Justin Lamar Sternad Tells FBI That David Rivera Was Behind His Campaign

The Herald also claims that Alliegro herself stormed into the office of Rapid Mail, a company that printed out costly campaign mailers for Sternad (most of which attacked Garcia, and made no mention of criticism of Rivera) and has connections to Rivera as well, and yelled, "Did you read the story? You got to get rid of everything. The s--t hit the fan! I got to calm down David and Lamar. This is bad!"

Sure, there's always that possibility, that shred of plausible denial, that Sternad is throwing Rivera under the bus to protect himself. Regardless, he does have to explain exactly how his campaign was financed. He makes $30,000 a year and according to his campaign finance reports loaned himself $64,000.

Yet the story seems to check up with everything else that's been reported before, including the story previously told to the Herald by campaign vendors.

The only thing that doesn't quite check out is the common sense factor. If true, how in the hell did Rivera, Alliegro and Sternad (to the extent he really knew what was going on) think this was going to work out?

Garcia is a well known name in the district. He's ran twice before for Congress as the Democratic nominee in the area that previously encompassed much of District 25. He's the former executive director of the Cuban American National Foundation, and an Obama appointee. Did they think Sternad, a hotel night worker, could actually beat him and then flop the general election? Did they at least hope they could knock off enough support for Garcia, so that another Democratic candidate, Gloria Romero Roses, would win the primary and hopefully not run as effective campaign as the more experienced Garcia? And how did they expect this sloppily run conspiracy to actually not be detected?

Especially considering Rivera's reputation for scandal (see the links below for just a small taste). Perhaps because for all the accusations and investigations he hasn't been nailed for anything yet, but it's not looking like he'll be so lucky this time.

 @Myrantz  @Anthonyvop1 Not a fan of Rivera but mooching jerks like Garcia who never held a real job in his life and bases his entire political campaign on taking from the productive to pay for votes from the unproductive is the type of slime that is ruining my country.

@Anthonyvop1 I'll be more than happy to, but I don't live in the imaginary world. Do you know after tax break and subsidies GE paid $0 for tax.

 @Myrantz  @Anthonyvop1 Regulations barely affect business?   OK Then I bet you are willing to do my government paperwork for me for free!

Do you even have a clue what it is like to run a business or are you just another jealous, moocher who wants to stick it to the "Evil Corporations"?

@Anthonyvop1 regulations barely affect business some company just looking for excuse to move their business to another country. After their tax break and all the way they cheat the system corporations pay less than the average rate, please stop whining for big corporations

Interesting how you skipped over-regulation as well as failed to mention that the US has the Highest Corporate tax in the WORLD.

And i never mentioned salary even though I am a firm believer that people should actually EARN their pay.

@Anthonyvop1 lmao , funny when these online characters acting like they are a business man in real life. If you ever have a job you would understand why people need a pay raise. Business tax is at the lowest right now in the past fifty years. The Bush tax cut hasn't expired yet. If things are difficult for you don't blame the current government, it might be you who is just a failure

     What can I say.? I actually work for a living.  I am a small business owner and actual am a productive member of society. 

Regulations are strangling me and others.

Taxes are too high.

The National Sales tax is killing business.

I have to compete with politically connected who get government mandated preference and assistance.

Entitlements have run amok. 

     We have arrived at a point where we will witness the death of democracy because the moochers will just keep voting for a pay raise.

 @Myrantz  @Anthonyvop1 Our economic crisis is because of high taxes, Government cronyism and over regulation.

Greed is never a problem.

@Anthonyvop1 I'm talking about taxes. Welfare has been in existence for years, you trying say the economic crisis is because of welfare not because of corporate greed and the two wars,

"No one is taking money from the productive to give to the unproductive"

 

I guess you never heard of taxes and welfare. 

Myrantz
Myrantz

@Anthonyvop1 Smh, so you would rather a crook because(accordingto you ) the other guy never held a job. No one is taking money from the productive to give to the unproductive, all they want is that certain people pay their fare share. I don't think the government should take from the middle class and hand it to the rich either
