I don't know if this will change this lady's horrible record and her history of going against her constituents and sometimes even making votes to antagonize her constituents. I have voted against this awful woman in every election I could and plan to until we can permanently retire this awful witch.


Let's see if Mr Hernandez can do more to communicate the Congresswoman's position on a government shutdown and debt ceiling increase in more precise terms beyond her current stance: "We're working on it."

Keith is a key political operative in Miami who has managed her campaigns for years... He is in her "inner circle" and has extensive dc experience from his time at CHLI. Smart move for her.


I thought the government was shutdown? Or are shutdowns only meant for the "little people", Mrs. Ileona Ross-Leona Helmsley? They shut down our government, but she is busy at work making staffing decisions. Apparently, she has the essential employees needed to interview, to hire and to communicate to the public the "essential" news about her new advisor? Shutdown, yes or no? Insulting. The families of furloughed employees should be outraged. The timing is not only questionable, but a slap in the face to us little people.
