Charlie Crist and Scott Rothstein’s multi-million dollar biofuel scheme

Fraud, fakes, felons, fuel and missing little girls

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

On February 11, 2014 Timothy Charles Holmseth (self-reporting herein), investigative journalist, sent a letter to United States Attorney Wifredo Ferrer.

“During journalistic interviews, I was told Florida Governor Charlie Crist was partnering with Scott Rothstein and several others in a $231 Million deal involving a government biofuels contract,” Holmseth said in his letter to the U.S. Attorney.

Scott Rothstein and Florida Gov. Crist

“[William Eugene Staubs] told me it involved the “biggest billy bad-ass attorney” in Florida. He said the attorney’s name was “Rothstein””, Holmseth said.

Holmseth’s two page letter to Attorney Wifredo contains information that is backed up by recorded journalistic interviews – many of which were turned over to the Minneapolis FBI when Holmseth was interviewed in 2010.

Holmseth published a column on November 4, 2012 entitled “Rothstein”. “I recalled Staubs telling me something about Governor Charlie Crist, the most powerful lawyer in Florida, a government contract, and $231 Million,” he said.

The facts have not changed.

William Staubs, Case Closed Inc., Fort Lauderdale, is a licensed private investigator in the state of Florida. He had been featured in the media after interjecting himself into the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation. Holmseth interviewed Staubs in 2009 about the missing child, but the conversation soon changed to biofuels.

Staubs was irate somebody he knew was attempting to utilize the legal services of Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler to assist with financial the matters of the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping because, he said, they were trying to “pierce the corporate veil” of the biofuel company.

The biofuel company was “Alternative Biofuel Technologies Inc” (ABT).

Records of the Florida Bar Association show that after the mother of HaLeigh Cummings was reported to the Department of Agriculture for operating a money scheme, she did in fact receive legal advice and guidance from the “law firm of Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler, PA, in Broward County, Florida”.

Staubs told Holmseth that his friend had invented priceless technology that could convert waste into fuel. He said a multi-million dollar government contract was coming because of connections with (then) Florida Governor Charlie Crist.

Holmseth then received a recording of voices discussing the biofuel deal, wherein a man (believed to be Jeremiah Regan, administrator, HaLeigh Bug Center) is being assured that in addition to the five-hundred and fifty grand they had just received, there was two-hundred and thirty one million dollars they have been promised.

Staubs said the $231 Million was an inside deal with Charlie Crist.

At one point Staubs laughingly admitted the biofuel technology and business was all a hoax. Using an analogy, he described one man turning on a machine, while another man hidden around corner with a gas can, dumped fuel into a container. He said it was all “bull-shit”.

Staubs told Holmseth the money to fund the daily activities of the HaLeigh Cummings endeavor was coming from a man named John Burgun, Plantation, Florida.

Articles of Incorporation show ABT was registered on October 14, 2008. The Registered Agent was Richard P. Greene (convicted felon) and the Director was another man (convicted felon).

On January 29, 2009 John Burgun replaced the first Director.

John Burgun and his wife, Maria Burgun, by all known accounts, are respected business owners in Broward County. Edward Boyle, brother-in-law, John Burgun, said John Burgun became the Director of ABT because they did not want a convicted felon as the face-man during the roll out.

Most perplexing is the involvement of “ABT” in two separate missing person cases.

ABT was formed the same day Casey Anthony was indicted for murder (October 14, 2008). Less than two weeks after John Burgun became Director of ABT; HaLeigh Cummings disappeared and Burgun’s money was used to finance the endeavor.

In 2009, Holmseth was being copied on internal emails being generated by the legal team working for Crystal Sheffield, mother, HaLeigh Cummings. Also being copied on the emails was Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler.

After Holmseth published the truth about ongoing events, he received an angry email advising him to contact Pedro E. Dijols, Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler with his media inquiries. Holmseth contacted Dijols, and Dijols confirmed.

Official court documents from the United States Courts show ABT was listed amongst the forfeitures after Scott Rothstein was charged with violating RICO: (BI17) Scott W. Rothstein’s equity interest, and licensing rights, in Alternative Biofuel Technologies, Inc.

In 2012 Holmseth told Special Agent Dave Roberts, FBI, what he knew about Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler’s involvement in ABT.
