Report: Brian Mast linked to Florida company under investigation by federal regulators

Rep. Brian Mast has been linked to a Florida marketing company under investigation by federal regulators, according to POLITICO.
World Patent Marketing and its owner has been accused by the Federal Trade Commission of defrauding clients of millions of dollars. On Thursday, POLITICO reported Mast, a Treasure Coast Republican, was appointed to the company’s advisory board in February 2016, before the   company’s owner, Scott J. Cooper, donated more than $5,000 to his campaign.
Mast told POLITICO he never received compensation from the company, and became aware he became a member of the board through a press release someone else sent him.
According to POLITICO, a Florida district court agreed with an FTC request to temporarily free the company’s assets earlier this month. The Federal Trade Commission claims Cooper, through World Patent Marketing and Desa Industries, charged customers thousands of dollars to patent and market their inventions.
