David Rivera Named One of the Most Corrupt Congressmen

With Anthony Wiener's sext scandal and Allen West's ongoing shenanigans, it's easy to forget just how horrible Miami's Rep. David Rivera is. The freshman Republican representative has been under investigation by several state and federal agencies since taking office. Unsurprisingly, he has now been named among the "Most Corrupt" politicians in D.C. by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

"Multiple agencies on both the state and federal level are actively investigating the Miami member for a whole host of shady schemes that have lined his personal pockets, enriched his friends and family, and shown a total disregard for the truth," CREW writes.

Most of Rivera's ethics troubles stem from his dealings with parimutuels. Funny how a politician's ethics seem to go right out the window when rich gambling interests are involved. As a result, Rivera is under investigation by the FBI, IRS, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Miami-Dade Police public corruption unit, and Miami-Dade State Attorney's office.

Here's CREW's full report on Rivera:

If David Rivera is found guilty then they should also investigate and if found guilty prosecute the owners of Magic City Casino. Two of the owners of Magic City Casino /  Flagler Dog Track Mr. Alex Havenick and his mother Ms Barbara Havenick are both Lawyers. They should have known better than to deal with a crooked Politician like David Rivera . The Federal Government should also investigate  Mr Scott Savin Magic City Casino / Flagler Dog Track Chief Operation Officer.

Tax Evasion , Money Laundering, Illegal Political Contributions, ....wow who would ever think that wealthy rich white folks ...would be breaking the law

Rivera is from the "Magic City" ( city of illusions) so you couldn't expect anything but what he is accused of.

Now how about that traitorous scumbag Ileana Ros-Lithinem or whatever the fuck that bootlickers name is?

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is a left-wing attack dog masquerading as a "non-partisan watchdog."It is headed by 40-year-old former prosecutor Melanie Sloan a former congressional staff member for liberal lawmakers Michigan's John Conyers and Charles SchumerSince its founding in 2003, CREW has worked through legal and regulatory channels to press allegations of impropriety almost exclusively against Republicans.An analysis of CREW’s “watchdog” activities reveals a systematic effort to disproportionat ely target Republicans and conservative-leaning groups with frivolous lawsuits, ethics complaints, and petitions for investigations by law enforcement agencies. An analysis of CREW’s activities demonstrates that it disproportionat ely targets conservatives by a ratio of more than 8-to-1. At the same time, the corresponding federal oversight agencies responsible for investigating CREW’s complaints indicates that, historically, Democrats have been investigated far more often for ethics violations.
