Dissent Within the Ranks

Some current and former Miami-Dade cops say Carlos Alvarez should not be mayor

For the sake of balance, the anti-Alvarez officers say, it should have been pointed out that a convicted felon is a key campaign volunteer for the former police director. In fact Alvarez previously told New Times that Camilo Padreda, who pleaded guilty to defrauding HUD and admitted attempting to bribe a series of public officials over the decades, is someone he's known for 25 years who has had "his ups and downs." He also happens to have been a powerful Republican fundraiser in the past. If Morales showed bad judgment hiring a disgraced cop, Alvarez has shown equally bad judgment associating with a convict.

Lucky for us, plenty of people are willing to point out both candidates' missteps.
