Corrupt Carlos At It Again: Shocking Emails Show How Mayor Is Using Public Health Crisis For Political Gain

Alerts Sent to Monroe County Raise Questions About Corrupt Carlos Mixing Mayoral Duties with Congressional Run

MIAMI, FL: Alarming emails revealed by an NBC6 investigation confirm the political motivation behind Corrupt Carlos Giménez’s county staffs’ decision to put his name on a series of public safety alerts. The alerts were seen as far south as Islamorada, which is in Monroe County and outside of his jurisdiction, but still within the Congressional District Corrupt Carlos is running for.

Another Scandal In a Long String of Corrupt Dealings

Emails obtained by NBC 6 show that Corrupt Carlos went from calling emergency cell phone alerts a “bit overboard” to putting his name on them — and then taking it back off. The investigation shows County staff debating whether they had crossed a line. 

Why does this matter? Corrupt Carlos has decided to run for Congress in District 26, which includes portions of Miami-Dade County and all of Monroe County, including the Florida Keys. “Per Florida election law, it is illegal for an officer or employee of the state, county, or city, to use their official authority or influence ‘for the purpose of interfering with an election or a nomination of office or coercing or influencing another person’s vote or affect the result thereof.’”

“Corrupt Carlos is at it again,” said Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair Steve Simeonidis. “He needs to respect the line between politics and public service especially during a public health crisis. The fact that he is using this crisis for his political gain is not surprising. Indeed, it is just another sign that he is now taking his cues from his new golf buddy, Donald Trump, when it comes to political greed and narcissism.”
