in
regular power trip plays to continue to abuse and exploit.

Matt never pursued custody, or visitation later, willingly giving his ex full physical
custody of their daughter, by not contesting nor filing for any visitation.

Matthew S. Clarkes vendetta is to try to convince everyone that the very mother who raised his daughter with devotion and love, the very

mother that his daughter adores, is a TERRIBLE person.

He sounds so asinine and pathetic.

Frankly, he never made any inquiries about his daughter

Matthew S. Clarke never took any initiatives to provide for his daughter and never made inquiries about his daughters well being.

The truth of the matter was two reasons.

1. Matthew S. Clarke knew he was a very sick man, doing drugs, alcohol, cheating, stealing and wanted to live to party.

2. Matthew S. Clarke also knew that Debbie was a good mother, inherently putting his entire trust for caring for his daughter and it was UNCONTESTED for twenty years.

THE reason why Matt did not and HAS not and probably never will see his daughter is
because he wants to avoid being held accountable for his wrongdoings.
And this would change this man's entire psyche overall and he might break down
altogether, after living in denial and holding tight to justifying in his mind one hundred reasons to be a deadbeat dad.

SO thick headed, Matthew S. Clarke shoots himself in the foot.

So which is it Matthew S. Clarke, you told her to hit the road or you are a devastated father, a victim of a woman who took your daughter from you?


Be a deadbeat dad and WALLOW in your mud all you want!

Remember though, BEING what you are, a filthy swine, doesn't usually get you
respect in a community that you also CONNED into believing you have ethics and
morals and fundamental values and respect for family (nor yourself for that matter).

You even defraud women by lying to let them think that you are a
law abiding citizen when you are a criminal and immoral deadbeat dad.

SO let your women know a little trinket of your true beliefs, including the fact that you have disregarded your own daughter, her entire life and that you are a violent woman abuser.

Fight YOURSELF all you want, you already lost a long long time ago.

Trust me, no one wants you back, loser.

Matthew S. Clarke made every mistake in the book, but was right about one thing ONLY giving custody of his daughter to Debbie. She is a great mother and their daughter has turned into a fine young woman.

In judging a woman, what else matters????

They say it takes a village to raise one child, so hats off to Debbie for
having the hands of many. You are pure light and pure strength and your daughter mirrors it.

Witnesses have offered to come forth in regarding the violent attacks and inhumane cruelty that Matt subjects women to.

Matter of fact, we have an entire file of documents that can be posted as
bonafide FACTUAL proof.

Have it any way you want it, but HAVE IT YOU WILL!

I'm sure in your spin master methods you will conjure up some BULLSHIT STEW.
Why don't you begin by admitting the TRUTH that you were SELFISH in the fact
that you chose drugs, alcohol and screwing around over the stability of a family that youhad?

Why don't you admit those facts of ABUSE before the unbiased witnesses solidify
everything that you are denying? The police reports will speak the truth.

BECAUSE you are a coward and a greasy weasel and will try to slither out of being
held accountable that's why!!!!!

Because abusers stand alone, (other than those sucked into the drainpipe of his
sewage soon to be flushed away) they have an innate ability to create falsities of
blanket statements of everybody; whereas, he is a lonestar fraudster, pure coward without any backbone at ALL.

Like WE already said years ago, it was the best thing Debbie could have done for
herself and your daughter, GETTING AWAY FROM YOU, a pure schizophrenic!



Even your friends that you lost along the way tried to tell you to get a grip of yourself Matt.

You have so obviously spun out of control you have no respect for yourself and
have gone completely downhill in all ways.

You are a greasy weasel coward.

Come out from behind the frilly skirts you hide behind big fella!

Bask in the glory of your only accomplishment DEADBEAT DAD OF AMERICA award

Debbie DOES have many friends and supporters including long term friendships that do recall the very devastating incidences that alarmed many.


Your current and past relationships are built on deceit and a rocky foundation of selective truth telling of MAJOR SIGNIFICANT details deleted.

You are a deadbeat dad and a woman abuser

The woman you are with now is an enabler of a deadbeat dad and woman abuser.


MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE THE ONE REVIEWING HIS HISTORY, unless of course you like living with a woman abuser and deadbeat dad!!!! IF you need to be needed so much, why don't you volunteer for an abused woman's shelter and you will begin to understand the dynamics of an abuser and how easy it is to be manipulated by an abuser.
This says volumes about yourself and you need to go to speak to a woman's abuse hotline and explain that you are being used as a pawn for a deadbeat woman abuser. YOU BRING SHAME TO MOTHERS AND WOMEN EVERYWHERE

TYPICAL for abusers to do this.


