Fort Lauderdale attorney Scott Rothstein over the past few years began amassing fortunes, sweeping the political scene, and donating large sums to charities. New Times reporter Bob Norman broke the story on Rothstein's rise to affluence which was funded by a $1 billion Ponzi scheme. Norman was the first journalist to question Rothstein's legitimacy, and his continued coverage of the Rothstein case broke additional developments. Two months later Rothstein fled to Morocco on a private jet.
