Report: BSO Falsified Super Bowl Papers for Sheriff's Son With NFL in Dark

From left to right: FBI Special Agent in Charge John Gillies, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, ATF Special Agent in Charge Hugo Barrera, Miami Dade Police Department Director James Loftus, Lamberti, and NFL Vice President of Security Milt Ahlerich.

That BSO mini Super Bowl scandal refuses to die.  

Remember that first post on Sheriff Al Lamberti using his status as sheriff to get his teenaged son into last year's Super Bowl at Sun Life (Joe Robbie) Stadium? Well, it's kicked up a hornet's nest that was hit with a stick yesterday courtesy of South Florida Times reporter Elgin Jones.

Jones is digging into the situation and today reported that BSO falsified documents to get Nick Lamberti into the game as part of the official AFL security detail without consent of NFL or the Miami Police Department, which handled background checks on the security credentials.

The "Super Bowl XLIV Credentials Request Form for Law Enforcement," uncovered in a South Florida Times investigation, lists Nick Lamberti as the applicant, with his father the sheriff as his supervisor and BSO Captain Robert Schnakenberg as the supervisor signing off on the application.

The application was for "AFC Team Security During Pre-Event & Game Day."

The spaces for job title and date of birth for the applicant were left blank and the sheriff's office was listed as the teenager's place of employment.

A National Football League official told the South Florida Times that the NFL had not been asked and did not issue Super Bowl security credentials for Nick Lamberti.

"The NFL is not part of the decision-making process with regard to accreditation issued and approved by law enforcement," Michael Signora, the NFL's vice-president of football communications, said in an e-mail response to a query from South Florida Times.

We already knew from the document I obtained last month that BSO had given 16-year-old Nick Lamberti a bogus BSO employee number (0000) to facilitate his getting into the game. The implication here is that the sheriff and/or members of his command staff committed fraud to secure a major favor for his son.

Capt. Schnakenberg recently told the Pulp that the sheriff invited his son to the game and that the "NFL made him a pass." He also told me that Nick Lamberti's all-access attendance at the game was approved by the NFL (as well as the FBI). It now appears that the NFL had no idea that the sheriff's son was in attendance or that Nick Lamberti was a minor, that he was not employed at BSO, and that he would not be doing any security work. I have contacted Schnakenberg for comment on the latest findings and will update if and when I hear from him.

Whatever the case, BSO brass is becoming hypersensitive -- see inside to learn what sheriff's officials are telling the rank and file about supplying information to the media and what Al Lamberti recently said about the Pulp. 

According to sources inside BSO, sheriff's higher-ups have been reminding deputies at roll call and other occasions that they could get in big trouble if they give information to the press. They have even said that providing tips to the media regarding an ongoing investigation could be prosecuted as a third-degree felony.

Interesting. So if the sheriff does, say, an internal investigation on the Super Bowl credentials, then any deputy who talks about them will be subject to prosecution. For that matter, the sheriff could keep a perpetual investigation going on, say, former Scott Rothstein cohort David Benjamin to keep people mum on the topic.

It looks like that's what's happening. The sheriff is sitting on his hands with the investigation of Lt. Benjamin, who was Lamberti's executive officer when he escorted the Ponzi schemer out of the country at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport when Rothstein fled to Morocco. Benjamin also went into some sort of business with Rothstein and, according to sources, received at least $30,000 from the now-disbarred lawyer. The sheriff has been investigating Benjamin for about 16 months now. It's ludicrous.

But despite the attempted media and information blackout on Benjamin, the Super Bowl, and other uncomfortable issues, the sheriff is still apparently feeling the heat from the Pulp and other news-producing websites, including South Florida Times, JAABlog, and LEOAffairs. Every week, Lamberti sends out an agencywide email he calls "411-Friday" in which he addresses several topics. In the one put out this past Friday, Lamberti included this blurb:

Alternative News - I'm often approached by BSO personnel who are upset about things they read on internet blog sites or alternative "news" outlets, such as LEOaffairs, New Times, South Florida Times, JAAblog, etc. These sites are provocative by design and they're not always fair and balanced. They are more about entertainment than information and opinions usually outpace the facts. I appreciate all your expressions of support and please know that I am determined to stay focused on our mission and not to be distracted from our work.

