It was reported today that Dennis Stackhouse was jailed for $1 million dollar Liberty City fraud. You will remember he had that bogus Poinciana Park development highlighted in the Herald Series, Poverty Peddlers.
In the online version of the article they did not print this part of the article:
Stackhouse also used some loan money for political influence...He also paid at least $40,000 in consulting fees to former U.S. Rep. Carrie Meek -- whose son, Democratic Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Kendrick Meek, tried to secure federal funds for Stackhouse's Poinciana project.
I am a broken record: The mother is ruining it for the son. I will not be able to vote for Kendrick Meek as his mother refuses to retire and he is using very bad judgment when it relates to her, soiling his own career. Why would he try to secure Federal funds for Stackhouse if not for his mother?

And even if the ongoing criminal investigation doesn't touch him, Kendrick Meek's support of the failed project and his mother's connections to Stackhouse is going to hurt him in the primary and general elections.
