The appointment of Commissioner “Ethics” Sarnoff as the new Chairman of the City Commission by His Ignorance, The Mayor, now makes it imperative that Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones and her lawyer identify who the unnamed City Commissioner at the meeting on the weekend of November 14-15, 2009, with Regalado and City Attorney Julie Bru was.


As I pointed out in my last story about Spence-Jones’ lawsuit, Commissioner “Ethics” took some extraordinary liberties in arbitrarily identifying Jose Quinon as the Mayor’s defense attorney in this case, even before any outside attorney could advice the members of the Commission on how to proceed through the thorny thicket of legal issues that this lawsuit has created, and given that Sarnoff’s actions were clearly intended as nothing other than a gift to the Mayor, the taxpayers and citizens of Miami now have every right to know just what the deal is between Sarnoff and Regalado, and whether they are, and will in the future be operating in conjunction as either co-defendants, or defendant and friendly witness in this case.


The selection of Sarnoff as the new Chairman of the Commission was in many ways was a foregone conclusion.


Regalado would not reappoint Suarez since Suarez now lurks on the sidelines waiting to see when the best time is to announce that he too is running for Mayor.


He would never appoint Spence-Jones. 


Frank Carollo is too crazy and unreliable, so he wouldn’t appoint him.  That left Sarnoff and Gort. 


Gort might - and a small might at that - get removed from office over all the free bus signs that FUEL advertising plastered in his District as part of an undisclosed campaign contribution to his reelection, and Carollo himself also faces being removed because of his calling the Chief of Police over the traffic stop Ethics Complaint that I filed against him, so again, that left Sarnoff.


As a last resort, Regalado could have made himself the non-voting Chairman of the Commission, but he's too old, too tired, and definitely not willing to do the work required to chair these meetings.  Again, it left Sarnoff.


But even with the obviousness of the choice  i'm sure that the appointment did not come before an agreement of some sort was reached between these two, and any deal had to first and foremost deal with the the Spence-Jones lawsuit. 


This lawsuit is a really big deal.  No other lawsuit like this has ever been filed by one elected official against a fellow elected official in Florida alleging Organized Racketeering and Criminal Conspiracy (RICO).


In the months to come this lawsuit and the revelations that start coming out as documents and court filings are made public are going to become the topic de jure in the news media and Regalado has to start now doing everything he can protect himself.


This is why the identity of that unnamed City Commissioner becomes so important.


If, as I believe, Sarnoff was that unnamed Commissioner, then he’s automatically conflicted.  He will become a witness whose testimony as to not only what took place at the meeting, but more importantly, what conversations took place before and after that meeting, could become critically important to Regalado’s defense.


Even if it’s not Sarnoff, but rather Carollo, all of this remains the same.


My choice of Sarnoff as the unnamed Commissioner rests on the knowledge that in 2009 Sarnoff and Regalado were very close, and that not only was there no love lost between Sarnoff and Spence-Jones, but that after she was removed from office, Sarnoff wasted little time in wresting away the control of the OMNI CRA from the Reverend/Commissioner Richard Dunn, Spence-Jones’ replacement. That could be seen as evidence of Sarnoff being part of the conspiracy, since he benefited politically from Spence-Jones’ removal


For those who would argue that Sarnoff and Suarez who were tied at the hip as Sarnoff worked last year to help raise money to get Suarez elected as Mayor, remember that first and foremost ALL of the members of the City Commission are corrupt.  EVERY SINGLE ONE!


What has become apparent to me over the last couple years is that even under the worst of circumstances - and Regalado and Spence-Jones are a classic example - these people are capable of compartmentalizing their deals and their disagreements when self-interest is at stake.


So, while Sarnoff might be in Suarez’s camp for the upcoming election, he is definitely in Regalado’s camp when it comes to Spence-Jones’ lawsuit.


But, no matter what, the time has come for Spence-Jones and her lawyers to reveal who that unnamed City Commissioner was, because from this point on, anything that person does has a potential financial impact to the taxpayers of the City of Miami.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
