Federal jury in Tallahassee convicted J.T. Burnette of one count Extortion Under Color of Official Right, two counts Honest Services Fraud by Bribery, one count Interstate Commerce Facilities to Promote Bribery & one count Making False Statements to a Federal Officer. #Trulieve ImageImage
Burnette described his now wife to undercover FBI agents as "one of the most powerful political people out there." And "if you’re f***** w/the wrong side of Kim Rivers, it’s like punching somebody in the f*****...it’s like punching a gorilla!"

JT Burnette told FBI agents he helped Florida lawmaker box out competition in #medicalmarijuana law

While on the stand in his own defense, Burnette tells prosecutors recorded conversations were just bravado /1
A conversation between Tallahassee businessman John "J.T." Burnette and undercover FBI agents recorded five years ago seems to confirm what some Florida politicos and marijuana lobbyists have been saying for years. /2
That former state Rep. #HalseyBeshears, R-Monticello, stacked the deck in favor of an application his brother and the spouse of his childhood friend, Burnette, had submitted to the state for one of five licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana. /3

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

HI - Question here

Are we curious at all about this Liberate Florida PAC & it's potential #MedicalMarijuana connections? Because maybe we should be curious about that.
@Jason_Garcia @JeffWeinerOS @LeaLovesUSA ImageImage
Particularly because:

Liberate Florida PAC, run by Andrea Roca signed paperwork on 06/29/2020, and was received on 07/06/2020 & created.

While Liberate Florida, Inc. was effective w/Corp Div on 07/06/2020
and
LiberateGLV, Inc. was set up 06/08/2020

Or possibly that #AMMPA, the co. that #JasonPirozzolo started, (when his friends in legis wrote a last min amendment to require an MD so he could start AMMPA) had #liberatewpb #liberatefl at Cannabis Conference in Miami w/#MattGaetz? or #BrianMast & celebrating the legis? ImageImageImageImage

Jason Pirozzolo is buddies with Bermann. Standby for more.
#JasonPirozzolo discusses #MattGaetz and his push for legislation regarding research and #medicalmarijuana. Funny considering the Libertarian disdain for research.

1/ John Morgan
18 JAN 2019
Duh... I don't know why my brain failed to put these together.

During DeSantis’ post-election transition period, Gaetz served as an emissary to Morgan, Florida’s self-described “pot daddy,” keeping him abreast of the governor-elect’s thinking.
2/ Morgan has invested millions in marijuana-related businesses, including banks catering to the industry, licensees & Weedapps, a smart phone dir of cannabis doctors & retailers. also raising $200mil for a hedge fund concentrating on the industry. tampabay.com/florida-politi…
3/Less than 24hrs before the FL Legislature passed the state’s first medical marijuana law in May 2014, #MattGaetz & other members of the state House rewrote the bill to limit who would be able to get in on the ground floor of what has since become a billion-dollar business.
