Breaking: FBI Investigating Far Left Lib & Obama Chair Wexler For Fraud
Far Left Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL) and Barack Obama Florida campaign chairman has allegedly filed 25 amended FEC reports in the days immediately following Bill O’Reilly busting him in front of his Maryland home on camera.
Robert Wexler’s Republican opponent Edward Lynch has a compelling argument that there is much more to this story that needs to be revealed. Wexler’s campaign allegedly submitted 25 amended FEC reports between 7/23/08 (one day after O’Reilly busted him) and 7/30/08.
National Review reported the news this morning:
According to a website set up by Lynch’s campaign, Wexler is in engaged in campaign-finance schemes that might amount to money laundering. Lynch even claims that the FBI is investigating. A spokesman for the FBI’s Miami field office told National Review Online they had “no comment.”
Ben Graber, an independent Democrat running a serious candidacy against Wexler and Lynch, has filed his own criminal complaint seeking an investigation.
Lynch’s accusations are as follows. Beginning July 23 — the day after Fox broke the news about the Democratic candidate’s questionable residency — and ending July 30, the Wexler campaign amended 25 Federal Election Commission reports going back to 2001. The amendments removed references to “Newbridge Securities” as a corporation from which the campaign had received funds, replacing Newbridge with a variety of different companies.
Several of the new companies, such as Capital Gains Consultants, Inc., were not in business at the time Wexler’s amended FEC report claims the funds were paid, according to documents Lynch provides. On July 25, in the midst of the Wexler campaign’s revisions to its old filings, Newbridge Securities and its owners were brought up on charges by the Securities and Exchange Comission for securities violations.
…Wexler’s campaign told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that accusations the campaign may be connected to securities fraud are “completely silly and downright libelous.”
There’s no proof of wrongdoing. But in the space of a week in July, Wexler was exposed as fudging details on his residency status; his campaign amended F.E.C. filings to remove references to Newbridge; two days after beginning to amend the reports, the SEC announced it was investigating Newbridge; and shortly thereafter the campaign backed out of a relatively sizable investment overseen by the brother of Newbridge’s president…
The story has yet to gain much traction or prompt further investigation. Lynch has a theory on why the major press organ in Wexler’s district, the Palm Beach Post, hasn’t aggressively pursued the story. When Lynch delivered the story about Wexler’s suspect residency to Fox News, Bill O’Reilly went after the Post and its editor, Randy Schultz, accusing them of pro-Wexler bias.
Even putting aside allegations of money laundering, the residency issues are a serious matter that has yet to be resolved. It’s likely that law enforcement will not investigate the matter in earnest until November 5, to avoid the appearance of interfering with the election. So the question is, will Democratic leaders of the “most ethical congress ever” take proactive measures to address the gathering clouds of scandal around Wexler before it’s too late?
