Fitzroy Salesman Trial: Let's Talk About Sex

In addition to talking about how to get government jobs in corrupt Broward County, Fitzroy Salesman and the undercover agents spoke of plane mishaps, parking tickets, driving school, sex, and a "camel toe contest" between beauty pageant contestants (including Miss Canada), according to trial testimony yesterday.

One of Salesman's defense attorneys, Daniel Aaronson, hammered away at the small talk yesterday as he cross-examined FBI agent Patrick Wren, who went undercover in the investigation as a construction contractor looking for government business.

"He would joke about his sex life," Wren told Aaronson about Salesman.

"You would joke about your own sex lives?" Aaronson asked Wren.

"There was a lot of banter," Wren said.

"Were there times you and [undercover FBI operative Patrick Lochrie] brought up sex talk

before Mr. Salesman did?" Aaronson asked the agent.

"Yes, probably."

And so it went. Even as revelations about Salesman talking about a "pay to play" culture came across on FBI tapes, even as it was revealed he took cash for introducing agents to his political friends, the defense tried to keep the jury focused on the little things, the small talk. It's all part of its entrapment-defense strategy, trying to show that FBI agents tried to become friends with Salesman so they could persuade him to take bribe -- or consulting, according to Salesman -- money.

Aaronson, with his law partner Jamie Benjamin beside him, brought up Lochrie's sweeping stories about the Irishman's world travels. The lawyer honed homed in on Lochrie's stories about Iran, where the independent operative, who is reportedly in Dubai right now, talked about women there. He told Salesman that while sex was illegal there out of wedlock, all you had to do was say "I marry you" three times to a woman, have sex with her, and then say "I divorce you" three times in the morning to be done with it.

For the defense, these stories are meant not only to indicate entrapment but also to embarrass the government. And it's beginning to look like Aaronson and Benjamin are going to want to go over hours of this stuff.

After the day's testimony was over and the jury was out of the room, federal prosecutor Jeffrey Kaplan told Judge James Cohn that he too could pull out plenty of sexual comments made by Salesman. "We can show all the off-color things that Mr. Salesman did," he said. "It's a mutual thing."

Of course it is. Any undercover agent will tell you that the nature of the conversation usually originates from the target. They will say what they have to say to get the target comfortable enough with them to trust them. If the target drinks Diet Coke and hangs out at McDonald's, the agents will drink Diet Coke and hang out at McDonald's. If the target is a holy roller, the agents generally won't talk about how to score chicks in Iran. It's that simple. Agents learned from the original witness in the case, gang member Alden "Alpo" Budhoo, that Salesman tried to procure prostitutes, according to federal records. And the agents saw for themselves that Salesman was preoccupied, maybe even more than most men, with the opposite sex. So the "off-color" talk is a reflection of Salesman's personality, according to the government.

After the day's testimony, Salesman seemed calm, cool, and collected as he walked out of the federal courthouse toward Broward Boulevard. I asked him how he was holding up during the trial, which has already lasted a week and looks like it will go at the very least through the end of this week.

"I'm good," Salesman told me. "Let the evidence fall where it may... We still have a long way to go."  

-- A lot of people are wondering why it's taking the feds so long to make more arrests in the Scott Rothstein case.

Well, one reason is that the federal government is ridiculously slow. Period. Another reason is tied to this Salesman trial. Understand that Kaplan is a key prosecutor in the Rothstein investigation (along with Larry LaVecchio and Paul Schwartz). Obviously, Kaplan is preoccupied with the Salesman trial right now, so he can't focus on the Ponzi schemer. And so things continue to go very, very, very slowly.

After reading more of how Salesman was set up & busted, I'm not sure who the bigger scumbag is. The FEDS & Salesman are both criminals.

Why was no one on Wall Street busted?

This was an interesting comment in Mike Mayo's column today. So many of these judges just Do What They Want. Why are we putting up with a second Chief Judge (first Ross, then Tobin) who is so arrogant? Can anyone make a list here of the 12 judges up for re-election?

