On September 25th, Addicting Info posted an article outlining the shenanigans Republican Rep. David Rivera has been getting up to in Florida. To recap: Representative Rivera is accused of financing a hotel manager, Justin Lamar Sternad, to run as a fake Democrat “ringer.” Sternad had never previously shown any political aspirations or interest in running for office. Although he has always gone by “Justin” before, Sternad chose to go by his middle name, Lamar, when mailing political flyers to predominately African-American communities while omitting a photo of his (Caucasian) face. The Sternad campaign flyers focused on typical Republican hot button issues like immigration and “making English the official language of the USA.” The goal was apparently to siphon votes — especially votes from black Democrats — away from Rivera’s political rival, Joe Moreno. Rivera had already been the target of some IRS, FBI and Miami-Dade County law enforcement investigations, so the Suits were no doubt interested when they heard Rivera might be up to something new: election fraud.
