Convicted Ponzi schemer Rothstein snags Crist with charge of 'quid pro quo'

Convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein made his first appearance in court yesterday and he unloaded on just about everyone — from Florida’s former governor to judges, bankers, police officers and gangsters.

Story here from Julie K. Brown. Excerpted here:

He detailed how he got around federal campaign finance laws, enlisting members of the firm to contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to politicians, including former Gov. Charlie Crist. He claimed Crist appointed him to the Judicial Nominating Committee as part of a “quid pro quo” for helping to bankroll his campaign. Crist has said he returned Rothstein’s money after learning it was dirty.

The current governor stole millions from Medicare. Ed of Story

The democrat primary voters have repeatedly asked that a new candidate be found to replace the scumbag crist who they know will have his inevitable campaign implosion seen in previous campaigns. This type of quid pro quo behavior with the lowest lifes in society is exactly the type of behavior that turns off voters and continuing to push this candidate on democrat primary voters demonstrates why this once dominant florida party has found itself as an also ran.

Mrs. Ed Jenkins

Ed, time to refill your prescription, honey.

Ed Jr.

Mom,

Daddy is not waering his pants again.

Mark

Ed Jenkins you are the scumbag!

Iona

Wow, this is going to leave a mark!

Mrs. Ed Jenkins

Ed,Jr.: Don't embarrass the family. Like father like son.

Pablo you immature prick, no one is entertained by your childish name changing and fake posting. They might do this type of crap in the communist country you come from but we don't tolerate it here so get back on your raft and get back to Castro or Hugo you loser.

Pablo

Dear Dummy,

I am not posting these comments, so your silly and demented comments are misdirected. Believe it or not, there are other readers that post comments here. You're becoming delusional.

Oh, I forgot to mention that CVS called and your meds are ready for pickup.

Ed Jr.

Pablo,

You are right D is misdirected. In Communist countries there is no freedom of speech.

Mom,

You and Dad made me this way.

D

What a surprise, the prick pablo has been posting under fake names on an article and when he is called on it he magically appears back immediately, no coincidence there. Skipping school today raft boy? Fidel and Hugo wouldn't be happy that your indoctrination is being interrupted. Let mommy have the computer back.

Pablo

Dear Dumbo,

You've become very boring and repetitive. And still very delusional. Don't you have any new material?

Now don't forget to pick up your meds at CVS.
