Whilly Bermudez is a right-handed, right-leaning, right-of-way, righteous republican, and as Tim Elfrink reported Monday on Riptide, he's got the support of Tubbs from Miami Vice in his run for a seat in the Florida House of Reps for the 116th district (unincorporated West Dade and Kendall).
And in a move that may beguile liberals for generations to come, Whilly Bermudez is giving away food to poor people for free.
According to a press release, "On Saturday - November 21, 2009 at 10:30 a.m. he is leading a massive effort to feed the hungry of the Miami Rescue Mission in downtown Miami located on 2020 NW 1st Ave, Miami, FL, 33127."
The food drive is also very concerned with alleviating the struggles of water shortage. Water donations are highly encouraged.
Whilly Bermudez has already secured 100 volunteers for the food drive, but is looking for more, and is providing free transporttion for them. He also seeks corporate sponsors. Interested parties should dial up 305-807-1621 to be a part of the action.
