What happened Expo?

What happened TomAss?

We thought you two loved each other!

But now we learn:

Chief Exposito Lashes out at Mayor Regalado over 'interference."

You mean that the Mayor is not supposed to meddle into the affairs of the different departments?

That NEVER happens.

Tomas Regalado has meddled into the affairs of city departments violating the city Charter ever since he stepped foot on the City Commission, and now as Mayor, it is no different.

And because getting rid of Chief John Timoney was Regalado's top priority, he replaced him with Exposito who is a sly fox and is now preparing himself for a whistle blower suit against the city.

Mayor TomAss' "keen knack" for hiring is now going to cost the city taxpayers dearly.

Bend over and open your wallets, it's going to be a rough 2011 at the City!

It takes a Florida grand jury to state the obvious:

Public Government is Corrupt.

Frankly, we're shocked!

As reported in the St. Pete Times (the Herald was too busy licking TomAss to report on this...)

"Saying corruption is "pervasive at all levels of government,'' a statewide grand jury released a report Wednesday calling for reforms to combat "mismanagement and theft'' by public officials.

"Fraud, waste and abuse of state resources'' punishes taxpayers by driving up the cost of services, the panel said."

"The grand jury used the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to underscore the depth of the problem. In that agency, supervisors flagrantly circumvented purchasing rules, a practice that become common knowledge and prompted other employees to act unethically, the panel says.

"We were told employees would steal items such as flat screen televisions from the office. Depending upon the position of the employee, the supervisor often took no action," the report says. "Due to the unethical conduct at the supervisory level, a systemic acceptance of corruption was born."

Look no further than Miami Dade Transit.

In April 2009, a janitor sweeping Miami-Dade Transit's office made a startling discovery: In an empty cubicle on the 16th floor of the county's Overtown Transit Village complex, the cleaner found wads of cash totaling $9,863 and old checks for $14,772.

The former employee who had occupied the desk, Jeffrey Bechdel, helped run the county's seven-day Visitor Pass program, which sold weekly passes for bus and Metrorail. For 2 ½ years, before leaving Transit in January 2009, he stuffed the sale proceeds in his desk drawer. ``I'm a lousy bookkeeper,'' he later told police.

Police pegged possible losses at $120,000, but the staffer wasn't criminally charged. The reason: There was no evidence he stole, and investigators determined the agency was riddled with administrative flaws, including failing to create a system to deposit money from the pass sales.

Where was County Manager George Burgess?

Who is responsible for making sure that OUR taxpayer money is looked after?

No one.

If Governor Elect Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature are serious about tackling public corruption, Miami Dade County and City of Miami are the very first places they should look.

*** *** *** EXCLUSIVE *** *** ***

For the man with a $5,000 personal worth who once famously claimed he was "too poor" to attend Marlins or Heat games, Mayor Regalado has done a sudden one-eighty degree turn and is hobnobbing with the rich he so famously decried.

Spotted tonight in a swanky corporate suite costing thousands of dollars at the Miami Heat's game against the New York Knicks, the Mayor brought along his posse consisting of family, Assistant City Manager Johnny Martinez, and the City's new PR man, Angel Zayon.

We look forward to the gift disclosure filed by the mayor and his staffers revealing the amount of the corporate largess that allowed the mayor and staffers to attend this top flight NBA game.

Meanwhile, we have also learned that the Mayor is planning to ignore tomorrow's visit of Florida Governor Elect Rick Scott to Miami's famous Domino Park.

Forget that the city is in deep financial straits and will soon need the help of the governor to clean it up, for Regalado, bullshit demagoguery has always mattered more than helping the city he supposedly serves.


Heat 1 - Scott 0

Banker to the Developers (and now former City Manager) Carlos Migoya has his eyes set on another public perch where he continue to exercise the leadership skills he so famously showed at the City of Miami.

Rumor has it that Migoya enjoyed the public sector so much that he is now spreading his name around to be considered as the next head of Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Anyone who reads this blog, along with our friends over at the Crespo Gram and Investigation Miami, know full well that under the leadership of Mr. Migoya, the City of Miami has been an unmitigated disaster.

Not only did Mr. Migoya NOT fix the fiscal mess that is the City, but he bent over and took it when Mayor Regalado replaced him with the incompetent Tony Crapp.

