A 'capitol gain' for LeMieux

08 CC2

Miami political consultant Carlos Curbelo, who specializes in Hispanic media and outreach, will be leaving the private sector to serve as state director for newly appointed U.S. Sen. George LeMieux.

Curbelo's public relations/consulting firm, Capitol Gains, will be run by Curbelo's associate, Roy Schultheis.

Curbelo, 29, has worked for Gov. Charlie Crist, Reps. Mario and Lincoln Diaz-Balart and former presidential candidates John McCain and Fred Thompson. Curbelo will be based in LeMieux's new Miami office.

Curbelo is among a handful of Crist allies who will be moving over to LeMieux's office and the governor's Senate campaign. His former spokeswoman, Vivian Myrtetus, is already working as LeMieux's deputy chief of staff. Maureen Jaeger, who is on Crist's staff in South Florida, is also headed to Washington.

The fact that a sitting Governor is strategically placing his former and current staff in an office that he thinks might be his in the future is despicable. And now a Consultant to top it off? What a sham. It's confirmed, LeMieux is only a lapdog for the Governor.
