Great catch by Andrew Prokop. From Elliott Broidy’s 2009 allocution, in which he ratted out his fellow co-conspirators to avoid prison time, despite paying more than one million dollars in bribes in exchange for getting $250 million in public money steered into his private equity firm:
Broidy paid over $90,000 to the girlfriend of a high-ranking OSC official from April 2004 through October 2005. The payments were used to cover the girlfriend’s living expenses and rent. Broidy also covered the girlfriend’s hospital bills. Broidy also agreed to pay $5,500 a month to a relative of the girlfriend beginning in October 2003, for a total of $44,000. These payments were concealed through a sham loan agreement between Broidy and the relative.
The coincidences just never end with these guys.
Reminder, until four weeks ago, Broidy was co-chair of the RNC’s finance committee. His co-chair? Michael Cohen.
At this point the show runners are just out of control.
