This young woman, Ms. Soto, will find out in the long run that what she has on her hands is a mama’s boy past his 30’s. Armando and his wife found a way to reap a financial reward for their son after his losing the Osceola School Board race without him revealing any academic accreditations or a resume, but also found a way to postpone their little boy from marrying again, at least for another four years and did it creating just one ripple in the water. For the law to see that despite there being no marriage between these two that he certainly will not benefit from that 56K salary while she lives with him under the same roof is an insult to all county taxpayers. Not a penny towards the mortgage? For groceries? For electricity? For utilities? Water? Toilet paper? An olive and a slice of cheese? This move may have been legal, but it reeks of manure, especially from a man who ran on messages like “My platform is to be able to restore integrity for the county” and wanting to shake up what he considered a “good old boy network” operating in county government. His claim of running for office (practically every office for that matter) because he was dedicated to “serving the people” and that he was not doing this for himself certainly rings a little hollow now. I doubt he restored employee moral with a pay cut for them and a hefty salary for his son's live-in girlfriend. He ran his campaign on integrity and abandoned the voters the day after his victory with warp speed. This unethical and fly-by-night behavior had no other purpose but to secure the inner circle of this man's life, his wife and their son, the recipient of a joint ventured house with his parents, thousands of dollars in upgrades to his home thanks again to mommy and daddy, as well as their help with a generous assistance towards from them for his mortgage over the years to go with a new $56,000 salaried live-in girlfriend. All these things are just as shady as relocating from house to house in various districts just so you can run for a particular office.

My gurls Yara Sofia and Alexis Mateo told me that this place is really, really bad.

We were at the Lady and Sons restaurant last month and we hate Paula Deen. So Yara and Alexis and I binged on all the nasty horrible food that is there, and then went and vomited all over the bathroom, really smelly and horrible, and left it for other guests to have to smell and for the cleaning lady to have to clean it up. Yara even wrote left a message in lipstick on the mirror.
