1/Today add'l names were released.

When I originally found the info here ⬇️ it was just a weird piece. It's still weird, but fits better now that we know Joe Ellicott was served a subpoena by the grand jury.
Ellicott & Greenberg go way back. Surprisingly, Pirozzolo too.
2/Ellicott's sports radio show co-host looks to be part of the socialites in Orlando.

• Baumann named Top 10 Influentials in Orlando along side #JasonPirozzolo

• Red Carpet Monday's hosted by Michelle Hiresh (her dad owns the nightclub GILT)

• Seem to be friends. (Invites)

5/Now let's get weird.
#JoelGreenberg bestowed $3.5mil more than a dozen of outside consultants & new employees, including a lawyer married to his aunt while Greenberg was growing up & 3 of his groomsmen. Together have been paid $640,000 so far (Oct2019).
•2 outside lawyers
•2 outside accounting firms
•2 “land consulting" firms, including one owned by longtime Republican power player Jim Stelling.

•4 others Greenberg "couldn't find".

•He’s planning to hand $20,000 to a “cultural consulting” company.
7/Unpacking where the money has gone.

•2 groomsmen
•Rick Sierra, former uncle by marriage
•Public Affairs Director Michelle Ertel, wife of short-lived FL Secretary of State #MikeErtel
8/The biggest financial winner in Greenberg’s spending spree was Praetorian Integrated Services, owned by Republican operative & campaign consultant Michael Shirley, whom Greenberg paid $6,000 to help him defeat Valdes.
9/Greenberg has doled out roughly $678,000 to Praetorian, more than half in $12,500 monthly chunks, for consulting on the tax collector’s budget, helping with strategic planning and providing technological review and advice. floridapolitics.com/archives/19088…
10/ Shirley, Greenberg, Maloy, and Ertel seem to have started a nonprofit group out of the Tax Collector's Office.

Later, they removed #MikeErtel and added David Johnson.

Seminole County Constitutional Officers Association, Inc.
11/Ernest Falco (also a private pilot)
2018, he opened Kona Poké, a restaurant in Lake Mary.
E3 Ventures LLC, owned by Greenberg’s friend & business partner Falco, collected nearly $500k in total, including through a subsidiary.
12/The second firm, Aries, did website modernization and rebranding. It’s owned by Jason Ross, whom Greenberg paid $6,500 for campaign work. The company owned by Ross, one of Greenberg’s friends and also a wedding guest, cashed in for more than $263,000 since January 2017.
13/Sierra, who was married to Greenberg’s aunt until 2015, has been paid about $315,640 since July 2017, overlapping with both the other lawyers.
Total: More than $687,000 over two years.

Why in the world does a tax collector need three attorneys?
14/We'll circle back to Red Carpet Promotions now w/Keith Ingersoll. Ingersoll Investments II-partner
Greenberg hired KI Consulting, a bus partner of Falco’s, for $48k to “facilitate transition,” “evaluate strategy” & recommend investments. Received $6k/mo from Mar 2017-Oct 2017.
15/So, let’s note only that his three groomsmen:
🔸Ashley Kohler, chief information officer
🔸Joseph “Big Joe” Ellicott, assistant deputy tax collector
🔸Tomlinson have drawn paychecks totaling more than $640,000.

1/ 🔹️NEW🔹️
The Shock Jock Texts That Could Be Critical in the #MattGaetz Probe

If #JoelGreenberg was Gaetz’s wingman, #JoeEllicott was Greenberg’s right-hand man. And texts between Greenberg & Ellicott show an attempt to cover up sex w/a minor. archive.is/2021.05.21-142… ImageImageImageImage
2/Greenberg was already under investigation when he had a private exchange w/his former sports radio co-host “Big Joe” Ellicott. In that exchange, on Signal, Ellicott expressed fear that others in their group of friends faced legal jeopardy for having sex w/a 17-year-old girl. ImageImageImage
3/Ellicott wrote a mutual friend, a woman prominent in Greenberg‘s Venmo, “knew [minor] was underage the whole time, had sex w/her & both went [to] see other guys.” and that “for other guys she brought __ along to see, that could be trafficking,” using a nickname. #Vintage99 ImageImageImage

Preparing for some time away? Cut a deal? 🤔
@MNobbiee "I read somewhere that Gaetz is also tied to the ghost candidate scandal that happened in south Florida this past election. Dirty hands in everything."

1/Greenberg's victim atty:
“Dorworth has a history of hiring local provocateur,” referring to blogger #JacobEngels. Email cited an unrelated defamation suit against Engels-which the atty claimed #ChrisDorworth was the financier of the alleged defamation. By @WFTV h/t @RogerWants
2/ #MattGaetz defended Engels, and like a good the Wingman Greenberg was, he amplified his defense.
3/Engels runs a publication called Central Florida Post. He made FB Live posts about Beute days before Greenberg’s arrest. (See ⬇️ for an into to #JacobEngels)
