Martinez spent $1.5-million in the past week, and McCollum said he spent $800,000. Martinez also has the trappings of a well-financed modern campaign. His two-day "American Dream Tour" began in a 45-foot motor coach used by rock groups and country music stars, and switched to a DC-9 charter jet owned by Skyway Global, a Clearwater security firm whose owners are Martinez supporters.
Wilkes was deep into the CIA -- particularly with his high school pal, Dusty Foggo, who Porter Goss made the number three man at the Agency -- as well as being very deep into Duke Cunningham. And the stories that are swirling now are not just about things that happened in the last few years -- they stretch back into the early 1990s.
Moreover, he told us, the phony Homeland Security Seal was no longer on it, a statement confirmed by photos of the plane taken in Mexico after its interdiction...
Frederic Geffon from Royal Sons LLC, the Florida air charter company which the FAA listed as the last registered American owner of "Cocaine One," was happy to talk about Brent and Glenn Kovar's most recent (last year) bankruptcy.
"Their company is a scam and he’s a scammer. I got sold a bill of goods about his stock. Everybody out here at the (Clearwater-St. Pete International) airport invested with him, and we all lost it all."
“I had nothing at all to do with the plane by the time it was busted,” Geffon told us. “I sold it three weeks ago (in late March) to an aircraft broker, on behalf of someone in Venezuela.”
“The airplane was out of my name,” he continued. “I sent a blank form to the title company. Another airplane broker was also involved. It was delisted on the same day as the incident."
Asked the name of the Venezuelan buyer he sold the plane to, he responded, “I’m not at liberty to say. I’ve been asked not to say to whom the plane was sold.”
Who asked him not to say?
“I’ve been asked not to say who asked me not to say,” he said.
“Glenn Kovar told everybody he was with the CIA,” Frederic Geffon said. “A lot of people at the airport believed him, and became investors in his scam.”
SkyWay Aircraft was the only tangible asset of SkyWay Communications Holding, a firm whose existence served as nothing more than a meager excuse to run a penny stock fraud scam, successfully relieving investors of over $40 million dollars in only three years.
The busted DC9, dubbed "Cocaine One" in an earlier story, had an identical twin, a second airliner painted with the same distinctive blue-and-white-with-gold-trim of official U.S. aircraft, the MadCowMorningNews can reveal exclusively, and under the control of the same company.
During 2003 and 2004, both DC9's controlled by the firm (N-numbers N900SA & N120NE) boasted an official-looking Seal beside the door...
From above story:
The DC-9 seized by Mexico was previously owned by a partnership of Royal Sons and Skyway Communications Holding Corp. (Symbol: SWYCQ) of 6021, 142nd Avenue North Clearwater, Florida. SWYCQ's web site states, "SWYC was founded in 2000 by Mr. Brent Kovar. SWYC’s focus includes in-flight wireless Homeland Security and In-flight Entertainment (IFE) service." In 2003, then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay appointed Kovar as Honorary Chairman of the Business Advisory Council of the National Republican Congressional Committee. According to the Securities and Exchange Commission's EDGAR database, "Kovar has been President and Director of Sky Way Aircraft since inception.