YOU ARE A PATHETIC ENABLER!!!! You do not even know the real Matt. PAWN PAWN!!!!!

THIS is a classic example of why and how deadbeats get away with it!!!!!!

Why dont you give Matt the money he owes to many people???? Why dont you make Matthew S. Clarke step up and be a man? Why dont you demand that Matt take care of his responsibilities???

Matthew S. Clarke is a sniveling, slithering snake.

Matthew S. Clarke go run and hide you sniveling weasel,

AND the only one who calls a woman CRAZY for going after child support and other obligations is from the deadbeat dad himself.

Transparent and WEAK from the beginning until the END.

You undermined me and put me down to my face, behind my back and mocked and ridiculed my physical appearance, my clothing, my originality and my creativity and very essence.

You degraded, debased, demoralized me as a woman via physical attacks, motions, hurtful name-calling and overall uncertainty of your moods, violence and uncertain day by day, hand to mouth living that all of this subjected and reduced me to and for uncertainty security.

You compromised my safety.

You physically grabbed, slapped and pinched me and screamed so loud in my ears that you deafened me

You caused such great turmoil and great upset at being caught stealing, cheating, drinking and doing drugs, compromising my emotional health and welfare.

You cheated on me with other women, lied to me, manipulated me and compromised my sexual health with threats via unprotected sex and promiscuity with many other questionable women.

You slandered me to anyone who knew me, including your new acquaintances, employers, potential employers and friendships

You stalked and harassed me when I tired to date new men.

You stole from me, damaged and broke my belongings, clothing anything in the way of your rage

You took advantage of my vulnerability, kindness and love for you.

I know this guy

AUTHOR: Susan - (United States of America)

I am a bartender.  When I knew Matt, he was a customer in a local bar where I worked.  Matt came in everyday after work and talked about his wife and how she kept wanting him to quit drinking.  Matt said he did not have a problem with alcohol.  Matt said his marriage was over because of this so he and I started to date.  I loaned Matt money and started a bar tab because he was always broke.  One day, his wife started working as a day bartender in the same bar.  Kathy was such a nice person and a great bartender.  Matt stopped coming into the bar after she started because he knew he was a liar and he was going to get caught.  I came in early to work one day and talked with Kathy about Matt.  Kathy did not know at that time that he and I dated.  Kathy talked so nicely about Matt and she talked about how he was getting help for his drinking and what kind of bad drinking problem he had.  (she had no clue he was in the bar everyday and drinking)  The bar manager Sue, showed Kathy some video tapes of Matt at the bar and also of him and I sitting there and drinking and kissing.  Kathy quit after this. Her and I talked about what happened between me and Matt and Kathy told me she didn't blame me.  She told me that it is how he is.  He's cheated many times and that he stole from her kids and he always lied and didn't care if bills got paid. 

Here is what I know about Matt:  he is an opportunist.  Matt picks those who own homes or are already set up in nice apartments.  Matt owns nothing. He never did.  He goes to these homes and horns in. You and your husband pay for it all and Matt will come in and take over thanks to someone elses hard work.    Matt has nothing to offer a woman.  Matt gets fired from jobs because of his drinking, he cheats and steals and lies.  Matt's coworkers do not think too much of him.  I still see some of them in the bar I work in now and they talk about how he's been involved with a long time married woman and they share sex texts.  The woman owns a home and has a family.  This is no surprise.  The guys talk about the teeth that he makes himself and wears as real teeth.  They say Jim Grady had to tell Matt that he cannot send him into any private homes to paint because of these teeth.   Oh Lord, what was I thinking when I listened to him and believed him.  Another thing, the whole time Matt and I dated, he never once mentioned he had a daughter.  What a sad creep.  If there is a fool for a woman stupid enough to be involved with himi, well lady, you are getting just what you deserve, including the jokes and disgust of those around you.

The Law Perverted

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

The Law Perverted!   Child Support and Politicians alike have taken the position of Marxist Principal in the Freeworld by dominating and exploiting the working class. Made to perform more labor than is necessary. Alienation-denotes the estrangement of people from their humanity. Child Support has nothing to do with justice, it is a panoply of plundered pops, and overwhelmingly now more than ever, Child Support is a regime whereby a father is forced to finance the filching of his own children. What is most striking is that this witch hunt of zealots has come entirely from government officials. No public outcry ever preceded these measures. The public never demanded that the government take action, nor has any public discussion of this alleged problem ever been held in the national or local media.


