Cindi Hutchinson's Developer Friend Had Alleged Civil Fraud History With Toy Store

And it was Deal who snapped several photos of Hutchinson sitting with former Toy Store manager and construction project manager Steven Goldstrom at a 2009 City Commission meeting. Goldstrom was working with developer Glenn Wright when he began ordering subcontractors to do work on Hutchinson's home, prosecutors allege.
How she thought she could get away with telling a BSO detective that she didn't know anyone associated with Wright's company we'll probably never know. Here's a backview shot by Deal of Hutchinson and the bald Goldstrom, who himself was charged with perjury, at the meeting.
Hutchinson was a creation of the Steel Magnolias, which at its core was a trio of women. One of them was Ellyn Bogdanoff, currently a state senator. Hutchinson and Bogdanoff were close political allies to the end.

In part because of their triumphs with the likes of Hutchinson and also criminally charged Stephanie Kraft, the Magnolias were once touted by the media as a Broward political powerhouse. Below is a piece Deal dug up from Florida Trend.
