Florida Governor Ricks Scott’s nemesis investigating published claims regarding FDLE black operations
by Timothy Charles Holmseth
Florida Governor Rick Scott’s long-time nemesis, Tallahassee attorney Steven Andrews, has been investigating critical facts and circumstances regarding highly sensitive Florida cases – including the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping and mysterious death of Caylee Anthony.
Attorney Andrews recently revealed the existence of his broad fact-finding probe in a letter from his law office to a media contact.
The decision to release the information about the fact-finding mission appears to have been sparked by what Andrews described as “extortion” against his client, Dr. Mark Hash. The extortion included a written admission by Hash’s former lawyer, David F. Chester, Tallahassee, to an ex parte meeting with a Leon County Judge.
On October 29, 2014, Attorney Chester emailed Dr. Hash and told him, “Pack your toothbrush”.
Chester then proceeded to threaten Hash. “I wanted to let you know that I am currently getting dressed to pay a visit to Judge Gievers this afternoon, and I’m bringing her a gift,” Chester said, adding he was going to show Gievers something that had been “handwritten” by Hash.
Chester’s threat was based upon Hash’s refusal to give him nearly a million dollars, which Chester claims Hash owes him in attorney’s fees; but for which there is no billing statements.
Hash has also received demands for money from William Staubs, a private investigator that once conducted a high profile search for the missing child HaLeigh Cummings. Staubs once worked contractually for Hash, and then subsequently, threatened to send private information about Hash to the Court if Hash didn’t give him a large amount of money.
Staubs has boasted to sitting down with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and openly claims to telephoning judges at home.
Dr. Hash was a physician at First Impressions weigh loss clinic in Tallahassee, and was arrested by the FDLE on felony charges in 2009. The charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence.
Records show the weight loss clinic was a drug-hole for law enforcement and government officials, including the Florida governor’s chief inspector general, Melinda Miguel, who was allegedly obtaining prescription medication, which itself was being obtained by secretary level employees who were using Dr. Hash’s DEA license without his knowledge.
