Charlie Crist to Scott Rothstein: "We Love You"
Or maybe not. They blew out the candles on Crist's birthday cake a couple of years ago after giving the governor $52,000 (a grand for each candle).
Before the disbarred Rothstein's Ponzi scheme imploded, Rothstein and the governor were in regular contact. One thing about Rothstein, he always liked to be on the cutting edge of technology, and he had a gadget called Simulscribe that automatically transcribed all his voice-mails left at the office.
There are hundreds of transcribed voice-mails; I've obtained a sampling of the actual documents. Inside see a voice-mail left by Crist -- who calls himself Rothstein's "favorite Greek Governor" -- just days before the Ponzi imploded and Rothstein was exposed as a fraud.
Here's a transcribed voice mail that Crist left for Rothstein on the evening of October 27, 2009, just a few days before the Ponzi story broke here and after Rothstein had already fled in the Gulfstream V to Morocco.
Remember, this is only one of the communiques. The quirks of the Simulscribe program gives them an extra bit of strangeness, sometimes laughs. But they definitely shed a lot of light on his relationships with his business partners, politicians, etc.
Here's another one. This one I left in the explanation for the question marks in the text.
And one more for now. I wonder if he thought he was talking to Dan Marino (there's a voice-mail from the quarterback too):
