Senator Gwen Margolis: Legislative Hero on Ethics, Rejected Genting Check! By Geniusofdespair
State Senator Gwen Margolis got a $500 check from Genting Casinos. Remember, she is in a position to vote on Florida gambling. She has told me she returned the check. This is a troubling contribution. If Democrat Margolis got one, I am sure everyone got one. Anyone else have a State legislative hero who rejected a Genting check? Or are all the rest shills — like State Rep. Erik Fresen — willing to rake in the money and then vote?
This isn’t the first time Margolis has been on the up and up. When her Godson had a vote before the County Commission on the Miami Circle property, she (then Chair of the County Commission) recused herself. Are you listening Barbara Jordan, who voted on Florida City Commons, that her BLOOD relative was presenting (her brother) and her BLOOD relative was representing as a lobbyist (her sister). Jordan should have recused herself.
