Crack Cocaine and Prostitution Lead to FDLE Probe Into County Commissioner

HERNANDO – Last week, RNRF received an anonymous tip alleging that one of our County Commissioners was at the center of a 2013 FDLE criminal investigation.

We immediately requested a full report from the FDLE, which pointed the finger at Hernando County Commission Nick Nicholson, who may have had sexual relations with a prostitute and even possible knowledge of crack cocaine dealing.

According to reports, on January 9th 2013, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office received information of criminal conduct perpetrated by Nicholson.

Hernando County Detective George Loydgren and Special Agents Neal, Horianopoulos, and Stefan with the FDLE, initiated a probe to investigate the accusations.

On December 27, 2012, the Sheriff’s Office conducted a child abuse investigation on 45-year-old Kimberly K. Losurdo, after her child became violently ill from ingesting crack cocaine.

Losurdo was arrested and charged with child abuse and DCF took custody of her child.

During the investigation, a confidential informant identified Commissioner Nicholson as someone who had an intimate relationship with Losurdo. The informant also stated that Nicholson would pay between $100 and $150 for sex and then leave.

Adding to the already scandalous accusations, the informant said Nicholson would drive Losurdo to different residences, with the knowledge that she was purchasing illegal narcotics.

The informant blames Nicholson for giving her false hopes of a relationship and aiding in her addiction to crack cocaine, by giving her money to purchase it.

On September 20, 2013 the FDLE interviewed Nicholson at their Regional Operations Center in Tampa, where Nicholson answered a battery of questions concerning his relationship with Losurdo.

During the interview, Nicholson denied knowing anyone by the name of Kimberly Losurdo, but after viewing a photo lineup, Nicholson recognized Losurdo as a woman he knew as “Jen.” Nicholson admitted to visiting several adult night clubs in Pasco County and says he may have met “Jen” at Calendar Girls, but he wasn’t sure.

Investigators asked Nicholson how many times she visited Losurdo at her home and he replied “I was there a couple of times.”

Nicholson denied ever paying for sex with Losurdo but did say he gave her money for “food and other stuff.”

When investigators asked about Losurdo’s drug abuse, Nicholson denied having knowledge of the problem.

On November 12, 2013 the FDLE received a letter from State Attorney Brad King, stating that the case against Nicholson lacked sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against him.

We attempted to contact Nicholson at his office today, but he did not return our calls.

During a phone interview with Sheriff Al Nienhuis, he said “I could not ignore the allegations against Commissioner Nicholson but I thought it would be best to turn it over to an outside agency to conduct the investigation.”

Nick Nichols Investigation

CORRECTION: Earlier were reported that the Sheriff’s Office had no knowledge of the investigation. To be more clear, our statement referred to the information NOT being provided to the Public Information Officer for media release. Since the investigation did not result in the arrest of Commissioner Nicholson, the media would not receive notification of the investigation.

  • I live with Mr Nicholson as I rent a room at his house. I did not know anything about him prior to moving in.

    He is still upto his same old tricks. He doesn’t have memory problems. He has alcohol induced memory loss… from being a drunk. He still is seeing questionable females n 2 live here also in the house. He is rude and disrespectful and knows how to bend the truth to deflect attention from facts n truths of his wrong doings. Soon as I am able to move I will be as it was not made aware to me b4 I moved in his county job the past stripper situations or the heavy drinking n hookers.

    He has a county issued iPhone that sits home n rings all day I’m told it’s for people to contact him and voice their opinions and concerns but yet he never gives a s*** to look at it except to pick it up and delete the voicemails without listening to them so that the phone stopped making noise it literally sits on the counter plugged in and ring up to 1 maybe as high as ten times a day and never pays attention to it he does not belong in office. He does not care about people and I think someone more deserving of this position should have the job instead of him his main focus is on females and going to sleep waking up going to work get drunk females and then the same thing all over again the next day. And the only thing I can stand up for is he did not know that girl’s real name which is very common with strip clubs and strippers often times they have stage names and lie to you about the real name for many reasons cuz most of these girls have customers that are crazy stalkers that they don’t want them to have their Facebook pages or know their real names so they can’t contact family members guys who come in the strip clubs are not always the most trustworthy normal people the girls do it to protect themselves so some of them can live normal lives outside of that messed up job all Pasco strip clubs are whorehouses that’s the only way they make money and the sheriff’s department comes in and collects money for whatever reason and that’s why they leave the clubs alone the sheriff’s office in Pasco will go to all the clubs on a certain day to cause a little bit of a problem and then the rest of the time they’re never there while I because it makes money for the county it makes big money so they leave them alone how many shootings go on at strip clubs there’s always drug dealing going on in strip clubs but yet if you call and report anything going on at the strip club the police never go there unless they’re called for a violent crime there are girls overdosing and dying in the strip clubs but you never see it in the newspaper why is that and I say that because I have a friend who works in the strip club and I spend time in there and I know what really goes on but yet they’re going to sit here and harass people who don’t run a business like this and give regular people tickets and arrest them for small minor crimes but yet the strip clubs get to basically get away with everything except for that one day a year or two days a year that they come in and pretend to do something about the problem and all reality they need to spend more time straightening up establishments like those to make our County safer I would you better job as a sheriff’s officer or a councilman knowing the underlying truths and actually trying to fix things from the view of somebody who knows what really goes on behind closed doors.

