So, I don’t think that anyone was surprised by the recent news that Girardi & Keese had a few more rats in the barn. The latest situation involves the Chief Financial Officer, (CFO) not only knew everything that was going on, but also had his hand in the pot. CFO Christopher Kamon, 49, was arrested last week coming off a plane from the Bahamas where he allegedly fled after the shit hit the fan. Apparently he purchased a home there with is ill gotten gains. He is accused of running a ‘side fraud’ scheme within Tom Girardi’s law firm. Prosecutors claim Kamon however stole from the firm for the 20 years he worked there and had a front row seat to a wider theft within the law firm.
He is also accused of using the $10 million to pay for prostitutes who he allegedly gave monthly allowances to and showered them with gifts. During his initial court appearance, prosecutors slammed his greed saying, “This is not a Robin Hood-type of theft. This is purely greed and a lavish lifestyle.” They also said he was a flight risk to run back to the Bahamas.
How Much Did Erika Know?
So that is the background story. But, Erika is doing another victory lap on social media as if this somehow exonerates her. Does it though? She seems to have had her fingers in the exact same pie. Girardi Keese was sending money into an LLC that seems to have been set up just for that purpose. On the other hand, do I think Tom came home from work at night and said, “Today I stole millions of dollars from victims so you can live a life of luxury? No.
So what do y’all think? Will Erika be implicated in all of this? What if anything do you think she knew? I’m conflicted. But, I’ve yet to see any charges, civil or criminal against her. The only thing she has done is refused to give up all of her luxuries purchased by ill-gotten gains. I’m very curious about your thoughts.