Hey, I agree that the Pulp entertains at times and can be provocative, but I would suggest to the sheriff that he not underestimate the power of the new media. At the end of the email, Lamberti wrote in bold that his mission is "Raising Standards. Elevating Integrity. Delivering Excellence." 

Keep doing that, sheriff, and I'll try to do my part to help you get it done.

Oh PULPeee, why do you even jest that Al will somehow do the right thing? Benjamin should have been out over a year ago. Al needs to admit he screwed the pooch on the Superbowl fiasco already. It is only going to get worse for him. Technically, some BSO deputy statements or "leaks" may fall under whistleblower protection. Al better watch out with thsese rollcall warnings. Say an inside BSO man/woman blabs the real goods on the Superbowl fiasco -- you think Al will have the stones to prosecute and expose BSO to a retaliation claim? I think not.....

COMING SOON TO A POLICE STATE NEAR YOU.

This latest research into the impact that Wal-Mart has on local U.S. communities only enhances the other forms of slavery that Wal-Mart is well-known for across the world, with well-documented slave labor being used to create their "cheap" goods by poor people in other countries so that poor people in the U.S. can afford them. This is an organization known for blatant discrimination against women, and playing games on every level with people's wages and healthcare.

Perhaps most disturbing of all is that they are not satisfied with only enslaving their workers and those who supply their shelves; they recently turned their attention to the consumer as well. When Janet Napolitano revealed her "If You See Something, Say Something" program for Homeland Security, it was Wal-Mart she chose as the retailer to represent this fascist initiative of private corporations and government working together to spy on Americans. This program is nothing short of an East German snitch program that turns each American against their neighbor, thereby strengthening the power of the Homeland Security State -- not America itself -- and already has led to dire consequences.

So, when Wal-Mart announces that it is concerned about the health of its customers and would like to advise you about what your family consumes at the dining table, you had better check the ingredients

Tuesday, December 14, 2010The Latest Outrage in Tyranny USA -- Man Shot Dead By Police While Watering Neighbor's Lawn (VIDEO)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Editor's Note: Here is a perfect example of the citizen spy culture taking root in the USA with the "If you see something, say something" program encouraged by Homeland Security. A 911 call apparently was made after a neighbor mistakenly interpreted a man sitting on a porch as a "drunk with a gun." Officers arrived, ready for battle, and the man was killed . . . while watering his neighbor's lawn. Watch this heartbreaking video:

Former BSO Sheriff Jenne's son (the current state rep) always got a ticket to the Super Bowl when ever the big game came to MIA. I'm fairly certain (almost 100% positive) the younger Jenne was even a passenger in a SUV that was part of the police escort to drive one of the teams from hotel to stadium. But, no one ever said peep. So, why is Al getting hammered? He doesn't have enough friends in high places.... I guess.

A reporter needs to make a public records demand from BSO under FSS 112 for ALL e-mails written and received by Cpt. Snakenberg, Cpt. Fondo, Colonel Frey for the 4 months leading up to the Super Bowl. I can promise you that these records will contain heavy evidence pertaining to this entire issue. And I can promise you that those records EXIST in BSO servers and can easily be retrieved. They do it all the time.

BSO will try to deny or stall the request. Then they will quote huge costs associated with the effort to scare off any but the largest news organization. However--there is a way to view them at NO cost. Specify in the request that all the requested materials be assembled and made available for inspection. Then the reporter(s) can sit down in a room (while being monitored by an employeee) and read all of it. If anything is found that pertains and a copy is desired, that can be done immediately and you are only charged the cost of the single pieces of relevant paper. It should not be more than about 3 cents per page. The major news organizations already know a great written legal format to use in the request and I can supply it to anyone seriously interested. But it does not have to be fancy, written, giving a purpose or even with the name of the requestor. Send or take it directly to the the BSO PIO and it might be worth sending a copy to the Florida Attorney General to put him/her on notice that BSO will try anything to undermine the absolute dictates of the statute.

What is disturbing to me is that if you read about Junior. Junior has a 4.5 grade point average , pitcher on his baseball team and was chosen for FBI Leadership Academy. Appears junior is fully capable, productive and a great kid. When Big Al pulls his strings it makes one wonder what other perks, strings Junior gets for being the "son". Al, let Junior become the man on his own without your string pulls. He will be a better person in the long run.

