Each year, New Times puts together a list of the sketchiest politicians and unholiest celebrities and weirdest human beings to call the Magic City home. So who made the filthy cut this year?

He presented himself as a multi-millionaire pauper. Pobrecito Jeffrey Loria came before the Miami City Commission and the Miami-Dade County Commission, hat in hand, bemoaning that his Florida Marlins franchise could not finance a stadium to play in. Conveniently, he wouldn't allow the public to view the team's financial statements because the documents would show the Marlins had earned $48.9 million in profits in 2008 and 2009 combined. Thanks to sports web-site Deadspin, which got hold of the Marlins' and other teams financials and published them, Miami-Dade taxpayers found out what a sniveling, conniving, slithering slug of a businessman Loria is.

And he's still at it, refusing to spend the money required to keep the team's best players. This year we said goodbye to Cody Ross and Dan Uggla.
