Basketball court: Shawna Vercher vs. Tim Donaghy

A Florida House candidate’s legal battle with an infamous former NBA referee.

Shawna Vercher. - KEVIN TIGHE

  • Shawna Vercher.

In June of 2012, a Pinellas County jury deliberated for less than two hours before awarding former NBA referee Tim Donaghy $1.3 million in his civil trial against Shawna Vercher and her company, VTi Media. The jury ruled that Vercher had withheld proceeds from the sale of Donaghy’s memoir, Personal Foul, which VTi Media published. With legal fees later added on, VTi was judged to owe Donaghy $1.7 million, and Vercher herself to owe him $1.525 million. Five months later, she declared bankruptcy, and has refused to publicly comment on the case.

Until now.

Vercher, 37, was a Pinellas political and media consultant and radio talk show host whose career included stints working as a technology advisor to former Gov. Jeb Bush and a consultant to Barack Obama’s 2008 election campaign while heading VTi-Web, a web media company focused on helping small businesses compete online. She hosted a weekly radio show for years on AM 820 and was a syndicated columnist for the Huffington Post.

But her personal and professional life was knocked upside down during the brief but tumultuous few months when she worked with Donaghy in late 2009 and early 2010, shortly after he had been released from prison after serving 13 months on federal wire fraud and gambling charges.

She’s now telling her version of what happened in a book, A Fearless Voice: How a National Scandal Made Me an Advocate for Building a Better America, self-published earlier this year.

But that’s not all. She’s attempting to parlay her personal story into a platform for political office, and is running as a Democrat in FL House District 67 for the Clearwater-based seat being vacated this fall by a term-limited Ed Hooper.

But she has her critics, who say that the jury’s verdict and the facts on the ground speak louder than her new book about events over the past four years.

So let’s go back to the fall of 2009, when this tale begins.

Vercher had never heard of Donaghy until she attended a marketing conference in Atlanta in October of 2009 and overheard NBA executives yukking it up over the fact that they had successfully thwarted him from publishing his memoir with Random House. The memoir described his descent into gambling addiction, revealing how he was able to bet successfully on NBA games by analyzing certain refs’ subjectivity, revelations that some believe the NBA has never successfully refuted.

Not a huge NBA fan, Vercher looked up Donaghy (whom she refers to as “Larry” throughout the narrative). She learned that, although he had admitted to betting on basketball games, he had never actually been convicted of fixing them, a crucial distinction for her. “I sensed a David vs. Goliath story and I was outraged,” she writes, explaining how she felt compelled to work for the former referee.

A month after first hearing about him, Vercher met up with Donaghy, a Bradenton resident, at a Panera Bread in Sarasota following his release from prison. He hired her company, VTi Media, to publish and market the book and handle his media appearances. Had he fixed any games? she asked him. Of course not, he replied. In fact, she writes, he told her he could show her a polygraph test that proved that he’d passed — a polygraph he alluded to in Personal Foul.
news_b-ball_donaghy_book_cover_051514.jpg
According to Vercher, the initial printing of 10,000 books of Personal Foul sold within three weeks. But just a few months later, this budding professional relationship would go seriously sideways, with the referee ultimately claiming Vercher hadn’t paid him any royalties from the sales of the book, leading to his lawsuit in 2010.

Vercher’s book, A Fearless Voice, is not always easy going. The narrator’s suffering rises to Job-like proportions, and the justice system she describes is so suffocating it recalls Kafka’s The Trial. Here are some of Vercher’s key claims in the book:

• Immediately after Donaghy’s first media appearance following his release from prison, on CBS’ 60 Minutes, the U.S. Attorneys’ Office in New York City contacted Vercher to inform her that, as part of a deal Donaghy had made with the office, he didn’t have the right to publish his book or earn any money before clearing it through them. That meant that because she had a business contract with Donaghy, and because he planned on using royalties to pay off nearly $200,000 in restitution, “We had just unwittingly agreed to do business with the U.S. government looking over our shoulder… Almost overnight our business was paying for Larry’s crimes.”

• Donaghy’s next interview was with ESPN’s Henry Abbott, who asked the ref whether he had fixed any games that he officiated. Vercher’s book reasserts a claim she made in an interview with Abbott on his ESPN blog, TrueHoop, in 2010 — that when she suggested Donaghy take another polygraph test to alleviate Abbot’s concerns, Donaghy replied that he wouldn’t be able to pass it. (Abbott reports that Donaghy denied Vercher’s claim, saying he’d “absolutely” agreed to take another polygraph test, with this caveat: “I just want the questions to be very clear about what fixing a game is and what fixing a game is not. I don’t want to end up having a problem with that. As far as, did I fix games? I absolutely did not fix games.”)

