Perp walk! Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi and Sweetwater Mayor Manuel Marono Arrested By FBI

The Miami office of the FBI is now arresting South Florida politicians in pairs!

This morning the feds arrested the mayor of the historically-corrupt town of Sweetwater; and also the mayor of Miami Lakes.

The Miami Herald's Jay Weaver reports:
FBI agents Tuesday arrested the mayors of Miami Lakes and Sweetwater on bribery charges related to government contracts in their towns. Two lobbyists also were arrested.

Agents arrested Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi and Sweetwater Mayor Manuel “Manny” Maroño at their City Hall offices.

Pizzi and Maroño are expected to make their first appearances in Miami federal court Tuesday. The U.S. Attorney’s Office and FBI have scheduled a press conference after the hearing.

It’s not clear yet how the cases are related.
Weaver reports that:
Pizzi, who is serving his second term as mayor, has been in the public eye for years. He is an attorney and former federal probation officer who once worked for a high-profile criminal defense law firm.
"Pizzi drew attention to himself by helping lead the effort to recall a political nemesis, Miami-Dade Commissioner Natacha Seijas, in 2011.

He helped "lead the effort to recall" Natacha Seijas? That should count for something.

Maroño, on the other hand, is a Rick Scott supporter.
Well, so much for that.

  1. The study of the psychopath reveals an individual who is incapable of feeling guilt, remorse or empathy for their actions. They are generally cunning, manipulative and know the difference between right and wrong but dismiss it as applying to them.
    They are incapable of normal emotions such as love, generally react without considering the consequences of their actions and show extreme egocentric and narcissistic behavior.