Needless to say the voices of pursued parents are seldom heard amid the chorus of condemnation. The bipartisan certainty of their guilt is sufficient to set aside their right to trial and declare them public enemies by general acclaim. Yet there is reason to believe that this problem is an optical illusion and that what is being portrayed as irresponsible fathers is in reality a massive abuse of government power. In recent years, a few cracks have appeared in the monolith. William Comanor writes that child-support obligations the only form of obligation or debt that most of the debtors have done nothing to incur- are now treated far more harshly than any other form of debt.  Attorney Ron Henry characterizes the system as an obvious sham a disaster, and the most onerous form of debt collection practiced in the United States.  The overwhelming majority of so-called deadbeat dads are judicially created, says another attorney. Why all this talk about so-called deadbeat dads? Because there is a lot of money to be made through that myth.


When one begins to research the objective data and the research of independent scholars, it turns out that the problem is mostly the creation of government officials. In fact the myth of deadbeat dad has already been discredited conclusively by Sanford Braver and other scholars. We have already seen that few married or not married fathers seldom voluntarily abandon their children. Beyond this Braver has also shown that little scientific basis exists for claims that large numbers of fathers are not paying child support. Braver found that government claims of nonpayment were derived not from any compiled database or hard figures but entirely from surveys of mothers, and these alone, in setting enforcement policy against fathers, and no effort is made to balance them with surveys of non-custodial parents. Yet Braver found that fathers overwhelmingly do pay court-ordered child support when they are employed, often at enormous personal sacrifice.



A look at government machinery reveals that it was created not in response to claims of widespread nonpayment but before them, and that it was less a response to deadbeat dads than a mechanism to create them. Like new divorce laws (and shortly after their enactment), the child-support regulations and criminal enforcement machinery were created while few were paying attention.

Under pressure from bar associations and feminist groups, President Gerald Ford signed legislation creating the Office of Child Support Enforcement in 1975, warning at the time that it constituted unwarranted federal intrusion into families and the role of states. Contrary to professions of concern for the children, the principal purpose was never to provide for abandoned or impoverished children but to recoup welfare costs for the government. In fact, no study has ever been undertaken by the Department of Health and Human Services, Congress, or any branch of government to explain the reason for the agencys existence.

Almost immediately the program began to expand exponentially, increasing tenfold from 1978 to 1998. The massive growth of law-enforcement machinery and reach was federally driven. In 1984, the Child Support Enforcement amendment to the Social Security Act required states to adopt child support guidelines. The legislation was promoted by the OCSE itself and by private collection companiesagain less to help children than to save the government money under the theory that it would help get single-mother families off of welfare by making fathers pay more.  Because most unpaid child support is due to unemployment, and because most non-custodial parents of AFDC [welfare] children do not earn enough to pay as much child support as their children are already receiving in AFDC benefits, according to researchers Irwin Garfinkel and Sara McLanahan, higher child-support guidelines could not help these children.

Then, with no explanation or justification (or constitutional authority), guidelines and criminal enforcement machinery conceived and created to address the minority of children in poverty were extended, under pressure from OCSE and other interests, to all child-support orders, even the majority not receiving welfare, by the Family Support Act of 1988. This vastly enlarged the program and transformed a welfare provision into an entitlement. Today welfare cases, consisting mostly of unmarried parents account for only 17 percent of all child-support cases, and the proportion is shrinking. The remaining 83 percent of non-welfare cases consist largely of previously married fathers who are usually divorced involuntarily and who generally can be counted on to pay.  With wage withholding, the number of dollars passing through the government collection system exploded, mostly from non-welfare cases for which the system was never designed, which currently accounts for 92 percent of the money collected.

The 1988 law also made the guidelines presumptive and, for all practical purposes, compulsory. By one estimate the new guidelines more than doubled the size of awards. Yet that point was already known among policy makers and scholars that, with the exception of the relatively small number of poor and unemployed fathers, no serious problem on nonpayment existed. Not only was Braver presenting the results of his research, but a federal pilot study commissioned four years earlier by OCSE itself was published with similar findings. Originally the full-scale government-sponsored study was planned to follow up the pilot, but that was quashed by the OCSE when the pilots findings threatened the justification for the agencies existence by demonstrating that non-payment of child support was not a serious problem. The Congressional Research Service also concluded at about the same time that no serious problem existed.

Promoted as a program that would reduce government spending, federal child-support enforcement has incurred a continuously increasing deficit. The overall financial impact of the child-support program on taxpayers is negative, the House Ways and Means Committee reports. Taxpayers lost $2.7 billion in 2002.

