Morales resigns from Miami-Dade DEC...again

The chairman of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, Jimmy Morales, is expected to resign tonight at the end of the monthly meeting.

Yes, this is the same Jimmy Morales who announced last month that he was stepping down, pending the election of a new leader.

But sticklers for the party bylaws said the lawyer and former county commissioner had to give a date. And so tonight, he will.

If you're a glutton for this kind of internal bickering, the meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the American Legion, 6445 N.E. 7th Ave., Miami.

In addition to the usual suspects, Joe Garcia of the New Democratic Network is planning to attend. Garcia, a Democratic strategist who specializes in Hispanic outreach, is thinking about running for chairman.
