Scott Rothstein: "I am Large, I Contain Multitudes" (I'm Paraphrasing)



Oy I'm sick to death of this story but the hits just keep on coming:
The convicted con man said he tried to stop his employees from selling marijuana, but that he had no problem with prostitutes gallivanting around the Las Olas Boulevard offices of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler — because he felt protected on that front.

“The police also were sleeping with my escorts,” Rothstein said. “Broward Sheriff’s Office, Fort Lauderdale Police Department weren’t going to bother me, okay, I could have had all the escorts I wanted.”

Then there were the organized-crime figures who would pop in to visit, Rothstein said.
“Mob guys, law enforcement, even judges from time to time, not federal judges, would show up,” he said.
 So prostitutes and mobsters are fine, but lawyers dealing weed -- that's where Scott draws the line:
While Rothstein condoned recreational, weekend marijuana use, he said he had to worry about RRA employees using marijuana in the office and parking garage: He was afraid it would draw law-enforcement attention.

He said some law partners couldn’t come to work without first smoking pot. Some employees were reportedly selling it as well.

“You don’t want to have marijuana dealing from the middle of your law office because I was running a giant Ponzi scheme out of there,” Rothstein said.
Exactly -- just what kind of joint do you think he's running?

  1. It is clear that he is still very proud of what he accomplished. Imagine a lawyer who doesn't throw up on himself when he admits that he forged judges' signatures on documents.
    Now here is a guy who deserves the death penalty! How long will it take the rest of us to get teh stench off?

  3. It is interesting to go back in time and compare what Rosenfeldt tried to do then with what we know now. Kendall actually pitched the theory that Rothstein was a "lone gunmen" whose underlings were hard working lawyers oblivious to his crimes. The video is so preposterous it makes me feel sorry for Kendall. How could he have allowed himself to be duped?
