    The plan that Jared "The Subway Guy" Fogle announced in 2008 was like so many things about him: big, inspirational and, it would turn out, false.

    A top celebrity spokesman worth $15 million, Fogle said he wanted to promote more than sandwiches. His non-profit foundation would distribute $2 million to schools and community organizations to fight the condition that had plagued Fogle for years, childhood obesity.

    But the Jared Foundation has not issued a single grant, records show.

    From 2009 through 2013, the foundation spent just $73,000 a year on average. Sixty percent of the money went to the executive director's salary, and 26% is unaccounted for, according to foundation tax records.

    The foundation also hasn't paid the State of Indiana a $5 annual registration fee since 2008, the year the Jared Fogle Healthy Lifestyle Nationwide School Grant Program was supposed to begin. Delinquency notices were ignored. In 2012, the Indiana Secretary of State dissolved the foundation, though the IRS still recognizes it.

    "If Jared was really interested in helping children through his foundation, he could have gotten more money," said Daniel Borochoff, president of CharityWatch, which analyzes and rates charities. "As with a lot of celebrities, the charity appears to be more about image-enhancement than charitable deeds."

    Fogle, who turns 38 on Sunday, is now largely confined to his 13-room mini-mansion outside Indianapolis awaiting sentencing on charges of receiving and distributing child pornography and having sex with minors. His second wife, with whom Fogle has two preschool-age children, has started divorce proceedings. His sartorial signature is no longer a pair of size-60 blue jeans but a GPS monitor that tracks his movements outside the house.

    "I don't think he's going anywhere," federal prosecutor Steven DeBrota said in announcing a plea deal Wednesday that will result in a prison sentence of five to 12½ years.

    GQ is never going to knock on my door to be on their cover,but I always thought Jared should have been locked up just for being so creepy looking.

    He's wearing an ankle monitor and will be in prison soon enough.

    It's really incredible to me how people are so good at fucking up a good thing.

    But it's more incredible to me that his buddy got busted for kiddie porn and Fogle didn't immediately destroy all of his computers and anything which might put him in prison. It's like allowing a bank robber to store the money in your freezer.

    I don't want him to get away with anything, but don't we all know that it takes computer experts no time at all to see what we've been doing on the Internet?

    It seems most charities are scams. You really have to do your homework before donating.
