GOODBYE, MARC. SOME OF US WILL MISS YOU.

By Marty Rubinstein

When former Tamarac Commissioner Marc Sultanof passed away this week, there was still chatter going around the community about his dealings with the Chaits.

Now that one side has been silenced, we’ll never know the whole story

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

Marc (or insert any name you like here) was innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

In my view, accusations and warrants based on evidence provided by the Chaits ring as hollow as the defense testimony currently being given in the Casey Anthony trial.

Now that Marc is gone, expect more of the Norm Abramowitz treatment.

Blame it on the dead guy.

If the evidence against Sultanof was so strong, why did the SA wait until the last possible moment to charge him?

The arrest of frail, and perhaps terminally ill 89-year-old certainly couldn’t be considered as a feather in Satz’s cap.

Think of it to be more like a lump of coal.

Of course, what’s right is right.

But aggressively prosecuting this one was more like a publicity stunt by a desperate State’s Attorney too long asleep at the switch during years of real, tangible corruption both at the School Board and the county.

Corruption in Tamarac?

Likely so, since we already know the two biggest players are making shady deals to get out of paying the price for their own misdeeds.

The real question is; will the defense teams make swiss cheese out of the prosecution in the upcoming trials?

Stay tuned and we’ll find out.

As for Marc, I only know of one mistake.

He walked up to me at the Mayor’s Ball in 2006 and told me that voting to fire Frank Till was a stupid thing to do.

Even Marc understood the truth at the end of his life.

Rest in peace, my friend.
