Gelber on recent conviction of "mini-Madoff" listen10/22/10 Kate Bradshaw
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Yesterday a New York judge sentenced Art Nadel to fourteen years in prison for defrauding hundreds of investors in a Sarasota-based ponzi scheme. The 78-year-old Nadel is known to some as a mini-Madoff, and will be doing his time in the same prison as Bernie Madoff. At a roundtable today in Sarasota, state senator Dan Gelber, the Democratic nominee in the attorney generalâ€™s race, announced thatâ€™s heâ€™d assemble a unit to tackle investment fraud if elected. Today WMNF spoke with Gelber, who says right now Florida is a haven for fraudsters who target seniors.
That was state senator Dan Gelber, a South Florida Democrat running against Republican Pam Bondi in the attorney generalâ€™s race.
Bondi was not available for an interview today, but we hope to speak with her before the election.
