We took this from Eye On Miami, who isn;t going to let all the corruption associated with the Pink Elephant die so easiily.
"Any story accompanying the implosion of the Miami Arena is incomplete unless it includes a detailed cost accounting: for instance, how many dollars in income and fees were paid to the highly connected lobbyists who managed to secure the adjacent parking lots to the arena?
Surely someone knows and would like to share that information with eyeonmiami readers."
Unfortunately it's a lot easier to do away with a 16,000 capacity arena than it is public corruption.
