|Worst Democrat in Florida Legislature: Daphne Campbell|
|HIT MAP TO ENLARGE|
She just sent out a notice to constituents claiming she got funds for her district... only trouble is $650,000 of what she takes credit for was vetoed by the governor. She never even requested those funds! She is just taking credit for what other entities/Rep's applied for - that happen to be in her district. Ick!!!
In her campaign report she got $500 the same day from Genting Casinos and Anheuser Bush Beer. She also got $500 from Dosal Tobacco. Of course Lobbyist Ron Book and family gave her money. She also got $500 from a PAC called The Committee for Florida Justice Reform (she is the only Democrat to get money from this PAC - KOCH brothers gave this PAC money).
She is a favorite of the Christian Family Coalition enough said with that one.
She and her son were accused of defrauding Medicaid. From the Miami Herald:
"The state attorney general’s office is tracing hundreds of thousands in payments by the state to group home companies that were run by Campbell and her husband, according to sources close to the investigation...Neither Campbell, 54, a Democrat whose House district covers northeast Miami-Dade, or Hubert Campbell, 46, who was convicted in a mortgage fraud case in 2007, would respond to interview requests. The probe comes weeks after the arrest of the couple’s 28-year-old son, Gregory Campbell, in a separate Medicaid fraud case. He is accused of falsely billing the state for nearly $300,000 and has pleaded not guilty."
There are other good candidates, why repeat myself, here is another article I wrote on this district's election.
To our critics who complain we never beat up on Democrats: help get this woman out of office!!!
