State law requires that mail-in ballot requests be submitted by voters or their immediate family members. Suarez has said the 20 voters had given the campaign permission to file the requests and no one intentionally broke the law. No charges have been filed in the ongoing investigation.
Haramboure’s tweets about her job go back for more than a year. Some of the posts are in Spanish. Others are riddled with misspellings or abbreviations.
Take this post from March 20, 2012: “Man calls office: I need trash pick up on 28 st Me: That’s not our disctrict. Man: Do you know the city of Miami?! Me: Are u serious?? #dumb”
Or this one from two days later: “Sending a letter to the commissioner for him to help your neighborhood, without your address...this is what i deal w on a daily basis #locos”
Locos is Spanish for crazies.
Haramboure seemed to dislike much about her position.
“My dream job: one where I don’t have to be nice to any one. #thatsrightisaidit,” she posted on July 11, 2012.
Last week, Haramboure used explicit language to express her disdain for some of the constituents who elected her boss into office.
“Only the true morons come in here & want to circumvent me & speak to someone ‘more important’ #f--koff #ihateconstituents #forthemostpart,” she posted on Aug. 6.
The next day, she added: “So I’m a little dramatic on twitter today, but that’s what Twitter is for right??”
However, she had taken a more philosophical tone on Aug. 5. “You live, you learn,” she posted.