  • Hi Tom, just saw your message. As I told you Monday my friend is now handling the matter with an attorney out of Tampa. He wants to have a press conference with Channels 8, 9, 10. If you want to attend I will tell him to contact you with the info. That way you will be the first to have the story in Hernando County. He is out of town until end of Sept. But if it is okay with you, I’ll pass your info to him. Thanks again for your concern.

  • Read between the lines people. HCSO knew about the situation, they tipped Tom off because of their perceived disrepect by Nicholson to Sherriff Nogood.

    • “The informant blames Nicholson for giving her false hopes of a relationship and aiding in her addiction to crack cocaine, by giving her money to purchase it.”

      If I had to guess who the “informant” was, My guess would be Kimberly!
      And maybe she is the “anonymous” who tipped RNRF about this subject??
      Stranger things have happened.

      Monday, 14 September 2015, 7:22 pm
      • And maybe she was trying to blackmail him for $$ to keep her
        mouth shut, he in turn refused?
        So she tips off RNRF?

        You never know!

    Monday, 14 September 2015, 8:05 am
  • He has a family. His son is grown. Yes, Mr. Nicholson may be a problem but one of the biggest problems in this county is HCSO. If the state doesnt investigate them soon, we are all doomed, especially those who have spoken out against them.
    And remember Lemons has your email and name and yuup Im sure he’d have no prob sharing with the corropt HCSO just to get more favors from them. Smh

  • I wounded what his family and children are thinking that’s if he has family.

    Sunday, 13 September 2015, 11:08 pm
  • Remember the Sheriff is still negotiating a big budget increase with Nicholsen. I’d bet that tip came from the HCSO.

    Sunday, 13 September 2015, 10:56 pm
    • All of a sudden this anonymous tip comes in and I’ve noticed a few deputies making not so nice comments on the articles about this on Facebook. No matter where this tip came from, the voters should have been made aware of this prior to the last election. I don’t know many who would vote for a man who has to stoop so low to pay a stripper to have sex with him, a stripper whom he claims he doesn’t know her real name. Sounds like he paid a prostitute to me, and took her to buy her crack, and admitted to taking her kids out to eat. He claims to not know her name? I call bull***t on that one as well as much of what he’s said in this investigation. He is certainly a main part of the problem.

  • My family’s been here since the early 1830’s; and my education, life experiences and career are impeccable.

    You have no idea what you’re talking about; just regurgitating the same ignorant BS that makes those of your ilk feel self-important.

    Sunday, 13 September 2015, 10:54 pm
    • I know a hell of a lot more than you would like to admit and you are the only one who is disputing the truth as to what I have posted. Weeki Watcher, where did your family come from prior to the early 1830’s? Oh, not Hernando County? Damn transplants who think they know it all when in fact they are the main crux of the problem. Your kind will never admit that it’s those stupid, good old boys and girls who have helped turn Hernando County into the hellhole it’s become. It wasn’t that long ago that there was a mass exit of the longtime office holders. S**t was hitting the fan and our corrupt Sheriff tries to keep a lot of stuff hidden. TRUTH!

      Monday, 14 September 2015, 9:55 am
  • Weeki Watcher, the damn Yankees that so many locals have dealt with and supported. You think Jim Kimbrough isn’t corrupt? Come one, he tried to sell the Sun Trust building to the county. I know him well. There’s a lot of good old boys, born and bred here, multi generations that are involved. Don’t blame the damn yankees. It’s that money that has kept this county going and the locals who have helped get the county leaders where they are. It’s all politics. I’m a transplant who’s been here for a long time and I’ve watched it transpire to what it is today. Florida education is some of the poorest in the nation. Get an education and stop being so much of what’s wrong with our country. The hatred is horrible.

