[Editor’s Note – It would seem that some sources for the relationship that Wasserman has are in conflict. Some say that Diana Wasserman is her mother and some do not. This source has her mother’s name as Ann. We are trying to get down to the bottom of this at this time – Editor].
UPDATE – We checked Wikipedia and several other articles we Googled and they had Diana Wasserman listed as Debbie Wasserman’s mother:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debbie_Wasserman_Schultz
Debbie Wasserman Schultz (born September 27, 1966) is the U.S. … She is the daughter of former Broward Commissioner Diana Wasserman-Rubin…
A local Broward blog says that Diana Wasserman is NOT Debbie Wassmerman’s mother, rather Diana Wasserman is just another lying, corrupt Florida Democrat who has engaged in criminal activity. At this point we do not know if they are related or not as several sources are in conflict. If it is a mistake it is an honest one and one that we had sources for – Editor.
Of all of the most vile, bold face, shameless liars in politics, no one tops acting DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. We have videos of her and youtube is rife with them; bloggers have sliced and diced her lies with verifiable sources from one end of the country to the other.
Like mother like daughter?
Richard Rubin Sentenced to Ten Months in Federal Prison
Richard Rubin — husband of former Broward County Commissioner Diana Wasserman-Rubin, who still faces seven felony charges of her own — was sentenced this morning to ten months in federal prison.
Rubin, 66, pleaded guilty in April to federal tax evasion after failing to report $100,000 in fees he received from the town of Davie for a land deal he brokered in 2004.
With attorney David Bogenschutz at his side, Rubin managed to get only ten months up the river — which is in accordance with sentencing guidelines but much less than the maximum penalty of five years.
Rubin had said in court that he and the wife faced financial burdens from damage done to their home by Hurricane Wilma and also owed on a loan he could not repay — which is why he attempted to cheat on his taxes a bit.
That also wasn’t too long after Rubin took in $1.1 million for writing grants for the town of Southwest Ranches — grants that were approved in part by the votes of his wife while she was a county commissioner.
Then, the probable-cause affidavit released last year contended, the couple was living quite lavishly — including spending money on artwork, cruises, vacations to Europe, and a $150,000 home repair project.
Rubin wasn’t charged with tax evasion until April of this year.
The State Attorney’s Office, however, charged Wasserman-Rubin last year with seven counts of felony unlawful compensation related to her votes for her husband’s grant-writing.
Rubin has until August 31 to report to his new home at a minimum-security prison.
