I guess sleazy people like to associate with one another. I wonder why I'm not surprised.

Although Levin claims he knew nothing about Rothstein's ponzi scheme it seems he funneled vast amounts of money into it. My guess is he saw the "empire" falling and decided to pretend to be just another duped investor.

Here's the article.

Sun Sentinel Article

Here's the link to Dinger's article below.

Won't this:
"One Levin company operated as Classic Motor Carriages in Miami-Dade. Hundreds of consumer complaints were filed with the state and the company went out of business in 1995. Four years later, the company pleaded guilty to a federal charge alleging an 11-year scheme to defraud customers and was ordered to pay $2.5 million in restitution."
get the Sun Sentinel sued?

Hey Vince, I'm not gonna bad mouth my own Governor. At least he found out, gave the money to charity. He should have put it into a trust fund for the victims of the ponzi scheme. This schit is circulating, this dude ain't even from Louisiana, and here he donates $30,000 hard cash. Should have raised flags from the beginning, but todays politicians are such whores when it comes to advertising money. Even though we have a reputation for crooked politics, the disease spreads all across the country. And for every sleazy bastard you put away a new one is born everyday. notpoliticalolnolan.
