IN 2012, KATHERINE FERNANDEZ-RUNDLE SAID THAT WOULD BE HER LAST CAMPAIGN - WELL SHE LIED. LIKE ANY PIG AT THE TROUGH, SHE’LL ONLY LEAVE WHEN THEY PRY HER LIPS FROM THE SLOP BUCKET.  PLUS,  MORE INFO ON THE MIAMI FOUNDATION AND ALL OF THEIR “DONOR ASSISTED FUNDS.”
PART II
MORE ABOUT THE STATE ATTORNEY’S SECRET SLUSH FUND

Yes, it’s true.  Even though she said after her last election in 2012 that she would probably not run again, it seems that Katherine Fernandez-Rundle has no intention of retiring. 


I was talking to a fellow blogger after my story appeared who informed me that they had received a copy of the invitation announcing the Kick-Off Event. I guess I’m not on her Friends and Supporters List.

Her first campaign finance report shows that she loaned herself $50,000 to start off the campaign, and that the October 20th event seemed to be a large office party where most of the donations came from her employees.  You can expect in the months to come that a sizable number of the large law firms who have a vested interest on being on the good-side of the State Attorney will hosting fund raisers, just like in the last election for the Miami City Commission District 2 seat, where a lot of developers held fund raisers in the expectation that if Teresa Sarnoff got elected, they’d continue to have their uninterrupted run on pouring concrete on every empty lot in Miami.


MORE ON THE  SLUSH FUND


I’ve had several inquires from folks want to know more information about Fernandez-Rundle’s slush fund and specifically about how I could prove that the Miami Foundation actually maintained a Katherine Fernandez-Rundle Fund.


That information, along with a list of ALL of the “donor assisted funds” managed by the Miami Foundation can be found by going to the Florida Department of Agriculture’s, Gift Giver’s Guide.  Every Florida non-profit  has to file an annual report, although, they like everyone else are not required to provide a specific financial breakdown for each of the “donor assisted funds.”


To look at the complete list, when you click on the link above and open the page, type in Miami Foundation in the search box that asks for Business Name. When that page opens you’ll see a link for Display per page.  Click on the arrow next to the number 5, and when that box opens click on ALL.


Here is a screen grab of a partial list of these funds that includes the Katherine Fernandez-Rundle Fund.

I think it’s important to point out some additional facts that in my  first story might not have been as clear as I wanted them to be.


Katherine Fernandez-Rundle donated $24,892.98 to her “donor assisted fund” at the Miami Foundation on February 2, 2013.

I discovered that fact in June of 2014 - 16 months after she had donated the money - and that’s what prompted the email above to Javier Soto, the Executive Director of the Miami Foundation.


After I received Soto’s response, I sent an email to Katherine Fernandez-Rundle asking about this money, and it took a couple weeks before I got an email response from Bob Levy, one of  Fernandez-Rundle’s campaign consultants, acknowldging that the money had been transferred, and more importantly, that after almost 16 months that money HAD NOT been given to any charitable endeavor.

It has now been approximately 33 months since the money was transferred from Fernandez-Rundle’s campaign account to the Miami Foundation and TO THIS DAY there has been no acknowledgement or evidence that a single penny of that money has been given for any charitable purpose.


Far more importantly, you would think that regardless of what Katherine Fernandez-Rundle might think of me personally, that she might understand that if her refusal to reveal who has donated money to her fund, and how, or if any money has been disbursed is based on her feelings about my being the one who’s making the request, that she has lost all sense of the responsibility she owes to the community she serves.


I believe it’s worse than just simple pique on the part of Fernandez-Rundle to refuse to acknowledge that she controls a secret fund.  I believe that the real reason that she has refused for the last 18 months to reveal who has donated money to that fund, or whether any of that money has actually been disbursed to any charitable endeavor is because that information would prove to be a great embarrassment to her - and possibly might force her from office - if this information were to be made public!


If Katherine Fernandez-Rundle didn’t have anything to hide, a complete accounting of the money collected and disbursed by her Katherine Fernandez-Rundle Fund  would have occurred a long time ago!


This is definitely Miami, Bitches!