    Your post is comical in it’s 180 from reality.

    Most of the troubles we face in the county today were imported by the damnyankees.

    • Skinny please educate yourself. It’s this uneducated southern mentality that has gotten Hernando County where it is now. With the former attorney general Jim McCollum being from Hernando County, that’s why they’ve gotten away with this type of corruption for too long. He along with Dick Nugent could have straightened this county out, instead they didn’t care about the commoner and padded their pockets with our tax dollars.

    Sunday, 13 September 2015, 7:44 am
  • O.M.G! It just goes to show you that people would rather “BITCH” about something than fix it! If you have a problem with any of the County Commissioners, “Quit Your Bichin’ and do something about it! Many of these commissioners have been in office for years. Many come from other places, and they have made drastic changes to Hernando County over the years. THAT! is the key words, “over the years”. The County Commissioners work at the pleasure of the taxpayers of Hernando County. All it takes to change the way our commissioners run the county government is to “VOTE” the ones you have a problem with, out of office! So, if you don’t like the ordinances, taxes, schools, budgets, business restrictions, permit requirements,ruls and regulations of your county or anything else the county commissioners control and they won’t respect your wishes, as voting residents of Hernando County, then get off your asses, campaign for, support and VOTE for someone that you feel that can do a better job! REMEMBER, any Government is a self perpetuating business whose general existance is based on a pyramid financial structure. In order to acheive “growth” there has to be a consensus of opinion as to where we want to be at some future point. What is the vision for the county in 10-20 years. To acheive this goal requires people, paying taxes. These people have to want to move and make their homes here. They have to be able to find a job, to support their lifestyle and pay taxes. This creates more home construction which attracts more people, which require more jobs, to pay more taxes and so forth and so on until such time as the county is either saturated or there are not enough jobs to support the people already here that pay taxes. This is where this county has been wrong for years. Because of the rules and regulations the county imposes on new businesses, no one wants to build new industries in our county. Small businesses face so many rules, license requirements and permits, many can’t afford to start building a business here. When the county can no longer provide jobs for growth, the pyramid base size stops growing. The only way to pay for all the plans that the county has initiated or have committed to build, are to “Raise Taxes” on the people that are already here. In order to stop this escalation, we have to have leaders that will not only attract new people but make Hernando County attractive to industry, manufacturing, small businesses and the right type of investors, to balance the counties growth. We need fewer places to spend money and more places to make money! If our current County Commissioners are not up to the task, it is YOU!, the taxpayers/voters that have the power to make the changes that are necessary. When you see wasted county money, ie; sidewalks to nowhere, and policies that hurt the people, like redlight cameras that feed the cities/counties “discretionary” funds, make your wishes known at election time. If you can do that and extend this idea all the way to Washington DC and dump/replace the do nothing idiots in the House and Senate, we might be able to stop this lunacy and get our cities, counties, states and country back to an America we are proud of!

    • Yeah, ok. Why did the ELECTED Sheriff not find the need to tell the public about this when it happened? His PIO’s have been known to send out media releases to harm others reputations, with not giving the truth in them. I bet trashy ass Nick would not be in office, if the public was made aware of this BEFORE we voted. I say vote all of these asshole out of office and let’s take back our county. This place has turned into a complete hellhole run by a bunch of crooks. Self serving assholes to boot. We had a previous sheriff who is now a congressman who could have taken the bull by the horns, but he’s proven himself to be as corrupt as the others he covered up for. Al isn’t any better. When law enforcement does selective enforcement, we have a huge issue. It’s who you know and apparently who you blow that gets people where they are today.

  • “Crack Cocaine and Prostitution lead to FDLE probe into County Commissioner” With a memory Problem!! Who elected this poor excuse to public office.?? It is time that the voters in this county place their mark on the person not the PARTY. Tom, a job will done. Question, what happen to the main stream media are they part of this cover up? And to you new comers who find nothing but fault in this County perhaps you should start looking to move. Rather stay an help make change to the betterment of the majority we would loss very little.

  • @tiffiny – I agree, he raised my property taxes by approx $200.00
    or more a year, WHY???
    I knew it wasn’t because of home improvements, because I hadn’t
    made any improvements!!!!

