Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. In this special online edition, Luke encourages Miami-Dade residents to exercise your right to vote the bums out of office.
People should vote for the recall. Miami-Dade County residents need to participate in the democratic process. I did. I voted to recall Mayor Carlos Alvarez so I can get to work to become your next mayor. It's time to get this shit straight. Just look at the horrible state of this county.
Property taxes are out of control. County executive salaries are going through the roof. The public transit is all fucked up. The public hospital, Jackson Memorial, is all fucked up. The airport is all fucked up. The entire county government is in absolute disarray. If you haven't voted already, you have five days left to start cleaning house. Vote yes to the recall.
Tune into Actualidad 1020 AM this afternoon at 12:40 p.m., when Uncle Luke will discuss the recall and my mayoral campaign.