Why won’t Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti tell the citizenry that he has to amend his gift disclosure documents (on form 9) to add Miami-Dade County awarded credentials given to the sheriff’s son (Nick Lamberti) and two all-access passes to Super Bowl XLIV that were handed to the sheriff and the sheriff’s son? Apparently there are plenty of sheriff command staff and county personnel to back the sheriff’s take on things. Is it because the sheriff does not believe that he needs to correct any public record involving favors or gifts extended to himself or any member of his immediate family, to which he feels he has an entitlement and might rabidly perceive as a perk of his public position? Or, does the sheriff know how hard it is to prove the receipt of gifts, if he does not admit to them, when so many on his payroll are willing to lie, cheat, or steal to cover for him?

In response to public records requests, BSO Public Records coordinator Alba Costoya has stated that “the Broward Sheriff’s Office is not in possession of a credentials application or a background check for Nick Lamberti.” In addition, BSO general counsel Judith Levine would not respond to reporters’ questions or several public records requests to explain what happened to those records, including related e-mails. However, others, under the command of Sheriff Lamberti, know that the credentials and all-access passes could be found, because of the relentless investigation into the matter by 2 very intrepid reporters, Elgin Jones & Bob Norman. So, these sheriff’s henchmen have taken a different stance than not returning calls to reporters or not giving information to the public. What they have done is transform the two valuable objects (that should have been reported on the state disclosure forms) into nonreportable items, by trying to cast these items as essentially worthless.

Jim Leljedal, a person that had worked for many years in the coverage of local news, and had attended the local Nova University (that is infamous for its graduate students, like Scott Rothstein), who is the Media Relations Director for BSO was unequivocal in his interpretation of what an all-access pass to the Super Bowl was worth. He made it known that the Super Bowl was not a BSO function, that might have had some value to it, if it had been affiliated with BSO. Certainly, due to the fact that he could see (from his prior experience of relating the news to the local folk) that there was nothing of value, he did not view such an all-access pass to the Super Bowl, in Miami, as a gift. (The question was not posed as to whether there would have been a value if the all-access pass was in another more worthy venue, other than what was being viewed as a location of little to no value in Miami, Florida.) Jim Leljedal also reported on the fact that the sheriff was out of the loop. The reasoning was that all of the deputies were working an off-duty detail for the NFL, NOT working under the direction of the sheriff -- thus, there would be no documents that could be depended on, listing a value, as he made it appear that the NFL must have also felt there was no value in what its own organization was doing, as the NFL did not need to take time out to make such a list (since Leljedal acted as though he knew there was no list).

BSO command staff shored up the excuses spewed by Leljedal. Jim Leljedal offered another disconcerted explanation for what he portrayed would not be a quandary, as the related reason seemed to be that the forms (that had been recognized to be under a standard policy to complete & file) were not required in this instance -- which reasoning had fallen under some type of description given concerning a fabricated explanation to the command staff under the sheriff’s heretofore unknown discombobulated guidelines. When documents were found that showed that the sheriff’s son was listed as a BSO employee (who had the especial identity as a member of the security contingent), BSO staff also reported that they could not be so sure, since BSO personnel had no idea who had completed the internal BSO documents (and BSO made the declaration that such documents could have been manufactured by an entity other than BSO, with the capability of filing these documents in the records of BSO). It was further explained that since the paperwork required by sheriff’s policy had not been submitted, the paperwork (termed a form 45) could not have been approved. However, it seems as though none of the deputies had to worry about their pay (although such hard to document pay might have not been under the IRS guidelines), because BSO command stated that all deputies working the off-duty detail were paid directly by the NFL. (So, maybe the documents belonging to the NFL would match the IRS accounting sheets, if an audit were to be found necessary for the responsible party.)

