(Stephanie Kienzle) The absentee voter fraud scandal in northeast Miami-Dade County continues to get attention. The Miami Herald’s most recent article, Probe finds ‘unscrupulous’ absentee-voting practices at ALF (http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/11/28/2522333/probe-finds-unscrupulous-absentee.html), states, “A Miami-Dade ethics commission investigation has found questionable absentee-ballot practices at a North Miami Beach assisted-living facility where three residents reported voting problems — and where, after a visit from investigators, one employee said she was instructed to toss all future ballots ‘in the garbage.” The nine-month investigation began after Judith Thompson was turned away from the polls in last year’s general election after being told she had already voted absentee — though she had never requested a ballot. Two other women at the Park Plaza Retirement Residence also had trouble voting by mail.”
Not surprisingly, “No charges were filed as a result of the probe, initiated by the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office in January and completed by the Commission on Ethics and Public Trust last month.”
The common denominator here is that back in January the Miami-Dade state attorney was Joe Centorino, and the executive director of the Miami Dade County Commission on Ethics and Public Trust is now….you guessed it…Joe Centorino.
I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you. Simply shocked.
