EVERY single African-American state Senator & state Representative and Hallandale Beach City Commissioner whose Majority-Minority district includes Hallandale Beach either looked the other way as TENS OF MILLIONS of CRA dollars were wasted, actively fought AGAINST efforts in Broward County and in Tallahassee to ensure that an accurate public audit was performed so that residents would know where that money went, or, were themselves the beneficiary of the CRA funds.
Why? Why indeed?

The same Anthony A. Sanders whose resignation from office was NEVER ever mentioned in a Miami Herald story, much less, the reasons for it, and what might've happened to him if he had not done so.

Fireworks! Tonight @ #HallandaleBeach City Comm. mtg., after almost hr of Orthodox Jews making appeals ranging fm common sense compromise to lawsuit threats re erecting an eruv, Comm. Annabelle Lima-Taub accuses Mayor London & Comm. Lazarow of being "anti-Semitic Jews." 🙄Kaboom!— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) June 7, 2018
Shocking that @MiamiHerald devotes so many inches to #eruv story yet 4 MANY YEARS, IGNORED reality: EVERY African-American #FL state/#HallandaleBeach elected rep w/tie to HB looked the other way as TENS OF MILLIONS of #CRA $ were wasted! Why? https://t.co/r7WiqgFBII @Buddynevins— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) July 25, 2018
And as you read along, ask yourself why the article never states when the City Commission meeting with all the fireworks took place.
It wasn't in April, it was in June, and the public spoke in June not on an actual agenda item but under Public Comments. Seems kind of relevant, don't you think?
As does the fact that threatening public officials with lawsuits during public meetings if they don't do what you want tends not to work out so well, no matter what kind of success you've had elsewhere.

These observant Jews need a lifeline to leave their homes during the Sabbath. But the city is "stonewalling." Is this just bureaucracy or is it anti-Semitism?https://t.co/XvbfTw5Y9h pic.twitter.com/u5kQvdxdge— Miami Herald (@MiamiHerald) July 25, 2018

#SoFL- Why does @MiamiHerald write so much abt #eruv story in #HallandaleBeach, 6 weeks later -and drop hints of anti-Semitism- but for YEARS completely ignored a more compelling story re city's #CRA wasting TENS of MILLIONS of DOLLARS over several years?https://t.co/ceZrEE2A6O— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) July 30, 2018