This money does not vanish. It ends up in the pockets and coffers of state officials, for whom it constitutes a lucrative source of revenue and income. Most states make a profit on their child-support program, according to Ways and Means, which notes that States are free to spend this profit in any manner the State sees fit. In other words, federal taxpayers (who were supposed to save money) subsidize state government operations through child-support. This also transforms family courts from impartial tribunals into revenue-generating engines for the state government.

In addition to penalties and interest, states profit through federal incentive payments based on the amount collected, as well as receiving 66 percent of operating costs and 90 percent of computer costs.  (When two states collaborate, both states qualify for the incentive payment as if each state had collected 100 percent of the money.) Federal outlays of almost $3.5 billion in 2002 allowed Ohio to collect $228 million and California to collect $640 million. There is a $200 million per year motive driving this system in Michigan alone, attorney Michael Tindall points out. It dances at the strings of federal money.

To collect these funds states must channel payments through their criminal enforcement machinery, further criminalizing involuntarily divorced parents and allowing the government to claim its perennial crackdowns are increasing collections despite the program operating at an increasing loss. In January 2000, HHS Secretary Donna Shalala announced that the federal and state child-support enforcement program broke new records in nationwide collections in fiscal year 1999, reaching $15.5 billion, nearly doubling the amount collected in 1992. Yet these figures are not what they appear.

In simple accounting terms, the General Accounting Office, which appears at face value all the official HHS assumptions and data for what is legally owed but unpaid, found that as a percentage of what it claims is owed, collections actually decreased during this period. In fiscal year 1996, collections represented 21 percent of the total amount due but dropped to 17 percent of the total amount due in fiscal year 2000, writes GAO? As a result the amount owed at the end of the period is greater than the amount owed at the beginning of the period.

Thanks Sara for pointing this site out to us.  This doesn't suprise us about Matt.  We are appalled that the man doesn't have the common decency to have taken care of his only child.  Coward!  Matt would walk into Roasatis restaurant and walk right to our table and start drinking our beer.  He never paid for any.  He thought we were all his friends and he would just sit down without asking, like we invited him to do it or something.   WE will point this site out to everyone else that knew matt.  Woo h*o, better buckle it on down as it's gonna be a bumpy ride.  Matt always wore the same black jeans.  day after day, dirty, grimy, dingy,smelly.  What my question is that how do those employers get away with hiding him?  Why would business owners stoop so low as to help a employee hide from his child support and responsibilities.  We will be doing just this.  We will be contacting Jim's Decorating in West Chicago and Grady's painting in Lombard and we will complain.  Laura honey, if there is anything that we are going to do for you, it is to get you some satisfaction out of all this.  This creataure that walked out on you and did'nt help with your life by paying child support will know that we are looking for him.  We will keep his name and workplaces alive on this site. Someone somewhere knows where he is living.   Honey, you are much better without him.  Like Sara said in her post, he sounds so handsome and appealing doesn't he.  Ha ha ha ha.  If there is a woman out there that will have him,  she must be as trashy and cowardly as he is.

Jim's Decorating in West Chicago and Grady's Painting in Lombard, we want answers for Laura.  If you are employing this coward and loser, we will start a boycott of your companies and that goes for anyone else reading this that hires this coward.

Creep, Lier and sex addict

AUTHOR: Sara - (United States of America)

I must tell you, I remember this creep when he lived in Schaumburg, off of Irving Park Road.  At his best he is a drunkin pothead with a superb taste for the sickest of porn.  Matt always thought he fooled the world.  He only fooled himself.  Matt drove an old blue Chevy and the backseat was always full of empty liquor bottles and beer cans.  I don't think you can count the amount of DWI's and arrests this man has had.  Matt will tell you bull stories of working for the Schaumburg Police Department.   His best is the story of him being the director of security for the Marriott hotel in Schaumburg.   Matt was and it sounds as if he still is a loser who lived with everyone he can and mooched off of people.  There was a guy, named Mike.  Mike owned the liquor store off of Wise Rd.  Mike allowed Matt to stay at his house and Matt ended up getting kicked out by Mike because of trying to have sex with and kiss his girlfriend Andrea.  Matt hits on all women, with a special fondness for fatter, big boobed ones.  Matt cheated on his wife.   Matt then went to live with another family in Hanover Park, Jeff.   Of course, this didn't last either as Matt didn't pay his rent, brought in porn and alcohol and was caught by Jeff's son doing the five finger and rosey palm act on himself.  Matt was kicked out and locked out immediately.  He ran up phone bills that he never paid also.  Matt was seeing a married woman at the time and she was dyeing of breast cancer, Cindy.  Matt broke up her marriage right before the poor girl died.  Matt was still married at this time.  Matt called his wife snake because while they were separated, she wanted her child support and he didn't want to pay it. Matt would tell us that this was not his daughter. she had the same hair color of some man his wife was seeing.  We knew that was a lie.  Matt always lived and talked in a dream world. The best he could give himself was living with, mooching off of and cheating others.   Matt started dating a bartender, Kathy while he was still married. We were there when he met her.  He told her he was divorced.  He got drunk and drove her car and totalled it, without any insurance.  That poor single mom lost her vehicle. If I remember correctly, he married her.  Matt delivered pizzas and got a DWI.  He was cheating on his bartender girlfriend and got caught drinking an driving.  His boss bailed him out of jail and he never paid him back.  Matt worked at a liquor store on Barrington Rd.  The guy who owned the liquor store got Matt an attorney.  According to Dino, Matt never paid the attorney either.  

