Kathleen Fernandez Rundle is the Miami Dade County State Attorney, she took over after Janet Reno left in the 90s to go work for the Clinton Administration that’s how long she’s been in office.
She is a Democrat but gets more Republican votes then she does Democrats. The Republicans don’t run anyone against her because the Republicans would all knock each other out so by only having Democrats running it’s a general election and that keeps anyone who is more Progressive out.
It’s actually very common, if you want to flip a moderate district, you don’t run as a Republican, you change party affiliation and run as a Democrat so that way there is no primary and only a general election. So the progressive candidates cancel each other out and the ultra Conservative candidate wins with only 30% of the vote.
We’ve had almost two dozen cases of public corruption over in Miami and Hialeah and the Miami-Dade suburbs and she waits till right as the statute of limitation runs out before filing charges. The same thing with police corruption and fire department corruption.
If you get picked up with just a tiny bit of weed she will go after you with all of the resources of the state attorney’s office immediately because it’s an easy win in court and she can say ‘see, I win cases and put criminals in jail’.
This is why South Florida is a cesspool and is a representation of the courts in Florida.
