AFTER REFUSING TO ADMIT FOR 156 DAYS HOW MUCH MONEY IS IN THE KATHERINE FERNANDEZ-RUNDLE FUND, OR WHAT SHE HAS DONE WITH THE MONEY,  THE CRESPOGRAM HAS DISCOVERED ANOTHER DONOR ADVISED FUND WITH $2.6 MILLION IN ANONYMOUS DONATIONS CREATED BY THE STATE ATTORNEY STASHED INSIDE THE MIAMI FOUNDATION

$2.6 MILLION DISCOVERED IN ANOTHER FERNANDEZ-RUNDLE DONOR ADVISED FUND

A CRESPOGRAM EXCLUSIVE
(C) 2015 - 2016     ATTRIBUTION IS REQUIRED

In October of 2013, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle created the State Attorney’s Fund for a Safer and Healthier Community (SASH), within the Miami Foundation, and to start it off on the right foot, the fund received two anonymous donations totaling $1759,066.68.


In the years since then, the Fund has continued to receive large anonymous donations that now have the Fund’s balance at $2,627,995.123.


During that time the Fund has paid out a total of $33,778.77 in fees.  Not ONE PENNY has been given or spent by this fund for either a safer or healthier community!


The problem of the Miami-Dade State Attorney - or any other elected official for that matter - receiving millions of dollars in anonymous donations for what appears to be a vanity enterprise should be a concern to everyone in the community, most importantly to anyone and everyone who has an interest in the criminal justice system in Miami-Dade County.


The use of these anonymous, donor advised funds created within the Miami Foundation should also be a concern to people in this community.  I have previously alleged that these donor advised funds operate as little more than legal money laundering operations that provide the individuals who create them with opportunities for tax avoidance and for politicians the opportunity to receive sizable “donations” from people looking to buy influence by shielding these “donations” from public scrutiny.


How many people in this community are capable of donating the kinds of money that have been received by this fund, and more importantly, why would anyone give the State Attorney this kind of money so that it can sit in a bank account drawing interest and paying operating fees to the Miami Foundation?


The continued refusal of what passes for the news media in this community to address these questions is a blot on the notion of open government, transparency and casts a shadow on the criminal justice system, because no one in law enforcement, and especially a State Attorney should be maintaining secret funds with millions of dollars in unaccounted money.


The question that every news media outlet in South Florida should be asking Katherine Fernandez-Rundle is: Who is giving you this kind of money, and what do they expect for it?


Here are the financial reports that detail the financial activity of this fund.
