One of the saddest songs ever written is “Jolene” by Dolly Parton. The singer is begging a woman not to take her man and that her happiness depends on the dirtbag who’s cheating on her. For the life of me, I can’t understand what self-respecting woman would want to hold on to a lyin’, cheatin’ SOB. Just tell him to pack his bags and hit the road, Jack!
But this blog has nothing to do with Dolly Parton or her song. In my research of the registered voters at North Miami Beach councilman Frantz Pierre’s house, the name “Joline” came up and Dolly’s famous ballad came to mind. Yeah, I sure do love country music.
According to the most recent voting records for Precinct 123 obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department, there are still eight (8) registered voters at La Maison de Pierre.
Curiously, the voter named Joline Green was also registered to vote, and did vote, at L’il Frantzie P’s house in the city’s 2009 and 2011 elections. Only at that time her name was Joline Pierre.
After some dirt digging, my top researcher found a marriage record for L’il Miss Joline, who became the lawfully wedded wife of one Peter Vinton Victor Green on January 27, 2012. Tomorrow will be their one year wedding anniversary.
The question is, if newlywed Joline Pierre Green got married last January, why is she still registered to vote at the house of The P Man? County records show that she voted BY ABSENTEE BALLOT in both the 2012 primary and general elections. Didn’t Joline move in with her husband after their nuptials? Or was their marital bliss short lived, forcing her to move back home?
If this were a country music song, just think of the delicious twist of poetic justice. I’d write lyrics about some hussy stealing her man, and “Jolene” would get her just desserts! Dolly Parton would be proud.
But, it’s not a song – it’s real life. When it comes to the strange goings on in councilman Pierre’s life, folks, you just can’t make this stuff up.
Another scenario, of course, would be that Peter Vinton Victor Green moved into La Maison de Pierre, and that he’s not on the voter list simply because he never registered to vote. If that’s the case, that now brings the total number of bodies at 2120 NE 171 Street, a three bedroom, two bath home, to FOURTEEN! Imagine the line for the toilet!
Look, the bottom line is that I personally don’t give a crap how many people Frantz Pierre wants to cram into his home. I still firmly believe that if all those people live there he’s definitely in violation of the City Code regardless of whether or not the city wants to enforce its own Ordinance. If he wants to live like a cockroach it’s certainly none of my business. But, as a concerned citizen, voter fraud IS my business!
Chances are not all of those people actually live there, in which case the ones who don’t live there but registered to vote at 2120 NE 171 Street are violating Florida voter laws and committing voter fraud.
I suspect that Joline Pierre Green is one of them.
Unless, of course, my anniversary wishes were a bit premature.
