" The arrests come in the wake of news reports that the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service are investigating Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina for alleged loan sharking, mortgage fraud and tax evasion based on his dealings with Luis Felipe Perez, the 38-year-old mastermind behind the scam. Perez, aka "Felipito," is cooperating with authorities, allegedly providing information about Robaina and other supposed white collar criminals in the City of Progress."

So what this is no big deal this Mayor he be Cuban and he hate Castro that is all I concerned about.

He no more corrupt than vast majority here.

Since when is White collar crime considered bad in Miami?

What is this place coming to?

Arrest and put in jail forever the non Cuban who has an over-due library book but don't touch the countless white collar Cuban criminal politicians,city officials leave them be. I voted for them all.

Bernie Madoff proved that P.T.Barnum was absolutely right when he declared " There is a sucker born every minute". One wonders what kind and how many other schemes are out there that haven't surfaced yet. It's like going to Vegas. Don't play games with money you can't afford to lose.
