Lois Frankel Secondary Story
As Mayor, Lois Frankel was a key figure in orchestrating a deal with a company, Digital Domain, bringing them to West Palm Beach, securing $10 million in cash of taxpayer funds for the company and providing them with a $10 million prime piece of downtown property. Five months after Frankel gave the green light to Digital Domain's downtown project, Frankel took $20,000 in campaign contributions from executives at the company.
Digital Domain has now gone bankrupt and the city of West Palm Beach will have to fight in bankruptcy court to get the land back.
After learning The Palm Beach Post was going to do a story on the contributions, Frankel promised to give the campaign contributions to charity
