Hidden money. A shadowy candidate. Missing campaign-finance reports.
That’s not just a description of Justin Lamar Sternad’s crime-filled congressional campaign against U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia in 2012.
It also describes yet another Garcia rival from two years before: Jose Rolando “Roly” Arrojo.
But unlike Sternad, Arrojo has ties to Garcia’s former top advisor who resigned Friday amid an unrelated criminal investigation into fraudulent absentee ballot requests in the Aug. 14 Democratic primary.