It has been a full six months since major transparency took place in Broward County due to Bob Norman breaking the Rothstein story ... and the power of these people has not been neutralized. They have no shame and don't appear to give a damn about the taxpayers knowing about their indiscretions. We need to start at the top...get rid of these bad judges! I read BN's column about ex-judge Seidlin recently and it was unbelievable, and I think there are more of his kind in our court system. More exposure is needed here in the Pulp Blog. I hope Mayo stays on top of Tobin.

justice_seeker at 7:50 AM March 30, 2010 Mike, as a former insider...I can tell you the judges do not want to be tracked. When BSO tried to have the bailiff complete a daily activity log, the same form every other BSO non supervisory personnel complete, the judges went ballistic! The form you see, would document the bailiff's time and indirectly the judges time. If a bailiff wrote that he /she was not in a courtroom from 1p-5p, then what was he/she doing? The judges absents are well known and there is nothing anybody can do about it as it is tolerated. Your answer from Tobin should be evidence enough. As far as Gardiner is concerned, no you did not single her out, anyone who has spent 5 minutes with her knows she is arrogant,obstinate and full of herself. Truly believes the universe circles her. She is disloyal and quick to throw anyone under the bus. What is occurring to her is the work of karma, more to come.

On Ana Gardiner:

Broward Circuit Judge Ana Gardiner is facing a three-day trial in September on accusations that she maintained a close and inappropriate personal relationship with a prosecutor during a death-penalty trial.

A state watchdog agency on Tuesday denied Gardiner's motion to dismiss its charges. She has 15 days to file a formal response to the allegations leveled by the Judicial Qualifications Commission.

Disgusting.

I am nauseated to read of such filth and vile conduct. How nay-vvh of me to think that just because I went to synagogue today to commemorate the exodus of my Hebraic ancestors from Pharaoh's House Of Bondage things would be different.

Is this article suggesting that a one Mr. Fitzroy Salesman is accused of wanting to stuff his hardened Mandigo into Ms. Canada choice triple grade A white meat complete with matching drapes and no curtains? No doubt Ms. Canada would jump at the opportunity to be defrocked by the grinning geriatric and soon to be criminal all rolled into one convenient package.

Why would a God fearing Christian man quoting today's blog be, "preoccupied, maybe even more than most men, with the opposite sex" and the "pay to play" culture .

Without doubt they are referring to prostitution and whoring. Mr. F. Salesman knows this is a sin. He knows this is a crime. He know these children are someone's sweet and loving daughter. He knows he is over 30 years older. He knows this degrades the woooman form and species. If anyone should be sensitive to these kind of issues' it should be Mr. Fitzroy, a man who like yours truly comprehends what slavery and bondage means.

IF and I repeat IF, Mr. Fitzroy went out of his way to seek out with the intention to fornicate beautiful, hot, thin and to die for Ms. Canada white meat equivalents with his Mandigo using bribery moolah while 'his' own cash collects compound interest in an investment account one cannot help but recall the inspirational words (see paragraph below) of Reverend Al. Sharpton who is without question one of this nation's greatest free thinkers and spiritualist.

"Why is it that a man who calls himself black can't bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?" said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem . "What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over? Shame on you, Tiger Woods. What would your daddy say?"

Sharpton, who has long championed taking black women as mistresses, said that today's black athletes need to stop neglecting black women when it comes to extramarital affairs, and should follow the examples of positive black role models such as Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom cheated on their wives with black women. Sharpton also stressed that cheating with African-American women would help the black community financially by giving black girls the chance to sell their stories to tabloids and gossip magazines.

Added Sharpton, "I'm not asking you to not cheat on your wives, I'm just asking you to give back to your own community."

@G3:

clever, but no, that would only help one of the elements of entrapment - that they overcame his natural reluctance to commit the bribery crime by tempting him with women. he would still have to prove that he's a saint no one would ever think would be willing to accept a bribe.

and even then, the defense would have to come out and explicitly argue that Salesman was so addicted to sex that he would have done any criminal act the feds suggested if they would only feed his addiction. that's really tough to get out with a straight face.

I understand there is a pending motion in limine filed by the Gov't to exclude conversations regarding a "Reverse Rick Moranis" and a "Dirty Sanchez". This legalese is well above my pay grade.

The motion in limine also mentioned a gerbil I hear.

Judge Sirica

showing that the government played to his fondness for sex should get the defense absolutely nowhere legally. that doesn't even approach the neighborhood of the vicinity of entrapment. must just be trying to confuse the jury and hope they think of that when the judge instructs as to the elements of entrapment (if he even lets the jury consider it when all the evidence is in - the prosecutor can even ask for an instruction that getting Salesman comfortable by engaging in conversation on a topic he's fond of doesn't cut it)
