David Rivera's mad-cash scramble

Hitting up fellow lawmakers and taxpayer advocates alike, Miami Republican Rep. David Rivera is blasting out emails in a final fundraising pitch for the quarter. Rivera, who faces fellow Miami Republican Rep. Anitere Flores for state senate, reminds anyone with an email list that there's just a day to go to contribute.

At least one lawmaker (anonymously) groused that Rivera was using state email accounts to solicit contributions, however it appears legal. Rivera solicited via his private email account. In his other email pitch, to taxpayer-types, Rivera fashions himself as the property-tax cutter who will stop tax-cutting legislation from dying in the state Senate.

"As you know, this proposal would cap all property taxes at 1.35% of taxable value while preserving Save Our Homes and all Homestead Exemptions.  This plan cuts property taxes in Florida by 26% statewide," Rivera wrote.

"Unfortunately, once again, our effort to bring much needed property tax relief to the people of Florida died in the Florida Senate. 

"Now I have decided to seek an open seat in the Florida Senate and take our fight for lower property taxes directly into that arena."

Robert

He's wasting his time and those who contribute to his campaign are wasting their money. He can't reinvent himself in 18 months. Voters know he is a hypocritical slimy snake!
