Miami: Mayor Forgets Who Gave Him the Porsche

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

For a few weeks over the summer, the mayor of North Miami was riding in style on the streets of a city that had been pinched hard by the recession.

The dark blue, four-door 2010 Porsche Panamera that sat in Mayor Andre Pierre’s city parking spot has a sticker price of $100,000.
And if the mayor needed to get somewhere in a hurry, the Panamera — with its all-leather cream interior, high-end surround-sound system and dual-zone climate control — can hit 193 mph in seventh gear.
But the ride raised a ruckus: It wasn’t the mayor’s car, so who gave it to him? Why did he not report it as a gift or a loan? And just how long did hizzoner cruise around in it?
