I am so ashamed and embarrassed that the world now thinks of Tampa Bay as a hiding ground for scumbags.

I also never would have imagined that it would be possible in this country to buy and live in a $1.5 million mansion on Bayshore for free (they haven't paid their mortgage for years), drive expensive cars while being hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, hob-nob with the nation's 2nd most powerful man (CIA director) while having a FAKE cancer charity, and being appointed a special consul by the State Department while trying to extort $80 million from a CEO.

Pam Iorio, Charlie Crist, Bob Buckhorn, and all of the other political IDIOTS who humored this scumbag's Ponzi scheme should be ashamed of themselves.

Agreed. She's a con-artist but has brought up so many issues in society.

No, it's not what rich people do. Not every wealthy person is a scumbag and defrauds like these people have.

The world doesn't think Tampa Bay is a hiding ground for scumbags. There is a new scandal every week and each one is in a different place.

If you are so ashamed and embarrassed by the attention this brings to Tampa, why are you drawing attention to it?

I guess you are the kind of person who likes to sweep things under the rug.

You can blame Jill Kelley for the unwanted media attention and tarnishing of Tampa's rep, not me!

This is not just a "new scandal of the week". This scumbag brought down a CIA director!!! The second most powerful man in the U.S., and possibly the world! When was the last time that happened? That's right: NEVER.

Media from around the world have been reporting on this story, and on the Tampa community, and how its residents and politicians enabled this woman and her fraudulent lifestyle. As they should: There are MANY questions to be answered, and many people who have a lot to answer for.

Nothing new- just it came out in the light as many things do now are because of our personal computers, I think it is so foolish to be in a high place KNOWING that nothing is really secret to be doing underhanded things, Eventually all will come to light- but the high end folks live above the laws and always have- you my have a handful of really good people who do the right thing, but not surprised when one has the sheets pulled off, and do we allow it-- yes we do, there is little accountability anymore. Now she wrote the major a hate letter- she feels she is the victim, woohweehooo-

One thing is for sure, she is good at what she does, which is building a social ponzi scheme that she was able to maintain for some time, lol. What's amazing is how she tried to use a non -paying title she managed to get and convert it to income , talk about an accomplished con artist.


BTW, this has nothing to do with Tampa Bay, it can be anywhere else too!

She's a little princess that has never contributed anything to the earth except a little sex to a lot of dudes allegedly.

Never earned anything except on her back allegedly, and now is a victim.

Apparently her and her twin sister have racked up quite a bit of debt and skeletons in their closets
