Former assistant AG’s role on ethics complaint committee raises questions
TAMPA — Erin Cullaro, a former assistant attorney general fired after moonlighting for a “foreclosure mill,” continues to serve on a committee that investigates ethics complaints.
Some lawyers and consumer advocates question whether Cullaro belongs on the Florida Bar Association committee.
“The bar’s self-monitoring leaves much to be desired,” said Lisa Epstein of Foreclosure Hamlet, which tracks foreclosure fraud.
Cullaro, who worked for the state attorney general’s office in Tampa, was fired in April after a reprimand by Gov. Rick Scott’s office over variations of her signature on documents.
The attorney general’s office had reprimanded Cullaro in 2010 for notarizing documents on behalf of a foreclosure mill the office was investigating.
