Miami Dade County Mayor Gimenez's PAC "Miami Dade Residents First". By Geniusofdespair

Mayor Carlos Gimenez and the head tilt tell. Tell us if you are lying: Tilt.

Miami Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez's known PAC Miami Dade Resident's First has raised $64,500 in April.

Of note, donating in April to Miami Dade Resident's First: 
 Miami Dade Resident's First got $5,000 from Progress Miami, 2121 Ponce de Leon, another PAC. The Chairman of Progress Miami is Christoper T. Harris.

Contributors to Progress Miami PAC
Eric Soulavy
Blue Jay Capital gave $10,000 (That is Eric Soulavy). They are a Real Estate Investment company based in Key Biscayne. CMC Group Inc., (Ugo Colombo) gave $20,000. CMC Group, Inc. are luxury developers responsible for the Brickell Flatiron Building and Epic.

Most of the expenses logged for  Miami Dade Resident's First were for consultants and mailers. The total raised by this PAC is $2,406,907. Gimenez has also raised $1,325,156 in his Campaign Account. That is almost $4 Million Dollars to be Mayor. There are 1,244,187 registered voters in Miami Dade County. The voter turnout for these August elections is about 20%. So Gimenez could theoretically pay the 240,000 voters $16 each to vote for him. I would do it for 4 cappuccinos at Starbucks. Better than flyers and phone calls and giving the money to consultants and for dumb Dario Moreno push polls.

I heard Gimenez's Fundraiser Brian Leadmeier is using strong arm tactics on donors. Shame on you Democratic fundraiser gone rogue Brian.

Common Sense Now,  another PAC helping Mayor Gimenez, has not raised any money since November ($50,000) but it continues to pay consultants from its leftover money.

Mayor Gimenez has more consultants than a potato has eyes and his neck does more swivels than my computer chair.

The Gimenez supporters are discrediting the poll results that show Regalado closing in on him. The Gimenez camp relies on the bogus polling of Dario Moreno for reassurance...and then they use the fabricated polling to convince donors he will win. Donors are convinced the corrupt Gimenez administration will deliver a good return on investment. His numbers are falling as more people realize Raquel is for real. It's about lights out for this POS beady-eyed shyster.

The amount of money the Mayor has raised in both PAC's and campaign donations is a perfect example of what is wrong with our political system. The public has no access and connected high roller contributors get all the help and access they need to take advantage of the system, We (the voting public) need to have less money rolling into campaign coffers so we get real representation.
Commissioner Cava Levine tried to reign this PAC funding in, but got little or no support from fellow commissioners.

If we were living in a first class city an individual such as Carlos Gimenez would not be mayor today and would probably be serving a prison term for having permitted his 2012 campaign manager Al Lorenzo to utilize funds from his PACs to pay unscrupulous boleteras to illegally collect absentee ballots from the mentally ill, the elderly and the infirmed.
What happened in 2012 was a huge embarrassment. Gimenez and State Attorney Fernandez-Rundle utized the same corrupt campaign manager and after a whitewash only two elderly boleteros were charged. The investigation was swept under a rug and Gimenez was free to give away county contracts to all those companies that contribute to his PACs. The fraud even extended into current Commissioner Esteban Bovo's county office where an aide collected close to 200 absentee ballots for Gimenez and Fernandez-Rundle. In any other state Bovo would had been booted out of office but there he is, looking to become the next commission chair and pushing the Genting agenda.
This election will be more of the same. Gimenez's ballot brokers theoughout the county will seal the election with absentee ballots even before we go the precincts. Bovo, Jose Luis Castillo, Al Lorenzo and an unsavory cast of characters will see to that.
We no longer live in a democracy in Miami Dade County. We are all subjects to a corrupt emperor known Carlos Gimenez and akin to Caligula.

I too would do it for $16. Direct bribery is so much more honest than this indirect lying and subterfuge. He is going to win anyway as our electorate believes anything, so why not reap the developer/special interest funds.

Defede wants to know why the incumbent mayor should be fired. How about the death of the Transit driver as a result of his cutting maintenance funding to the buses; the Special Taxing district fiasco involving misuse of millions of dollars; the $250,000 apiece useless Deputy Mayors; the failed HUD grants for the Homeless; the near collapse of the library system; two major departments under management control of the federal courts - WASAD and Corrections; the multi-million bailouts for Steve Ross, the basketball arena, and the Science Museum; you get the picture. Gimenez is a complete failure and has no management skills.

He was fired from his job as City Manager in Miami for a having no game. Another four years of this dolt at the County is too much to bear. Screw him and all his extorted campaign dollars.

Progress Miami also donated $5,000 to Fernandez-Rundle's PAC Citizens for Justice on March 22, 2016, Miami-Dade PAC has failed to report this in their recent financial report.
