RPOF settles Rothstein mess
The Republican Party of Florida released this press statement this morning:
The RPOF Board voted unanimously to approve the proposed settlement with the bankruptcy trustee for the Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler Law Firm. The Party will pay $75,000 to the trustee. Under bankruptcy laws, the claims made by the trustee were based on wrongful intent by the debtor, not the Republican Party, and the return of funds by the Party does not in any way indicate wrongdoing by the RPOF. Other organizations that have paid back funds in this bankruptcy lawsuit are the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital ($1 million), the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Fraternal Order of Police, and others.
