Broward Sheriff's Lt. David Benjamin, Al Lamberti's own "executive officer," received $30,000 from Scott Rothstein for his outside consulting firm, according to a former close Rothstein associate.

Benjamin is at the far right.

The Sheriff's Office is currently investigating Benjamin's firm, DWB Consulting Group, a Delaware company incorporated in Florida in May with the help of then-Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler

attorney Christina Kitterman. It's not known if Benjamin paid for the services of Rothstein's law firm. Sheriff's spokesman Jim Leljedal said he couldn't comment on the investigation.

Benjamin, who helped strategize and organize Lamberti's political campaign last year, and Rothstein were close friends. The lieutenant accompanied Rothstein to the G-5 jet when he fled the country for Morocco on October 27. It's not known if Benjamin was compensated for that act.

At the same time, Rothstein, in an apparent attempt at setting up his former friend Moe Sohail, claimed that Benjamin was working with him as a bag man of sorts. Read the post below for more on that.

We also know that Benjamin was a guest in Rothstein's luxury box at Land Shark Stadium for at least one Dolphins football game. Leljedal said he believes that is permitted under department policy.

Lamberti removed Benjamin from his role overseeing Internal Affairs shortly after it was learned he assisted Rothstein's bolt from the country.

-- Gov. Charlie Crist just suspended Rothstein from the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Fourth District Court of Appeals. That Charlie, he's always so swift and decisive. It only took him three weeks. He replaced Rothstein with William Berger. (No, not former judge and RRA attorney William Berger of Boca Raton, but William Berger of Greenspoon Marder in Fort Lauderdale.)

-- There is some serious heat being applied right now to Judge Herbert Stettin, the receiver appointed to oversee the Rothstein bankruptcy. Miami attorney Richard Sharpstein is alleging that Stettin improperly

ran a private legal practice while serving as a judge.

The allegations "raise serious questions about Judge Stettin's fitness to continue as a fiduciary for the victims of the Rothstein scandal, who have every right to demand the appointment of an honest and independent trustee to protect their interests," Sharpstein and his client, wealthy investor Peter Halmos, wrote in a press release on the matter.

Here are the major points raised by Sharpstein on a website devoted to the judge's alleged transgression (and here's a link to a Stettin "white paper")
