POST OF THE YEAR: Where is Ana Sol Alliegro? by gimleteye

The Miami New Times Banana Republican noted Eye On Miami:
(This) post was the funniest take on the whereabouts of the missing in action and self-described "Republican bad girl" Ana Alliegro, who is at the center of the David Rivera scandal. Before Alliegro disappeared, (Australia maybe?) she was sought by investigators who wanted to know about Rivera's involvement in cash transactions that helped fund the Democratic primary candidate against the eventual winner of the Congressional seat, Joe Garcia. "What's a good political corruption story without a femme fatale? ... That would Ana Sol Alliegro. Who wasn't entertained by our post, which asked our readers for suggestions to help the FBI find Ana.We got more feedback from readers than any post: showing that when it comes to political corruption in Miami-Dade, Eye On Miami readers can sniff an aromatic Miami story like a glass of fine wine and assess its quality with the best."
Honestly: read the comments to appreciate the quality of Eye On Miami reader feedback.

So we don't know where Ana Sol Alliegro is, but EOM readers certainly have interesting ideas of the track the FBI might follow. If I had to guess, Ana will re-emerge sober, after the November election, contrite, and facing whatever consequences are in store, likely challenged by lawyers who will emerge to help her pro bono. Maybe she will find a Miami lawyer who is a Democrat to represent her. What follows is from our earlier posts. Please don't hesitate to add to the record.

Has the trail gone cold on Ana Sol Alliegro? Where is she? Miami thinks this is important!


The FBI needs help locating a key figure in the political corruption case involving Congressman David Rivera. We ask for our readers' help in suggesting locations where the FBI could find her.

The really big thieves always get away. Often they get promoted. If I were her Ana would cut the best deal I could. That cash came from somewhere. If she was smart, she kept a way to prove Rivera's fingerprints on it. What's that worth to the feds and her is the question. It also depends on who is elected in November. This is where Obama really screwed up. He didn't use the law and the full power of the FBI to ferret out and prosecute the big Bush thieves. If Romney wins, all this Rivera stuff just disappears in smoke. He knows there's a good chance this happens.

The sad thing here is that none of them respect the rule of law. We are a country of laws and no one is above the law. They will have to be taught the hard way.

From the articles I have read in the media. Her mother knows where she is. If your child is missing and have not reported it and she says her daughter is fine.
Then mother needs to be arrested for harboring a federal witness.
Otherwise if she is in witness protection which is possible then watch out Lynda Bell.

I too am wondering why this story has literally disappeared from our local newspapers! Perhaps she's been located and no one is talking. This is all so surreal, but so Miami! And people wonder why we are not a "world class" city!

On another note, these comments are probably among the best on the blogs! I hope someone is taking notes. This is a great novel in the making!

Do you think someone put the "squeeze" on the Miami Herald? It is strange with a developing story like this that there is no follow-up. It adds to the mystery. Something is up. If there is, where did the pressure come from, and why? And why would the Herald succumb?

Maybe the herald is sitting on the story in exchange for an exclusive for them and their tv partner when the story breaks.

To the commenter who said that someone in a Herald article claimed Alliegro was a former Garcia campaign manager: couldn't be more wrong. She's an ultra-conservative GOP operative and a good friend of David's. If you look up stuff about the 2010 campaign, Garcia's manager was an unrelated Jeffrey Garcia.

For the people complaining about the Herald: It's hard to write a story when there is nothing new to report.
"Ana Sol Alliegro still missing. Nobody has seen her. Nobody knows where she is but her mother might and she won't tell us. We'll let you know when someone finds her."
End of story.

There is plenty the Herald could do ... Put the spotlight on the past. Who are these bolleteros? They influence public elections: their private lives should be brought to light. Who exactly at the Herald is scared to tell the truth? Maybe we need our own town square stockades to put them in side by side.

Hello all,

I am a student trying to do a report on a company that is possibly under federal investigation for loan fraud. I am sorry that this article doesn't pertain to that, but I don't know where else to post this.

Apparently, the fraud involved a 20 million dollar loan and condo rehab that never took place. This all went down in the 20's block of Miami beach, sometime in the past five years. A couple of the players involved are the OPAL real estate group, run by Peter Picknelly and Demetrios Panteleakis.

I know this isn't the correct place to post this, but I am trying to do a report on them and I have run out of places to look. The article I read about this in, roughly 10 months ago, cannot be found. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks!

I guess he was tapping this gun totin', leg spreadin' ditzy batistiana for 80 odd days or so, until he grew fearful of her pistol, which she compares to some men's parts. Hmmm...wonder if it's a derringer or a .44 magnum. Anyhow, I been missin' ol' Joe, and sure am happy to see he's still kicking...or something. Ana's out in Hollywood, trying to drum up some interest in a new porn project.