For Vercher, the possibility that Donaghy wouldn’t have passed the polygraph test threw their entire business relationship into question.
“How could I have been so STUPID?!?” Vercher writes. “I completely bought his entire bunch of crap! The idea of him being an addict. The idea that he wanted to make an impact in the world and show his kids that he was a good man. The idea that he was anything other than a creep that had just used me to try and keep the Feds off of his back for rigging one of the largest sporting enterprises on the planet.”

• Concerned about the polygraph issue, Vercher made moves to get out of her contract with the referee. But, she says in the book, Donaghy caught on to what she was doing after reading a blog post by Benjamin Daniel, Vercher’s estranged brother and former employee.

news_b-ball_shawna_book_cover_051514.jpg
• In the book she refers to a Philadelphia reporter named “Phil” who off the record fed her information about a number of run-ins the former ref had had with local police in both Pennsylvania and in Manatee County. (A May, 2010 story by William Bender of the Philadelphia Daily News quotes Vercher as saying that Donaghy had physically threatened her, claiming he had friends in the Gambino crime family.)

• Vercher claims, as she did in testimony during the 2012 trial, that her assistant, Christal LaFountaine, who had access to a checking account, was ripping her off. Vercher says she’ll never know the full amount, but claims it’s somewhere between $30,000-$100,000. (A Largo police detective named Lara Young countered these charges during the trial; she testified that she had investigated the case and found that such a crime did not occur.)

• In her trial against Donaghy, the judge in the case struck all of her witnesses, and according to Vercher hurried the case along to get it done within a week’s time.

“I am a human being and I definitely trusted the wrong people,” Vercher said during one of two interviews with CL in our Ybor City offices. “I trusted the system a little too blindly and quite frankly didn’t see it coming.”

She says that she still fears Donaghy, and points to a Facebook exchange from this February, in which Donaghy tells a friend, “I am going to chase her for the next 50 years...lol,” and follows up with “her time will come.”

Through his attorney, Donaghy informed CL that he doesn’t want to comment on Vercher’s claims.

The original contract between the pair called for Donaghy to pocket 73 percent of all revenues from book sales, Vercher 27 percent. According to documents filed by Vercher’s attorneys in their appeal, the final accounting showed that while the Department of Justice had determined a ceiling of $51,263 in estimated royalties owed to Donaghy as of November 2010, because of expenses VTi had incurred from unsold books and legal fees dealing with Donaghy, she wound up $28,584 in the red. (Vercher says that with bills still mounting, that figure may be higher now; the attorney figures used for the appeal were “snapshots in time,” and more expenses were later added.)

An economist who testified for Donaghy in court alleged at a minimum that $245,000 in total revenues had come into Vercher’s company, minus expenses. Nick Mooney, Donaghy’s attorney, says there was “no documentary evidence offered at trial by Vercher’s lawyer to support the claim that they had expenses in excess of revenue.”

One fact that both sides agree upon: Donaghy never received a dime from Vercher from sales of Personal Foul.

Vercher claims that she simply didn’t get a fair trial, with Pinellas Circuit Judge Pamela Campbell frequently shooting down her attorney’s objections. Campbell refused to allow any of Vercher’s witnesses to testify because of a tardy disclosure of those witnesses before pre-trial conference.

A review of 2012 trial transcripts shows some cause why the jury may have decided against Vercher. In addition to the testimony of the Largo police detective disputing Vercher’s accusations against LaFountaine, Vercher was also damaged by extensive discussions during the trial of a website she created called TheRealTimDonaghyRevealed.com. For the site, she directed staff members to post articles and incident reports from the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office regarding domestic disturbances at Donaghy’s home, harassing phone calls, and an incident in Delaware County, Pennsylvania in which police charged him with setting fire to a tractor owned by a neighbor, and taking a golf cart owned by that neighbor without permission and driving it into a ravine. [CORRECTION: The Delaware County incident was alleged by Tim Donaghy's neighbor in a complaint to a local country club. No police charges were filed against Donaghy. Creative Loafing apologizes for the error.]

The preparation of such a website was viewed negatively in the courtroom, with one of Vercher’s former employees, Casey Minton, saying she was “uncomfortable with it.”

