Miami: Developer Colombo In Beach Investigation

Post on April 17, 2015 by The Victoria Law Group 0 Comments

One of my pet peeves is the way in which corruption is creeping into all aspects of our daily lives, I call it corruption creep.  The “tip” to show appreciation for a job well done, is becoming the “grease” that get things done, to the “kickback” that is the only way to get things done.  In construction contracts, I think we sort of suspect that Malcolm Gladwell’s tipping point was crossed a long time ago, especially in Miami.  In the most recent case, investigators are asking why a developer considered a front-runner to overhaul Miami Beach’s convention center paid $25,000 to an ex-con with ties to the city’s purchasing director.  Curious, isn’t it?  But really, did you expect anything else.