During the reporting of the original story, Lamberti had chimed in to deny that the credentials for his son would constitute a disclosable gift from the NFL. Additionally, BSO Capt. Robert Schnakenberg admitted that a document, actually listing the sheriff’s son (as though in a paid employee status), had gone through editing processes, but it seems that he believed that the editing process (performed by the sheriff’s office to a work product that Jim Leljedal had already explained would belong to the NFL, as the payor/employer) did not make major changes, and all of the altered documents would be merged into what would be presented as the one and only document for the detail. (Ahh. What Orwellian thinkspeak we have here!) It was clear that this particular BSO Captain saw no harm in the falsified document that BSO was filing into the public records, since it seems that he knew what had to be fit into the bigger picture. The BSO Captain reported that the all-access pass that the sheriff’s teenage son received was the same exact pass received by the sheriff, and that the NFL had favored the attendance of the sheriff’s son, with federal authorities keenly aware of the situation. BSO Capt. Robert Schnakenberg further clarified matters (that had been sold to the public by Jim Leljedal), that the NFL had made a pass for the sheriff, as an invitee and special guest. That pass had no value because of the way that the NFL had prepared it for the sheriff, and therefore, a pass, as had been received by the sheriff (as the father), had the same amount of NO value for the sheriff’s son, who supposedly received the same consideration in receipt of the special invite.

The logic spewed by these two, on the sheriff’s payroll, has reached new heights & is absolutely dizzying. Maybe Leljedal and Schnakenberg could provide a more thorough explanation if they were put under oath and asked appropriate questions by those in law enforcement who would want to more fully understand the matter (and by those men of law enforcement who would know how to get the truth out of the convoluted matter being deceitfully presented in such a way as to diminish the desire to seek the truth). Maybe, under the right line of questioning, these spokespersons for the sheriff could provide additional information about the Orange Bowl (attended at that time by Scott Rothstein, according to pulpster Mobius). Testimony could be had explaining how the sheriff and the sheriff’s son, as well as select sheriff’s deputies, had come to be invited to the special VIP area of the gangster Scott Rothstein, ensconced in the “VIP section inside the VIP tent” during the Orange Bowl (in a similar manner as the Super Bowl).

Who knows how many counts of perjury can be pursued by asking these persons the correct questions? Just glance at the most recent cases of perjury made against the former city commissioner & her developer friend in Fort Lauderdale, exposed by Bob Norman. A Super Bowl XLIV Credentials Request Form for Law Enforcement for “AFC Team Security During Pre-Event & Game Day,” giving the sheriff’s son unrestricted access to the Super Bowl, has been uncovered. Contrary to what he had told 2 intrepid reporters, BSO Captain Robert Schnakenberg signed off on the application, as the supervisor. Thus, it is easily proven that this specific BSO Captain was fully aware of the particulars of the matter. Moreover, Jim Leljedal has refused to comment, now that he knows that the public knows about the falsified application pertaining to the sheriff’s son and has an understanding that Jim Leljedal had spoken differently of the situation (that would not equate with what he has recently taken to muttering).

NFL officials say that they were unaware of the credentials being given to the sheriff’s son, that had been strictly reserved for law enforcement officers, NFL officials and corporate sponsors. It has been reported that the NFL is not part of the decision-making process with regard to accreditation, issued and approved by law enforcement. And, even though BSO has claimed that the NFL was asked for and approved the credentials for the sheriff’s son, the NFL says otherwise (as it would have violated the NFL policy of not being a part of the decision-making in that accreditation process). The NFL officials have said that they were unaware of the scam where the sheriff’s son became credentialed (BY MIAMI-DADE COUNTY), after filing a false and fraudulent application. Also, in the January article, Leljedal told Elgin Jones that 300 (three hundred) people from BSO had gotten credentials. If that is a fact (and not a typographical or scrivener’s error), these must have been ghost employees, as the article of February reports that 39 (thirty-nine) BSO law enforcement personnel had been assigned to duties (according to the Super Bowl XLIV Broward Sheriff’s Office Credentials Matrix Updated 02/03/10).

The false information had to be transmitted to Miami-Dade police (in some fashion, whether by snail-mail, by FAX, by e-mail, or other Internet communication). Fraud could be established, as it can be proven that members of the command staff would have known that the sheriff’s son should not have been able to document his position as a working BSO deputy, capable of performing the off-duty detail, under the standard application form. ALL SUPER BOWL XLIV LAW ENFORCEMENT ACCREDITATION HAD BEEN COORDINATED THROUGH THE LEAD LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY, THE MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT, and this agency has the ability to further investigate the matter (and hopefully the wherewithal).Law enforcement of other jurisdictions has been made aware of the falsification of the application, and it does matter to these agencies.