“Of all the things that Mrs. Vercher says, the jury rejected every bit of it, okay?” says Mooney. “Not me. Not Tim Donaghy. Not Judge Campbell. Six citizens of the community who were selected by this county to serve as jurors. That’s our system.”

In CL’s two conversations with Vercher, the aspiring state representative was confident about successfully appealing the verdict (the case now resides in the District Court of Appeal Second District of Florida), and about her life going forward.

“What pushed me to the point of running for office was the same reason that drives so many people away from politics, which is utter frustration with what I was witnessing,” Vercher said. “I’m just a regular person who has gone through an extraordinary circumstance, and because of that, my hope is if I could show people that I could do that, then they would feel that they could get more involved.”

Her book ends with a detailed chapter of recommendations for changing the justice system based on her own travails. Some sound naïve (the legal system should not be an exclusive club where only people with money have access) but others touch on aspects of current law that only somebody who has been through the system can bring to the fore, such as how criminal and civil records need to be brought into the 21st century and shared among states.

“The guy [Donaghy] made very good use of the fact that there were different police stations in different communities,” she says about the fact that many of his brushes with the law in Pennsylvania were not accessible to her, living in Pinellas County.

But the question is — how does she translate her issues into articulating the hopes and dreams of the voters in HD 67?

“I don’t believe it’s fair to the voters to make this the focus of the campaign,” she says about the recent past. “So once it’s addressed, we intend to focus on the problems that actually face many of the voters in the district.” She does believe, though, that her issues transfer to the community.

She also says she’s being completely transparent about her story. “Voters have a right to know, and organizations who may endorse or just want to know me better as a candidate, we’re providing free electronic copies to anyone who asks for them.”

She says the purpose of writing the book isn’t to make money, but to change parts of the system that as a middle-class white woman she now realizes everyone may have to deal with.

Vercher’s path to the Democratic nomination for the House seat is no gimme. There are undoubtedly some Democrats who hold it against her that she worked for Jeb Bush’s administration in Tallahassee. The radio program she hosted through Genesis Communications was promoted as a “non-partisan call-in,” but she also worked on Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.

She faces two Democrats in her August primary — Stephen Sarnoff, president of the Communications Workers of America Local 3179, and Thomas Ryan, who works for Dairy Mix, a St. Petersburg-based business. Ryan told CL that he believes Vercher is a “fine person,” and doesn’t intend on running a negative campaign against her.

Sarnoff, however, is a different story. He questions Vercher’s Democratic Party bona fides, alluding to her tenure under Jeb Bush as well as her work with AMIkids, a nonprofit alternative school that according to Sarnoff shows that she supports taking money out of public education.

“That’s not my idea of a Democrat,” he says.

And while he’s never heard Vercher's version of events, he has an idea of what happened with Donaghy. “She says that this money I’m making for this guy, I can use it for living expenses, I don’t have to give him a dime. That kind of doesn’t make any sense to me. That shows a kind of character flaw, you know?”

Other voters may decide the same thing — or not. But that may not be Shawna Vercher’s only concern. Her appeal in court may not take place for another year or two.

“If the court process works properly, then all the evidence gets heard, all the witnesses get heard, and the jury makes a decision,” she says, optimistic that when the entire truth comes out, she’ll be exonerated.

That remains to be seen. But in the interim, what will registered Democrats in House District 67 think? That answer will come much sooner.

Good job, Mitch! It is nice to see a well written, well balanced article about politics! That has not been forthcoming from the Tampa Bay Times of late. Shawna deserves to have her story told. When voters get to know her, they will understand that her experience with our justice system can happen to any one of us. It is that same experience that will make Shawna a better advocate for Floridians who simply want fairness in their lives and the lives of family and friends.

What doesn't break you makes you stronger. Shawna is not hiding her experiences but turning them into a positive force; such as taking on the antiquated Florida judicial system. Like Floridians haven't been embarrassed enough by the verdicts of some local "nationally reported" trials. We need strong women in Tallahassee to bring common sense to legislation. Unfortunately, street smarts come from daily battles; some good, some not so good. But a Mom from a middle class family with street smarts, earned common sense, and a will to make life better for all is someone who deserves to be a House Representative. I am looking forward, not back, for a better future. I trust she will work hard to deliver that for us.

It appears from the story that Donaghy, a convicted criminal, also took advantage of Shawna by misleading her about the restrictions on publishing his book in a deal he had with the US Attorney's office. He also apparently misled her about taking a lie detector test. I've had enough interactions with Shawna to trust her version of what happened.

