Why Was Former Broward Sheriff Scott Israel Palling Around With “Mini-Me” Thug Wayne David Collins?
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis removed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel within days of becoming governor. The public conscience was that it was for Israel’s poor handling of school security. Israel’s critics alleged that his inept management resulted in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School 11 months prior to his removal.
However, it became clear he had a lot of scumbag friends once he was removed. Two of Israel’s biggest scumbag friends were Fort Lauderdale Ponzi schemer and disbarred lawyer Scott Rothstein. Rothstein is now serving a 50-year sentence in federal prison for running a $1.2 Billion Ponzi scheme out of his Fort Lauderdale law office.
The other is scandal-prone “Mini-Me” impersonator and all-around scumbag bail bondsman Wayne David Collins.
Collins even bragged to GoLocalPro in Rhode Island:
Collins also claimed he and Israel jointly coached their kids’ football and baseball teams. Collins’ companies also gave thousands to the Common Sense Coalition. The PAC took in $160,000 on Israel’s behalf from two of Scott Rothstein’s partners. Coincidentally, Rothstein and his partners represented Collins and several of his businesses.
Collins also helped raise another $13,700 for Israel from others in South Florida’s lucrative bail bond industry. The scumbag bail bondsman even kicked $500 himself.
