Lamberti the victim of Scott Israel dirty trick?

There are 4 comments on the story from Oct 11, 2012, titled Lamberti the victim of Scott Israel dirty trick?. In it, reports that:

An upset voter called yesterday to say she'd gotten a robocall from the Florida Tea Party endorsing Republican Sheriff Al Lamberti. It was enough to make her re-think her vote. But Lamberti said he's the victim of a dirty trick, just as primary sheriff's candidate Louis Granteed was in August. Voters might recall a series of phone messages in the Democratic primary between Granteed and Scott Israel. Granteed was endorsed in a prank robocall by the Tea Party. Then came the call from "George W. Bush'' talking abuot what a great guy Granteed is. Well, Granteed lost. Now the Tea Party is heaping its love on Lamberti.

Lamberti denounced the endorsement calls. "It's highly suspicious, and probably a dirty trick,'' Lamberti said. "The group doesn't exist. When you call them back, there's no answer. ... I don't think this is a real organization.'' When this happened before the primary, legendary political pest Roger Stone was blamed. He was cagey in answering whether he was involved in the sheriff's race, but denied involvement in the Tea Party Miami endorsement calls.

I was just at the Tea Party site and Sheriff Al is right up there with Allen West. There is no dirty trick. Why the Tea Party would endorse a crook like Lamberti is beyond me.

This is bull. Lamberti has been trying to get the support from the local Tea Party groups for a long time. Now he is dancing around the Tea Party support so he can win the election, at any costs to himself, his character, or the future of the BSO.

If anyone does a little research on Al Lamberti they will find that instead of putting crooks behind bars, he is in bed with them. Ponze schemer Scott Rothstein was just one of him many crooked confidants.

The BSO needs a positive change in leadership - and the ouster of Al Lamberti.

Everybody knows Lamberti is the dirty one here and those who got ripped off in the Ponzi scheme resent their money having been used to elect Lamberti to be Scott Rothstein's partner in crime.
