Who is The Queen Of Broward?


Overlooked in Sun Sentinel story about Tamarac corruption was this quote from a top prosecutor in Mike Satz’s office:

“Tim Donnelly, the prosecutor in charge of the state’s corruption investigations, said that it’s sometimes necessary to subpoena potential witnesses and give them immunity.

‘Because, as a prosecutor you are always pursuing the most culpable criminal but you have to have witnesses and evidence in order to convict. Without them, you have no case,’ Donnelly said. ‘I think the higher good is to get Lady Macbeth, rather than throw some spineless lackey in jail.’ ”

Perhaps we’re reading too much into it, but notice he said Queen. He didn’t refer to a King, or Capone or Boss Tweed. Donnelly used a female reference. Is there a Queen at the heart of Broward’s corruption?
