Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera is a generous big brother.
On October 09, 2008, about a month before then-state Rep. Lopez-Cantera won re-election by nearly 20 percentage points, his sister and her husband, a Miami-Dade police lieutenant, got into the electioneering business, forming High Ridge Consultants.
Eleven days later, Lopez- Cantera’s campaign cut High Ridge a $7,500 check — the first of several payments totaling $37,500 for claimed re-election campaign work done in 2008 and 2010.
Lopez Cantera’s all-in-the-family arrangement became the focus of a public corruption probe four years ago by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office into the alleged theft of campaign funds.