Schnakenberg currently oversees the BSO Criminal Investigations Division. If an investigation should be made by law enforcement, it should not be made by BSO, especially by the main person involved in the criminal acts in this enterprise where the sheriff’s son unjustly enriched himself, with the aiding and abetting of deputies under the command of the sheriff. If anyone at FDLE, with authority to open an investigation, has read these articles, something is going to have to come down the pike. What Lamberti permitted (of his henchmen) is inexcusable. I wonder if Director Loftus (in Miami-Dade) is cringing at the mention of the name of the sheriff in Broward County, knowing that the heart-felt words the Director spoke for all law enforcement (a week ago) can be dismissed (by those on the fence) through acts and actions that are taken by those corrupt officers wearing a badge, that pretend they’re like the majority of the force -- the majority who are decent, upright human beings, honorably serving a purpose to protect and defend, and NOT on the prowl for extra goodies in their basket of tricks. With all the bad press that Miami-Dade gets, I’ll bet that Director Loftus is wondering how that happens when looking at those who have been Broward County Sheriff (who escape the bad press, for the most part). However, even with the press always willing to cover-up how rotten and corrupt Broward County has become, it seems that the media should not have let the county get away with this one.

What was Broward County thinking, when permitting falsified documents to be filed under the jurisdiction of the neighboring county? What were the Broward County officials believing about their high-and-mighty status, when they deliberately plowed over the local law enforcement agency in the neighboring county, that held the real authority over the domain where the details would be converging? What in the world would have possessed the sheriff of Broward County to act like a potentate, in Miami-Dade County, to bestow special privileges on his own flesh and blood at the expense of security issues that fall under homeland security and the president’s pick of Janet Napolitano? What could be Lamberti’s reasoning for undermining the position of the ATF Special-Agent-in-Charge (Hugo Barrera) and the FBI Special-Agent-in-Charge (John Gillies)? While NFL Vice-President of Security (Milt Ahlerich) was not seated at the table with the public servants just identified, he was standing close by, and he has to have an opinion about the sheriff and his hench-men who cover-up their lies with such ease. What indeed does Lamberti believe would the NFL (or the nation) set in motion, if it was indeed felt that the local law enforcement had no care for the safety and security of the patrons exercising their right to happiness and to travel unmolested, in order to be present on game day in an area that the 1977 movie, BLACK SUNDAY, had portended a (Super Bowl) fate, that so much effort was put into to not occur?

In the January 20 article, Judge Sirica made a very valid point when he posted his take on the matter. When describing a legitimate reason for why the credentials would not be considered a gift, it was written “The credentials for legit security aren’t gifts . . . credentials obtained by fraud probably aren’t a gift.” Then, he offered a further detail about the sheriff’s involvement, which is that “It’s called abuse of office, and the fact that the NFL has better things to do than pursue it doesn’t change a thing. Altering or destroying public records just compounds the felony.” In today’s following article, I believe that DeathFrog3 wrapped up what the pulpsters have been thinking. He is spot on (and there could be more criminal acts to be made), but someone should be charged with a violation of sec. 838.022, F.S. 2010, -- Official Misconduct. So, in the interests of justice -- Can someone please remove the thumb out of the arse of Michael Satz, so that the State Attorney can stop sitting on his hands and possibly exercise the duties of his (taxpayer-paid) office, by looking into the matter and following through with the filing of an information, that will hopefully stop these criminals from operating in the county sheriff’s office (or else leave the taxpayer-supported Grand Jurors alone so that they can bring an indictment against these criminals hiding behind a badge)?

The illustrious Sheriff is afraid of the truth.. He controls the Sun-Sentinal, Miami Herald even the Westside Gazette will not report the truth because they have contracts with BSO delivering thousands of papers a month to the county jails and public safety building.. He is like the Don and will end their contracts if they report the truth.. It's also funny how every time a truth article comes out about his corruption he arrest another jail deputy (who all are black hmm?) and runs to the media claiming the jail is corrupt.. Maybe the whole department is a reflection of their boss??? Please keep up the good work on exposing the truth because how is it he was the only official with a 16yr old Deputy son?? Also wasn't everyone listed to work the event paid? So where is the check for his son?

