10/7/2019 REPUBLICAN BAGMEN DISCLOSURES: Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, et ux, SHOAR's Keiretsu, Lobbyist, Tree-killing Developers and Their Emetic Entourage Pump Money into Robert Hardwick's Sheriff's Campaign
"Money is the mother's milk of politics, " Jesse Unruh famously said.
Has once-promising St. Augustine Beach Police Department Chief (SABPD) Chief ROBERT HARDWICK sold out to a criminal Sheriff to win election?
You tell me. In a few days, has HARDWICK has gone from a promising reformer to an evasive frontman?
"Well, Richard [Robert], it profit a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world. But for Wales [St. Johns County]?"
-- Saint Thomas More, in Robert Bolt's play/movie, A Man For All Seasons.
American sociologist C. Wright Mills wrote about "competing elites." I've seen that covering the news from D.C. to Appalachia to St. Johns County,
Keep your sense of humor, folks, because as Bette Davis once said, in All About Eve, "we're in for a bumpy night."
ROBERT HARDWICK believes that Michelle O'Connell did not commit suicide. He wanted an autopsy. He was frustrated by his boss, State's Attorney RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA, who halted it.
A later exhumation and autopsy revealed that Michelle O'Connell's jaw was broken the night of September 2, 2010, when she died of gunshot wounds in Deputy JEREMY BANKS' service weapon in BANKS' home at 4700 Sherlock Place in Southern rural St. Johns County, a case that is a stench in the nostrils of our Nation and our planet, reported in The New York Times, PBS Frontline, et al,
SABPD ROBERT HARDWICK, we hardly knew ye: I am very disappointed.
Upon Florida Politics reports by A.G. Gancarski of his expected contributions, HARDWICK declined comment earlier this night, eschewing his thoughts on taking money from at least one vendor of St, Johns County Sheriff's Department, lobbyist THOMAS MARTIN FIORENTINO, JR., because he was "in uniform." It's after 5 AM the next day.
Cowardly ROB HARDWICK's never called me back.
SABPD Police Chief ROBERT HARDWICK ignored my suggestion on Memorial Day, dupily allowing corrupt Sheriff DAVID SHOAR to contaminate him with an endorsement.
HARDWICKS's wealthy contributors include concealed corporate interests, including foreign investors and their lobbyists. Who are the actual owners and investors of these Limited Liability Corporations.
HARDWICK's unethical, tree-killing, influence-buying developer contributors include at least one St. Johns County Sheriff's office vendor, controversial Republican lobbyist-bundler-bagman, wicked evil corporate lawyer, THOMAS MARTIN FIORENTINO.
Republican Bagman THOMAS MARTIN FIORENTINO says he's worked for St. Johns County (over half million dollars without reportable results.
Republican Bagman THOMAS MARTIN FIORENTIONO claimed he's worked for ]the City of St. Augustine (no proof).
Republican Bagman THOMAS MARTIN FIORENTIBO has worked for the City of Jacksonville, JEA, JTA, NOCATEE, PARC GROUP, and its family of companies for HARDWICK.
The keiretsu of developer louts and loonies counts contributions from corrupt former St. Augustine Mayor JOSEPH LESTER BOLES, JR. and corrupt soon-to-be-ex-St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, as well as lawbreaking former Deputy SABPD Chief RICHARD PARKER a/k/a "PORKER," who was apparently let go from SABPD for repeated First Amendment violations, never punished.
HARDWICK's corrupt crew of contributors include lawyer MAC McLEOD, who filed a baseless lawsuit against FDLE Special Agent Rusty Ray Rodgers, Jr. , poured out in federal court, over his righteous investigation of Deputy JEREMY BANKS for the September 2, 2010 homicide of Ms. Michelle O'Connell in BANKS' home with BANKS' gun.
Horrible judgment in taking money from thugs, mugs and wrongdoers.
They include disgraced former St. Augustine Mayor JOSEPH LESTER BOLES, JR.
Who's running this campaign?
Not one expenditure revealed, but it will be revealing to read next month.
The whole world is watching.
ROB HARDWICK, are you now one of the whores working for environmentally-devastating "developers" and their corrupt Republican political machine in St. Johns County, including Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, a nebbish other-directed energumen who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994?
Here's your first campaign disclosure, showing lots of money raised -- as my late mentor the Honorable Nahum Litt would say, Cui bono? (Who benefits?)
