WHAT HAPPENS AT THE ETHICS COMMISSION NOW APPEARS TO STAY WITHIN THE ETHICS COMMISSION
ETHICS COMMISSION GOES INTO STEALTH MODE

Thursday was the last Ethics Commission meeting of the year, and I have to admit that I was a little miffed at not receiving any recognition for my efforts this year.


I neither got a proclamation as a job creator, nor did I get a trophy for having submitted the most ethics complaints,.  In fact, I didn’t even get a Christmas card.


But, since it’s always better to give than to receive, I did share some happiness and joy with the members of the Commission.  Unfortunately, as you can see in the video below, most of them didn’t seem too joyful.


The Michael I mention, is Michael Murawski, the Commission Advocate, who this year spent considerable time job shopping, including trying to get the job of the county’s Inspector General.

Normally, the way the Commission conducts business is that after their regular meeting they go into Closed Session to hear complaints that have reached the Probable Cause hearing phase, and after those cases are heard, the Commission reconvenes in public session where they vote on these cases and then a press release is issued that reveals what happened.


This time that didn’t happen.  Below is the video that I shot of the meeting when it was reconvened, and you will hear in quick succession the vote on the 4 cases that were heard.  You will only hear the case numbers.

The reason I stuck around for this portion of the meeting is that I have several complaints that haven’t been resolved, and I had asked, and had been told that one of those cases would be heard today - not that I was allowed to sit in an witness the hearing, mind you.


Anyhow that case was the one that I filed against Ethics Commission Executive Director Joe Centorino for Abuse of Power and Misuse of Public money in authorizing an investigation into the allegations of a Sunshine Law violation by members of the Hialeah City Commission.


That was the first case that was voted on, and not surprisingly Michael Murawski, booted the investigation over into the court of the new County Inspector General.


So, like I said, usually, the press release that is issued after the meeting provides the names and a little information on each of these cases, even if they were dismissed for whatever reason.


Here is today’s Ethics Commission Press Release.

Had I not stayed and taped the portion of the meeting when they reconvened, neither you, nor I, nor anyone else have known about cases 13-37, 13-39, 13-40 and 13-38.


We still don’t know who the people or complaints were about, and that quite frankly is a less than pleasant state of affairs.


But, I was there, and I at least know that 13-37 was my complaint against Joe Centorino, and surprise, surprise, case 13-38, the case that was continued until February of 2014, turns out to be a case filed by someone against none other than the Miami Parking Authority’s Little Miss Traffic Ticket, Kira Lee Grossman.


Now, that was really a surprise, and we now have something to look forward to in 2014.


I wonder what Kira Lee did to piss someone off enough to file a complaint against her, and why the hearing was postponed until February of 2014.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
