Cleared of Charges, Zachariah Is Back In Presidential Politics


Less than three months after being cleared of civil insider stock trading, Fort Lauderdale heart doctor and top Republican fund raiser Zachariah P. Zachariah is back in big time, big money politics.

Last Friday, Zachariah was circulating through the crowd at the Broward Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner, shaking hands and discussing politics, according to Richard DeNapoli, chairman of the Broward Republican Party.

And as the 2012 presidential campaign heats up, candidates are calling on Zachariah at his $3.3 million sprawling estate on the Intracoastal Waterway in Sea Ranch Lakes.  That doesn’t surprise Republicans.

    I said it before and I’ll say it again the doctor got lucky plain and simple. He did commit insider trading among other things. We all know the case that he was tried for. His other cohorts paid big mony in fines etc. to stay out of jail. He got lucky, big time. I will give him one piece of advice when you go up against the Feds and win (in his case) they will watch him like a hawk. Trust me.