I have been a longtime friend of Shawna’s and marginally involved as this case unfolded. I had been prepared to be called by the lead detective to give my account of the story as well as a witness in the trial. I was astonished that neither happened and can attest first hand to the injustice of the trial. I am so glad that Shawna’s side of story is finally coming out. As a former citizen of Florida and as an American citizen, this story terrifies me. I think we all assume that the legal system is structured for our protection (both as individuals and small business owners). This case, if one takes the time to educate oneself about the facts, exposes the major fallacies of this belief. I don’t care too much about partisan views. All I know is, if you are interested in Moving Florida Forward you should get to know Shawna!

I applaud Shawna for her upfront openness to tell her story. She is not the same person who entered a contract with a self-professed “innocent” criminal. She is strong, wise and understands weaknesses in our justice system. I don’t understand why Steve Sarnoff is attacking Shawna’s work record and questioning if Shawna is a Democrat. Does Steve only work for Democrats? Shawna will be a hard working representative for Floridians. We need more common-sense representatives like Shawna in Tallahassee.

I don't believe that information should change anyone's mind about Shawna representing them. In business you have to work with people with different views. That doesn't taint anyone.

Shawna is a wonderful woman with some very common sense fixes for Floridian problems and deserves a chance to put them forward.

I know Shawna and her family. I have read her book and I found it not only interesting but also invigorating. She has handled what happened to her with dignity and a desire to correct what she has perceived as blatant problems within the Florida judicial system. Florida, in my opinion, is a state whose judicial system is rigged for white, male, wealthy clients. She is a middle class mother with a great marriage and tremendous commitment to her child. She, because of her book, been upfront about the setbacks she has experienced and her desire to "un-rig" the system. She will be a fresh face and voice in Tallahassee. Read the end of the book and see what she stands for - for being the most important state. In a state in which progressiveness is seen as almost criminal, Shawna stands for moving progressively away from doing business as usual.

Looks to me as if Vercher was caught with her hand in the cookie jar. Vercher seems to have issues with family, co workers and clients. I would keep an eye on this appeal and see what happens but she looks GUILTY to me. I did some research and it seems like Vercher keeps digging a hole she will never be able to get out of, and will drag her family into it with her by trying to avoid paying what she stole. Only 37 years old and she ruined her life over 200k, she should have the Donaghy the money instead of stealing it or claiming someone else stole it.

And td does not stand for Terrific Dude. It stands for Total d**ckhead! How can you possibly trust anything out of a mouth that had to be locked in a cage for better than a year?

Forrest Gump's Mom was right ... stupid is, as stupid does .... who you gonna believe ... Vercher or ALL of the other people & evidence against her ??? ... if you read the transcripts of the Trial, Vercher claimed she was an undercover operative investigating Donaghy on behalf of the FBI, US Attorney, CIA and Secret Service ... wow -- no matter how you look at it ... that is terrifying !!!!! All of the witnesses and evidence against her included her friends, co-workers, the police, the US Attorneys Office, her own emails, bank records and her business records ... to attack the Florida legal system and say she was treated unfairly is equally laughable ... check the court docket ... Vercher had plenty of lawyers that she hired (and paid for them with Donaghy's money) and used the legal system to avoid her debt (as she continues to do) ... this story has nothing to do with an injustice .... its about honesty & integrity and she has NONE .... plane, pure and simple ... good luck to the voters in the district and God save us all in Florida if she is elected !!!

I met Shawna before the "wrath of Tim Donaghy' occurred. Shawna is a professional, family oriented, well educated and respected woman. The word there is "woman". Tim Donaghy does not work well with strong women. Especially women that know when they are being "taken" and are smart and strong enough to draw their finger in the sand. She knows when to get out the sandbox when dealing with people that have moral and mental issues. She is a mentor to me and my children and one of the best mom's I know. She is also committed to her husband and to the people of Florida. I look forward to seeing this fresh face with a positive message to lead men, women and families into the future of our great state of Florida. The negative messages posted on this site are most likely from her stalker. I feel for her and I'm so proud that she has the education and grace to know how much she is appreciated, respected and loved. Go get em Shawna!!

I am a good friend of the ex wife and the four girls. The first check that Tim Donaghy wrote to his attorney after being questioned for gambling on his own basketball games came from his children's college account. They have no money for college and will be paying off student loans because he left his family with very little funds. Who is this man that states he is doing everything he can in order to pay for his children's college? Not someone I would believe, spend time thinking about or certainly vote for.

