You're out Denis!

South Florida's worst politician - AKA Mayor Carlos Alvarez - today shipped chief of staff and long-time confidante Denis Morales back to the Miami-Dade police department.

The move bore an eerie resemblance to a classic scene from The Godfather when Michael Corleone demotes his Consigliere, Tom Hagen:
Tom: Maybe I could help.

Michael: You're out Tom.
It took Alvarez a full month to finally take action against Morales, who was caught stealing from the county working a second job while collecting his full county salary.
Denis Morales, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez's chief of staff and longtime confidante, is being moved back to the county police department following Miami Herald revelations that he worked a second job on county time in Panama.
Morales, who made $206,783 as the chief of staff, [which is more than the governor of Florida makes] will take a significant pay cut.

As a police sergeant, Morales' annual pay will be $77,492.
Alvarez's re-assignment of Morales comes just one day after the Herald reported that a referendum to recall the mayor had received the support of some county unions.

But that's probably just a coincidence.
