BREAKING: "Attack flier ties Miami-Dade mayor Gimenez to Donald Trump over 'sweetheart' golf proposal by Patricia Mazzei of Miami Herald




"A flier mailed by the pro-Regalado group shows a photograph of a baseball-cap-clad Gimenez walking next to Trump.
"Republicans Carlos Gimenez and Donald Trump must be stopped!" it says. "While Gimenez and Trump were golfing, they schemed a sweetheart deal to give away the county owned Crandon golf course to Trump."
Gimenez and Trump once golfed the county-owned Crandon Park course on Key Biscayne. The New York developer inquired about buying the property. Gimenez said no but suggested a management deal was possible. Trump briefly tried to take over golf course but, facing local political resistance, dropped the attempt before launching his presidential candidacy.
The other side of the flier shows a campaign-finance report record of Trump's $15,000 contribution, on Jan. 26, 2015, to the political committee backing Gimenez, Miami-Dade Residents First.
"Donald Trump knew to get what he wanted he had to 'pay to play' with Carlos Gimenez," the flier says. "According to Official Records Trump gave Carlos Gimenez a $15,000 check! And hired Carlos Gimenez Jr., to work in Miami-Dade County where his father is the Mayor to push Trump's sleazy deals."
More to follow we're sure ... send #MiamiPapers any details you may have of the Gimenez-Trump relationship, Key Biscayne Golf Course deal, and Carlos J. Gimenez secret pay-to-play/lobbying activities.
