Carlos Gimenez's PAC -- in the Race for Mayor -- Sent Out a Targeted Flyer for all the Hispanic Grandma's. By Geniusofdespair
The flyer I was given was targeted at Raquel Regalado's base: the ABUELA's of the County. It was paid for by Mayor Carlos Gimenez's PAC and is 15" by 12". The PAC has $2.5 million to spend ($5,000 SUGAR money). Gimenez also has $1.5 in his campaign account including $7,000 of SUGAR money.
You will be happy to note that, according to the flyer, Carlos Gimenez has FINISHED CORRUPTION in the County. I suppose it means he ended corruption. That is big news -- that should be on the front page of the Miami Herald, if it were true.
Anyway, I was surprised to hear that claim, especially when there is a rumor going around that someone from his campaign called a candidate and asked them to withdraw from a school board race that his sister-in-law is in. Were they offered money to withdraw? Favors? Don't know. Just know if you are going to claim you ended corruption you had better be squeaky clean when you lie. And, Grandma's, he didn't end corruption in the County, it is still alive and well and flourishing.
I love that Gimenez lists as his accomplishment reducing County Departments from 42 to 25 to decrease bureaucracy. All he did was reshuffle the damn county in one big mess of Departments, folding former departments into the current 25. Not much of a change, and certainly not one for the better as we have seen over the years. I am not even going to bother to include the claims he made about the police to these senior citizens. I think it says he created 150,000 new jobs in the private sector. My Spanish is lacking,
Carlos Gimenez, good luck with Raquel Regalado's base, but they just aren't as stupid as you think.
