<<< Obie Wilchcombe, MP for Bimini.

Nassau, Bahamas: We’ve learned…Obie Wilchcombe, the former Minister of Tourism, was one of three people in the Bahamas who was arrested by Bahamian police in connection with an alleged $20 million extortion plot against John Travolta, local authorities tell TMZ.

Wilchcombe was a very close friend of the Travolta family. On Larry King’s show, he talked about how the family was coping with Jett’s death.

Just yesterday, he told the media, “I thought it was a despicable act. One person should not destroy the character of the country.”

On Larry King’s show, Wilchcombe talked about the intimate details of the funeral home and the cremation, etc.

Wilchcombe has said no politician was part of the plot and said only one person was involved. Yet two of the three people arrested were politicians — Wilchcombe, a Senator in Parliament named Pleasant Bridgewater and an ambulance driver named Tarino Lightbourne. Lightbourn reportedly was one of the EMTs who tried to revive Jett.

Wilchcombe is a current member of Parliament for Bimini.

The videos link above show Wilchcombe calling into “Larry King Live” on the day Jett died and Lightburne doing an interview with “Inside Edition” the next week.

  1. One thing I find strange is that none one is talking about how serious these allegations are! We cannot blame politics on people who go out and commit crimes as a result of GREED! However, I hear the PC knew about the investigation and did nothing. Now he playing like he just found out. I guess he happy because as his party sinks he will remain Leader. See BP, we been telling the PLP long ago to get rid of him!

    BP if PC dont do nothing, i am done with the PLP. He cant come playing cute. Heads need to roll and Obie needs to resign his seat. If he dont in a few days Perry needs to man up and ask for his resignation. Period.

    All of this is based on if this stuff is true. Nobody is even stopping to think about this as another smear campaign by the FNM. They did the same thing with Anna Nicole and now its John Travolta. When we know the facts, then we can go and give Perry ultimatums and I will join you in saying time for him to man up but until then, lets not go on and convict people over rumors man.

    The FNM is counting on us to do just that and in this stupid country of ours, you only have to be accused of something for people to throw you under the bus.

  3. For months we’ve been telling bloggers here online that the PLP needs to be gutted, that it needs to be retools, that it needs a new leader, but no we have been ignored and attacked on all sides for our candid rebuke against the current leadership of the PLP. This is just a latest firestorm of many, and guess what, WE ON BAHAMAS PRESS ALSO BELIEVES THAT SOMEONE AT THE TOP OF THE PLP HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH ALL THIS, JUST ASK THE ‘PUSSY CAT’!

    As he and his old law partner Hubert keep the PLP preoccupied with SCANDALS and EMBARESSMENT, the longer can both he and Hubert collect those huge pensions with their tired selves. This is time for the people to stand up and DEMAND CHANGE! Not just speak it, BUT CAUSE IT TO HAPPEN!

    THE PLP, THE FNM and yes the ENTIRE COUNTRY NEEDS CHANGE!