Anyone with a modicum of shame, an MBA, and over three decades of experience in finance and banking would have at least questioned being replaced by someone with the thinnest resume of any city manager in past memory.

Yet, Migoya praised Regalado's selection, agreeing that the job he undertook for nearly a year, could also be done well by an incompetent lackey.

Mr. Migoya lost whatever reputation he had as a serious businessman the minute he became a shill to Mayor Regalado's incompetent circus, and especially when he allowed himself to be replaced by someone who is woefully unqualified for the position.

Mr. Migoya should salvage what little reputation he has left, and go on a bike ride in the French countryside with our pal Jorge Perez.

If Migoya could be replaced at the City by an incompetent idiot, what makes him so qualified to run one of the top public hospitals in the country?

Poor Expo!

The pressure got to him and now he is delusional.

How else can you explain the appearance on Michael Putney, and the arrogant stupid quotes.

"When we do take action, we're told that we're using excessive force.  If we didn't to it, we'd be criticized that we're not using it enough.''
Why the criticism?
Five people dead at the hands of your police department maybe?
Whatever happened to taking responsibility for your actions?

Leadership demands accountability.

But we don't get that from you, or the mayor.

Time to go Expo!

Little "Cry Baby" Cabrera wants your four stars.

Or is Frank Pichel the new chief?

Friday, December 17, 2010



If you are a black man in Miami.

If you are carrying a weapon or gun for any reason, whether legally or illegally, licensed or not, even for personal protection, you are a presumed target and threat by City of Miami police.

Forget the Second Amendment.

Forget the presumption of innocence.

Forget all Florida laws protecting the right to carry weapons.

Forget any rights you think you may have.

The Mayor doesn't care about you.

The Manager doesn't care about you.

The District Commissioner doesn't care about you.

The Chief of Police doesn't care about you.

In the Miami inner city, black men have no rights.

Your lives are worthless and disposable.

Miami Police Shoot Another Subject in Liberty City

Five persons shot dead, and you have blood on your hands Mr. Mayor.

While John Timoney was able to reduce crime AND eliminate police shootings, your handpicked police chief is out of control.

This is what happens when you hire cronies and not professionals.

Will the "House Negro" Commissioner Dunn say anything now?

Of course not.

Will you Mr. Mayor replace the disaster Exposito with a qualified and professional police chief?

Of course not.

You will use this latest shooting as an excuse to replace Exposito with your Godson Louis Cabrera.

With more disasters to follow.


"I believe in you, mayor.''

You should believe in the Mayor, Reverend Dunn.

He has done so much for your community.

If you could stick our head out of the TomAss for a second, you could see what is going on in the district you represent.

Just this week an innocent mother and her child were violently gunned down in your district, killed by a barrage of bullets from assault weapons.

Where were the Mayor and his hand picked (now thrown under the bus) police chief?

What about the four people in your district shot to death by police this past summer?

And not to mention the continued poverty, high unemployment, and general malaise in the district you represent.

You should be proud to represent the poorest district in one of America's poorest cities.

Malcolm X described you perfectly:

"There were two kinds of slaves, the house Negro and the field Negro.

"The house Negroes — they lived in the house with master, they dressed pretty good, they ate good because they ate his food — what he left. They lived in the attic or the basement, but still they lived near the master; and they loved the master more than the master loved himself. They would give their life to save the master's house — quicker than the master would."

Reverend Dunn, look around your district, what have you, the Mayor, or the Manager done for the people?

You are just a puppet house boy.

A worse disgrace than Tony Crapp.

At least he is getting paid $300,000+ to stay ignorant.

How much did you sell your soul for Reverend Dunn?

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


We told you so.

Just in time for the holidays, what better gift than to promote your long time Tom Ass kisser and give him the $300,000 salary he deserves.

NO Private Sector Experience.

NO Managerial Experience.

NO Financial Experience.

NEVER had a real job in his life!

But that doesn't matter.

Regalado ``is making sure the top city decision-makers are people he can trust, and are part of his long-term team,'' said Dario Moreno, a political science professor at Florida International University. ``His style is to have people he can trust around him.''
Which is why Regalado gave Dario Moreno a contract to teach "ethics" classes.

Chuck Rabin of course never asked Regalado who else was in the running because no one but Crapp was getting this job and everyone knows it.  
Chuck is nicely playing along, already pointing out that "Crapp would be the second African American to oversee the city's workforce" and quoting Tom Ass saying "some of his supporters expected him to name a Cuban American to the top post."

