Kim Rothstein To Seek "Pre-Ponzi" Assets

So says Brittany Wallman here.

Plus Kim spills the beans of her life story to Stormin' Norman here.

Kim's attorney Scott Saidel explains the "pre-Ponzi assets" game plan:
Kim Rothstein, wife of Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein, will seek half of whatever assets they owned before the illegal investment scam began, her lawyer Scott Saidel said. Though they wed well into the Rothstein Ponzi, Saidel said he "gifted'' some assets to her that he'd acquired before that.

"She does have a claim to anything pre-Ponzi,'' he said last week.

A certain smart Guest Blogger suggests this is really dumb, as it will inject Kimmie into the forfeiture and criminal proceedings, where she will be fighting to establish when exactly the Ponzi scheme began and that the "gifts" were not purchased with dirty money.

Does anyone think this is a good idea?

Oh boy I'm getting flashbacks again......

Re: Formal Florida Bar Complaint against Ellyn Setnor Bogdanoff, FL Bar #653731

Dear Mr. Marvin:

This is a formal sworn Florida Bar complaint against the above lawyer, who happens to be the sister-in-law of Florida Bar President Jesse Diner. In that regard, please read the below news article:
UPDATED: Florida Bar Prez' Sister-in-Law Got Big Bucks From Rothstein
By Bob Norman

Mr. Diner, as you know, has been running around the state telling anyone who will listen—if not believe him—that The Florida Bar will leave no stone unturned to get to the bottom of the corruption that Scott Rothstein was sewing.

Fine, this Bar complaint I am filing arises out of what must be the presumption by any rational individual that Scott Rothstein was giving money to politicians for a purpose—for the purpose of improperly influencing governmental decisions. The Bar, by virtue of the fact that Ms. Bogdanoff is a lawyer, must be investigated to determine if there was every any quid pro quo transaction between her and her financial benefactors at the Rothstein firm.

I look forward to a full investigation by The Florida Bar. I demand it, and in doing so I remind you that The Bar is violating the law by refusing to inform me if it has any ethics complaints against Rothstein that were dismissed before the Ponzi scandal broke.


Signed, John B. Thompson, February 2, 2010
