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
A spreadsheet of Greenberg’s more-than-700 name searches, some of which he looked up more than once, was obtained by the Florida Center for Gov Accountability, a government watchdog group.

Hope they are circling back to this no rarely discussed issue /4
Greenberg awaits sentencing Nov 18. Plead guilty to; sex trafficking-child, identity theft, stalking, wire fraud & conspiracy to bribe a public official. Originally faced 33 federal charges, prosecutors dropped 27 counts in return for him cooperating. /5
In Greenberg’s plea deal, he admitted to using the system to “investigate his sexual partners,” incl the 17yo girl & victim-sex trafficking count. He claimed he looked the girl up thru DAVID in Sept 2017 “b/c he had reason to believe” she was underage. /6
Others he searched for incl retired Orange County Sheriff Lt. Hopkins, who ran for Seminole sheriff last yr against Dennis Lemma; former (D) gubernatorial candidate Chris King; & former (D) candidate Tax Collector & radio personality Lynn “Moira” Dictor./7
Greenberg also delved into the private info of family members including, wife, Abby Greenberg; mother, Susan Greenberg; brother Martin Greenberg & former uncle #RickSierra, who also worked under Joel Greenberg as the attorney for Tax Collector’s Office. /8
Greenberg pried into two of the candidates who ran for Orange County sheriff in 2018: Darryl Sheppard and Joe Lopez, both of whom lost to John Mina. /9
Behind the scenes, Greenberg told others in local politics that he was behind Sheppard’s campaign, even claiming to one associate that he would “control” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office once Sheppard was elected. /10
Greenberg’s top political advisors & consultant #MikeShirley, who got a lucrative contract — ran #JoeLopez’s campaign. Lopez believes that Shirley & Greenberg were intentionally sabotaging his campaign in hopes of creating a path for Sheppard./11
Informed Tues he was on the list @JoeLope00134755 retired FL Hwy Patrol chief, called Greenberg’s “trail of nefarious acts” during his time in office “disturbing & alarming. These are the types of people I used to put in jail." /12
Greenberg also looked up #MeganZalonka, who was a #MatGaetz escort.
Greenberg gave Zalonka a $3,500/mo no-work contract.
Zalonka also worked at #AMMPA American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association, owned by Orlando hand doctor #JasonPirozzolo./13
#JasonPirozzolo is also swept up in the trafficking & corruption probe because of a trip to The #BahamasTrip Pirozzolo took with Gaetz, former state Rep. #HalseyBeshears & several young women. /14
Ron DeSantis is quite familiar with #JasonPirozzolo, as he was a major campaign fundraiser for DeSantis and even flew him around in his private plane for campaign events, donated as "in-kind" to #FriendsRonDeSantis /15
Pirozzolo fundraised for many of the #OrlandoMafia members.
DeSantis also appointed to the Orlando Airport Board Jason Pirozzolo who Halsey Beshears & Matt Gaetz & Clay Ingram were listed as references. /16
#JasonPirozzolo was also a networker of sorts, connecting the powerful to the capable and wealthy. #PayToPlay /17
He touted his connections, and even at times seems to have attempted to sell access to his political buddies like #MattGaetz. /18
The entire medical marijuana industry in Florida was crafted & corrupted by all of these same people; Pirozzolo, Gaetz, Stone, DeSantis, Beshears, #Trulieve, #BalladPartners, list goes on & on.
And yes, #NikkiFried as well as her fiance, owner #Surterra/19
#JasonPirozzolo is who ties up the medical marijuana monopoly in Florida the Republican legislature created for friends & themselves.
As I continue to reiterate; #AllRoadsLeadToStone

#AMMPA Conference with Matt Gaetz & Stone's errand boy #JacobEngels /20
The medical marijuana industry, along with the #blockchain story out of the Greenberg scandal of course lead us to Israel, DeSantis & the curious trip which the Adelson's attended. /21
Megadonors, lobbyists & political operatives all collide in the Greenberg story that the public focuses much attention on the sex-trafficking when the public corruption & campaign/election fraud & power grabs deserve more sunlight. #BallardPartners /23
Additionally, Pirozzolo ran around in some of the same crowds that #KeithIngersoll, #BigJoeEllicott & others wrapped up in this story. /24
#KeithIngersoll in my opinion provides one of the biggest opportunities for #moneylaundering /25
Belarus, Russia, Ron DeSantis, Matt Gaetz, Keith Ingersoll - you name it - its connected.

I have this thread here I suggest you take a look at, as well as an excellent piece by @ScottMStedman /26

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 Image
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
