ANOTHER ASSHOLE RETIRES WITH A BIG PAYOUT AND PENSION
THIS IS JUAN PASCUAL’S LAST DAY AS THE DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND RECREATION.  HIS LEGACY OF CORRUPTION, SCREWING THE POOCH  AND LEAVING THE PARK’S DEPARTMENT IN WORSE SHAPE THAN WHEN HE ARRIVED 
IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHY MIAMI IS AMONG WORST RUN CITIES

Today Juan Pascual finally leaves the job of Director of the City of Miami Parks & Recreation Department, although rumors persist that he will resurface soon with some sort of contract to continue plundering the city’s bank account.


Pascual leaves while the latest investigation into the corrupt mismanagement of his department continues to meander through City Hall, in part because I have been told by numerous sources that when confronted with having to give testimony to the City’s Independent Auditor, Pascual, along with Luis Cabrera, did what any low life would do: they went out and got lawyers and then refused to give testimony


That’s the way everyone expects crumb bums and high-level Miami city employees to behave: They screw the taxpayers and often the employees of the city, plunder everything they can wrap their arms around, and then lawyer up and refuse to answer questions when asked to explain what’s up.


The amazing thing - actually not amazing at all, but I just say that because it should be AMAZING - is that this latest example of how fast and loose Pascual played with city money and resources was not the first time he abused the public’s trust. 


Back in 2005 Pascual was investigated by the Miami-Dade Ethics Commission as a result of a complaint filed by the City’s Independent Auditor, and while the entire Ethics Commission investigative Memo supported the complaint’s  allegations, here is the paragraph which lays out just how Pascual availed himself of city resources and money, just like your basic pig-at-the-trough.

Mind you, this happened back during the Manny Diaz administration. No one should believe that the City of Miami has become corrupt just during the Regalado administration, the City of Miami has been corrupt for as long as anyone can remember, regardless of who has been the Mayor.


The Memo resulted in a finding of Probable Cause and a settlement where Pascual admitted to being a low-life, who was essentially screwing the taxpayers every day he showed up for work. (The complaint and the above Memo can be read HERE.)


As you read the investigators discovered that over $200,000 had passed through the private company operated out of Grapeland Park by Pascual’s father while Pascual Jr. was the park superintendent. 


His punishment was paying a fine totaling $1,750.00.  Who says public corruption doesn’t pay handsomely when you can screw the taxpayers out of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars and pay a fine of $1750.00.

You would think that after pulling a stunt like this Pascual would have been fired. 


Nope!  Not in the City of Miami!  Screwing the taxpayers out of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars is actually looked upon with envy by other schemers looking for a way to screw the taxpayers, while the higher up’s recognize that someone with this much ability to screw the taxpayers is someone to be kept around to help them do their own dirty deeds.


So Pascual wasn’t fired, even though he should have been, but instead he was transferred to GSA by the Manny Diaz gang where he hung out until he was transferred back to Parks by Regalado flunky, City Manager Johnny “The Doormat” Martinez, and promoted to Parks Director last year, where in short order he managed to repay the favor by helping Cabrera with his family problem, and who knows what other questionable deeds.


Now as he leaves, there are 2 open investigations, not only involving his alleged participation in the Luis Cabrera nepotism hustle involving Luis’s half brother Juan and his wife, but also  how temporary and part time employees have been treated, although in fairness, that’s a problem that has been around far longer than Pascual’s tenure as Director.


No doubt, there will be a retirement party, and all the usual ass-kissers and low-lifes will show up to glad-hand, and tell Pascual was a wonderful job he did, but in fact a lot of Parks employees are happy to see him leave, although many of them don’t see a silver lining with his departure.


While supposedly 80 or so individuals have applied for the job of Park’s Director, there is a strong belief that Pascual managed to position one of his “people” to get the job, even though she doesn’t have the qualifications.  The failure to have qualifications has never seemed to be a concern to Tomas Regalado, because the city of full of incompetent morons who’ve received waivers allowing them to work at jobs they’re unqualified to hold.


Another problem that will outlive Pascual’s tenure as Director are the allegations of retribution that have been surfacing regarding the treatment of several employees who were part of the group who showed up at City Hall last year in support of Yamilet Moreno and other part time employees who complained that they had been denied equal access to promotions.


Jose Arias and Yunier Trujillo have submitted Whistleblower complaints against Operations Director Rafael Gonzalez, a Pascual appointee .  Here they are.

At the end of today Juan Pascual walks out the door with a big payout from his DROP account, a fat lifetime pension, and all the money he managed to screw the taxpayers out of over the years.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
