Another Arrest By Satz In Corruption Probe


Former Tamarac Commissioner Marc Sultanof is the latest elected official to be arrested in the probe stemming from the father and son team of corrupt developers, the Chaits.

Saltanof is also one of Tamarac’s Democratic leaders.

Everybody should applaud State Attorney Mike Satz for pushing this  investigation so hard. 

Here is the news release:

                          Broward State Attorney’s Office Files Arrest Warrant

                                Charging Former Tamarac Commissioner

      An arrest warrant has been issued for former Tamarac City Commissioner Marc  Sultanof, who has been charged by the Broward State Attorney’s Office with six felony counts for accepting approximately $30,000 from two developers for his commission votes on their projects.

     Sultanof, age 89,  is charged with three counts of Official Misconduct, one count of Bribery, one count of Unlawful Compensation and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Unlawful Compensation.  The warrant was signed Oct. 28 by Broward Circuit Judge Michael A. Robinson.

     According to the arrest warrant, Sultanof used the money from developers Shawn and Bruce Chait to help pay for Sultanof’s 2006 Honda Accord. The warrant says he received the money from the Chaits, owners of Prestige Homes, between March 2006 through January 2007.  His improper relationship with the Chaits continued through November 2008, according to the warrant.

     Sultanof is scheduled to turn himself in at the Broward County Jail Tuesday.

     The charges of Bribery and Unlawful Compensation are both second-degree felonies with a maximum sentence of 15 years on each count.  The charges of Official Misconduct and Conspiracy to Commit Unlawful Compensation are each a third-degree felony with a maximum sentence of five years each.

    Satz is not winning Kings Point in his 2012 re-elction bid. That’s for sure.

  2. GeeGnome says:

    Mike Satz is the problem and not the answer.

  3. Enough says:

    The point has been made and I think we’ve had enough of this stuff now. Let’s focus on rebuilding the economy and turning a page in Broward’s history. I do not want anymore people in handcuffs. It is bad for business here and the reputation suffers too much. Move on.

  4. Resident says:

    From what is being heard, next up is Lieberman, Ritter and Talabisco.

    If true, and Scott gets to do the appointments to replace, it will be for an interesting County Commission, in the heart of Democratic territory.

  5. rothstein says:

    Could there be a subsequent federal trial for tax evasion?

  6. Go Yankees says:

    Broward attorney @ 3:27, you’ve got it backwards, and your take on this is shallow thinking. Kings Point doesn’t ignore corruption on their doorstep, they want it sorted out, and punished. If guilt is proven they’ll applaud it, and applaud those who investigated and prosecuted the ones who betrayed their trust.
