According to her husband, Democrat lobbyist and Broward School Board whisperer Barbara Miller worked for the troubled cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Two weeks ago, REDBROWARD revealed Miller is the aunt of FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried. Miller and her brother Joe Bankman played pivotal roles in the development of the 2022 FTX Hackathon And Crypto Summit which promised a $1,000,000 prize to Broward school students.

In a February 26, 2022 Facebook post, Miller’s husband, attorney James Fox Miller trumpeted news that Sam Bankman-Fried offered a $25 payment to residents of Ukraine who opened an FTX account. Then, Fox Miller confirmed his wife’s role in her nephew’s company. James Fox Miller wrote:

“Barbara is working for FTX and really enjoying it. Her goal in life has always been to leave the world a little better than she found it. Sam is doing it big-time.”

Two weeks ago, the new CEO of FTX announced the company was halting donations by the FTX Foundation Group amid “questions about legitimacy.” Marketwatch reported, “The senior staff of Bankman-Fried’s philanthropic FTX Future Fund publicly quit Thursday night, saying that the fund could no longer operate or process grants, and that they ‘have fundamental questions about the legitimacy and integrity of the business operations that were funding the FTX Foundation and the Future Fund.’”