    I called the tax office to ask WHY, their answer to me was
    that all Hernando County residents taxes were raised.

    I am still scratching my head wondering WHY so much!!!!!!
    It still makes NO sense to me!!!

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 4:39 pm
    • They raised taxes because they needed more money for something (who knows what) and all they have to do is raise our taxes to get it. They never bother to find the money elsewhere. Why do that when you can just raise taxes.

  • It’s funny how county commissioner refused to meet with the sheriff and all of a sudden this story comes out. What a bunch of lil bitche’s. I believe he should be replaced but with the Sheriff also this story should hit the headlines and they should investigate all these POS. SORRY TO TALK ABOUT YOUR DADDY SUPER HERO SHERIFF TOM.

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 2:03 pm
  • The questions is what is going to be done about it. I wonder who else is behind this and why the Sheriff Office hid this from the public, I guess it did not happen in South Brooksville??

      Saturday, 12 September 2015, 12:31 pm
  • You people keep refering to the commissioners as good olé boys and rednecks. If you check they aren’t from here. I’ve been called a redneck and cracker, each time I reply damn right and proud of it.

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 12:15 pm
    • One of the commissioners son is a deputy sheriff here too.

      Saturday, 12 September 2015, 12:23 pm
      • Jim Adkins kid is a deputy. Jim isn’t running again but he endorsed someone almost as bad as Nicholson, Jim Russell, a RINO up to his eyeballs with the problems at the airport.

        Saturday, 12 September 2015, 4:37 pm
        • Dave Russell sucks and has gotten away with too much for far too long. He will not get my vote. He said he wasn’t running, then said he was running (and that’s because there’s probably other hidden things he needs to handle). He just needs to bow out and we need new, fresh blood as county commissioners. Dave Russell has helped destroy Hernando County. As for Jim Adkins, he and his son are both very pleasant people to be around.

          Sunday, 13 September 2015, 10:33 am
      • Both of them are outstanding men.

        Saturday, 12 September 2015, 6:34 pm
        • You must not know them the way I do. I like Jim but he has let his ties to the fire department get in the way of good judgement. The ambulance transport service should have been privatized years ago, saving the taxpayers at least $20 million a year. Russell is too liberal to be a Republican…maybe a Socialist.

          Sunday, 13 September 2015, 10:48 pm
  • Our County Commissioners need replaced!

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 11:42 am
  • Wow, the FDLE report is interesting. Maybe there was “insufficient evidence” for criminal charges, but Nicholson sure showed himself to be a liar, and not a very good one. First it was “never, then “once”, then “I have memory problems”. And of course the money wasn’t for sex. It never is, right?

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 11:15 am
    • This is why Hernando County is as corrupt as it is. The higher ups get away with all kinds of s**t and FDLE never finds in favor of the complainant when it comes to officials in this county. There has been many crimes committed by officials and they always get swept under the rug. Nick Nicholson got away with this because of his lies. This needed to be brought to light by the Sheriff’s department two years ago. They surely are the first to not be fully honest with their press releases and this is something the voters should have known. Glad I didn’t vote for this nasty, skanky old man and I promise I’ll not vote for him again, if he has the audacity to run in 2016. This will not be forgotten about.

      Saturday, 12 September 2015, 12:04 pm
  • Maybe there is something to this, maybe not. All I know is that Nicholson seriously lacks the temperment to run a meeting. He has been very disappointing as a commissioner. If there is anything to this mess, he’s toast.

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 10:54 am
  • This is exactly why I don’t vote corruption starts with the higher ups Really you don’t need my vote Slime bags

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 10:34 am
    • Maybe the lack of people caring enough to vote is how this slime gets in office in the first place?

  • I find it odd the timing of this “tip” being right near the second budget hearing. Nothing like playing dirty. Very sad that this was never brought out during his run for commissioner but all of a sudden is now. Someone said it correctly, everyone has skeletons in their closet, however we choose to pick on someone because they came out. Wonder what others have in their closet.

    I do believe there are a lot of bad things going on in county government, but also believe the same in the sheriffs office. There’s unprofessionalism everywhere including the dept directors, employees and county documents. How about you look there Tom. You’d probably have stories for days.

