ERIC “THE PRINCE OF DARK MONEY PAC’S” ROBINSON -BEHIND HOLDER ATTACK ON STEUBE
By Jon Susce
|Once again, Eric “The Prince of Dark Money” Robinson’s CPA office in Venice is the site of “Garbage In and Garbage Out.” Once again, Eric Robinson, who is the most fraudulent and deceitful of local political operatives, other than Bob Waechter, is tied to another conniving political attack put out, no doubt with the approval of Doug Holder, against Holder’s opponent for the Florida State Senate, Florida State Representative Greg Steube.
Also involved in this attack on Steube is Robinson’s wife, Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson, aka Christine “The Crooked Argus Hack Politician” Robinson.
|ROBINSON DEVIOUS POLITICAL OPERATIVE|
|Whether the political ad, recently put out on the streets, attacking Steube is truthful or accurate, which is doubtful considering the depth of deceit that Robinson has been documented as perpetrating, is not as important as in how this ad was put out.
What is most important for the general public to understand is that Robinson, who is Treasurer of the Holder campaign, once again proves himself to be a conniving and devious behind the scenes political operative, who lacks any type of integrity or the courage to come out in public view to attack an opponent—and this statement is both truthful and accurate.
This recent back stabbing attack by Robinson on behalf of Holder is how Robinson operates with the over 50 PAC’S that he manages in order to move millions of dollars of dark money from one PAC to another PAC for the purpose of attacking the opponents of his clients.
|ROBINSON CONTINUES DECEITFUL PRACTICES|
|The unscrupulous, fraudulent Robinson technique is very simple. Robinson establishes a PAC and transfers money from that PAC, (which he manages) into another PAC, and then draws funds from it to attack the opponent of his client. Robinson has recently used this deceitful attack strategy on opponents of Sarasota County Commissioner Paul Caragiulo, Sarasota County Commissioner Al Maio and Sarasota County School Board member Bridget Ziegler.
Robinson’s involvement with the attack piece on Steube came from his association with the PAC, FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS; he also manages a PAC called, CITIZENS FOR FLORIDA PROSPERITY.
CITIZENS FOR FLORIDA PROSPERITY was established on August 20, 2010 and is being operated out of Robinson’s CPA office in Venice with Eric Robinson as the Treasurer and his wife, Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson as the Registered Agent.
|ROBINSON INVOLVEMENT WITH CRIST OPERATIVE|
FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS is managed by Mike Hanna, a longtime political operative out of Tallahassee. Hanna ran a million dollar PAC for former Governor Charlie Crist, once calling Crist, one of the Robinson’s favorite Governor’s, “a gifted politician.”
|HOW ROBINSON MOVED DARK MONEY TO ATTACK STEUBE|
|From August 20, 2010 to July 1, 2016 the Robinson administered PAC raised over $645,000 with $335,000 going to Hanna’s, FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS ANDTRUTH IN POLITICS PAC, which is the PAC that paid for the Steube attack piece. On July 1 2016 FLORIDA FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS contributed $1,000 to the Robinson’s CITIZENS FOR FLORIDA PROSPERITY PAC.
On July 20, 2016 and July 28, 2016, FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS received two $40,000 contributions from a PAC called FLORIDIANS FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT with a P.O. Box 11192 in Tallahassee.
The Chairman of the FLORIDIANS FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT PAC is Russell Doster, who happens to be the father of Brett Doster who is the President and founder of Frontline Strategies, whose political consulting company has been paid $165,000 by Holder to run his campaign against Steube.
On July 27, 2016, the FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS PAC, managed by Hanna paid $40,000 to One on One Communications in Miami, Florida, which placed the attack piece against the Robinson/Holder opponent, Representative Steube.
|ROBINSON USES MIAMI FIRM TO ATTACK OPPONENTS|
|This is not the first time that both FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS and the Robinson’s CITIZENS FOR FLORIDA PROSPERITY PAC have used One on One Communications, a direct mail company in Miami operatedby Jose Navas, to attack their opposition in Sarasota and throughout the State of Florida.
For example, FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS has on 18 different occasions, paid One on One Communications, a total of $261,000 to attack various politicians throughout the State of Florida. The Robinson’s PAC, CITIZENS FOR FLORIDA PROSPERITY has expended on 8 separate occasions, $122,000 to One on One Communications to attack opponents of their clients.
|ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF ROBINSON MOVING DARK MONEY FOR HOLDER|
|Another example of how Robinson moves dark money from one PAC to another in order to assist his political hack clients like Holder, happened when Robinson moved $63,000 from his managed COMMON SENSE PAC to his managed Holder PAC, FLORIDIANS FOR EQUITABLE GOVERNMENT.|
|ROBINSON AND HANNA ATTEMPT TO HIDE|
|The Robinson’s and Hanna, in an attempt to hide their connection to the attack on Steube, disbanded their PAC on June 30, 2016 only to reorganize CITIZENS FOR FLORIDA PROSPERITY AND FLORIDIANS FOR ETHICS AND TRUTH IN POLITICS the next Day, July 1, 2016. Hanna’s managed PAC then proceeded on July 27, 2016 to pay $40,000 to One on One Communications to place an attack ad on Steube.|
|ROBINSON’S MAKE $MILLIONS FOR THOSE CORRUPTING SARASOTA|
|It’s incredible that Robinson, as demonstrated through his connection to Holder, sneaking around the gutters of local politics, moving hundreds of thousands of dollars in dark PAC money, along with his wife, Sarasota County Commissioner Christine “The Crooked Argus Political Hack” Robinson have been made millionaires through their numerous business arrangements with those financing a corrupt Sarasota County Government.
If Eric Robinson as a Sarasota County School Board member and his wife, Christine Robinson acting as a Sarasota County Commissioner is not a documented example of how totally corrupt Sarasota County Government has become—nothing does!
|ERIC ROBINSON ON SCHOOL BOARD IS A DISGRACE|
|Also incredible is that Eric Robinson, who is documented as being a deceitful, devious highly paid political operative who connives in the shadows against a political opponent, is the unopposed candidate for the Sarasota County SchoolBoard.|
|SHT MORE CONCERNED WITH ROBINSON’S GUNS THAN ROBINSON DIRTY PAC MONEY|
|By the way, it’s long past due that the so-called Editor of the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Bill Church had his “Lead Investigative Reporter”, Lee “Harvey” Williams take a break from his Gun Show and target practicing with Commissioner Robinson and begin investigating the Robinson’s corrupt political practices.
In addition, it might be a good idea if Church had his so-called political writer, Zac Anderson inform the SHT readers of how Holder has lied and how this attack ad on Steube is a prime example of how Robinson moves $millions of dark PAC money to corrupt local and state governments.
