Miami Herald publishes scathing report on squandered public dollars and pay-offs
Wednesday, June 27, 2007
The Miami Herald has published a scathing expose' titled "Poverty Peddler" that focuses on several prominent Blacks in Miami. There are reports of free vehicles, donations to favored non-profit organizations, contracts secured by a questionable developer and more.
Based on the reprt, it doesn't look good for former U.S. Rep. Carrie Meek, her son U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dorrin Rolle. How the Black Miami community and its leaders respond to this will be interesting.
If recent history proves correct, the Herald expose' will do little more than assure sales of their paper and readership on the internet. Remember the award-winning House of Lies investigative series did no harm to Rolle during his last political campaign. He trounced two opponents and kept his seat without a run-off election.
