Only in Broward. Richard Rubin, husband of former Broward County Commissioner Diana Wasserman Rubin has been charged with tax evasion. FYI, Wasserman Rubin is a DEMOCRAT. As usual, Bob Norman of The Daily Pulp has the details:
“Rubin was hit with federal tax evasion charges for allegedly failing to report $100,000 in fees he received from another municipality, the Town of Davie, for a land deal he brokered back in 2004, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Rubin also wrote a grant to provide funding for the purchase of the land, which was made up of a bird sanctuary known as Sunny Lakes.
He has had a habit of cashing in on his wife’s political connections for some time. Remember that several years ago, he was hired by lobbyist George Platt’s firm, Shutts and Bowen, while the firm was lobbying his wife. He raked in huge amounts of cash for writing grants for the Town of Southwest Ranches while his wife was voting to approve them with county money from the parks bond. “
