Published by CREW
On May 7, 2012, CREW sent a request under Florida’s Public Records Act to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for records of its investigation of former Florida State Representative and current U.S. Rep. David Rivera (R-FL). The FDLE found Rep. Rivera had set up a corporation to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments from a dog track pushing to legalize slot machines in Miami-Dade, even as he was voting on the issue in his role as a state senator. The FDLE also found Rep. Rivera used state campaign fund for personal expenses, and identified “possible criminal and ethical violations.” The state, however declined to bring charges, citing ineffective Florida laws and statute of limitations problems.
