David Rivera’s impeccable Republican credentials include having served as Chairman of the Republicans for Clinton Coalition in 92. Thanks for supporting the Republican candidate, Rep. Rivera!

Battling it out by spamming the blogs is a little low-rent fellas

The Real Cheo

Why isn't the LIBERAL Versailles Blog talking about David "Mr. Republican" Rivera CHAIRING the coalition of Republilcans for the BILL CLINTON against an INCUMBENT REPUBLICAN President!!!

The Real Elias

How come the Versailles Blog doesn't talk about the financing of David Rivera's State Committeeman race? How about the Ringer story from the Herald? Obviously, integrity is not a requirement for REC CHair in Miami "Banana Republic" Dade...

Curbelo

Listen here, I gave money to Sires because of my business ties to him. I could care less about ideology. This will not affect my decision making ability as Chairman.

Rivera

And I supported Bill Clinton in 1992 because I thought he was better than President George H. W. Bush. I could care less about ideology. This will not affect my decision making ability as Chairman.

Zapata and Garcia should give Rep Anitere Flores a job. She probably cant get anything for FIU anymore since she is in the dog house with House leadership so her value to FIU is greatky diminished.

GetTheFactsStraight

Flores in the doghouse with House Leadership???? Is that way Sansom made her Deputy Majority Leader?? Yeah, they must really not like her....

Got the fat straight

I thought Anitere Flores just lost the election to be Dade Delegation Vice Chair last week to Rep. Luis Garcia, a Democrat! By the way are you refering to Sansom, the guy who is under fire for getting a $110,000 job at a university that he got the legislature to give them an extra $200,000.

Juan

Doesn't Anitere work at a university and did the legislature give them $$$ to pay her salary?

Berta

Who is Anitere Flores and what exactly does she do at F.I.U. and why is this the topic on this blog? The State Attorneys office should investigate any wrong doing and this blog should get back on topic.
