Former Sheriff’s Candidate Is Back


Welcome back, Scott Israel.

Two years after he lost the sheriff’s race 49-51 percent to Sheriff Al Lamberti, Israel is again playing politics.

The former North Bay Village (Miami-Dade) police chief is on a host committee for a fund raiser with some Democratic heavy hitters.

Israel will be raising money for gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink with  national Democratic fund raiser Mitchell Berger, a downtown Fort Lauderdale lawyer and name partner in Berger Singerman; Lenny Samuels, the lead Broward County counsel for the Al Gore campaign during the 2000 recount and another Berger lawyer; Sam Poole, a Berger development lawyer; Ron Cacciatore, a key member of Property Appraiser Lori Parrish’s political machine and an investigator in her office; Tom O’Connell, a lawyer active in the Democratic campaigns; William Franz, a Fort Lauderdale lawyer; Howard Weiss, a Boca Raton lawyer who has served on many statewide and local boards and Scott Weiselberg, a law partner of Broward Mayor Ken Keechl.  

The fund raiser is being held at Kopelowitz, Ostrow, Ferguson, Weiselberg, Keechl.

    Scott Israel is yesterday’s story. I’m surprised he is staying involved, but he will never seriously run again.
