New report from Fox Business reporters Eleanor Terrett and Charlie Gasparino focuses on the role Broward played in the downfall of the FTX Cryptocurrency Exchange. The report details the relationship between FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried and his aunt Barbara Miller, a Broward political consultant. Fox Business spoke to some insiders about Bankman-Fried’s bail.
“Various people who have business dealings with SBF say that Barbara and James Fox Miller could also have easily aided their nephew in making his $250 million bond given their significant wealth. FOX Business has not been able to confirm the matter.”
Perhaps Barbara and Uncle Jimmy can answer this matter on their blog?

“FTX scandal rocks Florida school district.” LOL! You’ve just got to love the histrionics of the media at times. Nothing like click bait to try and catch peoples attention. After all, don’t we all just love a good car wreck with multiple deaths and dismemberments? I mean really Tom. I get it, it’s not your headline its Fox News. But, you’ve now adopted it. Then, of course, much of the article doesn’t even focus on any ties to Broward but, instead, the whole seeming Ponzi scheme that it appears that FTX might have been. But, why should it, as by it’s own admission any tie to Broward is the equivalent of a mole hill. And, no, the Trustee is not going to try and claw back $15K scholarships for a projected $8 billion scheme. If any one should be worried at an individual level it should be the many wealthy celebrity circus barkers that lent their credibility to a fraud. And, at the same time Tom, while you try desperately to pin Barbara Miller into SBF’s house of cards, we are still left with solid evidence of nothing still. Hell, even the lengthy Fox piece buries well into its muckraking article the following tidbit: “There’s no indication that Fox Miller or his wife are involved in any of the allegations against SBF. ” What? Pages in they then choose to drop that in? Hmmm! And, I’m also trying to figure out how family relatives might choose to bail out their relationship is also somehow news? I’m pretty sure they are the bailors of choice in virtually every bail situation assuming the alleged perp doesn’t have sufficient funds/assets. So, again, where’s the story Tom? But, keep trying. At some point, yep, maybe. PS: Also, for those readers with less knowledge of these Ponzi scheme type situations I draw your attention to Wikipedia and “List of Ponzi Schemes.” You’ll quickly see that there is little new here. These schemes have existed for more than 150 years. Madoff’s at $20 bil being the seemingly icing on the cake so far when it comes to the audacity of white collar criminals. Just add FTX to the list (as Wikipedia already has). PSS: they also tend to thrive in the financial sector when the latest big investment vehicle, like crypto, hits the streets and both knowledgeable and much less so investors foolishly throw their hard earned money at it.
Every time there is a Barbara Miller story “baby sage” appears. It’s someone close to BM and/or JFM. No one else could defend them, I find it rather amusing that JFM attacks George Santos and calls for his removal on his FB page when BM managed a campaign for a candidate who actually was not qualified to run.
Well, “unconvinced” maybe it’s because I actually like to see stories with real substance that also has real evidence of the type of aspersions the story seeks to make. So far, Tom’s dropped in a number of FTX-related stories which fail to do much more than cast aspersions with little evidence behind it. Even this latest piece is based entirely around a Fox News story that itself concedes “There’s no indication that Fox Miller or his wife are involved in any of the allegations against SBF.” Frankly, I thankfully don’t know BM or JFM or SBF or was foolish enough to invest in FTX. That said, if stories are going to continuously cast aspersions with no hard evidence to support those, then, yes, I unlike apparently you, have no problem calling out those stories for what they are. But, who knows, maybe at some point, Tom will finally have some hard evidence to report on and we’ll get beyond guilt-by-association reporting. And, yes, George Santos, or whoever he actually is, is sadly a reflection of just how low American politics as fallen and he should not be in office and, very likely, may end up with prison time depending on what the investigation into his finances definitively shows.
Basically, what boomerbabysage said.
And, to unconvinced, I, also add a comment when our Red Broward insists on screaming headlines over a BIG nothing story!
