Reader: Tom Martino, bankrupt radio host, will be great speaker at wealth-building convention

Shortly after Troubleshooter Tom Martino detailed his bankruptcy, and the alleged $78 million liability racked up in real-estate dealings, he was announced as a featured speaker for October's Real Estate Investors Wealth Building Convention. In response to our post about the latter, one of the convention's organizers defended Martino's inclusion despite recent events.