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 10:17 am
  • @Tom G. The article states ” The Sheriff’s Office says they were unaware of the investigation, until we brought it to their attention earlier today. At this time, it’s not known if Sheriff Al Nienhuis will provide a statement regarding this unexpected development.” However, the report clearly states Det Loydgren of HCSO was at the meeting which took place at…..Where…..HCSO. As I said in my initial comment, HCSO knew all along, so why is the story pulled out now? Do I have an ax to grind? Nope. I’M just amused that HCSO gets to choose who they do and do not arrest based on their personal feelings. Axe to grind, nope just want justice for my friend who got the hell beat out of her….but we all know that isnt going to happen thanks to the screw up by HCSO.

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 10:08 am
  • Oh lawdy….if this was “hidden” for two years, who knows what else Hernando County is hiding. Sick pig is what this jerk for a commissioner is. Who screws a crack whore and pays for that nasty stuff? I mean, I know where I put my thang and at least I know who I’m doing.

    Saturday, 12 September 2015, 9:57 am

  • VERY INTERESTING… Everyone has skeletons in there closet but wow… can you find out what caused the scar on her neck??

    • Looks like a thyroid surgical scar to me. I don’t think that any news paper or source is going to be able to find out some ones medical history. There are laws to protect us all.

  • Perfect! Isn’t this the ass clown that was so smug and disrespectful to the Sheriff during last weeks County Commission meeting? Just wondering why the state attorney decided to not pursue the charges. Oh let me guess,,,, because it was an outspoken, rude ass, tool of a man that thinks he is more important than he really is and currently holds a county commission chair position. More of the protect the good ole boy,,,I am glad this was brought up. I certainly hope the commission asks for his resignation! Remember people,,, we have the responsibility and the power to keep ass clowns like him out of office, by VOTING!!! ( please vote responsibly).

    • I couldn’t agree more. Hernando County is and has been corrupt for so long, I don’t think they can ever get this bad reputation worldwide cleared up. Rednecks running the county and a commissioner who screws crack whores while paying for her crack. FDLE finds nothing wrong with this as with anything else they have every investigated in Hernando County. Glad I moved out of there and one day, all hell will break lose there.

  • Tom, you said “the Sheriff’s Office says they were unaware of the investigation, until we brought it to their attention earlier today.” How is that possible when it is clearly stated in the report that the meeting was beld at HCSO and one of theor detectives was present. I wl tell you that Nick Nicholson is not a friend of mine, in fact I dont personally care for him, but this article is so blatantly slanted in favor of HCSO it isn’t funny. The timing of this article is suspicious. … I was going to comment on a story you sent out earliear today about domestic disturbances and arrest. Do you want a good story. Ask HCSO why they allowed a healthy 34 year old man beat the hell out of a 59 year old disabled woman and they didnt arrest him. Get your head out of your butt, write the news and stop pandering to HCSO or tell the people of the county why your view is slanted so much in favor of a sheriff’s office which is little more than an overweight group of cowboys. If you want details of the beating of the 59 yr old woman, contact me. I will fill you in. You willbe interested tu know that HCSO knew they screwed up big time. They later called the lady and STRONGLY URGED HER To contact the states attorneys office to press charges because they failed to do their job and realized it wil not abode well for them if Mr.Hoffman were to kill the next victim he attacks. And trust me, be will attack someone else and they may not be as lucky. Can you say Lawsuit if he kills someone and HCSO hand a chance to intervene and didnt. Cha Ching. hcso Needs to be investigated.

    • montybaby…I agree 100%. I previously stopped commenting on the bias stories that are printed here. One reason just so happens to be because of the continuous slanted views that are presented here, and the other is because of Mr.Lemons obvious lack of human compassion when printing stories, and photos, that are used solely for his own personal gain (profit), at the cost of sensationalizing some poor families loss, or personal tragedy. In my opinion, Hernando county government has got away with sweeping this kind of illegal activity under the rug for way too many years.

    • HCSO is very well known for covering up for deputies who abuse their power and injure people. Those same jerks then get promoted. This has been going on for years within HCSO. Look at Jim Powers and his rank now. He got in trouble years ago for STEALING from the HCSO, while helping a buddy who was not a cop equip his car with law enforcement equipment. Nothing happened to him, instead he’s climbed the ranks and sits on his big, fat ass. Then you have deputies who seriously injured an elderly man who died less than a year later and they got promoted as well. Deputies shoot people in the back, killing them and get promoted. Our law enforcement agencies in this county are merely a joke to real law enforcement agencies, except the FDLE and FBI. They help keep things covered up. I’m disgusted as to what I see in Florida.
