NAMED MIAMI’S #1 POLITICAL BLOGGER IN 2012

                                    “Crespo has become a leader in confronting Miami’s most   
                                    powerful politicians and public officials.  He has done the     
                                    best job of informing citizens and law enforcement officials     
                                    when our leaders are stealing from the public piggy bank.”
                                                
                                                                                            - Francisco Alvarez         
                                                                                              MIAMI NEW TIMES

ARE YOU TIRED OF THE CORRUPTION?  YOU CAN DO SOMETHING
ABOUT IT.

The Crespogram Report is able to reveal and report the stories that it does only because of the willingness of countless City of Miami employees and others who have grown weary and angry at the level of corruption, malfeasance and incompetence within the Regalado administration to provIde me with the real, inside information on all the dirty deeds.


In addition to the City of Miami, my principle areas of interest and reportage are the Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics and Public Trust, and Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle.


Unlike what passes for the rest of the “news media” in Miami, I am not part of any Family and Friends Plan, nor am I afraid to write about ANYONE! 


I’ve had a long history of activism and willingness to stand up to government.  As a contract photographer for the AP in 2000, I was one of a number of news media photographers and reporters who were attacked and/or shot with rubber bullets during the Democratic Convention, and I became the lead plaintiff in the landmark lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department that led to their rewriting the policies and procedures to allow the news media to cover event even after they had become labeled as unlawful assemblies.


My photojournalism resulted in the coffee table book: Protest In The Land Of Plenty, an e-Book about the 2008 campaign for President. My photographs are included in collections of the New York Historical Society  exhibition about the World Trade Center Attack, the 1999 WTO Battle For Seattle, and in numerous textbooks, magazines and documentary films, as wel as a short PBS documentary about my work that won numerous awards, including 2 Emmys.


Prior to my publishing a blog, I was involved in a 6 year struggle with the administration of Florida Governor Lawton Chiles and his efforts to privatize the State Film Office that resulted in over a dozen public records lawsuits, and the imposition of an injunction against the organization as well instigating several investigations by the State Comptroller and OPPACA, and the Governor’s Inspector General’s Office that eventually led to the Florida Legislature revoking the funding for that group, and to their being abolished. Several of my lawsuits became legal citations in the Florida Sunshine Manual and helped shape the laws on the obligation of Florida’s public/private partnerships complying with the Sunshine Laws.


For 30 years, my “day job” consisted of working as a Line Producer, Production Manager, Assistant Director and Location Scout and Manager on feature films, TV series, TV commercials, music videos and corporate films. I have been fortunate to work with many gifted individualsmon numerous award-winning projects that have allowed me to travel to many parts of the world. Today, I limit myself to location scouting and managing projects so as to provide me the time needed to produce the Crespogram Report.


If you have information on a politician, government official, cop, prosecutor or anyone who is benefiting from the illegal or unethical actions of these people and the information is valid and verifiable, I will write about it!


There are several ways you can contact or get information to me.
