A political fund-raiser turned ponzi-schemer wanted by the Feds had dinner with a bevy of top-notch Democrat lawmakers, including US President Barack Obama, the night before he was arrested by authorities.
Stone later wrote about the event on his blog.
While working as the head of Florida’s most politically-powerful law firm, Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler, Scott Rothstein stole US $1 billion from investors in South Florida and New York. Rothstein’s fraud was exposed while he was shuttling between the two cities. The fraudster then went on the lamb to Morocco with the Feds in hot pursuit, only to return a few weeks later to face the music.
On the very night before he fled the country, Rothstein supt at the table of one Barack Obama at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida. Rothstein, who raised vast amounts of money for Obama’s political rival John McCain, paid US $100,000 to rub elbows with the President, as well as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senator Chuck Schumer, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and Senator Bill Nelson.
Ponzi Schemer Rothstein attended the three-star reception and even had his picture taken with President Obama twice, and the other politicians mentioned. Stone also reports that Rothstein gave Reid the maximum donation of US $9,600.
Stone is certain of the report, which he got from two people who attended the dinner. Pictures and video of Ponzi Schemer Rothstein hob-nobbing with the political big-wigs has not yet surfaced.
Rothstein has told a judge he will plead guilty to the charges against him.
