The bizarre antics of Hallandale Beach government officials have gone past public accusations of anal bleaching and comparisons to Hitler. Here’s the Miami Herald‘s lede from the latest installment:
It’s a spy-drama love story with a late plot twist straight out of Hollywood. Well, Hallandale Beach, actually. It begins in the lead-up to the 2016 local elections. Victor Elbeze, a French national and failed perfume entrepreneur, placed illegal tracking devices on the cars of two Hallandale Beach commissioners and one candidate for a commission seat. At the time he was working as a private investigator for a mystery client.
Elbeze’s fingerprint was found on a tracker, and after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor — illegal installation of tracking devices — Elbeze paid a $293 fine and Florida Department Law Enforcement closed the case last year. That became the prominent narrative until Oct. 3 of this year when Carmen Gimenez took the podium for public comment during a regular commission meeting.
Read the rest. And yes, Russians are involved.
The current mayor is now accused of putting a tracking device on the old mayor’s car in a complicated ploy to dig up dirt and take her job. I just don’t understand how these people have the energy for this. https://t.co/lILGQrokkz
