The New York Post is the latest national media outlet seeking answers about Broward’s connection to the FTX Cryptocurrency Exchange meltdown. On Sunday, the NY Post delved into the ties between FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) and his aunt, Broward Democrat consultant Barbara Miller. Last November, REDBROWARD was the first outlet to expose Barbara Miller’s employment with FTX. Since our initial report, outlets such as Reuters, The New York Times and Fox Business have questioned the exact role Miller had with FTX and her nephew.
Barbara Miller enlisted the help of Broward School Board member Debra Hixon with the staging of the FTX Hackathon and Crypto Summit last March. SBF’s uncle, James Fox Miller, touted his wife’s role with the hackathon.
James Fox Miller, an attorney, also bragged about his lifelong friend and law partner David Boies. Last November, REDBROWARD raised questions about Boies suing FTX and its celebrity spokespersons in behalf of creditors. Last week. REDBROWARD reported Barbara Miller was listed as an FTX creditor in court documents.
On Sunday, the NY post wrote, “Uncle Jimmy wrote on his Facebook page about the getaway describing it as ‘our 35th . . . It is really interesting watching the younger generations start to bond. It is unlikely they will ever have the kind of friendship David Boies and I have forged over 60 plus years. It is unique. We started these trips in the hopes that our children and grandchildren could learn what true friendship is all about.’”
The NY Post also raised questions about Barbara Miller’s role in securing a bond for SBF’s release from jail.
“Interesting, because so close are Fox Miller and Barbara Miller to SBF that people involved in the FTX imbroglio say the couple may have been the yet-to-be named sources of his bond money that allows him to remain under house arrest,” NY Post reporter Charles Gasparino wrote. “Full disclosure: I could not confirm those rumors in part because the Millers haven’t returned numerous emails and calls.”
Those questions may be answered this week.
Oh, well, if that esteemed news source, the New York Post (which most of us would very occasionally purchase in NYC to read on the subway because you could easily get through it in 10-15 minutes as it was primarily only good for its sports page and occasionally its entertainment page(s) and then trash it) is now in the thick of this perpetually “breaking” story then there has to be something to it! LOL!!!!

I can always count on baby sage to comment on Barbara Miller stories. Hmmm, could this be Barbara Miller herself or one of her sycophants?!

Keep your day job “unconvinced” as private eye certainly is not in your future. I’m real and personally don’t know Barbara Miller or anyone else associated with FTX and largely could care less what their ultimate fates are. But I, apparently unlike you, still appreciate true objective news reporting, as little of that that still exists today (having grown up in a family with nearly 40 years of news reporting in it both at a local and national level), and not that based on unproven guilt-by-association conjecture and, so far, that’s pretty much all Tom’s stories on this have been, especially with respect to ties to Broward County and anything allegedly nefarious arising from the same. Turning to the NY Post as some reputable herald of reliable news is also laughable. PS: If you truly follow Red Broward you’d also know that I regularly respond to Tom’s pieces well beyond this tale of woe so I’m no one’s sycophant…just a regular thorn in Tom’s Red side.
Okay, Tom. I get it. You don’t like Barbara Miller. or her husband.
Just put a hold on this stuff unless, or until, there is some NEWS, please.
It is the job of the free press to investigate, or air things, that they find intriguing.
You’ve already given us everything that’s available out there. So wait, please.
Wishful thinking Patti. There’s an agenda after all.
