North Miami Beach Councilwoman Phyllis Smith, who is running for her life (time health insurance benefits), so she can plant her tushy-on-the-chair for four years longer than any other elected official, likes to make up words.
Her most recent gaffe on the dais was during the council meeting on April 7, 2015, when she coined the word “honorability.”
Anyone who isn’t alphabetically challenged can pick up the nearest dictionary and see that there is no such word. That fact still doesn’t prevent Phyllis, the self-professed expert on whatever pops into her empty head at any given moment, from blurting out nonsense at the most inappropriate times.
Not that Phyllis has ever been known for her “appropriateability,” but she sure has a keen knack for making herself look as stupid as possible any time she opens her mouth.
Even by Phyllis standards, the bar of which has already been lowered to new depths since she was first elected in 2007, the reigning Queen of “Incivilibility” has outdone herself with her latest act of “abominability.”
If it weren’t bad enough that this woman once compared North Miami Beach Police Officers to “little children having their toys taken away,” Phyllis’ true colors have been revealed in her quest to get re-elected by any means necessary.
“Honorability” be damned!
Two days ago I accidentally discovered that she accepted a campaign contribution check on February 19, 2015 from the attorney who represents the male humanoid who, less than two weeks earlier, shot North Miami Beach Police Officer Lino Diaz on February 6, 2015.
On February 9, 2015, Officer Diaz had surgery in order to repair the damage, including a fractured bone in his arm, inflicted by Elton L. Bandoo before being discharged from the hospital after a five day stay. As he was leaving the hospital, Officer Diaz expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of support he received, and stated, “My goal is to recover as quickly as possible, come back out here, and serve and protect my community.”
Officer Lino Diaz is a true hero, who personifies honor, duty and commitment to service. There are no words of appreciation deserving enough to bestow on this man of principle.
Unlike Phyllis, I won’t try to invent any.
Also unlike Phyllis, it would never occur to me to further insult Officer Diaz by accepting blood money from the lawyer defending the person who tried to kill a member of the police department she ostensibly represents as an elected official.
As much fun as it is to ridicule Phyllis Smith’s comical use of one malapropism after another, this time there is nothing funny about it.
Her acceptance of this tainted donation proves beyond all reasonable doubt that Phyllis Smith will stoop to the lowest of lows and do anything at all to keep her seat on the dais.
Phyllis Smith has demonstrated the ultimate disrespect to a law enforcement officer who would – and did – take a bullet for anyone, including her, in the line of duty.
This desperate act on her part was also a clear slap in the face of every single officer in the North Miami Beach Police Department.
I have absolutely zero respect for anyone who even thinks about voting for Phyllis Smith.
Or, her co-conspirator, Frantz Pierre.
If voters do the unthinkable act of re-electing either of them, there will be no hope for the future of North Miami Beach.
There will also be no hope for this blogger to continue covering North Miami Beach.
