Does anyone remember the fistfight at a radio station in 2000 between the Lacasa's and Renier Diaz de la Portilla our feisty school board member?
I think it is no wonder the names of Diaz de la Portilla and Diaz Balart are popping up as lurking behind the scenes, and in front, on opposing sides in the Mayoral campaigns. U.S. Rep Diaz Balart is out stumping for Julio. Like bad pennies, this gaggle of brothers show up a lot behind the scenes in Miami Dade County. According to Miami New Times, Alex Diaz de la Portilla (pictured left) helped Natacha Seijas and Carlos Alvarez fight the recall.
Campaigns are dirty business filled with unsavory characters -- even Jeb Bush is involved in this one for Julio Robaina. I will be glad when this campaign is over.
