Isn’t that special?
Even more special, it appeared out of nowhere.
Kevin originally posted a picture of his “campaign truck” on August 18, 2014 on his Elect Kevin Burns Mayor Facebook page.
I reviewed all of Kevin’s Campaign Treasurers Reports since June 1, 2014 and he has never reported receiving this truck, either as an in-kind contribution, or by listing it as a purchase or lease campaign expenditure. He has reported spending lots of money on gas for his “campaign truck,” but nowhere did he report how he got it in the first place.
Do I have to tell you that the failure to report contributions and/or expenditures is illegal?
Maybe we should ask Myron what happens to people who allegedly commit campaign finance fraud. Just saying.
Then again, this is the same candidate who thinks nothing of making up shit as he goes along.
I’m told that late last night, Kevin Burns’ campaign workers were out putting flyers on the doors of homes “in the west side” of North Miami, the residents of which are overwhelmingly Democrat. His people were also handing these flyers out today at early voting. The disclaimer states that they were paid for by a Miami-Dade Electioneering Communications Organization called Progress Now.
Except there’s one big problem:
SMITH JOSEPH IS A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT!
Talk about deception!
TALK ABOUT LIES!
Lastly, Kevin Burns has been on the radio day and night desperately campaigning for the all-important Haitian vote. In order to drum up support, he’s been telling listeners that Smith Joseph not only filed the residency lawsuit against former Mayor Lucie Tondreau, but that he financed it as well.
THIS IS A LIE!
Kevin Burns filed the Complaint as the sole Plaintiff on June 17, 2013. He was represented by Joseph P. Klock of the law firm Rasco, Klock, Perez, Nieto.
In his Complaint, Kevin Burns asked the Court to overturn the election results, disqualify Lucie Tondreau and make him the Mayor.
Smith Joseph filed a Motion to Intervene on July 12, 2013, through his attorney, Joseph S. Geller of the law firm of Greenspoon Marder, P.A.
The Motion to Intervene clearly and specifically states that “Burns filed a motion to challenge the election results.”
Paragraph 11 of Smith Joseph’s Motion to Intervene also clearly and specifically states, “Intervenor Joseph takes no position on the merits of the underlying election challenge or on the issue of Tondreau’s residency.”
Smith Joseph then asserts that since Kevin only received 45% of the votes, he did not “receive a majority ‘of the votes cast’ in order to be elected.” As such, Smith Joseph intervened to ask the Court that IF Lucie were disqualified due to Kevin’s Complaint, that he be “declared a candidate in a Special Run-Off Election.”
The Court ruled against Kevin Burns, who appealed the decision. The Appellate Court has yet to rule. However, as we all know by now, Lucie Tondreau was eventually removed from office by the Governor after she was arrested on a matter unrelated to the election.
As a result, North Miami is now holding a special election for Mayor.
Kevin Burns claims that “It’s Time for Trusted Leadership.”
But, the real question is “Whose Leadership Do You Trust?”
“Spreading the Wealth”
