The Meeks. By Geniusofdespair

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?

Check out MIAMI NEW TIMES on this same subject:

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.

Carrie Meek took money and a car from Stackhouse. Carrie Meek also takes money from rock miners who consistently ruin the Everglades.

And she takes money from Lennar. She was a spokesperson for the failed (thank heavens) Florida City Commons mega development down by Card Sound Road. Lots of sensitive land and wildlife, like Florida panthers. The woman will take money from anybody. One would think her congressional retirement plan would be enough for her to live nicely. Her son has not done much so it's hard to know his ethics but often the apple does not fall far from the tree. As long as he is a do nothing we have to rely on his mother's track record.

Also, the Herald left out online that JESCA (Dorrin Rolle got $10,000 from Stackhouse.

I hope Mr Stackhouse opens his greedy little mouth and spills the beans - finally - on Carrie and Dorrin and we see all 3 sent off to jail, fined and publicly shamed.

How could Miami-Dade County administrators and the criminals at the Empowerment Trust be so stupid as to go into business with con man Dennis Stackhouse? Haven't these people heard of Google? Due Diligence?

Amazingly, the individual who oversaw the empowerment trust is still with the county making $250k/year: Assistant County Manager Cynthia Curry.
