Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Little things

Here is the most recent Howard Gary news.

MIAMI -- Ten years ago, Howard V. Gary's political career was tainted by his connection to a kickback scheme. Now he has learned he won't be allowed to pursue a seat on the county commission, but it's not because of his past.

Gary had filed to run for the District 3 seat on the Miami-Dade County commission. The Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General reported receiving a sworn statement that challenged Gary's qualifications to run for a county commission seat.

Monday, the OIG said that an investigation found Gary ineligible to enter the election or to hold office since he is not a qualified elector -- not a registered voter -- in Miami-Dade County.

Last month I called Howard Gary South Florida's version of Marion Barry. A corrupt former politician who was trying to stage a comeback. TFM now admits he was wrong in that comparison.

Marion Barry at least knew to register to vote.