Laura, please be emotionally free of this piece of doggy dooo dooo.  Sounds like after he left Schaumburg he just kept his pace of being a loser.  Sounds like he has employers who helped him hide.  Like you said in your post, you have this site to go on.  His name and employers can never be googled without this coming up.  Oh and Laura, it sounds as if the first poster was another woman he messed with.  From the description, it sounds as though mother nature has caught up with him.  He sounds so handsome and appealing doesn't he?  Your mom did the right thing for you.  If this creep is even still alive, imagine how his life has progressed.  Imagine who else he used and stuck it to.  Imagine the fools out there who are believing his stories.  Just enjoy life and forget he existed.  It looks like he forgot you did.  In your report your mom is named.  Debbie.  Debbie, you sound like one fantastic woman who took great care of her daughter.  You did right it letting this man walk out of her life, even though that had to be very hard on Laura.  You had to know that men like this walk out very easily when it suits their needs.  Matt's needs was not to have the liability of child support or a daughter.  I would say to you that someday, if you can come across him, then be a woman and thank him for the gift of your daughter.  You probably worked your whole life at a great job to take good care of your daughter and yourself.  Matt will never know what greatness he missed out on in Laura's life.  It is truly his loss and at the same time, one you should celebrate.  Useless trash for men.  You can only hope that wherever he is, he will cross the wrong woman and she will do what is right and rid society of him.  Good night and God Bless and thank you for letting me have my story told.  More people than you can imagine have stories of the kind of loser this man is.

Laura , I feel your emptiness

AUTHOR: Mr. P - (U.S.A.)

I feel your emptiness. I have been abandoned by James Willams Templain in 1976. I went to his home to hoping to renew father/son relationship. What he does, it really tears me apart. He walked out the back door in 1990. I wished USA gov would round up dead beat men, and dispose of them by renouncing their citizenship. Then sending them to the frontlines of combat to fight or surrender to the enemy. I am 36 years old, I still have the pain in my heart from the moment he rejected me and my sister. I feel for the innocent children who were born into this world in the name of feeling for sex by deadbeat parents. I feel like all deadbeat parents need to be beaten and castorated so they cannot have other kids. They need to have the word tatoo (Ashamed) written on their forhead and their arms plus other limbs on the body. And most of all Chipped for easy location by the authorities.

I feel for the innocent children who are lost and have to bear the stigma in their lives.

I grew up in an unstable family environment. I am glad I am there to listen to others who are hurting.

Peace to innocent children,

dead beat parents, report to the tatoo parlor and have the world (Deadbeat) written on your limbs and forehead.

AUTHOR: Laura - (U.S.A.)

I am Matthew S Clarke's daughter. I have not seen hide nor hair of this man as the above claimed has stated. No child support, and I was blessed with him abandoning me when I was 9 years old. I sent him an email and was confirmed it was successfully sent...and I did not get a response. I tried to send another one and it was sent back to me that he changed his email!! Why did he change his email? Could it be because he STILL CANNOT FACE REALITY!! I am not surprised. I don't know know why I expected more out of this man. A simple email would have been satisfactory. He is running. He is running on empty. He is a coward and a liar. My only hope is that someday he will face his maker, and will be judged for being such a horrible excuse for a father. I gave him a chance to explain. I gave him a chance to answer for his wrong doing. Big surprise folks...he chose to run and hide. I guess the greatest gift I've been given is that if you google his name...Matthew S comes up under DEADBEAT DAD.

False information

AUTHOR: Matt Clarke - (U.S.A.)

This report was brought to my attention. This information is false. Someone with a demented mind wrote this. I am a good person. I am not in trouble with any governmental agencies. I proudly own a vehicle, a drivers license, registration, insurance. I pay my taxes through payroll deduction. The last ticket I had in the county was in 1998. It was a speeding ticket. I will not respond to anything else, because the report is all false.
