Florida's Culture Of Corruption: Florida GOP

Rich white men such as Florida House Budget Chair Richard away billions of dollars annually in tax dodges to giant corporate donors, while maintaining what’s statistically the second most unfair tax system in America. They count on the public not knowing, or being talked into disbelieving or disregarding such facts by the best conservative spin-doctors Republican money can buy. here

Florida's Culture Of Corruption

What is wrong with the City of Miami?

In their view the citizen is the enemy.
 On display every time citizens go to County Hall or the City Commission to protest a zoning approval. The developers and their representatives are chummy on the sidelines with regulators while citizens in the audience are on the defensive. At Eye On Miami, we witnessed the relationship between government and citizens take a nose-dive when local freedom of information requests began to be accompanied with outrageously high bills for copying documents. It was as if to say to the inquisitive, "fuck you". here

Hillsborough County Republican Dumbass

Port Tampa Bay President Paul Anderson And The Miami Cuban Mafia

Former Tampa Councilwoman Mary Mulhern recalled a conversation she had with Anderson in 2010, shortly after he came to Port Tampa Bay, when she broached the topic of Cuba with him. “Anderson immediately said something like, ‘I know all about Cuba; I’m good friends with Diaz-Balart.” She was referring to U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (Fredo), a South Florida congressman and MCM member who has been working to keep trade restrictions in place between the U.S. and Cuba and stop ferries and cruises from going to the island. here

Defend Florida women!

HB 633, a cruel and extremist bill, is sitting on Governor Rick Scott’s desk, and we need you to tell him to VETO it. If signed into law, this bill will force a woman needing an abortion to wait 24 hours before getting the care she needs. HB 633 is an example of extremist politicians interfering with a woman’s reproductive health.
The time to act is NOW. Sign the petition tell Gov. Scott to STOP the attack on women’s reproductive freedom.
