MIAMI (AP) -- Mitt Romney held a campaign event Monday evening at a Miami juice shop owned by a convicted coc aine trafficker.
Romney appeared at El Palacio de los Jugos, which is owned by Reinaldo Bermudez. Court records show that Bermudez pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute coc aine in 1999 and served three years in federal prison.
Bermudez told the Miami New Times that the Secret Service vetted everything about him when the Romney campaign asked to use his fresh fruit and vegetable stand and that they knew about his criminal record.
That's one exposure..
.... the Obama campaign have decided to pull a Joe-the-Plumber routine on this guy, attacking him just for supporting the other side. Because it’s about time the public was reminded that the Obama campaign raised over $200,000 money this cycle from the Chicago-based brothers of a Mexican casino boss who jumped bail in the U.S. after being charged with drug crimes and fraud.
Of course, the campaign tried to play dumb--who knew that Carlos Cardona had tried to persuade the Democratic Party to have his fugitive brother Pepe pardoned? Who knew that Carlos and brother Alberto had roped other relatives into donating large sums to the Democratic National Committee, even after Democrats had been made aware of Pepe’s criminal ties, and the State Department had linked him to an assassination in Mexico?
In the end, the Obama campaign returned that cash. Just like Obama had to return some of the cash raised by convicted fraudster Tony Rezko--who, like former Illinois governor Rod Blagjevich, is sitting in federal prison while their old friend occupies the White House. ....
see the article for supporting links and more opinion
But there’s all kinds of tainted money Obama isn’t returning--like the cash raised by campaign co-chair Jan Schakowsky, whose husband Robert Creamer went to prison for check kiting and tax evasion--then emerged to work for the Obama campaign.
This is fun--and it will be more fun once we find out what’s in those Fast and Furious documents Obama’s been hiding. Perhaps Attorney General Eric Holder will have more questions to answer, on top of questions about possible perjury regarding the New Black Panther Party case. There was also the attempted bribe of Joe Sestak. Etc....
Could the master plan have been to allow the Obama Campaign to "reveal" this shocker and then be caught off guard?
....but here's something I have a problem with. If this guy did his time, why is he still considered a criminal? He paid his dues to society, and if I understand his charge correctly, it was a nonviolent crime. Is it "once a criminal, always a criminal"?

Just because he was a dealer doesn't mean he still is.
I used to be a sperm. But doesn't mean I still am today.
I would rather have anyone as a president than Obama. Just because I can't stand his stupid face and how he leeches any and all credit as his own.