In Regalado's mind of divisive ethnic politics, naming an inexperienced black man to city manager trumps any considerations of knowledge or experience, it's the ethnicity that counts, and not the brains.

Chuck and the Herald play further into Regalado's hands:

"Monday, in a meeting with The Miami Herald's editorial board, Crapp downplayed his lack of experience in handling large budgets and overseeing large staffs. The eight months he spent under Migoya's tutelage, he said, felt more like five years."
But that's the point.
Tony Crapp has never managed ANYTHING of significance.
Not in five years
Not in eight months
Not in eight minutes.

The ONLY reason he is the city's manager is because he is black, and he is loyal to Tom Ass.

We would respect Regalado if he came out and said it: 
"Look, Tony is black, I need votes in the black community, and he is loyal to me."

Stop the fucking charade already.
In a metropolitan area of more than 3 million people, Tony Crapp Jr. is THE MOST QUALIFIED person to be city manager.

What's worse is how all the commissioners are lining up to support the Tom Ass.

Commission Chairman Sarnoff said Crapp's lack of a background in finance is a concern, but added, ``I think he's going to have a great team behind him. He'll be fine in operations. My only concern is in the numbers part. He's going to need a very capable CFO and budget director, and I think he's got both.''

The very capable CFO and budget director being our pals Larry and Diana?

The city is in a financial crisis that will continue until voters wake up and realize they are all being played for fools. 

Regalado, Sarnoff, and the commission don't care about the voters, taking the city down the Crapper, lying to all of us by not raising "taxes" but raising "fees," and using our money as their private bank accounts.

Wake up.................

And throw all these bastards out of office!

Oh Expo!

You were doing so well avoiding the slings and arrows of the media, navigating the treacherous waters of Miami politics, all relatively unscathed.

Your predecessor stopped police shootings and dropped crime to record lows, but was screwed over for accepting a demo Lexus.

Your first year had "four fatal shootings by officers, a videotape of police punching a man while he's pinned down, a botched attempt to control an unruly crowd and some anti-corruption investigations that fizzled."

You didn't even find Manny Diaz' bike (or the Grove and Brickell rapists for that matter).

We wanted you gone.

So did Uncle Luke.

But you managed to survive.

Until now.


You fucked with the wrong person Expo.

The second Louis Cabrera was transferred over to the City Manager's office, we knew you were in trouble.

And now, master of public relations Mayor Tomas "Keen Knack" Regalado drops a bomb on you to the Miami Herald.

After a year, police chief under the gun.

Ironic headline no?

Forget that it was the Mayor who hired you.

That it was the Mayor who told you to start the "anti-corruption" unit that would go after his political enemies.

Or that it was the Mayor himself who said that "violence would be responded to with violence."

Now the Mayor says "It's all on Exposito.''

Just because you fucked with his Godson Louis Cabrera.

Your days are numbered Chief.

So watch your back Expo...

Because Luisito is already making space on his collar for a fourth star.

"Anyone who steals public monies from any government entity will be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.'' 
Do you read this blog?  
The Crespo Gram Report?  
Investigation Miami?

You must be fucking kidding!

More on our friend the Ethicist Robert Meyers, in bed not with dear Rodzandra, but with Chairman of Everything Marc David Sarnoff, Esquire.
Stay tuned and...

Trust me!

That was the message from $422,000 a year County Manager George "Uber Bureaucrat" Burgess to the County Commission when grilled yesterday regarding the mess that is Miami Dade Transit.

The "Federales" have come down hard on the County, freezing their ability to draw down any money for transit projects.

As the Herald reports:

"Miami-Dade Transit's federal funding suspension grew out of accounting errors, poor management and erroneous information relayed to federal auditors, but does not appear to reflect fraud, Miami-Dade County Manager George Burgess told commissioners on Tuesday."

Accounting errors. Poor management. Erroneous information relayed to federal auditors.

That's enough to get you fired anywhere, but not at Miami Dade County!

Oh no, Bureaucrat Burgess puts on his best face and tells everyone not to worry, he has it all under control.

And there's more...

"The session brought to light concerns that several commissioners have about whether the federal funding suspension may disrupt transit services.

