Norman Braman Makes It Rain in Effort to Oust Carlos Alvarez
|Norman Braman flexes his baller status.|
Braman's other PAC, People Who Want Honest Government, collected another $258,000, bringing its total contributions to $718,000. The committee has spent most of its funds on DRC Consulting and G&R Strategies to produce mailers and conduct telephone banking.
Citizens for Truth, Alvarez's recall PAC, received a $46,000 infusion that went to pay for a bunch of campaign workers. Although it appears no amount of campaign cash will save the mayor, who didn't help his cause with the news that a vaguely named group of transit workers was granted paid leave to work on his recall campaign.
In the effort to remove Seijas, her PAC, Abre Los Brazos, picked up $52,000, which was all used to pay for her legal fees in her unsuccessful lawsuit trying to stop the recall. None of her reports reflects any get-out-of-the vote activity, but that should change with the next filing. The group seeking Seijas's recall, Miami Voice, has not filed a new report either.
