Florida Pol Suspected of Stalking

Florida House Rep. Richard Steinberg is reportedly under investigation for stalking a U.S. attorney, court documents recently released have revealed. The assistant U.S. attorney, Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos, said she began receiving texts from a Yahoo account known as itsjustme24680,which has been traced by Steinberg, a 39-year-old lawyer living in Miami Beach. According to the search-warrant affidavit, Fernandez-Karavetsos said she knows Steinberg in a “professional, non-intimate way” and messages have caused her “substantial emotional distress.” She has saved some of the messages to prove to the court about the repeated incidents, and Miami Beach detectives have now requested access to Steinberg’s Yahoo account. The investigation is ongoing.
