The Greatest Cam Newton Conspiracy Theory Of The All
I’ve read, heard, and seen all of the Cam Newton explanations and conspiracy theories out there, but there is only one that is so crazy and so massive in scale that it just might be true.
This is a story that spans decades and involves US Senators, powerful millionaires, coaches, bribery, players, billion dollar banks, million dollar charities, boosters, money laundering, the FBI, secret wiretaps…and of course Cam Newton. The complete story is over on the TigerDroppings Message Board, but for those that don’t have the hour or so needed to digest it all I’ll give you a quick overview below.
The story centers around Bobby Lowder, the former Chairman of a bankrupt $25 billion Colonial Bank, who also happens to be a major Auburn booster. The rumor is Lowder secretly controls the Auburn athletic department, has been the force behind the firing and hiring of the last three Auburn, and has a pay for play scheme dating back to the 90′s.
The bank whose board and shareholders is full of Auburn boosters has been under investigation by the FBI for fraud, embezzlement, misappropriation of funds, and money laundering since last year. It was during this investigation that the FBI wiretapped Lowder, Milton McGregor (the one Auburn booster TMZ mentions) and others connected to the bank…and are thought to have overheard conversations about the paying and buying Auburn football players.
Now I know McGregor claimed through his lawyer last week that he wasn’t involved in paying Cam Newton, but let me remind you that he is also claiming he didn’t have any part in bribing a US Senator as well…something a mountain of evidence and the FBI says he did.
Yeah this is a shit storm and even if it’s not true, it’d make a great movie.
