MIAMI-DADE, FL: After Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R, FL-25) signed an amicus brief joining Texas’s lawsuit that seeks to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party condemned his actions as frivolous and anti-democratic.
Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair Steve Simeonidis issued the following statement:
“Congressman Diaz-Balart should stay focused on his job representing the people of Miami-Dade in Congress, and help pass direct payments to families in his district affected by the health and economic crisis of COVID-19. It is an embarrassment to the State of Florida that he and Attorney General Ashley Moody would waste taxpayer dollars on this frivolous lawsuit.”
The President of the Miami-Dade Cuban American Club, Horacio Sierra, added the following statement:
“We wish that Congressman Diaz-Balart, who is such a stalwart champion of democracy in Cuba, would stop trying to subvert democracy in the United States. His hypocrisy is galling.”
