Lucie Tondreau, North Miami Mayor, to Be Charged With Mortgage Fraud

Categories: Crime

It's not North Miami if the mayor isn't involved in some sort of scandal.

According to the Miami Herald, North Miami Mayor Lucie Tondreau is set to be charged by the FBI with mortgage fraud. Tondreau had previously been investigated for connections to alleged absentee-ballot fraud but had so far escaped charges on that.

The Herald reports FBI agents knocked on Tondreau's door early this morning, but the mayor wasn't home. She might be out of town.

The specifics of the case are not known, but records will be unsealed later today when some of Tondreau's codefendants appear in court.

Tondreau, elected last June as North Miami's first female Haitian mayor, was previously under scrutiny when her private business office was raided in connection with 60 unlawful absentee-ballot requests submitted online. Tondreau denied any wrongdoing and said she would cooperate with that investigation. Nacivre Charles, Tondreau's campaign treasurer, was subsequently arrested.

Tondreau won office after Andre Pierre, despite several investigations and scandals, avoided charges and completed two terms as mayor.

Tondreau beat another previous North Miami mayor, Kevin Burns, in last year's election.

....................this is what we (WHITE people) mean when we say there are BLACK people who do more damage to their OWN than white people will ever do

rev sharpton is a prime example of holding BLACK people under his thumb for his own benefit

i guarantee you this criminal robbed her OWN haitian people and haitian community just for her own benefit a stole more than any WHITE person could have from them

Freedom to be a criminal ... Status quo for most Miami/DADE politicians

John, with that logic we would have to get rid of Cubans, and Venezuelans as well.

Get rid of those Haitians and you got rid of the problem! Somebody had to say it.

"my coco is douce" will certainly come in handy in an all woman's jail.

@frankd4  All races commit corruption (Bernie Madoff or Enron anyone?) Watch any episode of American Greed. It is overwhelming white criminals who commit fraud and Ponzi schemes and they are usually robbing their "own" people too. And lets not even get into which group is more notorious for Wall Street and Stock fraud.  So what was your point of even bringing race into the equation?

...............and watch all the HATIANs that will BLAME WHITE law enforcement for "setting up" BLACK people


then who is making it racist ?


BLACK people need to pursue and criminalize other BLACK people who commit crime and not BLAME the white law enforcement establishment for being against them and keeping them down

@VoiceofReason ..........Q:"So what was your point of even bringing race into the equation? "


A: that BLACKS like rev sharpton and lucie tondreau are MORE DANGEROUS to black people that white bigots and white prejudice against BLACKs ever could be


BLACK people do more damage to BLACK people than WHITEs are capable of .............going back to slavery whereby BLACKs went into the jungles of africa to kidnap other BLACKs to sell them to the WHITEs, white englishmen could never survive in those jungles and certainly couldn't kidnap BLACKs who lived in the jungles as their home - it took BLACKs to capture and kidnap and sell other BLACKs into SLAVERY = period


of course,  others have committed crimes,  but what jew who invested with madoff or investor of enron blames BLACKs for their financial troubles ? ! ?.........YET listen to all the BLACKs carry-on about how WHITE people are holding them down


the difference is - BLACKs don't want to admit rev sharpton is a criminal - BLACKs want to blame WHITE people for all their problems................WHITEs know and believe ken lay and bernie madoff were crooks and blame them,  not BLACK people

@frankd4 Frank, it's not up to "black" or "white" people to criminalize anyone. That is actually the job of Law Enforcement and the Justice System so yeah... I think most Americans expect Law Enforcement to do their job correctly since freedom is major tenet of our country's philosophy and it's something we expect the justice system to handle meticulously to ensure innocent people aren't going to jail (again with evidence and FACTS- not bias and immature emotions). 


You're the one that brought race into this argument so I'm not sure what you're talking about. 


Finally, Ms. Tondreau is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. She will be given a trial and a judge and jury will decide her fate. That's the right of every American facing criminal prosecution, whether black, white, Latino, Asian, etc.

@frankd4 Here's what you wrote:  "BLACKs don't want to admit rev sharpton is a criminal - BLACKs want to blame WHITE people for all their problems................WHITEs know and believe ken lay and bernie madoff were crooks and blame them,  not BLACK people"


I have a few questions for you: How did you come to these conclusions Frank? Did you take a survey of all black Americans in the US to see who they "blame" for all their problems in life? Exactly what percentage of the black population in the US blame all whites for their problems? Furthermore, what percent of black Americans support Rev. Al Sharpton and view all white people as more "dangerous" than blacks? What was your sample size for this study and did you adjust your findings for any outliers?


Also, did you poll all Haitian-Americans to determine their reactions to this latest story? How big was your sample size  on this particular topic (are you simply going off of a few comments on a blog site as your sample population? I would hope not Frank as that would be highly disappointing seeing how you are an expert on this issue!)


I'm a man of FACTS and LOGIC Frank (and not mere bigotry and misguided emotions), and I'd like you to support your claims. I find these generalizations a little hard to believe without evidence seeing that I am: A) a black male myself B) a Haitian-American who grew up in predominately Haitian and black  neighborhoods his entire life C) I don't know many blacks (specifically Haitians) who hold ANY of the views you listed. I  would appreciate it if you could enlighten me! 


I am really looking forward to hearing more about your research on this topic Frank :-P
