Not Even MORE Shady Dealings By the Dems?!!!
Another Colossal Democrat Rip-Off
By Carl Hiaasen
If your mother drove up in a new Cadillac Escalade, you'd probably say something like, ``Nice ride, Ma. Where'd you get it?''
We're supposed to believe that such an exchange never took place between U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek and his mother, former Rep. Carrie Meek, who's been enjoying an Escalade provided by a developer for whom her son has sought $4 million in federal funds.
Both the Meeks say they never discussed their respective roles in advancing Boston developer Dennis Stackhouse's ill-fated plans for the Poinciana Biopharmaceutical Park in Liberty City.
Perhaps mom and son should have chatted.
Miami-Dade officials pulled the plug on the project last week, after a Miami Herald series revealed that Stackhouse had diverted more than $500,000 from an anti-poverty agency while spending freely on lobbyists, lawyers and strategic campaign contributions.