Pardon me if this is not a strong analogy... but I can't help but think it fits "When the Cure Is Worse Than the Disease" You're the Sheriff and you have the opportunit to take your teenage son to the Super Bowl. A temporary badge and number is set up just for and only for the event. It was a wrong move but understanable. The crime is in the BSO cover up. If Laberti admitted his oversight and apologized it would have been accepted, more on. Not now after all the postering and documents being destroyed. They have to investigate this wrong doing now and it has to be treated very seriously.

Benjamin has plenty of info that would be damaging to the Sheriff's Office, and he'd spill if prosecuted. Forget the BSO "investigation," Florida Dept Of Law Enforcement should conduct a criminal investigation of the Benjamin/Rothstein affair, and ascertain why Lamberti has not taken action. Interviews with Deputies will reveal some interesting information on improprieties by BSO ranking staff under Lamberti. AND... incredible stories from the Jenne years complete with a menage a trois involving two of Jenne's highest ranking staff and a staff secretary, all married to others. And Jenne's awkward discovery of two getting it on in the BSO parking lot (ratted out by the third) and the firing of the secretary (and subsequent rehiring at a higher salary)!

Maybe the analogy doesn't quite work, but your commonsense assessment of the situation is unassailable. To reopen Lamberti's window of opportunity now would call for some very fancy maneuvering that might well fly in the present environment of corruption and cynicism; then back to business as usual. Otoh, the sheriff may have had the gall, as it appears to many, to make those stonewalling statements because he holds some very high cards. Or maybe he's just blindly digging himself in deeper. If it's time for him to go, the least he can do is take some deserving deputies with him.

I think this is bigger than anyone is understanding. What Lamberti did was illegal. What if, not sayin, but something serious happened to or because of the kid. Taxpayers would pay BIG. What he did was a lie-ability.

Hamas gained power in democratically held elections and burning the flag of any country--including your own-- does not constitute anti-democratic behavior. On the contrary, that activity is precisely what is protected in a democratic society.

P.S. Say hello to Bebe Rebozo for me.

Don't forget Tom Wheeler.....he is Benji's buddy. What a surprise. Hey, the Sheriff is right, this is entertaining.

Excellent work by Sl FL Times writer Jones. We desperately need Pulp to keep up the pressure (and wider circulation) of this inquiry into the sheriff's dubious ethics. The real question is WHY has the Sun-Sentinal, Miami Herald and local prosecutors not gotten seriously involved. If the BSO's actions were not seriously corrupt, they would not have made such an intense effort to cover it and obstruct the evidence and testimony. I promise that additional info will be forthcoming that will drive even deeper into the true corrupt character of this disappointing excuse for top law enforcement.

Thank you skydove.....Very well said. His window of opportunity to correct the mistake of not apologizing for taking his son to the game has passed. How sad of all the things the Sheriff has to handle he has to make what would have been(In my opinion) a minor offense worse by their cover ups.

More communist propaganda. Hamas is a terrorist organization controlled by Iran. You agenda is showing once again.

Lamberti is not corrupt. In over his head, HELL YES. He is not corrupt. I doubt the ticket thing was even his idea. My guess is there was a suck ass manager oh say at the Captain level who wanted to be in Lamberti's grace and favor, hence the pass.

That said, I have outlined the statute for official misconduct and I believe it applies. The other question I have is do we have an impersonating a LEO offense on by Nick? Is Schnack part of a conspiracy for Nick to impersonate a LEO.

What would happen to a deputy X if he told the people that hire for the detail that he was bringing another employee and he brought his 16 year old son? What would BSO do to him? Did Loftus, Gilles, or any of the other agency heads bring their kids too? Was it just Lamberti?

The same could be said about Israel or even the U.S. corp.

It all depends on your point of view.

Is Mubarak a ruthless dictator or a friendly allie?

They were elected by popular vote. That is fact. Whether they are a terrorist organization is a matter of opinion.

Like maybe Ricky Frey or Louis Cavallo..... no problem Sheriff we will take care of it. Same way that Frey, who destroyed the jail, hired all the thugs smuggling contraband into the jail with the tattoos and gold teeth and now caused another embarrassment to the Sheriff in the media and internally. Seems like Frey should be investigated. Oh yeah..he was....wasn't it sex on duty? I can't seem to find the video yet.
