PR firm dumps real estate guru accused of helping clients launder drug money

Self-proclaimed Phoenix real estate guru Tanya Marchiol, charged with helping clients launder drug money, has been dropped by her media relations firm, Goldman McCormick.

In announcing the move, company officials said they “believe in innocent until proven guilty; however, based on the severity of the charges in the indictment, we can no longer maintain a working business relationship with Ms. Marchiol.”

Marchiol’s website notes her “weekly appearances on FOX, FOX Business, CNN, CNBC, CBS and HGTV. While many are losing millions in an unstable economy, Tanya is thriving and garnering incredible returns for her clients and her company.”

A judge released Marchiol from custody Thursday under GPS monitoring while she awaits trial on condition that she not leave Arizona or work as a real estate agent. Source: kpho.com
