Per my earlier post this morning, What's worse? The galling audacity of the feckless Sun-Sentinel giving free space to thoroughly-mendacious Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper, 16 weeks before the election, or her stridently self-serving lies re Red-Light cameras in Hallandale Beach, which she and her Rubber Stamp Crew rammed thru to gain more revenue for the city? American Traffic Solutions could NOT be any happier for the free plug, and will no doubt have a campaign check to Cooper on its way soon -if it's not there already; @MayorCooperhttp://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2012/07/whats-worse-galling-audacity-of.html
I forgot to show this important link earlier.
It's from page 3 of Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper's most recently filed Treasurer's Report, which lists campaign contributions, and shows $2,000 from American Traffic Solutions-related individuals and entities.
And within ten days of filing that Treasurer's Report, she was able to shill for ATS in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, even without mentioning their name, since everyone who's paying close attention to the issue knows exactly who's doing what.
She is such a good friend to ATS!
Just imagine how gleeful the mayor must've been after being contacted by the newspaper, knowing that the newspaper was going to give her space to not only pat herself on the back, one of her favorite things to do, but to also allow her to blow a kiss to a financial contributor of hers.
I don't, rather I think she laughed at being able to get away with it.
No wonder she wants her many friends in the Florida League of Cities, which she has recently headed, to do exactly what she and Hallandale Beach does, regardless of what taxpayers or the facts show.
It pays to.
At least for egotistical despots like her.
