Marc Sarnoff Punched Reid Welch, Witnesses Claim
us crazy. But if two people saw Banana Republican approach someone,
sucker punch him or her, and then pin our victim to the ground,
chances are we'd be taking a ride down to Miami-Dade County jail. In
fact, any Joe Schmo would have been arrested for assault or battery.
But Marc Sarnoff is no regular citizen. He is a Miami city
commissioner who has apparently gotten away with beating up his
former pal and current nemesis, Reid Welch.
Sarnoff is seeking a permanent restraining order against Welch, whom the commissioner claims made a death threat against him. Sarnoff has not returned two phone calls seeking comment. We're waiting on a response from a Miami Police spokesperson.