First, Vercher Revealed Commenter = Stalker = Tim Donaghy, you're not fooling anyone.

Next, just to set the record straight, the only time ANY actual evidence was presented was to the US attorney's office to pay towards Donaghys restitution, and they agreed 100% with Shawna.

Donaghy admitted in front of Shawna and at least one other witness ( who confirmed this in writing) that he did in fact fix NBA games for the mob. This admission is what has led to his constant harassment of her for years ( as stated in the article, he says he will stalk her for another 50 years).

Shawna is a fighter who does not back down to bully's. Once elected, you will see the same fighter who will fight hard for the people in her district and in Florida every single day.

I am someone who was involved with the ordeal from the start, I worked in the office of VTi. Vercher had NO PLANS to pay Donaghy from the start. We all testified against her and were in fear for what she would do after we went to court. The police are well aware of the false police reports she filed against Donaghy and the lies she tried to spread to the press, which was a main reason for the big judgment against her. Vercher doesn't speak to her family over the fact that they wouldn't lie for her, we all jumped off her ship because we knew it was sinking like the Titanic.

It seems if there were laws broken by Shawna, charges would have been filed. In fact, none were.
There were other clients and none of them had these issues. Being the "Jerssey Girl" I am. I can spot
a player a mile away. There are not many southern folk who have experienced NE school of hard knocks. But the facts speak loud & clear. No laws were broken by Shawna, just a trumped up lawsuit, that will soon be overturned. I support this candidate and will work to help see she is elected to office.

First, the Ref is a felon. The only NBA referee to ever go to jail. That should tell you something.
Second, if the court system (I can't call it justice) really worked, I can think of a bunch of cases (OJ, Zimmerman) when the system failed, including in the Vercher case.
Third, as an author, 10K books will make you about $70,000 of net profit. It costs money to print, ship, distribute, market and sell those books --- and it comes out of the $70K.
Fourth, any profit from book sales should have gone to the Ref's court ordered restitution, not the Ref.
Fifth, Mitch thanks for writing a story to give more limelight to the Ref. Good job, Mitch. (I bet you are thrilled because you got so many comments, but most of them are just the Ref under various alias).

And Mr. Donaghy has the right to chase Vercher for the rest of her to collect the money that he is rightfully owed ... just like the IRS and Pinellas County Tax Collector !!!

Hey Jersey Girl -- what exit do you live on ??? Please go back to the arm pit of NY where you belong .... if you know how to read, please look at the transcripts ... Vercher broke plenty of laws ... blamed everyone else for her fraud ... Vercher falsely accused one of her friends / employee's of stealing the money .... the Largo Police Department fully investigated Vercher's allegations and determined that ALL of the allegations were false / identifying all of the money that Vercher spent on furniture for her office, beauty products for herself ... the list is endless .... we live in a civilized society with a system of laws ... not a delusional, self promoting thief ....

Second, so what ... those are criminal cases (one of which was in California) .. and while Vercher is a criminal, it was a civil lawsuit ...

Third, your an idiot ... Vercher sold more than $300,000 worth of books and all of the expenses for printing were taken out by Lightning Source BEFORE sending money to VTi for Vercher to steal ...

Fourth, your wrong again .... if you know how to read, check out the LAW, you putz ...

Fifth, thanks Mitch ... appreciate you bringing this thief to our attention ... hope that you post the transcripts so all of Vercher's cronies can read for themselves and learn what Vercher's other friends have learned -- its only a matter of time before the Vercher Snake turns on them too ....

Vercher Revealed = Stalker = Tim Donaghy. Now, Vercher revealled (almost clever enough to make it seem like the same commentor, that's probably someone different, not much brighter, but different writing style, I guess Donaghy needed to phone a friend after his standard bunk about supporting his kids fell apart).

Actually, she doesn't speak to her family because they didn't want to acknowledge her brothers drug problem and the violent threats he made toward her (in writing no less). Ben, I hope you've received treatment for your drug problem, but judging by your posts, it doesn't seem like it.

It's all in her book, everyone who's read it knows who you are, what you've done and said, and why (luckily, you were kind enough to put it all in writing to avoid any confusion).

Bullies hate it when someone stands up to them, as you can see by the negative posts here. Shawna will always stand up to bullies, and when elected, she will bring that same fight to Tallahassee.
