From Britney Spears to political rivals, #JoelGreenberg searched the names on confidential database
from @Jason_Garcia & @martinecomas

Article provides a great opportunity for a crash course on the Greenberg/Gaetz #OrlandoMafia. /1
Original Indictment:
While I don't know that I'd go as far as to say all these were nefarious, there are some that these journalist name here that suggest at times Greenberg certainly used his access to the database to advance his or his ally's positions. /2
“I am stunned that he did that,” said Seminole Commissioner Bob Dallari after learning that Greenberg in April 2018 looked up info of his 91yo father, Albert Dallari & his mother, who died >10y ago. “I don’t get why he would do that." #RiverCross /3

Incredible reporting out of @orlandosentinel, again!

THIS story is IMPORTANT!
By @Jason_Garcia & Annie Martin

Behind the scenes, #JoelGreenberg told others in local politics he was orchestrating Sheppard’s campaign. He claimed to be using Sheppard to gain “control” OCSO. /1 Image
“I do happen to have the only democrat on the ballot for the Orange County sheriff office race [sic],” Greenberg wrote to another Seminole (R), who provided a copy of the message. Greenberg sent the message about 48 hours before Sheppard finally paid his qualifying fee. /2 ImageImage

When I spoke w/@Lopez4Sheriff I asked him; During your campaign did you have any rumors, or smear attacks to face?

I asked b/c I suspect Lopez was seen as formidable threat to opponents. #MikeShirley #JoelGreenberg needed a Constitutional Officer on their team./1 @JeffWeinerOS
He thought back & realized he had. At the time he understood it coming from "far-left".
The rumor?

Lopez, who's in-laws are Chilean, faced w/the rumor that he was anti-immigrant.
Sound familiar?

Lopez offered to debate the group & quickly demonstrated they had been misled./2
Did #JacobEngls or another political operative working in the shadows for Greenberg & Shirley use on of their many alt-accts to intentionally mislead voters who would otherwise would have voted for Joe?

Did #MikeShirley push to run Lopez's campaign to sabotage it from inside?/3

1/Joe Lopez served over 3 decades in the FL HWY Patrol. After he retired, he was still looking to serve his community, he decided to run for the 2018 Orange County Sheriff position. At the time, it was a 2 candidate race between him & former Orlando Police Chief, John Mina.
2/Lopez was introduced through someone he knew to #JacobEngels. The mutual associate presented to Lopez an opportunity to get his name out in the press as a viable candidate. Being a novis politician, he accepted the offer to do an exclusive interview with Engels.
3/@Lopez4Sheriff understood the associates connection to Jacob Engels to be that they broke the Ashley Madison story together some years back. Lopez, being someone who believes in government accountability at the time took that as a noble cause.

NEW from @orlandosentinel
🤓 They're getting warmer.

Greenberg purchased a bldg for $810k in public cash—hours after a recently formed co. bought it for $680k.
Shooters Orlando Inc. formed a few mos earlier by a former biz. partner of #KeithIngersoll |1 orlandosentinel.com/news/seminole-…
Now, Ingersoll & Ellicott have reportedly become figures in the sprawling criminal case that sparked Greenberg’s downfall. Federal investigators have targeted other players in Central FL politics & taken an interest in questionable contracts the former tax collector gave out.|2
Ellicott “could emerge as a key witness” in the case with information about potential sex trafficking offenses “damning to others beyond Greenberg.”|3
