'He felt that somebody was finally talking to him': How the package-bomb suspect found inspiration in Trump

BOCA RATON, Fla. — The first thing that stood out about Cesar Sayoc was his vehicle.

As far back as 2002, lawyer Ronald Lowy recalled, the windows of Sayoc’s white Dodge Ram van were covered in stickers of Native American regalia. Though Sayoc was Filipino and Italian, he claimed to be a proud member of the Seminole tribe, Lowy said.

The lie was one of many Sayoc would spread about himself over the years. He falsely claimed to have worked as a Chippendales dancer, and he was once charged with fraud for modifying his driver’s license to make it appear he was younger, said Lowy, who represented him in the case. Sayoc seemed to have a new business venture every three months, though none was successful. He worked as a DJ or bouncer at strip clubs, dabbled in bodybuilding, and spent much of the past decade living out of his van, Lowy said.

“He made up stories in order to try to impress people,” Lowy said. “He felt like he didn’t have a background that he respected or liked.

South Florida by the numbers: The politics of real estate

Here’s something to think about: by the time you read the next edition of this column, Floridians will have elected a new governor, chosen Bill Nelson or Rick Scott as their US senator, and voted on several critical amendments, not to mention some key congressional races. Exciting, right? Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6, and early voting is already underway in one of the most significant mid-term elections of our time. Not surprisingly, real estate plays a big role on the Florida ballot, whether it is a major asset owned by powerful backers of candidates (or the candidates themselves), the root of a potential (but avoidable) tax crisis, or the basis of an inter-family disagreement. However things shake out, we certainly appreciate the opportunity to vote in free and fair elections. Let’s examine Florida’s real estate-politics nexus in this edition of “South Florida by the numbers.”

How can I get a mortgage in Florida with all this stuff happening?

I am 25 years old. My FICO score averages 425. I have 2 judgements on my credit. I make $139,000 and the home I want to purchase is in the 500,000 - 575,000 price range. I have $50,000 to put down. Any suggestions on what to do?

Don't get a mortgage until your FICO is in the 650 range.

The low FICO makes you vulnerable to every bit of trouble in the mortgage industry.