"Burgess and Assistant County Manager Ysela Llort told commissioners it may take several months for the county to wrap up its own investigation and carry out a modification of transit financial controls before the agency can persuade the Federal Transit Administration to lift the funds' suspension.

"Burgess said he expects the internal investigation and ``corrective'' procedure to be wrapped up by early March. Llort said it was still unclear when the federal government would lift the suspension because she doesn't know when precisely the Federal Transit Administration will return to Miami-Dade to conduct a new audit."

We know all about the thorough internal investigations conducted by the city and county.

Who gives a shit about public transit anyway?

Only poor people and blacks use it.

The Mayor, Manager, Commissioners, and their lackeys don't have to schlep for a bus. They ALL get car allowances.

Mayor Carlos Alvarez has been too busy fighting a recall to properly reign in Bureaucrat Burgess and has let him run amok in screwing things up at County Hall.

Burgess' tentacles reach even further with the great job he has done at fucking up Jackson too.

Everything the County touches turns to shit, and yet, no one ever loses their job.

Here's a message to Mayor Carlito:

You want to avert the disaster of your eventual recall? Don't fight in court anymore.

Grow some balls, and get rid of Burgess.

Fire his ass.

Show the people that you will no longer tolerate the bullshit coming from the Manager's office, and that at over $400,000, you expect accountability and results.

``. . .I don't see transparency anymore. We see cover up,''
So says Nathaniel Wilcox, executive director of PULSE, speaking to the Herald on the police shootings that took place earlier this year during the Summer of Violence.
Remember the promises from Chief Miguel Exposito that an investigation would be made into these shootings?  And all the promises from Mayor Tomas Regalado on running a transparent city government?

"DeCarlos Moore has been deceased five months and we have not gotten a report,'' said Rev. Jerome Starling. 
"I'm mad as hell because people have died and we have not received a report.''

Nor will you ever receive a report!

Meanwhile, the cop in charge of this mess gets a promotion.

The Mayor's message to the black community?

We will fight violence with violence, and if you don't like it, too fucking bad!

Thursday, December 02, 2010


A reader alerted us to the fact that today, at 3:00 PM, during her scheduled radio show on "La Poderosa" 670 AM, School Board Member and Daughter of Tomasito, Raquelita Regalado had as her guest none other than our pal Jose "Pepe" Fulgueira.

For those of you who don't remember "Pepe," he is employed by Mayor Tomasito as a "Special Assistant."

Now, what on Earth does a "Special Asistannt" do for a Mayor?

Glad you asked.

For one, Jose "Pepe" goes on Raquelita's radio show at 3 PM, when most of us are at work.  This would not be such a big deal but for the fact that Jose "Pepe" is being payed by all of us, the taxpayers of Miami, to be working at his city job, whatever that is, at 3 PM.

Instead of specially assisting the mayor, handling constituent complaints, of trying to fix the incredibly fucked up inner workings of the city, "Pepe" is on air, on our dime, yucking it up with the Mayor's daughter.

This is our tax dollars at work.

Yet, it is not surprising.

Above we see the picture of "Pepe" along with the "24 hour mayor" clearly skirting state law by campaigning for Raquelita while on city time.

Did "Pepe" get in trouble for breaking the law?

Of course not! 

He is a member of the Tomass inner sphincter, along with Tony Crapp, Ada Rojas, and Jose Marrero, all grossly under-qualified, grossly overpaid, and all above the law.

It's Miami Bitches!

So while the rest of us try to eek it out in a double digit unemployment rate economy, our city workers are living it up!


Miami Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez will voluntarily dismiss his lawsuit in the Billionaire Norman Braman recall lawsuit after discovery motions have shown that Clerk Harvey Ruvin did in fact certify the petition signatures.

This gives the Billionaire Braman (who contributed to Ruvin's clerk campaign) the green light to proceed with the recall of the mayor.

The Billionaire and his pal Tomasito are out for revenge against Alvarez for the Marlins deal and even though it was the COUNTY COMMISSION that voted to approve the higher taxes, Alvarez is getting the shaft.

Alvarez nonetheless is out fighting, defending his actions before the Downtown Bay Forum.

"I was not going to be the mayor that closes down fire stations, that closes down parks, basically all these things that I've been working for my entire adult life," said Alvarez, his voice occasionally cracking with emotion. "I was not going to do that. I'd rather be recalled."
Well Carlos,
It may happen sooner rather than later.
