Imagine for a moment, there’s such a thing as a County Charter, (which if you’re not familiar, is kind of like a constitution for the county) and you’re a sitting legislator tasked with appointing one person (one!) to a committee tasked with revising it.
Of course, you’re going to appoint a lobbyist friend of yours, right? I mean, duh.
Now is the part when you pretend you’re shocked… SHOCKED! at this appointee’s generosity when he not only donates to your campaign to the max allowed, but his lobbying firm does as well.
Perhaps you say, “My, my… no you should’t have… that’s just too generous! Why thank you Mr. Lobbyist/person I appointed and your lobbying firm which, surely, must be slightly happy they have some more influence on the county.
Does this sound strangely familiar to what Jose Felix “Pepi” Diaz did? It should.
Not to be vulgar, but we want to emphasize the point a bit: THIS IS THE KIND OF S%*$! WE’RE TALKING ABOUT when it comes to the Pepi’s dealings. While this may be legal, they feel slimier than a mid-summer outdoor Doral mud bath with Trump.
So what can we do about it?
Well for one, we can make sure Trump’s buddy Diaz doesn’t win this election in SD40.
How do we do it?
$$$$$. Donate. Now. If you can.
Yes, we’re blunt about it. We need resources. It’s important. Tell us another race that’s happening in Florida this year that has greater stakes.
We can’t Flip Florida Blue without flipping key districts. SD40 is our first target.
Let’s do this.
