WHAT’S THAT ABOUT NOT TAKING GIFTS
FIRST ALBERTO GOT CAUGHT HIDING HIS WEENIE IN A HERALD REPORTER, THEN I CAUGHT HIM TAKING FREE TICKETS, AND NOW IT TURNS OUT HE WILL TAKE GIFTS 
PART III

It’s not the gifts that pisses me and other people off, but it’s the rank hypocrisy that always seems to trail behind these public officials who have that sanctimonious air about them when they pretend that they are purer than the driven snow.


Take Alberto Carvalho. I vaguely remembered he had some sort of woman problem before he became Superintendent, but I didn’t really give it much thought before I wrote my first story about him a couple days ago, but when I got new information that’s the basis for this story I figured I should look up the Google link to Alberto Carvalho scandal.


Not only did Alberto get caught screwing around on his wife, but he was screwing a Miami Herald reporter who in turn was not only hiding his weenie for him, and writing about how much she liked the things he did to her, but she was also shilling for him in his efforts to get the job of school superintendent by writing slanted stories meant to bolster his chances.


For those who like me either forgot, or didn’t pay attention at the time, this is the kind of email exchanges that the lovebirds used to engage in, courtesy of Frank Alvarado of the Miami New Times.

The things one says when they’re in lust.


Alas, for Carvalho, once he had to give up “Fuzzy” and became School Superintendent, he had to change his tune so he became a sanctimonious hypocrite, although I suspect that he’s been one all his life.


In my first story  a couple days ago, I included the Christmas Message that I had received from his PR flack where Carvalho waxed movingly about “the blessings in our lives,” and how important it was to “focus on the spirit of sharing and kindness to our fellow man.”

As you can see, he closed his Message with a promise that, “As I have always done in the past, any gifts which I do receive will be donated to one of those organizations.”


But when he wrote that, he only meant the cheap gifts from the little people.


You see, last October, Carvalho was interviewed for INDULGE, the Miami Herald’s” monthly magazine that targeted to those in our community who believe in conspicuous consumption.


The story was titled, Form & Function, and it went all gushy about how he was “possibly America’s best dressed school principal!”

The key to these interview/puff pieces is to try to come off humble, and Carvalho gave it his best shot, while making himself seem both a fashionista, and a plain guy, wearing plain clothes.  Except for the ties.

The ties!  Gifts from the Chairman of the School Board so expensive that although he makes over $200,000 a year, they would stretch “my buying potential - sometime it’s Hermes or Ferragamo.”


And what did he tell the school teachers, the kiddies and their parents in his sanctimonious Christmas Message?

“As I have always done in the past, any gifts which I do receive will be donated to one of those organizations.”

Carvalho is a lying hypocrite who figures he can hang with the rich folks while “styling and profiling,” and then blow smoke up the ass of the regular folks who, by and large, never heard of INDULGE magazine, and who probably have better use for $200 - $300 than to buy a tie.


It’s about arrogance and a willful belief in the kind of “fuck you” attitude that unfortunately prevails in the political class in this city where lying, cheating and ignoring as many laws as possible is considered the way to get ahead.


For the record, my complaint to the Florida Ethics Commission included Carvalho receiving these ties.


As I wrote in my first story a couple days ago, I think I’ve established that he’s taken tickets that he didn’t report to events where he and his wife were just passive attendees, so what else could he have taken that he didn’t bother to report? That’s a problem with being a sneak about refusing to admit that you’ve taken tickets worth possibly tens of thousands of dollars. It opens you up to speculation that you’re capable of taking other “gifts” and keeping them a secret too.


If he’s taken tickets and ties, what else has Alberto taken?  What about all the money in the School Bard bond issue? Bond issues mean contracts, and contracts sometime leads to payoffs.


Anybody got any juicy stories they’d like to share?  I’m all ears!


It’s Miami, Bitches!
